That, and in all the videos I've seen of Steve there was never any nudity.

Is this gonna be another way like LOTR Extended version, with "x minutes more footage", just to make more money? We'll start tacking more extra stuff on, we delibratly left out for this poupose.

I've got the origional Steve Jobs bio., just havan't got round to reading it on iPad yet.

Actually, I have a copy of this on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine published on October 27, 2011.

That was oddly the issue I discovered that he was at the same junior high school as I during the same time. This culminated in an year long journey of connections to that period of my life only to find out he grew up across the street from me and that we were childhood friends.

It may seem silly, and I really don't know why, but every time I get caught off guard by him I have the urge to tear up. I guess it'd be easier to not care as much had I lost someone previously but in my 23 years none of my family has passed. I really did like this man. He was so passionate and dedicated... I wish I'd have known him personally. My signature sums it up.

One that really jumped out at me is where he describes OS X as just an evolution of the old Mac OS, and says 'the NeXT OS was never really used'. It's supposedly a quote from Gates, but Isaacson runs with it as if it's true—when probably half of us here on the MacRumors forums could have told him that OS X 10.0 was NeXT OS, with design changes and compatibility with the Classic Mac and PowerPC platform built in. You'd like to think they'd have corrected major mistakes like this two years on from the first edition!

The young Steve didn't pay child support and wanted nothing to do with his daughter.

The older Steve fired Pixar employees without notice or severance pay.

It's all in the book. Steve was an awesome person

The picture for the book cover is pretty bad lightened up and much of the highlights are gone.

Hmm, this would be a nice alternative to reading my hardcover copy. That would involve getting palmprints on my autographed copy.

Or I could finally just read the copy I have on my Kindle.

Hand should be darkened more even if, like many people in sunny California, it is lighter than his face.
