Steve Jobs biography now available via iBooks, Kindle


I'm having problems with the ebook under iBook, the fonts are screwed up for chapter headers and other places, and all of the actual chapter text is missing!

$16.99 for Kindle version.....sorry. I put a request in with the Boston Public Library to get copies in. Will wait and borrow it for free at some point......but no way I am I paying that much for a Kindle Version

You are so right, after purchasing so many books I read only once, I am now going the rent fromthe library route!

same issue. cannot read the text. Of all books to have problems with. please post a solution if you find one. Anxious to read the book

i found this website kinda like netflix, but more advanced for ipads you can literally download anything you want on there. check it out ill stop back in here ina couple days to see what you think of it

I think price will still be a great factor .If Window8 tbaelt is more than US$200 more expensive than iPad, it may not be as competitive.But for notebook PC . Anyway we have to use Windows, and Microsoft will definitely give up supporting Windows7 someday.. 1 3

Similar problem. Ordered on my IMAC. Can't get it on my IPAD. Actually never downloaded to IMAC either. Apple refunded my money. I think I'll order it on my IPAD. Looks like it's best to order it on the device you plan to read it on. Seems you need to download the ibook app, set download to always on. I am thinking about buying a $ 79 Kindle. Those owners don't seem to have any trouble.

I downloaded his bio to my iPad2 and iPhone 4s, but no images are showing up on either. Any hints on what's happening or how to correct this?

handy tip i discovered re: cctoatns duplication once icloud is checked is to click on the red bookmark label on the address book. it should turn the page, then select to only show icloud cctoatns. then you dont need to delete the mac cctoatns.

You really make it apaepr really easy with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be really one thing that I think I might never understand. It seems too complex and extremely vast for me. I'm taking a look forward to your subsequent submit, I will try to get the hold of it!
