Steve Jobs – The Man In The Machine Rings In The New Year On CNN

Steve Jobs -The Man In The Machine 

Happy New Year One And All. I hope this year brings you peace, prosperity, good health and joy.  We all need these elements in our lives  – now more than ever before. Therefore,  as we look ahead to 2016,  I wish you only the very best that life can offer. 

And, to start things off with geek-like style and substance , CNN will air Steve Jobs – The Man In The Machine on Sunday, January 3rd at 9:00 PM Eastern.

This CNN documentary film about Apple Co – Founder, Steve Jobs, was produced and directed by Alex Gibney and promises an authentic look at how Steve Jobs came to be one of the most successful and historic inventors of our time.   According to CNN, he will be portrayed as “bold, brutal and brilliant”. 

 I guess it all depends on one’s point of view, but, truth be told, you have to be all three to make a revolutionary difference in the world. 

So tune into CNN at 9:00 PM or set your DVR to record it for safekeeping. I am sure the interviews will be riveting and will include unique footage . Lots of candour and surprises!

And – please – share your thoughts about the documentary in the comments below. Your feedback keeps this blog alive and functioning.

Well, here is your “wake me up” story of the day.

According to TheSocialMediaToday.Com, CNN acquired the enormously successful Social Media Site, Mashable.Com for $200 million smackers. That’s a lot of travel and enjoy money.

Here is the background:

Mashable (Mashable Inc.) is a Scottish news website and Internet news blog founded by Pete Cashmore.The website’s primary focus is social media news, but also covers news and developments in mobile, entertainment, online video, business, web development, technology, memes and gadgets. Mashable was launched by Pete Cashmore from his home in Aberdeen, Scotland in July 2005.

With a reported 50+ million monthly pageviews and an Alexa ranking under 250, Mashable ranks as one of the world’s largest websites. Time Magazine noted Mashable as one the 25 best blogs in 2009,and has been described as “one stop shop” for social media. As of March 2012, it has over 2,775,000 Twitter followers and over 838,400 fans on Facebook.

I really have to start working harder on my site.

Congratulations to the folks at Mashable.Com, particularly founder Pete Cashmore. Your hard work and dedication have been amply rewarded.
