  1. Steve Jobs Flick Owes Much to Jobs’ Daughter, Says Aaron Sorkin

    *West Wing theme plays*

    Aaron Sorkin is at pains to stress that his untitled Steve Jobs biopic is not. A biopic, that is. That may be why he's giving a dollop of credit to Jobs' daughter Lisa.

  5. Evernote Teases “New and Magical” Hardware Devices, But Gives No Details

    Evernote is a very popular cross-platform note-taking app, though personally I prefer Google Keep. It seems, though, that they're not quite content being an app on someone else's device. Evernote CEO Phil Libin says they plan to build "new and magical" Evernote devices. We love new devices here at Geekosystem, but I think the bigger story is that Evernote has discovered magic.

  6. Funny or Die Beat Everyone to the Steve Jobs Biopic Punch

    Sometimes it's better to be first than to be the best, and while that's far from the philosophy displayed by Apple during Steve Jobs' life, it seems to be the one comedy site Funny or Die took when churning out their Jobs biopic iSteve. It's available online right now, ahead of its competitors jOBS and Steve Jobs.

  7. Today in Geek History: Steve Jobs Was Born, So Here Is Every “One More Thing…” Moment

    Today would have been Steve Jobs' 58th birthday. There's no doubt that he had a huge impact on the geek world, and he's already missed. We can't help but wonder what else Jobs and Apple could have brought into the world if he hadn't lost his battle with cancer at a relatively young age. Jobs always managed to make Apple announcements exciting in a way they really haven't been since his death, and he managed to do it with just three simple words, "One more thing." Here's every "One more thing" moment from 1999 to 2011.

    Not quite sure e-readers are for you? They are a significant expense after all, and not everyone is ready to leave those delicious smelling pages behind. But you're in luck if you live near Bexar County in Texas. They're about to open the nation's first bookless public library system.

  9. Rumor: Apple Could Have a Cheaper iPhone in the Works

    The Apple iPhones, since its launch, have been at the high end of the smartphone price range. Anyone hoping for a break in price has been relegated to buying previous versions, but there's a rumor going around that says that won't be the case for much longer. Apple may be releasing a cheaper version of the iPhone concurrently with the flagship model, similar to how they recently launched the iPad mini as a more affordable alternative to the full-sized version. This is just a rumor, and considering it's CES week, we'll probably be seeing a lot more of those.

  10. Michael Keaton Talks Batman, Beetlejuice, and the New Robocop on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast

    WTF with Marc Maron is one of the most popular, and best, podcasts on the Internet. It's on the radar of most comedy geeks, but Maron interviews people from a few different worlds, including the world of Hollywood. The latest episode features an interview with Michael Keaton, who many forget started as a comic, and the two talked about Batman, Beetlejuice, and Keaton's role in the upcoming Robocop reboot.

  12. More Than a Year After His Death, Steve Jobs’ Super-Yacht is Finally Complete

    It's been over a year since Steve Jobs passed away, but Apple's creative juggernaut is still making awesome stuff. Jobs' private yacht, which he designed but never had the chance to see finished, has been spotted in the wild at a shipyard in  Aalsmeer, Holland. Constructed by Dutch shipbuilder Feadship, the Jobs family had the yacht the completed even after Job's death, with the help of French designer Phillipe Starck. Dubbed "Venus," after the Roman god of Beauty, Jobs' massive ship's sleek design is definitely reminiscent of the man's personal aesthetic.

  13. Apple’s Touching Tribute to Steve Jobs on the One Year Anniversary of His Death

    One year ago today, Apple visionary and somewhat ruthless businessman Steve Jobs passed away. If you happened to visit the Apple homepage today, you'll notice that instead of a huge graphic of the new iPhone 5, a tasteful video tribute to the Apple founder graces the screen. How do you think Apple's first year without Jobs has gone?

