Remains of the Day: Jobs report
One report says Steve Jobs was intimately involved with the four-inch iPhone, while another says he was working on creating the best car ever. Only one person can set the record straight for a major motion picture event. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the remainders for Friday, May 18, 2012.
The rumors of an iPhone with a larger, 4-inch display continue, with Bloomberg reporting that Steve Jobs worked heavily on the design before his death. I hear it was just one of many plans that the former Apple CEO left behind, including one for unlimited clean energy.
Speaking of the late Steve Jobs, Apple board member and J. Crew CEO Mickey Drexler said at a conference that Jobs’s dream was to create an iCar. Jobs, however, never actually designed it, though that hasn’t stopped Drexler from estimating that the creation would have accounted for “probably 50% of the market.” Of course, if Jobs had really had his way, the other half of the market would have probably been the iCar Mini.
Along with the news that noted scribe Aaron Sorkin will be penning the film adaptation of Steve Jobs’s biography comes an additional detail: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak has been hired as a “tutor” for Sorkin, on both technical aspects as well as on Jobs himself. Just as long as this doesn’t turn into Sorkin’s adaptation of iWoz.
