All the Best Leaks from the Steve Jobs Biography #teechy

21 Oct

And theres such an immense amount of intimate strangeness that hasnt been revealed yet—not until Walter Isaacsons book comes out on the 24th. But from the above, you can already see the portrait of a man devoid of keynote charm. An autocrat behind closed doors, stubborn enough to defy both the president and cancer itself. He wanted to destroy Google. He at times eschewed modern medicine. He forced a promise from Yo-Yo Ma to play at his funeral, years in advance. He took his inspiration for the Mac from a Cuisinart, the AP says. He named his entire company after a day trip hed taken to an Apple orchard.

Steve Jobs Refused a Potentially Life-Saving Surgery for 9 months #teechy

21 Oct

Walter Isaacson, the author of the upcoming official Steve Jobs biography, told 60 minutes that Steve Jobs refused what could have potentially been a life-saving surgery. Remember, though Jobs had pancreatic cancer, he also had a very rare form that was treatable through surgery. Jobs didn’t want that surgery.

 

Isaacson, who had numerous conversations with Jobs, says:

“I think that he kind of felt that if you ignore something, if you don’t want something to exist, you can have magical thinking…we talked about this a lot. He wanted to talk about it, how he regretted it….I think he felt he should have been operated on sooner.”
