Walter Isaacson: In the end, Bill makes the Zune and Steve makes the iPod [Video]

by Justin Horn on Oct 26th, 2011 @ 12:05 am

Yes, the Zune is still the butt of jokes. I first noticed this trend way back in October of 2008, when NBC’s TV show Chuck joked about owning a Zune.

Now 3 years later Walter Isaacson, the author who wrote Steve Jobs biography, joins in on the fun. Isaacson, appearing on The Daily Show with John Stewart, highlights Steve Jobs’ more artistic and mystical style compared to Bill Gates’ brains and business sense.

Steve Jobs health takes a turn for the worse?

by Justin Horn on Feb 16th, 2011 @ 6:12 pm


Has confirmed Jobs, 55, has been attending the Stanford Cancer Center in Palo Alto, California, where Swayze sought radical chemotherapy for pancreatic cancer before his death in September, 2009.

The skeletal-looking Apple boss was photographed outside the clinic in images set to be published in the next edition of The National Enquirer.

NY Magazine adds:

But the National Enquirer, who broke the news, talked to critical-care physician Dr. Samuel Jacobson, who said, “Judging from the photos, he is close to terminal. I would say he has six weeks.” We sincerely hope he’s wrong and wish Jobs all the best.

Steve Jobs did go on medical leave again in January, so that does lend some truth to these reports. If true, hopefully he can pull through this next round and Dr. Samuel Jacobson is incorrect in his assessment.
