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....

Eric Schmidt (Slightly) More Popular Than Steve Jobs, Employee Survey Says

Eric Schmidt may no longer be the CEO of Google, but he's still more popular at his office than Steve Jobs is at his. Schmidt finished his Google tenure with an approval rating of 96-percent, according to an employee survey conducted by Glassdoor.com. That score was barely enough to edge out Jobs, who boasts a piddly 95-percent approval rating, down from 98-percent last year. The biggest loser?...

Bon Jovi Blames Steve Jobs For Ruining Music

Was it rampant pirating that killed the music industry? The ease of sharing digital files? DRM limitations? If you thought it was any of those, you are clearly a mere mortal. Superstar Jon Bon Jovi has been mulling this over, and finally came to the conclusion that Steve Jobs is "personally responsible for killing the music business." Bon Jovi's bizarre comment is from an interview with Britain's...

Apple Sells 1 Million iPads During Debut Weekend, Completing 1 Million Lives

Big news, you guys: Apple sold a lot of iPad 2s over the weekend. How many? Nearly a million. Granted, another big opening weekend may seem about as newsworthy as a sunrise, but take a second to chew on this: most analysts expected Apple to move only about 350,000 to 400,000 tablets. Instead, the company ended up selling about three times as many as it did last April, when it unveiled the first...

Obama Talks Education, Innovation With Zuckerberg, Jobs at Private Dinner

Yesterday, Barack Obama held a private meeting with a dozen Silicon Valley luminaries, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Apple's Steve Jobs and heavyweights from Twitter and Google. During the two-hour dinner, Obama reportedly discussed his ideas on investments in education and a proposed public-private partnership geared toward helping startups and small businesses get off the ground....

Steve Jobs Says He's Going on Medical Leave, Tim Cook to Lead Apple in Interim

Apple CEO Steve Jobs is going on a leave of absence, in order to devote more attention to his health. In an e-mail sent to all Apple employees, Jobs confirmed that the company's board of directors had obliged his request for medical leave, but assured that he wasn't relinquishing his position. "I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company," he wrote. In...

Apple Fanboys Love Steve Jobs Action Figure, Apple Doesn't

Seeing as Apple's CEO likely wouldn't know what to do with a kung-fu grip, let alone a rocket launcher, the Steve Jobs action figure strikes us as problematic. (Maybe the "action" lies in the market-analysis skills of that oversized noggin.) Some folks, though, don't see the problem with it. Manufacturer MIC quickly unloaded the 300-figure run -- before Apple demanded that it cease and desist. ...

Woz Says Android Will Dominate iOS, Jobs Stabs His Woz Voodoo Doll

It's a shame that Steve Wozniak is no longer with Apple. He'd be the perfect foil to Steve Jobs's inscrutable megalomania. He seems affable, self-deprecating and (perhaps most refreshingly) brutally honest. He's never shied away from pointing out what he perceives as flaws in the company he co-founded or its products. And his latest assertion about the iPhone will definitely irk his former...

Seminal Piece of Apple History Lands on the Auction Block

Occasionally, vintage tech treasures materialize and propel geeks into a nerdly frenzy. Not too long ago, 'Star Trek' creator Gene Roddenberry's vintage Apple console seemingly represented the pinnacle of dorky computer collectors' items. That ancient relic now appears relatively boring compared to one recently unearthed Apple prize, though. An incredibly rare, original 1976 Apple-1 has appeared,...

Vintage Steve Jobs Business Card Shamefully Lacks Core Status Symbols

Vintage-tech products and retro-gadget ads enable modern geeks to mercilessly mock the already antiquated practices of the not-too-distant past. Embarrassing and amusing bits of nostalgia frequently materialize, including company newsletters, hilarious tech tutorials and even awkward '80s dating shows. Pascall Finette, the head of Mozilla Labs, purportedly unearthed an authentic and priceless...

Steve Jobs: 7-Inch Tablets Are Too Small to Compete

What makes the iPad superior to every other tablet on the market? According to Steve Jobs, it boils down to one thing: size. During yesterday's earnings call, Apple's CEO, as you'd expect, spent a lot of time talking about how Apple's products are way better than anything else mankind has ever known. RIM's business model, according to Jobs, is intrinsically flawed, leading him to conclude that...

Animated Steve Jobs Caught With Ninja Stars

The tubes have been circulating reports that Steve Jobs was stopped at a Japanese airport after being found with throwing stars in his carry-on. Apple denies the rumor, but that hasn't stopped our favorite animated news source from speculating how the incident might have transpired. Here's a hint: that black turtleneck is functional as well as fashionable. Video after the break....

Apple Relaxes iOS Developer Restrictions, But Doesn't 'Need Any More Fart Apps'

Apple turned a lot of heads this morning when it unexpectedly opened the App Store to apps created with third-party development programs -- including, apparently, those using Adobe Flash. In a news release posted on its site, Apple declared that it would be "relaxing all restrictions on the development tools used to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download any code." The...

Tech on the 'Mad Men' Set, iPhones and iPads to Remote Control Apple TV

There's a load of great tech news happening out there every day, and, unfortunately, we just can't cover it all.

[From: Core77] Steve Jobs may have skipped over it during today's Apple event,...

Zuckerberg Crowned 'New Caesar' by Vanity Fair, Tops List of 100 Most Influential

Vanity Fair will bow to Silicon Valley in its October issue, which will see the magazine's annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Lo and behold, Mark Zuckerberg takes the number one spot: "This year Vanity Fair anoints Zuck as our new Caesar. He rules from the imperial capital of Palo Alto, California, the Rome of our nascent millennium." Although VF kind of glosses over...
