Steve Jobs Check Auction Steve Jobs Check Auction

An original Bank of America check signed by Steve Jobs back in 1988 is up for auction. The auction is organized by Nate D. Sanders Auctions, a leader in auctioned documents and autographs.

The $2,000 check was a receipt to Tina Redse, Jobs’ girlfriend at that time, dated March 11, 1988. The check has Jobs’ signature, ‘steven jobs’ in the signature line, along with his phone number and address. The bidding starts at a mere $20,000 and is open until February 23, a day prior Steve Jobs’ birthday.

Very scarce check signed by Steve Jobs, made out entirely in his hand to his girlfriend Tina Redse. Dated 11 March 1988, Jobs writes the check for $2,000 to Redse, singed ”steven jobs” on the signature line. At this time, Jobs was launching NeXT, and possibly engaged to Redse, who had a tumultuous relationship with the tech magnate throughout the 1980s before they broke off their engagement in 1989.

If you’re interested in placing bids, make sure you do that within the timeframe. More details about the auction can be found here.

New details about the new iPhones have emerged from China. These are the details that Apple never shares during its keynote — some major tech specs that Android makers bragg about in general.

Regulatory filings from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (TENNA) have revealed the internal RAM and battery size on the latest iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone XR.

According to the documents, first spotted by China’s MyDriver, the iPhone Xs has a 2,658mAh battery, which is slightly smaller than the iPhone X’s 2,716mAh unit. Yet, Apple claims the handset will offer up to 30 more minutes of life than its predecessor.

The iPhone Xs Max has a battery with 3,174mAh in capacity, offering 90 more minutes of usage than the iPhone X in a single charge case, touts Apple. The more affordable iPhone XR is equipped with a 2,942mAh battery, promising 90 more minutes of usage against the iPhone 8.

As far as volatile memory is in question, the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max both have 4GB of RAM, while the iPhone XR has 3GB. For the record, last year’s iPhone X and iPhone 8 had 3GB and 2GB of memory, respectively.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max arrive in stores on Friday, September 21 with pre-orders open now. If you’re awaiting iPhone XR, then pre-orders open on Friday, October 19 with sales commencing the following week on Friday, October 26.

‘Crazy Rich Asians’ director Jon M. Chu shoots short film on iPhone Xs Max

“There’s a shot at the end where I’m rushing toward the garage–that’s using the built-in stabilizers. It’s pretty smooth.”

Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu has shot a short film entirely on the iPhone Xs Max. The two-minute-long film, called ‘Somewhere,’ focuses on dancer Luigi Rosado’s rehearsal space in 4K.

WIRED provided Chu with an iPhone Xs Max to test Apple’s best camera yet, with ‘zero equipment.’ Chu didn’t use any professional lighting or stabilizer, in fact, the video was shot handheld in a garage under fluorescent lights using the native camera app and stabilizer.

The video was edited on a computer without any color correction or post-production tricks, preserving the native iPhone Xs flare.

“I’m moving around a lot, and the focus was adjusting as I was moving, but it was finding the subject really well,” says Chu. “There’s a shot at the end where I’m rushing toward the garage–that’s using the built-in stabilizers. It’s pretty smooth.”

Chu says he’s going to upgrade to the iPhone Xs Max from the iPhone X, as the former is lighter than the iPhone 8 Plus, and doesn’t even feel like a Plus-sized phone.
