I really do hope this panel gets done every year. I did it with Ali Mooney, Matt Galligan, Rob Rassmussen and Ben Malbon last year. Except ours was titled in the form of a question. Now it’s a statement. PROGRESS. By 2020, maybe they’ll actually do it.

Walter Isaacson: Steve Jobs
I suppose this could be considered to contain spoilers, so if you want an un-spoiled reading of the book, it’s probably best to skip this until you’ve finished it. Some thoughts: Boy, he sure does cry a lot. And he has an eating disorder, basically. It seems to me that in many ways Steve might have been manic depressive or bipolar. The eating weirdly stuff. The moods. The...

The Nexus One was released on January 5, 2010 — not even two years ago. Apple often gets dinged for cutting support to older hardware, forcing users to upgrade if they want the latest and greatest software. So I feel it’s necessary to point out that the iPhone 3GS...

parislemon: That’s what Steve Jobs revealed to Walter Isaacson in an interview for his forthcoming biography. What was he talking about? The often rumored (and just as often dismissed) Apple television. Not the Apple TV, the current product, a full fledged television. Six months ago, I laid out why I thought an Apple television was actually coming despite (and perhaps because of) the current...

The fascinating thing about being unemployed but still trying to be productive is that everything carries this sort of equal weight of fun and productivity and pointlessness yet holding within it some larger point, not yet apparent.
