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.

Christian Bale, the man who brought Batman to live for Christopher Nolan and Patrick Bateman for American Psycho is now rumored to be director by David Fincher (Fight Club, The Social Network)'s top choice to play Steve Jobs in the Sony biopic being written by Aaron Sorkin (The West Wing, The Social Network).

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.

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:

Steve Jobs wanted you to have a Sony VAIO running OS X

OS X has always been a Mac only product – despite the Hackintosh scene – but it now comes to light that at one point in its life that might have changed. With Sony the beneficiary. In a tale of VAIO, Golf and Steve Jobs, Apple's former CEO was apparently keen to expand OS X to Sony's laptop brand. From Nobi:
