Remains of the Day: All Steve, all the time
Steve Jobs is central to Apple, there’s no question, but every once in a while it’s Steve Steve Steve Steve. Even if it’s an interview with John Sculley, or a spat with a journalism student, or, heck, those miners in Chile—it all comes back to Steve Jobs. So prepare yourself for the remainders for Thursday, October 14, which sport a decidedly Jobsian bent.
Cult of Mac has a lengthy interview with John Sculley, the former Apple CEO and the man who ousted Steve Jobs in 1985. Pretty much the whole interview is about Jobs, which left Sculley disappointed that he was unable to pimp his new solo album, Selling Sugar Water.
Chelsea Kate Isaacs, the journalism student who infamously sparred with Steve Jobs, was chosen to be one of eight student journalists covering Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 launch earlier this week. “It’s been a really great challenge and exercise for me to just stay totally in the middle and not be totally biased toward Microsoft because I hate Apple, but I don’t hate Apple,” she told CNet. Nice…save?
According to Yahoo, Steve Jobs sent each of the rescued Chilean miners a brand new iPod. And that’s not all—he even signed them up for Ping!
To celebrate the release of its new iPhone app, Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway held a press event with a Steve Jobs impersonator (local celebrity Lar Kar Ying). Please, please, please, Apple: bring this guy up on stage next Wednesday to duke it out with Noah Wyle.
