Friday 56 and Steve Jobs


There was a hacker subculture--filled with wireheads, phreakers, cyberpunks, hobbyists, and just plain geeks--that included engineers who didn't conform to the HP mold and their kids who weren't attuned to the wavelengths of the subdivisions. 
- p. 56-57, Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson


If you love Apple products (read: me), then you probably want to read this too. Finally borrowed a copy from a friend and I am intrigued. Yes another biography. (And yes, I haven't blogged about the Warren Buffett biography ... I admit, I'm slow on the reviews lately).

I am already Friday'd out, so the weekend should be good. If haven't already, check out the e-book giveaway of The Earthquake Machine by Mary Pauline Lowry. I'm planning to roll things up earlier than the April 20 deadline because I finished the book earlier than expected.

So, what are you reading? Join in on the Friday 56 fun over at Freda's Voice!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I'm anti-Apple unfortunately... hubby has the Ipad and Ipod, me, I prefer Kindle and Sony.
    Still probably an interesting read based on a smart and innovative man.

  2. Can't wait to read your review on this one! But I'm afraid it might make me a thousand ++ pesos poorer ;)
