Steve Jobs' Biography Due Out November 21st, 2011

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple News" @ 01:23 PM

"Apple CEO Steve Jobs' official biography by Walter Isaacson has just had its release date bumped to November 21st, 2011 from the original date of March 6th, 2012. It also has a new cover and a new title!"

This could be a very interesting read, comprised of over 40 interviews where he talks candidly about a variety of topics including friends, family, coworkers and pretty much anyone he had contact with, telling the biographer that nothing was off limits. What are your thoughts, think this is something that you will buy?

"The Apple sphere's favorite Apple evangelist, Guy Kawaskai, is offering his book The Macintosh Way for free. All you have to do is head over to the Facebook fan page of his upcoming book, Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds and Actions, "Like" it, and then download the PDF."

Back in August 2010 he was doing the same thing, but now he is switching to Facebook and tying it to his new book to get the word out. So if you missed out on your free copy in August, you have another shot. And while you are at it you can find out about his new book.

"Now that the fridge is packed with Thanksgiving leftovers and the radio is broadcasting hourly traffic reports for mall parking lots, it's time to start thinking about the pending holiday season and the big H.C. That's right: Holiday Cards."

iPhoto is a great way to create cards, books or calendars, and this article has some great tips on how to turn out a crowd pleasing product. I've made a few books using iPhoto and they really have made the process simple, this is some fine tuning that could come in handy.

O'Reilly To Release Dead Tree iPhone App Store Guide

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Talk" @ 01:00 PM

"Fortunately, Best iPhone Apps: The Guide for Discriminating Downloaders guides the way, shining the light on over 200 gee-whiz apps that delight, empower, and entertain. Author Josh Clark stress-tested thousands of titles from the App Store emporium to select apps that will make the biggest difference in every aspect of your life: at work, on the town, at play, at home, and on the road. “I wrote this book to help you stay current,” notes Clark."

Okay... I'll say it.

I don't get it.

A book about the App Store? A resource where hundreds upon hundreds of new applications are available to people every day? While I get the general idea, and can appreciate the work involved in reviewing all those apps to choose them for a book, I don't understand why anyone would want a dead tree reference for the App Store. It'll be out of date by the time you get it home!

I don't get it.

Read a Book, No App Required!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (iPhone/iPod Touch)" @ 02:00 PM

"Despite the fact that the App Store is capturing everybody's attention, old-school (as in, about 8 months ago) mobile web apps are still worth checking out, too -- Andy Ihnatko reports that Google has put their Google Book Search web app in iPhone form, and the result is awesome: 1.5 million public-domain texts in a well-coded and clean reader all for completely free."

If I was in a bind and wanted to read something from the public domain, this would be just the ticket. No subscription or app required and it works pretty well. It doesn't compete with my Kindle, but if all I had was my iPhone or iPod Touch and wanted to get in a quick read, I'd head on over to http://books.google.com/m and do some browsing.
