According to a report from MercuryNews, suspects are now in custody for the recent burglary of the Silicon Valley home of Steve Jobs that contained more than 60k worth of computers and personal items:
The deceased Apple co-founder’s home on the 2100 block of Waverley Street in Palo Alto was burglarized July 17, said Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Tom Flattery, a member of the high-technology crimes unit…More than $60,000 worth of “computers and personal items” were allegedly stolen, but Flattery declined to say whether they belonged to Jobs, who died last year at the age of 56, or another family member.
The announcement that Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher is to play Steve Jobs in an upcoming biopic film has been met with heavy criticism from some members of the Apple community. However Mark Hulme, the producer of the film, claimed in an interview with The Daily that Kutcher believes the role was ‘meant for him’.
“He is already meeting with folks that knew Steve Jobs. He’s working with professionals to get inside the voice. He’s letting his hair grow out. I understand he’s canceled all meetings and actually canceled all other projects,” producer Mark Hulme, whose newly formed Five Star Feature Films is the sole investor behind “Jobs,” told Flash.
Variety reports that actor Ashton Kutcher will be playing Steve Jobs in an upcoming independent movie called Jobs.
The film will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple, where he became one of the most revered creative entrepreneurs of our time.
Steve Jobs was one of the most influential and successful businessmen of all time, and produced several innovative products that forever rocked the technology industry, hand-crafting a company that would later give birth to one of the most significant technology-related social movements ever.
Fortune Magazine has taken note of Steve Jobs’ legendary career, and has honored Jobs by declaring him the greatest entrepreneur of our time, topping out 11 other wildly successful businessmen, including Microsoft c0-founder Bill Gates.
An awesome website, allaboutstevejobs.com, gives you everything you want want to know, see and read about Steve Jobs, and is probably the best site I have seen about the late Apple founder.
It really is worth a look, as it has, amongst other things, every single major keynote he has ever made. I could spend hours watching them, especially as most of them I’d never seen before, like the keynote for the launch of the NeXT workstation.
Man, I’d hate to (or love to) be the guy who has to step into Steve’s role at Apple. The guy co-founded the company in a garage, made it a success, left then came back, made it a success again, revolutionized the music/entertainment industry, changed mobile computing, and is one of the most iconic speakers of all time. BIG SHOES…
