Books -- remember them? Papery things, only held one story at a time, can't browse the Internet. The story of Apple boss Steve Jobs is being told in a new book to be published next year, entitled -- inevitably -- iSteve: The Book of Jobs.
The tome is being penned by a suitably heavyweight scribe, ex-CNN boss Walter Isaacson. There are plenty of unofficial books about Jobs, including one offering tips on how to make a presentation like Steve -- chapter one is all about finding a black polo-neck that fits. iSteve is the first to get official approval from the man himself, and will consist of interviews with the Jobsinator, his family, and people within Apple and competing companies.
For the CEO of a technology company, Jobs is a pretty well-known chap. The Book of Jobs follows the filmPirates of Silicon Valley, about Apple's early conflict with Microsoft and Steve-O's rivalry with Bill Gates.
Jobs' founding partner at Apple, Steve Wozniak, has also written a book, entitled -- equally inevitably -- iWoz.
iSteve will be published by Simon & Schuster in early 2012. We imagine it'll be available on your iPad as an ebook. Will you read Steve's story, or just wait for the film to come out? Tell us your story in the comments or on our Facebook wall.
