    AllThingsD reports that the paperback version of Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of Steve Jobs will be released on September 10, nearly two years after the book's original release. According to publisher Simon & Schuster, the paperback version will include a new afterword as well as a new cover image showing a young Steve Jobs in the same pose seen with an older Jobs on the original cover.

    Typical Apple...release a new version of a product before I've even finished reading the original ;-)

    I disagree. Younger Jobs has laser eyes that cut into the soul. The glasses on Older Jobs distorts that laser just a bit.

    But they're both amazing pictures. I already own the hardcover copy and I don't really want to own the paperback (those are so hard to keep in good condition, and I'd hate to distort His image) - how can I get that afterword without buying the new copy? Is it not like a free software update? Am I not entitled to it?

    We need the government to investigate this, especially the price of Steve's glasses.

    These probably are causing all the selling price discrepancies.

    Don't bother with this overpriced garbage. There are cheaper and better specced books on the market that have more pages and a colour cover.

    ;)

    Yes, I thought I was the only one to notice! The new cover looks noticeably "flatter" that the older one!

    :rolleyes:

    No color options?

    If I buy a copy in paperback - should I get a case?

    Will the Amazon eBook price be the same as the iBooks price?

    Shouldn't this thread also be filed under politics and religion?

    Guys, I need to make a decision NOW! Should I order this paperback edition, or should I wait for the next edition with retina printing??
