Steve Jobs---the book
just finished reading this book on my Kindle Fire.. I'm not generally one for biographies, but I must say, this was a really good book. Having just recently been indoctrinated into the iPhone family, my only previous Apple products have been a couple of iPods.
I have to admit, I didn't really know much about Steve Jobs before I read this book, as i'm sure many of us will admit, except that he was "Apple." It's interesting for me while reading the book to pick up my iPod Mini, the iPod Nano or my iPod shuffle and think of how many time Steve had held these, contemplated their design, etc to make them what they are and what I was holding. Same for my new iPhone 4S (although I'm not sure how much he was involved with the design of it).
It sure gave me a different perspective of the man and a new appreciation for all things APPLE....

He was heavily involved in the iPhone 4S design as well as the next update according to Apple. But I know for sure he talked about the 4S in the book which I also read (Siri). He was an amazing man although I'm sure I couldn't have worked for him I hate being micromanaged.

I am about 2/3's of the way through the book! It's an excellently written biography. I too don't usually like biographies but this one is engaging! I also am enjoying the history of Apple that I am learning along the way. Less than half way through I said: "That's it I need a Mac computer" I am now glad to report I am typing this message from my new MacBook Pro.
Apple truly is an awesome company and I hope it continues to be, without Steve Jobs at the reigns!!

I did dwld the free iphone4s book and have been breezing through it just to see if there's additional tips I haven't learned about yet. Once through with that I'll move onto one of the above I mentioned
