Originally scheduled for release in early 2012 and first bumped up to November, former Time magazine managing editor Walter Isaacson’s official biography of Steve Jobs is now in stores -- and if you happened to preorder it as a Kindle title via Amazon, you might have gotten it a little early, too.
Well despite some sad pandas in the financial prediction racket, Apple is hot hot hot. Sure, their last quarter sales were a wee bit lower than expected, but that was merely the collective intake of breath before the new model iPhone debuted. Naturally you wait until the new handset is out and with the iOS device line driving Apple's profitability, who didn't predict this? Apparently Wall Street. Anyway, Apple's hot whether they like it or not and here's some more weekly hotness.
"We have something really exciting for you today."
The world wasn’t watching when Steve Jobs took the stage 10 years ago with “the promise of unveiling a breakthrough digital device.” There was no raucous applause break when he slid what he called the iPod out of his pocket, and none of the invited attendees hooted or hollered during the flawless demo.
“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.
The big news of the day is undoubtedly Apple’s fourth-quarter results for fiscal 2011, but that’s hardly the only thing making news today. Today we’ve got a bum Apple TV update, a cool new version of Fantastical with editing support, more iPad mini rumors and more worth reading about for this fine Tuesday, October 18, 2011.
There may not have been a new iPhone this past summer, but Apple continued to ride high in its fiscal fourth quarter anyway, reporting record sales of the Mac and iPad product lines as well as the company’s highest September quarter revenue and earnings ever -- but go figure, the analysts are looking at the glass as half empty anyway.
Those of us who ponied up for a new iPhone 4S in the last week -- which according to Apple, is more than four million! -- finally got to spend our first weekend with it and now get back to our normal routine as the start of the work week is here again. But so far, the week is looking up and there’s plenty to report for this fine Monday, October 17, 2011.
It's been a few days since Steve Jobs' passing, but that doesn't mean the Memorials have stopped flowing in. I mean, geez, I even walked by a smaller Apple Store yesterday in Emeryville, CA and there was a tiny little memorial dedicated to Steve in the window. Here's a look at some of the more substantial memorials around the world. Feel free to contribute your own photos by emailing me.
It was both a blessing and a curse to be an Apple fan last week, with the iPhone 4S announcement immediately overshadowed the death of co-founder Steve Jobs. But now, the second full week of October is in full swing, with more than a million preordered iPhone 4S units headed to customers this Friday. Here’s what else is making news for Monday, October 10, 2011.
