Starting things off on a bit of a somber note, the Chinese child you may have heard about who was run over and did not receive any help from bystanders died a week after intensive care treatments proved ineffective. The Huffington Post posted a video from Newsy which claims many people in China are afraid of being blamed for transgressions after only trying to help. It’s a shame, really, and is hopefully something that gets better sooner rather than later.
If you’ve been wondering what Eminem’s been up to since he’s been clean, Rolling Stone posted an interview discussing his new album, his past experience with drugs and what it’s like to get into his recording studio, amongst other things. Fun fact – his current home in Detroit was owned by the former CEO of K-Mart.
Or if you’re more into politics, movie critic Roger Ebert and comedian Victoria Jackson have taken an interest in Occupy Wall Street. In his Chicago Sun-Times blog, Ebert compares the stances of the Tea Party and the OWS protestors but takes no clear side with either. In any case, it’s cool to see the movement picking up steam. SNL comedian Victoria Jackson actually interviews some of the protestors. Whether or not you actually agree with her position is an entirely different story.
A new biography titled “Steve Jobs” written by Walter Isaacson is set to be published Oct. 24 and the Associated Press reports that the book covers such topics as Jobs’ religious outlook, a string of diets Jobs undertook in order to avoid surgery and his outrage at Google’s supposed poaching of Apple’s ideas. AP reports that after Schmidt, former Google CEO, left Apple as a board member, Jobs noticed that many features present in the iPhone were being reproduced on Google’s android powered Nexus One. Jobs wasn’t happy to say the least.
"I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong," Jobs said. "I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this."
Whether you’re interested in the way Jobs “came up” or would like to get a closer glimpse at his life, the biography is bound to be interesting.
