Steve Jobs, famously cruel and temperamental as the CEO of Apple (AAPL), was equally humiliating to waiters, friends and even one of his 1970s hacker heroes, John Draper.

Jobs let Brenann have the master bedroom – for a month. Then, out of the blue, he changed his mind and moved Brennan out so he could have the bigger room.
