The Zen of Steve Jobs – A graphic novel

 BY THE APPLE GIRL

Creative agency Jess3 has collaborated with Forbes to produce a 80 page graphic novel of Steve Jobs when he was fired from Apple. The book goes in detail about the relationship of Jobs with the Zen Buddhist priest Kobun Chino Otagawa, who was a maverick himself. It focuses on Jobs’ intensive study with Kobun and the impact it had on Steve’s career and design philosophy. The book explores how Jobs’ might have honed his design aesthetic via Eastern religion to identify only what he needs and leave the rest behind. It sounds to me as an interesting read!

From Steve Jobs Biography “I’m going to destroy Android”

 BY THE APPLE GIRL

Steve Jobs’ biography by Walter Isaacson is expected for release on October 24. The Associated Press obtained an early copy of the book, and shared some highlights about it.

On HTC’s introduction of an Android phone that boasted much of the popular features of the iPhone, the book says that Steve called it a “grand theft”

“I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple’s $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong,” Jobs said. “I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”

Jobs used an expletive to describe Android and Google Docs, Google’s Internet-based word processing program. In a subsequent meeting with Schmidt at a Palo Alto, Calif., cafe, Jobs told Schmidt that he wasn’t interested in settling the lawsuit, the book says.

“I don’t want your money. If you offer me $5 billion, I won’t want it. I’ve got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, that’s all I want.” 

The biography also hints a new product that Apple may have in the pipeline – an integrated HDTV

“‘I’d like to create an integrated television set that is completely easy to use,’ he told me. ‘It would be seamlessly synced with all of your devices and with iCloud.’ No longer would users have to fiddle with complex remotes for DVD players and cable channels. ‘It will have the simplest user interface you could imagine. I finally cracked it.'”

Apple’s design guru, Jonathan Ive is also spoken about in the book. 

He called Jonathan Ive, Apple’s design chief, his “spiritual partner” at Apple. He told Isaacson that Ive had “more operation power” at Apple than anyone besides Jobs himself — that there’s no one at the company who can tell Ive what to do. That, says Jobs, is “the way I set it up.”

Ive, Apple’s Senior Vice President for Industrial Design, has been at Apple for nearly 20 years and is responsible for the iconic product designs that the company has released.   

The biography has been having record pre-orders. If you haven’t yet ordered the best Steve Jobs memorabilia, then do so now 🙂 You can order it here.

Steve Jobs Memorabilia – Time Magazine

 BY THE APPLE GIRL
Times magazine rescheduled its print run this week to release its tribute to the “Inventor of the future”. On release, the Times copy will be available here and its expected release date is Friday Oct 6. Perhaps this is the last paper magazine copy I would buy.
In a preview of what is to come, Walter Isaacson, in his essay describes the day Jobs pitched the idea of Isaacson writing his biography.

“In the early summer of 2004, I got a phone call from him. He had been scattershot friendly to me over the years, with occasional bursts of intensity, especially when he was launching a new product that he wanted on the cover of Time or featured on CNN, places where I’d worked. But now that I was no longer at either of those places, I hadn’t heard from him much. We talked a bit about the Aspen Institute, which I had recently joined, and I invited him to speak at our summer campus in Colorado. He’d be happy to come, he said, but not to be onstage. He wanted, instead, to take a walk so we could talk.

That seemed a bit odd. I didn’t yet know that taking a long walk was his preferred way to have a serious conversation. It turned out that he wanted me to write a biography of him. I had recently published one on Benjamin Franklin and was writing one about Albert Einstein, and my initial reaction was to wonder, half jokingly, whether he saw himself as the natural successor in that sequence. Because I assumed that he was still in the middle of an oscillating career that had many more ups and downs left, I demurred. Not now, I said. Maybe in a decade or two, when you retire.

But I later realized that he had called me just before he was going to be operated on for cancer for the first time. As I watched him battle that disease, with an awesome intensity combined with an astonishing emotional romanticism, I came to find him deeply compelling, and I realized how much his personality was ingrained in the products he created. His passions, demons, desires, artistry, devilry and obsession for control were integrally connected to his approach to business, so I decided to try to write his tale as a case study in creativity.”

In another excerpt that 9to5mac has posted, Steve reiterates his love for his family.

“A few weeks ago, I visited Jobs for the last time in his Palo Alto, Calif., home. He had moved to a downstairs bedroom because he was too weak to go up and down stairs. He was curled up in some pain, but his mind was still sharp and his humor vibrant. We talked about his childhood, and he gave me some pictures of his father and family to use in my biography. As a writer, I was used to being detached, but I was hit by a wave of sadness as I tried to say goodbye. In order to mask my emotion, I asked the one question that was still puzzling me: Why had he been so eager, during close to 50 interviews and conversations over the course of two years, to open up so much for a book when he was usually so private? “I wanted my kids to know me,” he said. “I wasn’t always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and to understand what I did.”
