Steve Jobs in a Breaking Bad Parody





MondoMedia has released another Steve Jobs video. This time it’s a Breaking Bad parody of the Apple founder and if you don’t like or don’t get black humor, you’d better not watch this short clip.

Here’s what the description on YouTube says:

A terminal cancer diagnosis sends Steve Jobs into beastmode, and into the lab with Jony Ive to cook up the most addictive substance known to man.

Well, the results of Steve’s madness you can see on a video below.

The story's written by two authors - Andy Ochiltree and Aaron Simpson. The latter one is also a director of the video, which is, by the way, is said to be available on iTunes a bit later this August.

How Steve Jobs introduced WiFi [video]



This is an old video featuring Steve Jobs introducing Wi-Fi for the first time to the masses. It was the first mainstream computer with wireless networking.

The video was filmed on a Keynote conference in 1999, where Steve Jobs introduced the iBook G3. It was the first computer that carried an inserted Wi-Fi card. It was the first time Wi-Fi was introduced to the masses. To prove that the technology was really wireless,  Steve Jobs used a Hula Hoop to put the laptop through it.

On this historic conference Jobs said that  'everyone' would jump on the 802.11 bandwagon in the next few months/years. "We're just going to be there first, and the best," Jobs said.

The video shows Jobs surfing the net from an iBook that was just woken from sleep. Nobody in the audience was aware that Jobs was using a wireless technology,  so when he stood up, picked up the laptop and walked around the stage, opening webpages wirelessly, the crowd roared with applauses.  Then he put the laptop through a hula hoop to show that the Internet collection was indeed wireless.

Disney honors Steve Jobs



Steve Jobs is getting the 2013 Disney Legends Award. It will take place on D13 Expo, a memorable three-day-long event. This Disney tradition goes back the year 1987, when Walt Disney Company established this Award.

Steve Jobs changed the world of consumer electronics as the founder of Apple, and was known throughout the world for his visionary attitude and penchant for innovation. He was an early investor and chief executive of Pixar, and became the Walt Disney Company’s largest shareholder overnight when it acquired Pixar Animation Studios in 2006. That same year, he joined the Disney board of directors, and remained a valuable sounding board and advisor to the company until his passing in 2011.

According to Bob Iger, Disney Chair and CEO, the Disney Legend Award is the highest honor for those, who “push the limits of innovation and creativity.”

The Ashton Kutcher led JOBS biopic will debut on August 17th according to a press release.

JOBS details the major moments and defining characters that influenced Steve Jobs on a daily basis from 1971 through 2001.

JOBS stars Ashton Kutcher, Dermot Mulroney, Josh Gad, Lukas Haas, J.K. Simmons and Matthew Modine.
