Latest Insights from new Steve Jobs bio

Here's a link to a neat story from Australia's Smart Company ( cobbling together some early leaks from Walter Isaacson's new biography of Steve Jobs. (It's due to be published Monday morning.) Among the revelations:

* Steve intended (and Apple may still intend) to upend the entire TV market;
* Jobs swore to "destroy" the Android platform, which he considered "stolen" from iPhone technology;
* Steve dismissed Bill Gates - whose invetsment in Apple probably saved Jobs' job: "Bill is basically unimaginative and has never invented anything ... He just shamelessly ripped off other people's ideas."
* Jobs hoped Apple wouldn't go the way of Hewlett Packard after he passed away: "Hewlett and Packard built a great company, and they thought they had left it in good hands," Jobs said. "But now it's being dismembered and destroyed."

You can read the fiull story here. Or buy the book in a few hours.
