New Issue of Time Magazine Pays Tribute to Steve Jobs, iPad Edition is in the App Store Now

The October 17 issue of Time Magazine has Steve Jobs on its cover, and has a number of excellent tributes to Jobs within its pages – including a brief one from Walter Isaacson, the author of the soon-to-released authorized biography of Jobs.

The issue also features some wonderful photos of Jobs over the years. If you’re a fan of Steve Jobs or at all interested in him, this is a great issue of Time to pick up, as a printed or digital keepsake.

Here are just a few of the quotes and figures in this issue that caught my eye:

— This is the 7th time Jobs has been on the cover of Time – a number the editor says ‘puts him in the category of presidents and other world leaders’.

— The editor’s note also says:

Over the years, we’ve done our best to track the life of a man who changed all our lives irreversibly and for the better.

— When he heard the news of Jobs’ death, Time’s editor called Isaacson, and two hours later Isaacson had sent a ‘poignant, insightful appreciation of Steve’s life, including his memories of his final days’. Isaacson had unprecedented access to Jobs for his authorized biography – including more than 40 interviews over two years.

— Isaacson says of Jobs in his piece for this issue:

He revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. You might even add a seventh: retailing, which Jobs did not quite revolutionize but did reimagine.

— The opening of a piece titled ‘The Inventor of the Future’ Lev Grossman and Harry McCracken:

Steve Jobs remade the world as completely as any single human ever has, but he had no business doing it. … Jobs’ expertise was less in computers than it was in the humans who used them.

And here are some of the superb photos of Steve Jobs you’ll find in this issue:

I’m not sure when the October 17 print issue will hit the streets (maybe it already has) but I do know that you can get the iPad edition right now in the App Store.

Here’s an App Store link for Time Magazine for iPad; the app is free and the October 17 issue (and all single issues) is priced at $4.99.
