According to Mike Rosenberg of Mercury News, they even sent each owner one of Silicon Valley’s most celebrated inventions, the iPad. That wasn’t all, when the owners open the box, a magnetic sensor lauches a pre-loaded video with a messege from San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, and others including,  49ers legends Steve Young, former coach George Seifert, CEO Jed York, along with other in their efforts to gain the approval of the other owners.
