The question came up in conversation: How did Steve Jobs pronounce his last name? The legendary Apple co-founder and tech-design guru died Thursday, at age 56, possibly of complications from a bout with pancreatic cancer that began in 2004. On news reports, his surname has most often been said to rhyme with lobs . But some say the correct way is like the Biblical character, Job, and the name should rhyme with lobes . A couple of YouTube videos give a clear answer.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - He was the visionary techie, the marketing genius, the choleric corporate leader who could never quite scrub the rebel out of his soul. But most of all, standing there in his black mock turtleneck at the intersection of passion and technology, Steve Jobs seemed to know intuitively what consumers needed in their lives, even before they themselves could put a finger on it. Decades after co-creating Apple Inc., one of the planet's most storied companies, then leaving it behind, then returning to reinvent it and pump it full of high-voltage ideas until it became the world's most-valuable tech company, Jobs leaves a cultural landscape forever altered by his gadgetry and gusto.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Steve Jobs has resigned as CEO at Apple, the company he co-founded at age 21 and turned into an international business icon, known for its tremendous profits and elegantly designed devices like the iPhone, iPad and Mac computers. The Cupertino, Calif., company announced yesterday that veteran executive Tim Cook has been named as Jobs' replacement. In a letter, Jobs said the time to leave had arrived. "I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's CEO, I would be the first to let you know.

By Walter Isaacson Simon & Schuster. 630 pp. $35 Reviewed by Michael D. Schaffer Steve Jobs was all about things: elegantly designed things, wondrously innovative things, meticulously made things. Heck, let's steal his own quote: Steve Jobs was all about "insanely great" things. And about people? Not so much. Yelling and humiliation were mainstays of his management style; kindness was rare, meanness was not. Yet, along with the rage went a charisma that mesmerized those who worked with him and for him, drawing them into his dreams, with amazing results.

Few of us make a ripple in the grand river of time. We may leave descendants, some possessions passed along to subsequent generations. Steve Jobs, who died Wednesday at age 56, was not that sort of person. What he did, who he was, changed our lives, altering the landscape of technology, communication, and entertainment. He was the bend in the river. He imagined our future through brilliant marketing, making progress tangible and tactile. "You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.

CUPERTINO, Calif. - Steve Jobs, who sparked a revolution in the technology industry then presided over it as Silicon Valley's radiant Sun King, died Wednesday. The incandescent center of a tech universe around which all the other planets revolved, Jobs had a genius for stylish design and a boyish sense of what was "cool. " He was 56 when he died, ahead of his time to the very end. According to a spokesman for Apple Inc. - the company Jobs co-founded when he was just 21 and turned into one of the world's great industrial-design houses - he suffered from a recurrence of the pancreatic cancer for which he had undergone surgery in 2004.

The memorial flowers, candles, and notes of touching tribute left outside Apple stores on several continents may say it all about the extraordinary impact of Apple Inc. cofounder Steve Jobs, a man certain to be regarded as among the most unique American industrialists. Jobs, 56, who died Wednesday after a long battle with cancer, was the rarest of corporate titans in that his customers, admirers, and critics alike somehow felt a deep personal connection to him. That stemmed, no doubt, from the fact that Jobs' company put its music players, cellphones, laptops, and tablets in the pockets, purses, and backpacks of so many millions in the past decade.

Stephen Klasko is the new president and CEO of Thomas Jefferson University and the Jefferson Health System. A fan of Star Trek , he wants to push Jefferson forward into the next century - steering away from health care's traditional model of big-edifice hospitals and real estate and instead toward localized medical offices. Jefferson's new offices in Fairmount will aim to do just that. The health-care giant will lease 12,000 square feet at developer Neal Rodin's new project, Rodin Square, putting Jefferson doctors in the same building as apartment dwellers.

