[Now Reading] Steve Jobs by Walter Isaccson

October 25, 2011  |  Apple, Books

I pre-ordered the actual book along with the iBook version a week ago and finally the day has arrived when it is available to read.  This will be my first book in a long time to read that wasn’t a historical romance and one that is 656 pages long!

I am looking into purchasing the Kindle version to place it on my Kindle as well, the reason I got the iBooks version is because well “It’s STEVE JOBS! HOW CAN I NOT PURCHASE IT ON THE BLOODY iBOOK STORE!”

Will be reviewing it later on this week hopefully if I get a chance to actually sit down and read more of it! So far I can’t help but hear his voice while reading the book and getting goosebumps along the way.  He truly changed the world for us!

Thanks Steve for everything really! Especially for feeding my iObsession!

iPhone 4S [4 Steve] is HERE!

On October 7th I woke up really early even though I had only 2-4 hours of sleep I made sure to wake up to pre-order my iPhone 4S and make sure I was one of the first few to get it on launch day! Unfortunately the US Apple Store did not have the unlocked version available for sale until November so I headed over to the UK Apple Store and was able to place an order at around 10AM it was crazy didn’t get my confirmation letter until late that evening but well worth the wait.

Last Friday October 14th it was delivered to my Aramex UK mailbox and I anxiously waited for it to arrive to Kuwait, but unfortunately due to some trouble with people who didn’t log in the shipment my baby was not shipped until Monday (thanks to the Shop and Ship team on twitter @Shopandship) it was rushed over here and I got it today! WEDNESDAY that was the fastest shipment ever!

I am so happy and enjoying the unboxing experience as well as Siri, will review it shortly just thought I would make you all iJealous as I was these past few days.

I got the 64GB White model whereas father ordered the 32GB White model as well.  Oh yeah and Thanks Daddy! This was my early birthday gift! [He's still going to the US on my birthday will have him bring me something else from there, after all I am daddy's little girl :P]

So yeah there you have it! I got it for 305KD from the UK Apple Store + 7.800KD Shipping for both iPhones which still makes it cheaper than those thieves at XCite Electronics!

 

P.S. I am still getting the iPhone 5 next year or probably it will be called iPhone 6 because it is the 6th generation! It was the last project Papa Steve Jobs was working on closely before he passed away :(

While the Newspapers and other companies mourn for this amazing man I too am in mourning for him, whether I dedicate my mourning by wearing an Apple Shirt or by having one of the most amazing friends (L4a I LOVE YOU!)a person can have drop by their local Apple Store and write a post-it for me and stick it up on the window.  I mourn in different ways!

Pixar Mourns the Passing of the Great Steve Jobs

October 12, 2011  |  Apple, Sad

I am sorry but because Steve Jobs is a huge part of my technological life I would like to honor his memory with numerous posts about him.  And therefore if you find that I am obsessing over this, in reality I am not, I am just sad that we lost a visionary such as him.  Some people might say that most “apple users mourn the passing of Steve Jobs as though he was their father.” And in a way it’s true.

Pixar was one of the companies Steve Jobs headed and with “Toy Story” he put the company on the map in direct competition with Disney.  This week we see them and some of the characters mourn his passing.  Most of these characters are either angry, in denial, or have begun to accept the reality of the situation.  All in all it is very sad.
