Steve Jobs was notoriously private, but this Monday Walter Isaacson’s biography of the former Apple CEO is released, and it promises to shed some interesting light on the college dropout slash genius.
In fact, we don’t have to wait that long, thanks to the modern tradition of any and all things being leaked ahead of their scheduled release.
One of the most interesting leaks thus far details an experimental gene therapy that Jobs hoped would beat his cancer. The doctor was so sure of the treatment’s future success that Jobs figured he’d either be among the first “to outrun a cancer like this”, or be one of the last “to die from it”.
Jobs was also said to be eager to destroy Android, “because it’s a stolen product,” even going as far as to say: “I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”
And Steve was reportedly critical of President Obama, suggesting he was “headed for a one-term presidency” due to “regulations and unnecessary costs” when it comes to building factories in the US, and a subsequent inability to compete with Asian companies.
Sounds like a pretty interesting read.
