Steve Jobs

In the wake of Steve Jobs' death yesterday, publication of a planned biography on the Apple founder has been pushed up, and the book will now come out at the end of the month. The bio, penned by Walter Isaacson and aptly titled Steve Jobs, has already shot to the number-one spot on Amazon for pre-orders (it previously came in at 384th), and is now at the top of the iTunes charts, too.

Isaacson describes Jobs as "still sharp" during their final interview in spite of pain. The technology mogul was apparently eager to arrange an official biography when he learned of his illness, telling Isaacson, "I wanted my kids to know me. I wasn't always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and understand what I did." 

Looks like no one will be forgetting about Jobs' significant legacy anytime soon.
