Steve Jobs Approves New Bio to Be Published in 2012

Steve Jobs has finally given his seal of approval to a new book about his life. Walter Isaacson's 'iSteve: The Book of Jobs' is slated for release in early 2012, marking the first time that the Apple CEO has participated in a biography. Isaacson, who has been working on the book since 2009, reportedly interviewed members of Jobs' family, his colleagues at Apple and, of course, the man himself....

Barack Obama Has a Computer and an iPad, Because He's the President

As President of the United States, Barack Obama gets to enjoy some pretty sweet perks. Big house, private jet, personal chef -- and yes, his very own computer. He has an iPad, too, in case you were wondering. Univision's Jorge Ramos posed these hard-hitting questions during a recent interview with the President, who replied with a blank stare, before coolly reminding Ramos that he's the Preside...

The Brains Behind 'Brain,' World's First PC Virus

The world's first PC virus, known as 'Brain,' was brought to life 25 years ago by two brothers in Pakistan. Mikko Hypponen, a researcher at F-Secure, was among the first to analyze Brain, and, after reverse engineering the virus, eventually discovered a hidden nugget of information. Buried within Brain's code was a short block of text, which revealed the phone number and address of the place wh...

Anonymous Takes Down Westboro Baptist Church Website During Live Interview

Say what you will about Anonymous, but it's hard to deny that the group has a flair for the dramatic. Yesterday, the collective ambushed one of the Westboro Baptist Church's websites, during a live joint interview on 'The David Pakman Show' of a WBC member and an Anonymous member. Throughout the segment, a member of Anonymous went back and forth with an incomprehensibly annoying church repre...

Julian Assange Defends WikiLeaks, Manning and Free Press on '60 Minutes'

Share Last night, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange sat down for a rare, extended interview with Steve Kroft of '60 Minutes.' In what CBS has called Assange's "most extensive television interview to date," the Australian national defended his organization's mission, discussed the roots of his own anti-authoritarian philosophy, and compared WikiLeaks' core principles to "those of the U.S. Revol...

Playboy Publishes 1985 Interview With 29-Year-Old Steve Jobs

Long before the iPad, the iPod and even the iMac, Apple was a powerful force. Take a glimpse 25 years into the past, and into the young mind of Steve Jobs, with this 1985 Playboy interview. With decades of turbulence and success still in front of him, the 29-year-old Jobs is mature beyond his years (and clearly enchanted with Dylan, beach sex, and LSD)....

Dubya Gets iPad to Read About iRaq and iRan

It seems like only yesterday that an ingenuous, doe-eyed George W. Bush was innocently extolling the virtues of the ol' Internets. Well, a touching talk with Matt Lauer (previewed in advance of tonight's interview special on NBC) indicates that our W. has finally shed his n00b status. The former President recently made his Facebook debut, and he now apparently owns an iPad, too. Bush purportedly ...

Jim Campbell's 'Scattered Light', a Colossal Sculpture of Luminous Pixels

Share "Most of these works -- if you pause them -- you can't tell what you're looking at," says artist Jim Campbell, as his newest installation flickers in the background. 'Scattered Light' is a 50-foot-long array on an 80-foot wide, 16-foot-high and 16-foot-deep structure supporting over 1,600 lightbulbs fitted with LEDs, which are programmed to display a low-resolution, moving image as individu...

Keanu Reeves Didn't Know About 'Sad Keanu,' But Now He Does

Keanu Reeves may know a lot of things, but when it comes to his online presence, he seems pretty clueless. In a recent interview with the "actor," New York Magazine's Vulture asked Reeves about his innermost thoughts on 'Sad Keanu.' The image of Keanu eating a sandwich has become a meme, complete with a ton of requisite, creatively photoshopped versions. Reeves, perhaps not surprisingly, had no id...

Jennifer Steinkamp, Digital Artist, Talks Animation and Abstraction

"Computers always want to be annoying," says Los Angeles-base artist Jennifer Steinkamp, as we discuss the installation of her current solo show in New York. She has ample reason to to worry about technology, given that her chosen medium -- 3-D animation -- is entirely computer based. Still, she takes the glitches in stride, as natural consequences of reliance on the digital. "It's just annoyance...

We Translate James Cameron's Popular Mechanics Interview on 3-D Backlash

The neo-Mephistopheles of cinema, James Cameron, just gave an interview to Popular Mechanics about the current consumer backlash to 3-D. Pop Mech was able to ask four simple questions (if you count "That's an interesting point" as a question), to which the director responded with his typically overblown bravado. Follow along as we translate Cameron's responses for those who can't speak hyperbo...

Talking Cyber-Security With Homeland Security Advisor (and Former Hacker) Jeff Moss

Share To get a look at the world of cyber-security from an insider, Switched turned to noted and notorious hacker Jeff Moss, a.k.a Dark Tangent. Moss got his start hacking the phone system before founding DefCon, the long-running annual hacker convention in Las Vegas, in 1992. He then took his l337 skillz to big industry by founding the network security consultancy firm Black Hat. Moss's desce...

How a Geek Can Bomb a Job Interview

While usually well-intentioned, geeks are often awkward in social situations. (No, Facebook doesn't count.) We're talking about face-to-face conversation. Short of a permanent power outage, it might be the geek's worst nightmare. We understand nerves can get the best of a person sometimes. Nonetheless, there are times when direct communication is simply unavoidable. For example, a job interview. N...

Atari and Chuck E. Cheese's Founder Writing Sci-Fi Book

Nolan Bushnell has always been a man slightly ahead of his time. After co-founding Atari in 1972 -- and some might say the video game industry as a whole -- he was forced from the company just before it became a multi-billion dollar business. He followed that up by launching the Chuck E. Cheese's restaurant chain, but again left the company in the mid-'80s over a disagreement with management. (...

Skater Stevie Williams on Watches, Gadgets, and Time-Killers

At last night's G-Shock "Shock the World" event, we caught up with pro skateboarder and soon-to-be watch-designer Stevie Williams to ask about his gadgets du jour. The event was packed with watch aficionados, Williams among them (as a G-Shock ambassador who is anticipating his own watch design). Last night also saw the debut of tattoo artist Mr. Cartoon's clown-emblazoned timepiece, of course, but...
