A New Biography about the life of legendary apple founder late Steve Jobs titled “Steve Jobs” by Walter Isaacson is going to be available on monday October 24, 2011. In this book author Walter Isaacson writes that Steve Jobs gave up on Christianity after he saw a picture of starving children as the cover of life magazine at the age of 13 he even asked his Sunday school pastor whether God knew what would happen to them.
This book also tells us that Steve Jobs got to know that he had a neuroendocrine tumor — a relatively rare type of pancreatic cancer that normally grows more slowly and is therefore more treatable,Back in October 2003. Isaacson, quoting Jobs, writes in the book: “’I really didn’t want them to open up my body, so I tried to see if a few other things would work,’ he told me years later with a hint of regret.” This clearly shows that Jobs wasn’t ready to be operated with the new technology and equipment that the doctors would use on him to cure him of his slowly growing cancer . So,instead of going to the doctors he tried a vegan diet, acupuncture, herbal remedies and other treatments he found online, and even consulted a psychic. He also was influenced by a doctor who ran a clinic that advised juice fasts, bowel cleansings and other unproven approaches, the book says, before finally having surgery in July 2004.
His delaying of treatment cost him his life. Many doctors believed that if he had treated himself in time he would still be alive and healthy. Dr. Michael Pishvaian, a pancreatic cancer expert at Georgetown University’s Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center, said people often are in denial after a cancer diagnosis, and some take a long time to accept recommended treatments. “We’ve had many patients who have had bad outcomes when they have delayed treatment. Nine months is certainly a significant period of time to delay,” he said.
The book also provides insight into the unraveling of Jobs’ relationship with Eric Schmidt, the former CEO of Google and an Apple board member from 2006 to 2009. Schmidt had quit Apple’s board as Google and Apple went head-to-head in smartphones, Apple with its iPhone and Google with its Android software.saacson wrote that Jobs was livid in January 2010 when HTC introduced an Android phone that boasted many of the popular features of the iPhone. Apple sued, and Jobs told Isaacson in an expletive-laced rant that Google’s actions amounted to “grand theft.”
“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.”
Jobs used an expletive to describe Android and Google Docs, Google’s Internet-based word processing program. In a subsequent meeting with Schmidt at a Palo Alto, Calif., cafe, Jobs told Schmidt that he wasn’t interested in settling the lawsuit, the book says.
“I don’t want your money. If you offer me $5 billion, I won’t want it. I’ve got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, that’s all I want.” The meeting, Isaacson wrote, resolved nothing.
“Jobs was clearly not Okay with what google had done. If,Steve Jobs was alive today he would have definitely come up with an anti-android formula in no time. As it was most of his ideas and Apple’s iPhone’s that were taken in Android.” An insider from the industry said.
