British PM to Rule Country with Personalized iPad App!

British Prime Minister to Rule Country with Personalized iPad App!
When I read this earlier, the first thought that came to my head was "iPad's really DO rule the world!" The only problem I could see with this is that if his iPad was stolen, hacked, or the app infiltrated, all of Britain's top secret information would be available to get into the wrong hands. Sounds like a risky price to pay for portability, but I could see myself making the same move. Something to think about at least.
Hope you enjoy. Please give me your thoughts and feedback, and tell me how YOU use your iPad or other tablets in everyday life.
Thanks to www.cultofmac.com for this article.

British PM David Cameron is having a personalized iPad app built by programmers inside the Cabinet Office that will provide him with the latest information he needs to run the country.

Steve Job's Quote of the Day

Ok, we all know that one day we will die. Why? I don't know, and I don't think anyone will ever know, but Steve Jobs's summed death up quite nicely I think:

"No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away.
Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
-Steve Jobs (2005 Commencement Address at Stanford)

The Lost Interview

Ok, so everyone knows that since Steve Jobs passed, everybody has been digging up information on him, but one thing has been missing since 1995. In 1995 PBS did an interview in the miniseries Triumph of the Nerds. Only 10 minutes of the 70 minute interview was used. All of the raw footage was lost. The missing footage has been found on a VHS copy of the interview that was stored in the documentary director’s garage. It had been sitting there collecting dust for years


In two weeks, this lost interview will be shown in movie theaters in only 19 cities for a limited time only. Below is a link to more info on Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview.
The Lost Interview (More info.)


Here is a link to the cities and theaters in which it will be shown: 
19 Cities and Theaters


Meanwhile, there has been more "lost" footage dug up with Steve. Below is a link to a 50 minute interview that has been lost and recently been published on YouTube:
Another Lost Interview


Now, for all of you who cry wolf, fear NOT, Sony Pictures is still going to be releasing a Steve Jobs movie based on Walter Issacson's biography, though no release date has been set. Below is a link to more info on the Steve Jobs movie:

No! He's gone?!? Steve Jobs by Walter Issacson

He died, OK, he died. No! He couldn't have died! He was STEVE JOBS!!! How could he die! He was going to live for decades more! But wait, we knew this was coming. He was sick wasn't he? He wasn't CEO anymore. We new this was coming... Unless you have had your head in the sand these past couple weeks, on October 5th at 3:00 PM, innovative genius and inspirational entrepreneur Steven Paul Jobs died. With the death of an idol, people earnestly searched the internet for info on Steve. People wanted to know, Who was Steve Jobs, really? What were his early years like? What eventually killed him?



Walter Issacson, former writer for Time Magazine and CNN, and CEO of the Aspen Institute had been asked by Steve in mid-2009 to write his biography. Issacson had previously written biographies of Albert Einstein and Benjamin Franklin. Steve admired his work. However, Issacson initially said no, because he was just finishing up his biography on Einstein. He told Steve, "Maybe in a decade or two when you retire!" Steve had taken a medical leave of absence in early 2009, but was back to Apple by June. On New Year's Day 2009, Walter Issacson got a call from Steve pleading with him to do the biography. Soon after, Issacson received a call from Laurene, Steve's wife of 21 years, telling him he must do it now! He said yes, knowing Steve's time must be running out. In early 2011, Steve took his final medical leave of absence, and sadly resigned from the CEO position of Apple Inc. in August. He died six weeks to the day.


So, this is how it came to be that on Tuesday, October 25, 2011, after 40 plus interviews with Steve and countless interviews with friends, family, and past colleagues and girlfriends, and a seemingly endless wait for the book's release date, all 571 pages of Issacson's book about my deceased role model lay at my feet.  My reaction when I got it off the porch when I came home was this: "YYYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!"
I greatly mourn the loss of such an amazing man, but am so happy to finally be able to read about his life, past experiences, how he felt, how he lived, and what his beliefs were!
