'Steve Jobs' bio moves up release date, sees pre-orders rise


An authorized biography of Steve Jobs was high on best-seller lists within hours of Apple’s announcement of his death. And publisher Simon & Schuster announced Thursday that the release date has been moved up from Nov. 21 to Oct. 24.

As of early Thursday morning, Walter Isaacson’s Steve Jobs was No. 1 on Amazon.com and No. 3 on Barnes & Noble.com. Fittingly, the book also tops Apple’s own list: the iTunes books best-seller list.

Isaacson’s book includes extensive interviews with the Apple co-founder, who rarely discussed his private life. Isaacson has written best-selling biographies of Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin.

Jobs died Wednesday at age 56 after a long battle with cancer.

      Noah Wyle played him years ago. I don’t see why he couldn’t be tapped again to play a more complete tale of Jobs’ life.

      I just want to say again how disturbing that iTime time eavrtl story was. Though I must admit to some surprise that the President of the United States would be allowed to use one – I would think that with that level of technology, there would be a half dozen government agents with them who would take turns advising the President on events so to minimize aging issues (though he was secondary to this – I almost wonder if the “President greying” nod was suggesting the President already has access to this technology and this explains why they go grey so fast).I find it horrifying for two reasons: first, that it would so easily be abused with no safeguards on it to prevent multiple loops to relive the same four hours over and over again, and second, that the primary character saw her roommate grow old and die… and yet willingly decide to follow in her footsteps.(Imagine what it might do to a pregnant woman! She could end up giving birth within a few days rather than the months normally meant for this… and then the child would lose their mother as the mother continued to abuse the iTime.)No. To me, this is a horror story. And if they ever came out with an iTime story… I would refuse to take one, even if offered one for free. Because the temptation to abuse it would be far too great.Rob H.
