According to MTV, theÂ Flaming Lips will perform a tribute song to in honor of Mr. Jobs atÂ MTV O Music Awards 2Â on October 31 at 8:30pm PDT/11:30pm EST. The band is reportedly planning to play a cover of The Beatles’ “Revolution.” What’s more, the performance is set to be recorded with an iPad and broadcast on OMusicAwards.com.
The song choice is a clear reference to Jobs’ love of The Beatles as a musical group andÂ a business model. That’s right, Jobs went on record saying that the band was a perfect example of how to run a successful business. According to him,
“They were four guys that kept each otherâ€™s negative tendencies in check; they balanced each other. And the total was greater than the sum of the parts. Great things in business are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people.”
In fact The Beatles make a few appearances in the new biography Steve JobsÂ by Walter Isaacson, which has rapidly become a massive best seller. Countless individuals purchased the nearly 600-page book when it debuted earlier this week, many of them opting for the iBook version for obvious reasons. Unfortunately, though, it seems like more than a few customers have had issues with the digital version.
According to Macworld UK, Apple has begun issuing emails to customers asking them to delete and re-download their copy. This comes in response to reports that customers were experiencing text formatting issues and problems with photos being displayed properly. Luckily Apple has taken notice and the iBook has been updated and is available for re-download at no additional charge.
Simply delete the book, sign out of iBooks, sign back in,Â and redownload the book by navigating to the â€œPurchasedâ€ tab in the iBookstore. Happy reading!
