Weekends tend to be rather slow when it comes to tech news, but thanks to the launch of Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs, even those sites that usually don’t cover Apple news in detail kept pumping out stories as more and more details from the book leaked before today’s release date. The book, in its various e-Book and hardcover editions currently dominates Amazon’s sales charts, just as it dominated the tech news over the weekend. Having read about a quarter through the book by now, I have to say that it’s definitely worth a read – not just for the insights into Jobs’ life and thoughts, but also because it’s a fascinating history of Silicon Valley and the players that made it what it is today.

Today’s list then mostly focuses on Jobs, but we also found a number of other interesting stories that aren’t directly related to Apple.
