The world mourned the loss of Apple founder and former CEO, the mercurial Steve Jobs who died of complications from a rare pancreatic disease on October 5 at age 56. Now, the no holds barred story of Steve Jobs is finally out today in iBooks for the iPhone and iPad, and in Amazon for the Kindle.
Just got my notification email for the pre-order of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson a few minutes ago (price is $17.99 for the digital copy).
However, I’m having problems accessing the store after clicking the “download pre-order now” link. Update: was able to access link and received a notification that all pre-orders have been successfully completed. Download time apparently seems really slooow. I don’t know how pre-ordering the book helped me in this scenario. Figured out the problem – a pending iTunes download was being prioritized over my Steve Jobs purchase. Once I paused that iTunes download, Steve Jobs purchase proceeded smoothly.
