Apple's Steve Jobs graces Time magazine cover for iPad launch

Quote:
The latest issue of Time magazine features an interview with Steve Jobs by British actor Stephen Fry, in which the Apple co-founder discusses the iPad, his career and his life.
In my opinion Stephen Fry is just as much of a legend as Steve Jobs is. Different fields of cause. So this interview should be a good read.

And here is the article online for you to read written by Stephen Fry.

The iPad Launch: Can Steve Jobs Do It Again? - TIME

Stephen Fry is such an Apple fanboy. He even admits it in the article. And he does get to met up with Jobs, Schiller and Cue to talk to them about the ipad and how it came about. All in the article. Stephen also claims he's the 2nd person in the UK to have bought and owned a macintosh in 1984 (I dunno if this is true or just fanboyism). Douglas Adams being the first. And they were good mates till he died. He also says "Douglas Adams is not alive to see the closest thing to his Hitchhiker's Guide that humankind has yet devised."

A very very good article. A must read. (Page 1-3 of the article is nice talk about the ipad and other things and page 4 is Stephen meet Steve).

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Google and Microsoft's flattery of Apple over the past two years has been nothing short of hero worship. Few doubt the iPad will be aped as well.

Just a few excellent quites from the article I want to share.

Bout time you came up with a decent read mate But honestly was a nice article by Fry and just like you i think him a legend in his own right.

And i loved this particular entry God like describing Job's

For some, his personal magnetism is almost of a dangerous, Elmer Gantry kind. They call the charisma emanating from his keynote addresses "Steve's reality-distortion field."

Great read, thanks for the heads up.

I read an article on a UK today about how the iPad will be used by different people - not a bad read.

The Apple iPad Finally Arrives, But How Will It Be Used?
