Release of Authorized Steve Jobs Biography Bumped Up to November 21st





stevejobs

The first authorized biography of Apple CEO Steve Jobs, a book with the simple  title  "Steve Jobs", reportedly set to be released on November 21, 2011.

Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues this book chronicles the rollercoaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing.

As the publisher claims, Jobs has cooperated with the book and has not asked for any control over the final product. The book will probably yield the most open look at Jobs' personal and professional life.

Apple Increasing iPhone Production with iPhone 5 Ramp-Up



apple

Digitimes suggests that Apple has increased the orders for their iPhone line by about 12-13% from 50 million units to 56 million units. The iPhone 5 in particular will reportedly account for 25.5-26 million units in the second half of 2011. In the 3rd garter the iPhone 5 orders have been decreased from  7 million units to 5.5-6 million units, but in the 4th quarter they have been raised from 14 million units to more then 20 million units. But Apple declines the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 orders from over 20 million in the 3rd quarter to 8 million in the 4th quarter. These numbers, however, are not surprisingly, because, if you look at the history sales graph, these times of the year do represent major jumps in sales for Apple.
