Weâ€™re all well-used by now to the various cryptic and often fairly taciturn emails that Apple CEO Steve Jobs occasionally writes to humble Apple customers in reply to questions. According to a report on MacRumors though, Jobs doesnâ€™t just content himself with sending emails from his iPad, he even recently picked up the phone and spoke to a developer of a rejected iPad app who emailed him to complain about his app being knocked back. Apparently, just two hours after sending his email, Seattle developer Ram Arumugam received a surprise phone call from Jobs, and the two then had a conversation about Arumugamâ€™s rejected app, â€œEconomy for iPadâ€. Jobs explained that the app had initially been rejected because of the use of a private API to deal with a bug relating to the iPadâ€™s onscreen keyboard. Arumugam agreed to remove the private API, with the result being that Economy for iPad was then accepted in the App Store. Now thatâ€™s what you call real personal service from a CEO!

Now excuse me while I go and compose my email asking Steve Jobs what level heâ€™s up to in Angry Birds.