IT'S ONE thing for Hollywood to keep re-telling the story of Jesus or keep re-making Superman movies, but is it already time for another biopic on Steve Jobs ? The Ashton Kutcher version came out last year. TheWrap.com, however, reports that Christian Bale is David Fincher 's choice to play Jobs in a new untitled movie that Aaron Sorkin has written for Sony. Fincher recently met with Sony's Amy Pascal to discuss the possibility of directing the film, and told her, in no uncertain terms, that he'd helm the project only if Bale plays Jobs.

Danced hearts out Over the fall and through the winter, young men and women from Penn State could be seen shivering at street corners across Pennsylvania with cans in hand - collecting donations for THON, the student-run dance marathon supporting families whose kids are suffering from pediatric cancer. By the time of the event on the last weekend in February, they had raised a record amount, more than $13 million. Of course, not all that was collected at street corners: Penn State alums, corporations, and donors big and small also supported this good cause.

THERE'S a new (2.0 edition) musical in town called "Nerds" that techies will relish for its smart, insider's perspective and that pretty much any theater fan should enjoy for its flip attitude (think "Book of Mormon," "Avenue Q" and "Spamalot"), inspired performances, rocking (and even rappin') show tunes and snappy staging. Just launched by the Philadelphia Theatre Company at the Suzanne Roberts Theatre, "Nerds" is a ridiculously amusing, mocking and also knowledgeable (ouch!) send-up of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, the oft-warring titans of tech who changed everything with the commercialization of affordable and user-friendly (sometimes)

In the world of social media and digital communications, 2007 was the olden days. That year, the musical NERDS debuted, to great applause, at the Philadelphia Theatre Company. The musical satire tracks the careers of Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, the world's two most famous (and richest) nerds. Now it's back, same place, running from Friday to Dec. 29. Problem is, in the world of social/mobile computing/com, 2007 is unimaginably long ago . . . pre-iPhone !

"I THINK WHAT Kanye West is going to mean is something similar to what Steve Jobs means. I am undoubtedly, you know, Steve of Internet, downtown, fashion, culture. Period. By a long jump. I honestly feel that because Steve has passed, you know, it's like when Biggie passed, and Jay-Z was allowed to become Jay-Z. I've been connected to the most culturally important albums of the past four years, the most influential artists of the past 10 years . . . I got the answers. I understand culture.

IT TURNS out that "Captain Phillips" didn't need the U.S. Navy to defeat a small band of Somali pirates. All he needed was Britney Spears . London's Daily Mirror reports that Britney's hits are being blasted at the seafaring Somalis because they can't stand her music. Or it's a clever lure to her upcoming Las Vegas show. "Baby One More Time" and "Oops! I Did It Again" appear to be the most effective sonic weapons. "These guys can't stand Western culture or music, making Britney's hits perfect," said merchant naval officer Rachel Owens . Or maybe they just don't like old Britney.

News comes in all shapes and sizes. There's vacuous fluff (see below), breaking crime stories, urgent disaster reports. Then there's Beyoncé news. That, above all, is vital news. Important news. And news you can use to better yourself. Numerous media sources are reporting that Jay Z 's wife and Blue Ivy 's mom has sheared her hair, those hip-hop-flavored Rapunzel tresses (and skillfully deployed extensions) we've grown to love. B posted an Instagram pic late Wednesday night that showed her with a short - very, very short - blond pixie cut.   Usher: Usher V is recovering "I am blessed and fortunate to say that my son Usher V is doing well and is recovering," says megastar singer Usher , whose son nearly drowned in a pool on Monday.

NEW YORK - Apple Inc. broke antitrust laws and conspired with publishers to raise electronic book prices significantly in spring 2010, a federal judge ruled Wednesday, citing "compelling evidence" from the words of the late Steve Jobs. U.S. District Judge Denise Cote said Apple knew that no publisher could risk acting alone to try to eliminate Amazon.com's $9.99 price for the most popular e-books, so it "created a mechanism and environment that enabled them to act together in a matter of weeks to eliminate all retail price competition for their e-books.
