A bizarre allegation has been flying around the Internet for months, and now it's picking up steam: "Apple's Mountain Lion image is based on the [Steve] Jobs' biography cover picture, as an homage to Apple's former leader."
Gizmodo puts it best: The current rumor now ramping through the internet is so dumb, so painfully stupid that Steve Jobs must be rolling in his grave.
In something that is both dated, awkward, and just unintentionally hilarious, this Apple-produced video, "Blue Busters," takes shots at IBM using Ray Parker Jr's "Ghostbusters" as its reference point. Even better are the cameos by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, which puts them in the unique position of being innovators of dis videos.
Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview is a new documentary whose footage was recorded in 1995, thought long-gone, and recently unearthed on a forgotten VHS tape in a garage. The footage has been spruced up and "placed in context," and will get a limited theatrical release May 11 ahead before the DVD version becomes available this summer.
The interview was recorded at a curious time in Jobs' career, 10 years after he'd left Apple and about a year before he would be back at the helm. Over the course of the hour-long interview, Jobs speaks candidly about the early days of his career, his forced departure from Apple, and his vision for the future of tech.
Ashton Kutcher will play the late Steve Jobs in indie flick Jobs, which begins shooting in May. Known for his light-hearted turn on Two and a Half Men and a handful of so-so flicks (New Year's Eve, No Strings Attached), this could be the opportunity of his career. Or not.
