Looks like it's going to take a little longer than expected for Apple's new spaceship-style campus to touch down in Cupertino now that the iPhone maker has revised its plans and pushed back the completion date.
In case you missed it Sunday night, CBS News has now posted the full Steve Jobs profile with official biographer Walter Isaacson for online viewing -- and if that’s not enough, Apple has posted an 80-minute video from the company’s own private tribute to the man for all to see.
“Hump Day” is here again, with Apple celebrating the life of Steve Jobs in a private ceremony held earlier today on the company’s Cupertino campus (and simulcast to Apple retail stores worldwide). The Apple co-founder continues to be memorialized ahead of his official biography which hits stores on Monday (more on that in a moment), but here’s what else is happening around the internet for this Wednesday, October 19, 2011.
Even though most of us never got an opportunity to meet Apple co-founder Steve Jobs in person, we still felt a connection to the man, the myth, the legend through the products he introduced. Now, Apple has collected emails from more than a million of you in a new page on the company’s website.
Of all the news items we report here at MacLife.com, writing about the death of Apple co-founder Jobs at age 56 is certainly the one we’ve dreaded the most. By now, co-workers, celebrities, politicians, journalists and even regular folks who simply love Apple products have all chimed in on the news. We woke up this morning in a world with one less visionary -- particularly difficult when there are so few of them to begin with. Here’s a recap of related news and events for Thursday, October 6.
It’s a date! Apple has made the rumored October 4 media event official on Tuesday morning with an invitation for the media to attend a shindig on Apple’s own campus. And there’s no mistaking what this event is about, because the subject of the invite makes it clear: “Let’s talk iPhone.”
When your company continually grows by leaps and bounds, you gotta have room for all those employees, right? Apple sure thinks so. Due to said growth, Cupertino Mayor Gilbert Wong has mentioned that Apple executives are already in the planning stages for a third Apple campus, after completion of the "spaceship" campus.
Most folks say that May 6, 1998 -- the day that Steve Jobs introduced the then-revolutionary iMac to a wowed Cupertino crowd -- was the day that Apple was reborn. They’re wrong.
The iMac did indeed pull Apple Computer out of its seemingly irreversible death spiral, but the computer maker remained a small player in a field dominated by others. The day that today’s Apple was born occurred 10 years ago this month.
