When Apple’s CEO and figurehead, Steve Jobs passed away this year, many feared that Apple would be left adrift without their creative leader. It is well known that Jobs himself had a firsthand role in the development of Apple’s most successful products.
“We honestly have just been sitting around for months with no idea what to do.” said Apple’s Senior VP of Industrial Design, Jony Ive this week. “But then I read the Steve Jobs biography, and it’s just full of ideas! Have you guys read it? There’s a whole part about this new kind of Apple TV, it’s amazing. And then the chapter about how to make the 15” MacBook Air work, I really couldn’t figure it out. Steve really was a unique talent in this industry.”
The book includes detailed schematics of the next three generations of the iPhone, iPod and iMac. No Mac Pro tower is detailed, but the book does specify that Apple will no longer be focusing on support for the professional market in the upcoming years. Ive continued to sing praises for the late Jobs’ biography: “It’s amazing that Steve was able to code much of OS X 10.8 Snow Lion and OS XI Brontosaurus, and it was just such a stroke of luck for us that Isaacson was able to print it all in this wonderful book. And I can’t tell you how relieved I am to be able to start some real work on the iBrain. According to the book, it’s going to be revolutionary.”
Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs has been available for several months now, and includes Jobs’ favourite oatmeal cookie recipe as well as most of Apple’s banking information.
It’s already one of the fastest selling books of the year, but it turns out that Walter Isaacson’s biography of Apple’s late CEO, Steve Jobs, is coming under fire for allegedly exaggerating some of the events of Jobs’ life.
Gregory Jamieson, who recently finished reading the book tells Apple Inquisition, “It’s 656 pages of… I don’t even know what.” Jamieson has always considered himself an Apple fan, but he, like many others, doesn’t know what to make of the new biography. “Most of the book is just some people talking about going to a fair. And then the parts that are actually about Jobs are a little unbelievable. I know he was a great innovator, but I think it’s pretty obvious that he did not cure cancer, as the book claims.”
“Several chapters were just old TV Guide listings,” nitpicked reader Mary Fleischmann, of Williamsburg, PA. “It was very confusing. Reading about his design inspirations for the original iPod was fascinating, but I was shocked to learn that he spent seven years in a wizarding school.”
Because Jobs led a very private life, many of the Isaacson’s accounts are difficult to verify. But if there is one message that we can take away from the book in which about a quarter of the pages are blank, it’s this: Steve Jobs made the dinosaurs extinct.
