The first official photo is out of Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs in the biopic, jOBS. Some are worried about Kutcher’s acting ability, however I think he’ll be able to pull it off. It’s definitely a different character than what he’s used to playing, but we’ll know the truth of it once jOBS hits the Sundance Film Festival.
After the jump there’s the picture of Steve Jobs they were trying to recreate, and they did a damn fine job of it too.
I know I’m probably going to be in the minority here but truth be told I’m feeling pretty underwhelmed by the iPhone 5. Even amidst all the glowing reports of Apple’s stock surpassing $700 and a record 2 million phones in the first 24 hours I’m just not feeling the buzz or the love. I’ve owned a 3G, 3GS, 4, and 4S over the last few years and I’m a big fan generally. As the ship date of the iPhone 5 approaches I feel very much like I did when the 4S fell short of many’s expectations.
Steve Job’s narrates the 1997 commercial ”Here’s to the Crazy Ones” that never aired. It’s a great ad by itself, but it’s also a fitting obituary from the man himself. I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple decided to air it now, in fact I think it would be most appropriate.
Hundreds are gathering to pay their respects for Steve Jobs outside the Apple store in Union Square in San Francisco. He was living proof of what strong, visionary leadership can do for any business, service, or organization.
This was one of the first images I saw earlier today regarding the passing of visionary leader Steve Jobs…
This article and accompanying video is as sweet and genuine as it is authentic and sincere. The business and technology world has truly lost one of its founding fathers.
Appreciation: Jobs was larger than life
UN f****** BELIEVABLE:
The Westboro Baptist Church took to an iPhone when they heard aboutSteve Jobs’ death Wednesday night, sending out a message saying the Apple founder would be going to hell and calling for a protest of his funeral.
“Westboro will picket his funeral. He had a huge platform; gave God no glory and taught sin,” wrote Margie Phelps, daughter of the church’s founder.

The iPhone-wielding Westboro members seemed unable to find any irony in their embrace of the technology of a man they condemn. One church member even suggested that God was using Jobs to help advance the message of Westboro Baptist Church: “God used Steve Jobs to create amazing STUFF for WBC to preach,” wrote Shirley Phelps-Roper.
