Sony has another movie coming about Steve Jobs that is based on the autobiography. Hulme says that Ashton Kutcher was interested in the project after reading the script and that the producers thought he was a good fit for the role because he and Jobs looked similar when Jobs was younger. The film will cover 1977 through 2000.

“Elizabeth is still the Queen of England,” one user suggested. “It’s not socially acceptable to drink whiskey and smoke cigarettes at work,” wrote another.

1986's geekwear would fit into any Brooklyn bar today.It's easy to forget that Steve Jobs had a few bad ideas.

He was booed off the stage by his own staff.Read ... Source: Fact or Design

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
