Jobs

Jobs1

The story of Steve Jobs’ ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century.

Jobs2

You could tell these guys wanted this movie, they wanted to make it, Steve Jobs is just that much of a legend that people wanted to get his story across, especially Ashton Kutcher. The similarity between him and Steve Jobs is uncanny, its honestly frightening how similar he looked. But even with all the things they tried to get right as Steve Jobs grew from being in College and rejoining Apple at the later stage the story felt like it was missing. For most people they would enjoy the movie, but a lot of us are very familiar with history of Apple for the past 10 years and reading a few books after his passing brought more of his story to light. This movie didn’t do him justice as Steve Jobs more of the story or a different part of it could have been told to bring it across better.

Jobs – Trailer

The story of Steve Jobs’ ascension from college dropout into one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of the 20th century.

I think everyone was sad with Steve Jobs passing, over time this man proved to be a legend and an innovator and motivator. There are many people who hated him and loved him, but everyone respected him. After watching the trailer, I really think that Ashton Kutcher can pull it off, and he really seems to fit, I’m looking forward to watching this.

Now Both iPod Nano’s Are Gone

LunaTikDeadNano

The iPad Nano with my LunaTik were the perfect combination for the longest time, especially when riding. I remember when I first got the LunaTik in May 2011, it was the main reason I got the iPod Nano, it was the perfect fit for riding and controlling the music, right from my wrist, I can make changes without having to open my jacket.

The iPod Nano with the black plastic strap died in December of 2012, but the Nano with the Red LunaTik frame died this past weekend, exactly two years since I started using it and now I have no use for my LunaTik even though I love it and still use it, the only place I can find iPod Nanos at this stage is on Ebay, I’m annoyed that it barely has a two year life span. I plugged it in and said ERROR in 8-bit font, went off and never came back again. I’m not getting the new Nano, no use for it, I still have to stuff it in my pocket to use it so in that case I’m better off using my phone.

Remembering Steve Jobs

Would you believe that it has been a year since Steve Jobs passed away, I honestly never thought about it. He was the heart and soul of Apple, and even if I didn’t like everything he did I respected him and I admire his passion towards his products. Apple only became what it is because of him and I hope that it continues down this path.

On that note it made me think of my next Apple Purchases, and that is already in my head:

  • iPod Touch 64 GB
  • iPod Nano 16 GB
  • iPad Mini (When It Comes Out)

I haven’t gotten any of them yet, but I really do want the iPod Touch, for once they really upgraded it to what it’s supposed to be.

Steve Jobs by Walter Issacsson

stevejobsbiography

To be honest I do believe that Steve Job’s was one of my favorite CEO’s he did a lot for animation industry and the challenged the computer industry and every other media and technology industry out there. He certainly left his dent in the universe people are still trying to wrap their heads around his loss. At least you get to hear the story of the man himself, I’m not much for Biographies but this one I am going to read giving you an inside look inside Steve Job’s life. Written by hand-picked biographer Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs by Walter Issacsson tells the tale of Steve’s professional and personal life, informed by unprecedented access to Jobs, his family, friends, and co-workers, including details of his final days at Apple, and reflections from Jobs as he faced what he called “Life’s greatest invention.” Rest in peace, o turtlenecked one. You will be missed.
