The global visionary: Steve Jobs launches iTunes in Europe

Steve Jobs, By Walter Isaacson

It was one of the Sunday papers that got it. Not the serialisation rights to Walter Isaacson's exemplary biography of Steve Jobs (though it got that, too), but the epitome of the coarse-grained, dullard response to the story of Jobs's life.
