The first Steve Jobs movie was pretty terrible. Shortly after his death, two movies were said to be in the works. The first, rushed and ham-handed, only set the stage for the second, a big-budget hollywood affair. It seems as though on big star, Leonardo DiCaprio, is no longer interested in playing Steve Jobs.
The iPad mini may be one of Apple's hit products, but controversy over whether a smaller version of the tablet was right for the range has reignited after one board member described it as a case of Tim Cook's vision of Apple versus that of Steve Jobs. The former chief executive was notoriously contemptuous of smaller tablets, with Apple board member Robert A. Iger crediting Cook with the vision to push the iPad mini.
Apple CEO Tim Cook may be building a smartwatch but he's taken a hands-off approach to the rumored wrist-worn wearable, it's suggested, at odds to the notoriously micro-managing Steve Jobs. Development of the so-called "iWatch" has seen Cook delegate the details of its creation to his executive team, according to new leaks, including design chief Jony Ive, while the CEO takes a more over-arching view of Apple's wearables strategy.
Sony Pictures has been working for a while to get a movie based on the life of Apple's late CEO Steve Jobs into production. Originally, the film had David Fincher tapped as director, but he stepped away from the project after a fight over a $10 million fee for the film. Sony Pictures is now eyeing a new director for the project.
Apple, at least under Jobs' regime, almost never or only so rarely grants interviews, so when it gave Sunday Times the probably once in a lifetime chance to talk to Jonathan Ive, not even the sudden and almost inexplicable downpour in California will stop it. Thanks to that, we are able to get some insight into the thoughts of the man who designed some of the world's most iconic products.
A year before he died, Steve Jobs let it be known to Apple's top 100 employees that the company should not release a TV as its next product. This revelation came from Yukari Iwatani Kane, Wall Street Journal's former Apple beat reporter and author of a new book about Apple's post-Jobs days.
Steve Jobs will be featured on a 2015 collectable postage stamp, a new leak suggests, with the former Apple CEO one of a number of cultural figures selected by the US Postal Service. The leaked list - which also includes Peanuts, John Lennon of the Beatles, and Harvey Milk - also confirms some of the reissued stamps, such as Elvis Presley, which was the top-selling stamp the Postal Service saw.
Back in September of 2013, we found out that a long lost time capsule that had lots of stuff inside; including Steve Jobs' mouse had been found. The time capsule was buried during the Aspen International Design conference in 1983. Jobs was on hand at that conference where he delivered a talk about technologies.
It's thirty years since the birth of Apple's Mac, and new footage showing Steve Jobs' second, longer demonstration of the new computer has emerged to commemorate the anniversary. Coming only days after Apple co-founder Jobs revealed the Macintosh at the company's shareholder meeting on January 24th, the second appearance was a ninety minute demo at the Boston Computer Society, which has unearthed the full footage that you can watch after the cut.