  14. Some of the Stuff Apple Fanatics Say is Unbelievable… [Video]

    I'm going to say up front: I'm a bit of an Apple fanboy. I've never owned a non-Apple computer or smartphone. While I am a fan of Apple's products, I totally understand people are who get angry about their holier-than-thou fan club. The cult of Jobs is real people having a conversation with one of company's supporter can sometimes feel like a debate with a brick wall... or a Scientologist.

  15. Aaron Sorkin Will Write the Steve Jobs Biopic, So Don’t Worry, It’ll Be Great

    Vital Information for Your Everyday Life

    There was a rumor that this was going to happen, and now it is confirmed: screenwriter extraordinaire Aaron Sorkin will be the one adapting Walter Isaacson's biography of late Apple CEO Steve Jobs for the big screen. Sorkin, most famous for his work on The West Wing, has already won an Oscar for his last script about a tech giant (The Social Network), so this will be familiar territory for him. Not that Sorkin couldn't handle unfamiliar territory ... oh, wait, just remembered Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Never mind. We'll take familiar territory.

  16. Aaron Sorkin to Write Sony’s Steve Jobs Movie

    We knew Ashton Kutcher will be playing Steve Jobs in an indie biopic, and we also knew Sony was planning a rival Steve Jobs movie. It turns out Sony has brought in the big gun to pen their rival flick, as Aaron Sorkin is now set to pen the screenplay. It's obvious we're big fans of Sorkin here at Geekosystem, slipping in mentions of Sports NightStudio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and his upcoming HBO show The Newsroom whenever we can (just like that, actually!), so we're thrilled that he'll be handling the movie adaptation of the life of Steve Jobs. After all, he did a pretty solid job handling another famous tech figurehead, Mark Zuckerberg, in his Facebook movie, The Social Network. You may have seen that.

  17. This Ghostbusters Spoof by Apple Is Found Next to the Dictionary Definition of 1984 [Video]

    It's Technical

    A lot of people say that the late Steve Jobs was ahead of his time. I will not dispute that, but I will say that this four-minute video of Apple goofing on IBM to the tune of the Ghostbusters theme song that was made in 1984 pretty much reeks of 1984. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Nope, not at all. It wasn't a commercial, it was made for a worldwide sales staff meeting for Apple employees and features both Jobs and Steve Wozniak in cameo roles. Not visible in this video: the neon legwarmers.

  18. Ashton Kutcher to Play Steve Jobs in Indie Biopic, Probably Not an April Fools’ Joke

    Variety reports that Ashton Kutcher, of That '70s Show and replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men fame, has been cast as Steve Jobs in an indie biopic about the Apple mastermind. The news released yesterday on April Fools' Day, so instead of haphazardly reporting it, we waited to see if, you know, April Fools. The news seems to be legitimate, however, and though you may not be thrilled to learn that Kelso is playing Steve Jobs, look at the comparison above. Seems pretty spot on to me.

  19. Will the World Accept Ashton Kutcher Playing Steve Jobs in an Indie Biopic?

    Questions! Questions That Need Answering

    Yesterday, in news that was promised to be true and not an April Fool's prank, it was announced that Ashton Kutcher -- of Ashton Kutcher fame -- will be playing the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs in an indie biopic. Okay, so, going by only the side-by-side pictures alone (pic from Mashable, who were brainy enough to choose pictures from both men's bearded phases), it's not that insane of an idea. But then when you recall that Ashton Kutcher is not known for his acting, let alone playing, um, geniuses, this throws things into a different perspective. Let's talk about this, shall we?

  20. Own a 1984 Steve Jobs Lithograph by Norman Seeff

    Photographer Norman Seeff recounts the session wherein he took some now-famous photographs of Steve Jobs, calling the evocative shot an "electromagnetic rendition of what was going on," citing Steve Jobs having a "slight Mona Lisa quality to that knowing smile" because he is envisioning "how what he has on his lap is going to impact the future." You can now own a lithograph of the iconic image of Steve Jobs having what Seeff feels was a Mona Lisa moment, available for purchase almost 30 years after it was taken.
