Today, biographer Walter Issacson told the New York Times that he intentionally left out details about a variety of products that Steve was working on. Not only was Steve working on a television, related Issacson, but the Apple co-founder also “wanted to reinvent” photography and textbooks, too.
He had three things that he wanted to reinvent: the television, textbooks and photography. He really wanted to take these on. I didn’t go into details about these products in the book because it was implicitly Apple’s creations and it’s not fair to the company to reveal these details. But, he did talk about the television. He told me he’d “licked it” and once said, “There’s no reason you should have all these complicated remote controls.”
