A tart e-mail response from Apple chief executive Steve Jobs, sent to a C.W. Post student this fall, is ranked No. 4 on an online list of "The Top 10 Steve Jobs Quotes of 2010."

The student was Chelsea Kate Isaacs, 22, of the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University.

Isaacs got the Jobs putdown after she complained that Apple's media department had ignored her request for information she wanted for a school essay on the iPad.

Here are (in reverse order) the top four Jobs quotes, according to, which also supplies the context for each quote: 

4. "Please leave us alone," Jobs wrote to Isaacs.
3. "I'm sorry about your girlfriend. Life is fragile."
2. "My sex life is pretty good these days, Walt. How's yours?"
1. "We're not perfect."
