Haunted Empire review: It's the book about Apple after Steve Jobs that's the real horror story

There is a case to be made that Apple is doomed without Steve Jobs. Kane just fails to make it. Worse, she doesn't even try. Skip it. I was tempted to make that my entire review. But it would be a disservice to anyone considering buying Yukari Iwatani Kane's new book, Haunted Empire: Apple...

An email from Steve Jobs to the 2010 incarnation of the Apple 100 gathering — their annual, confidential strategy meeting — outlines pretty much what you'd expect to see as discussion points for a next-generation Apple TV. Apps are front and center, as is a version of the Safari web browser, and...

Old Steve Jobs email brainstorms logical next-steps for Apple TV including apps, 'magic wand' controller

An email from Steve Jobs to the 2010 incarnation of the Apple 100 gathering — their annual, confidential strategy meeting — outlines pretty much what you'd expect to see as discussion points for a next-generation Apple TV. Apps are front and center, as is a version of the Safari web browser, and a 'magic wand' that likely refers to a gesture based remote control (think Wii-mote). Four years later it's probably safe to assume those plans, if they were ever serious, have been refined and changed and turned upside down and back again at least a few times.

Haunted Empire review: It's the book about Apple after Steve Jobs that's the real horror story

Skip it.

I was tempted to make that my entire review. But it would be a disservice to anyone considering buying Yukari Iwatani Kane's new book, Haunted Empire: Apple After Steve Jobs. You might find some of the anecdotes about Steve Jobs and Apple collected between the book's covers interesting but this is not the type of work anyone should reward with money.

According to a document obtained by The Washington Post, Steve Jobs will be in the USPS Class of 2015 alongside the likes of (here are some iTunes links…) Jimi Hendrix, Harvey Milk, Johnny Carson, Elvis Presley (a reissue of the popular 1993 stamp), and others.

Understanding Apple: When reporting doesn't seem to lead to insight

UPDATE: The quoted material is from an article in the New Yorker, not an excerpt of the forthcoming book, Haunted Empire: Apple after Steve Jobs. I've updated it to reflect that. I regret the error, apologize for it, and won't judge the book based on the contents of the article.

I've often wondered if reporting on Apple — getting sourced information and writing it up — automatically led to understanding Apple as part of the process. This following article from the New Yorker leads me to believe that's not necessarily the case. And that makes me sad. From The New Yorker:

10 years ago today Apple shipped iTunes for Windows, and hell froze over

10 years ago today iTunes shipped for Windows. Slightly more than 10 years ago, an argument rippled through the ranks of Apple over whether or not to do just that - to make their new music platform accessible to their rival's all-but-eclipsing computing platform, or to keep Apple's iPod unique to Apple's Mac. Chris Fralic excerpting from Max Chafkin's Design Crazy:

Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, co-founder and CEO of Apple, CEO of Pixar, driving force behind the popularization of the Mac, of iTunes and iPods, of Apple Retail, of the iPhone and iPad, and of Apple itself, passed away two years ago today.

A temperamental, triumphant, fallible, transcendent technologist and artist, his taste, sensibility, and the sheer breadth and audacity of his vision more than dented our universe - it shaped our culture and our lives, and helped empower us to dent universes all our own.

You shook the world, Steve, and it was shaken at your passing. But technology goes on. Art goes on. Apple goes on. We're lessened without you, but what you left behind has enabled us to achieve so much more.

Thank you.
