This is not the first Steve Jobs, but it's definitely the most realistic. So realistic that it actually freaks me out. It's 12 inches high (scale 1:6) and comes on full Apple CEO regalia, from the New Balance shoes to the Levi's.
If you are a freaky fanboy, you can get it for $100 before the Jobs family send a cease and desist letter to the manufacturers, just like they did with the last one. It also has complements, although not as good as Obama's action figure.

They did a good job on the doll. Looks totally realistic.
I wouldn't buy one though.

And why didn't anyone care he died? They both died around the same time.
If you’re a Linux developer, have a programming degree, or are the founder of a billion-dollar tech company, then you already likely know about Dennis Ritchie, who passed away this week. For the rest of us, though, hearing about the death of someone who created a programming language might not resonate right away. May I suggest, then, that you remove that new iPhone 4S from your pocket and briefly marvel at iOS 5. Or power on your PC, and enjoy Windows. Or maybe fire up your MacBook Air, and soak up the brilliance of OS X. Or start up your Linux machine… What am I saying is that if you’re on Linux (of any sort), then you already know who Ritchie was.

You wouldn't be using any sort of operating system had this guy not been around. He helped develop languages for computers most notably C and UNIX, but his work dates back towards the 1960's.
