Steve Jobs’ BMW Z8 – originally purchased by Apple’s late co-founder and CEO in 2000.
Currently up for auction at Sotheby’s for between €260,000 and €340,000 (complete with full documentation including a rare ‘pink slip’ registered to Job’s home address and a BMW branded Motorola flip phone which Jobs hated).

The search has once again begun to find Ireland’s best websites. Realex and the Web Awards are joining forces for the seventh year running to recognise websites in 30 categories including News and Media, Entertainment and Arts, Technology and Social, Government, Education and Community, Commerce and Mobile sectors as well as Technical Awards.
All categories of the free to enter awards are open to nominations from anyone (excepting sponsors who cannot enter)..
The Web & eCommerce Awards have a special place in the Irish web community – because nominations are open to the public, they give smaller companies a chance for recognition.
This year’s award sees a new category which is sure to generate interest is Most Influential Website in Ireland (over the last 15 years) Nominations are open until 4pm on August 20th at webawards.ie/nominations. The shortlist will be announced on September 2nd and the finalists on September 29th….

A Breaking Bad parody by Aaron Simpson for Youtube’s Geek Week in which:
A terminal cancer diagnosis sends Steve Jobs into beastmode, and into the lab with Jony Ive to cook up the most addictive substance known to man.
It’s in terribly bad taste. But you could always cut it with a little smack.
Meanwhile, in other iNews…
Sony Pictures is currently developing its own Steve Jobs pic, based on the biography by Walter Isaacson.

An advertising campaign launched recently by the Taiwanese manufacturers of Android tablet Action Pad.
Steve Jobs-alike Ken (complete with inappropriate angel wings) sez: “Thank God I finally get to play other tablets.”
