The historic day that saved Apple from becoming a computer industry footnote, thanks to the return of Steve Jobs, is revealed in a new batch of rare photos.
The slacker guy who once embodied the image of Mac users in Apple's old television commercials is set to play Steve Jobs in a new comedy film about the CEO's life.
The late Steve Jobs was one of the leading innovators of the last 20 years. International tributes began just after his death, and a new monument continues that effort.
We now know why Apple went on an uncharacteristically high profile Tim Cook publicity campaign earlier this month, the company was likely jockeying for the coveted Time Person of the Year cover. Alas, Cook has been named runner-up, losing to President Obama. But he still got the cover treatment, and he's in great company.
Pixar, a company that Steve Jobs heavily invested in, served as Chief Executive for and eventually sold to Disney, has named its new headquarters in his memory. A Pixar employee tweeted the photo you see here on Wednesday.
Despite Apple's reputation for high-than-average prices and attention to fit and finish, the late Steve Jobs, a billionaire, was known for avoiding any outward trappings of wealth. But toward the end of this life he reportedly indulged in one guilty pleasure, a massive super yacht, which just made its public debut in Europe.
Today is the one-year anniversary of the death of Steve Jobs and the tributes and remembrances of the tech icon's life have been surfacing all week. But Apple made the biggest statement today by devoting its homepage to a video retrospective of Jobs' life.
Following the report of Steve Jobs' house getting burglarized is news that the late Apple CEO's iPad ended up in the hands of a local clown. And what did the clown use it for? Apparently, he used it as a giant iPod to entertain Bay Area children and tourists. Go figure.
Police in Santa Clara county California have confirmed that a man has been arrested following a July robbery at the home of the late Steve Jobs, and that over $70,000 worth of computers and other goods were taken.
This May, the Smithsonian's S. Dillon Ripley Center opened up "The Patents and Trademarks of Steve Jobs: Art and Technology that Changed the World." The traveling exhibit, which features the many, many patents of Steve Jobs, was designed by the National Inventors Hall of Fame and Museum and is fairly breathtaking for being 312 pieces of paper. Consisting of 30 display panels that are each four feet wide, eight tall and shaped like the face of an iPhone, the exhibit displays facsimiles of 312 of the 317 different patents that Steve Jobs acquired. It also has a case with an a 1984 Apple Macintosh Computer; a 1992 NeXT monitor, sound box, microcomputer, keyboard and mouse; and a 2003 Apple iPod, which was the first to feature a discrete touch-sensitive click wheel as opposed to one with distinct mechanical buttons. We chatted with Richard Maulsby, Associate Commissioner for Innovation Development at the U.S. Patent and Trade Office, who told us: "I think what we endeavored to do with the exhibit is capture not just the quality but the breadth of this man's innovation genius."
