Business titans of our time, brilliant musicians that changed the world forever, and a curious toddler with a talking backpack and wide, creepily blinking eyes. What do Steve Jobs, John Lennon and Dora the Explorer have in common? They’re all going to end up on U.S. postage stamps. [More]
Since we don’t really know what happens to us when we pass on, a Taiwanese commercial is taking advantage of the unknown and picturing heaven as a place where Steve Jobs can finally play with Android phones to his heart’s content.

As much as you might be yearning to snuggle up at night with an action figure version of Steve Jobs that is creepily akin to the real person, Apple doesn’t want Jobs fans to get their hands on any such dolls.

The case of Steve Jobs’ iconic mock black turtlenecks keeps getting curiouser and curiouser.

As if you didn’t know, it takes a lot of hard work and ingenuity to design products the whole world has fits of joy over. Also, you better own those ideas if you’re going to sell them!

Gadget from selling the dolls, a few were smuggled out and made it onto eBay, where they were going for $2,500. But Apple has blocked further sales, citing a California law that requires merchants to get an individual’s permission before selling products based on their likeness.
Looks like Apple’s Tim Cook meant it when he told shareholders that most programs submitted to the company’s App Store are approved within a week. Just seven days after CEO Steve Jobs promised to put together a program to allow iPhone 4 customers to get a free case, the iPhone 4 Case Program app is now available for download.

When Steve Jobs says Apple, Inc. is going to “work our butts off” to solve the antenna problems on the iPhone 4, what he really means is… engineer slumber party!
