The Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson has been with us for some time, but the publishers have now announced that it will be appearing in paperback form. Finally. To accompany the release of the book as a paperback, there will be a new cover photograph of a much younger Steve Jobs, along with a new afterword.
Aaron Sorkin, the screenwriter for the film adaptation of Walter Isaacson's official Steve Jobs biography, was another high-profile guest being interviewed at the D10 conference this week. He spoke in fairly general terms about the project, since it was still very early stage.
Sony has hired Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak to advise on its upcoming film based on the book Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacsson. Woz will be there to consult on Jobs and on technical aspects of computers. Sony has already hired Aaron Sorkin to write the film and he was also responsible for the recent film based on Facebook, The Social Network as well as television's The West Wing. Unfortunately this project does not seem that straight forward for Sorkin.
Samsung and Apple have made some pretty interesting evidence requests in recent joint court filings. Apple is specifically asking that Walter Isaacson's official biography of Steve Jobs isn't admitted as any kind of evidence, likely considering it illustrates Jobs' unbridled ire for Android, and that it would color Apple's complaints as founded on emotion rather than technology
At an event in San Francisco hosted by the Commonwealth Club of California, Isaacson shared a number of gems about the two years he spent with Jobs writing the book and talked about the possibility of expanding the title in the future. Fortune senior editor at large Adam Lashinsky moderated the talk.
