To prepare for his latest role in Jobs, Ashton took “Apple” a little too literally and adopted Steve Jobs’ “fruit diet” to really get into character. The move sent Ashton straight to the top, and by “the top” I of course mean “the hospital.” More

Even though I’m sure his bundle of joy North West was the ultimate Father’s Day gift, in that she was born the day before Father’s Day, you can’t just leave Kanye empty-handed on a day named after him. Yes, Father’s Day is named after him, in that he is now a father, in the same way Christmas is named after him in that he is a Christ figure. Yeez-louise, get with the program. More
The first trailer for Jobs is finally out, and as much as I wanted Ashton Kutcher to be able to pull off that iconic role…I don’t know that he is. He may look like him, and he’s doing his Ashton-y bro stuff less than usual, but it’s right there under the surface and distracting my impressionable eyeholes. More
If you, like me, have been lying awake at night wondering whether Ashton Kutcher was going to pull off the role of Steve Jobs in Jobs biopic jOBS, or if he was going to do a bad job because his intense handsomeness and bubbly himbo nature would get in the way, wonder no more. The first clip from the movie has just been released, and it is…informative. More

Steve Jobs died Wednesday of a rare type of cancer, just weeks after receiving a liver transplant and stepping down from his long-time position as Apple’s CEO after saying that he “could no longer meet [his] duties and expectations as Apple CEO.” But while we’ll likely be learning from his example in business and tech for decades to come, it doesn’t seem like we’ll be learning nearly so much about his cancer or treatment.
