Steve Jobs, a life. In 94 seconds


Taiwan-based Next Media Animation (NMA) TV released its video version of Apple's former chief executive officer Steve Jobs' biography, bringing to animation the last moments of his life and some of his most remarkable quotes: all in a concise, funny 94 seconds-long video.

The animation, titled 'Steve Jobs' biography flies off shelves') begins with Jobs talking to Walter Isaacson, author of the official biography, iBiography, published this week.  

The NMA video narrator says Jobs refused to read the book before it was published but got the cover designed the way he wanted. 'In it we find Jobs regretted not getting surgery sooner,' the narrator says while an animated version of Jobs punches a guy, who wears a t-shirt saying 'Juicing cures cancer.'

The video then moves on to covering some remarkable moments of Jobs' life, such as when he told US President, Barack Obama, he would be 'a one-term president': the clip, which shows an embarrassed Obama, is soon followed by a hilarious Jobs-Bill Gates moment.

The narrator says Jobs once stated Gates could be 'a broader' guy if he dropped acid: images of the two dancing together against a fluorescent background under the effect of acid complete the scene.  

The video also reports the iBiography hints at a new version of Apple TV controlled by Siri and wonders on Jobs' legacy, with the narrator asking: 'Will Apple carry out Jobs' goal of waging 'thermonuclear war' on Android?'

The animation then moves on representing Jobs' successor, Tim Cook, as a Luke Skywalker exercising with a laser sword in presence of an ephemeral Steve Jobs.

"Afraid that Apple will flounder like Disney after Walt passed on, Jobs told his successor Tim Cook never to ask: 'What would Steve do?' Instead, Cook should do what's right," the narrator concludes.
