Apple’s Former Head of Retail Talks About Working With Steve Jobs
Buster Hein on Steve Jobs’ love of sushi — and one place in Japan, in particular:
Before Jobs died in October 2011 he made one last hire – Toshi Sakuma. With the fast-paced lifestyle weighing on him, Sakuma decided to sell the restaurant. Unable to find a quick buyer, Jobs offered Sakuma a job at Caffè Mac where Apple employees can still go to enjoy the sushi Jobs loved for a quarter century.
The restaurant was set to close on October 7th, and according to Nobi, Jony Ive’s secretary scheduled a reservation and mentioned a special guest (presumed to be Jobs) would be joining. A cancellation soon followed when news of Jobs’ death broke.
Kaygetsu’s last day of business was the same day as Steve’s funeral.

Apple was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne on April 1, 1976 to develop and sell personal computers. It was incorporated as Apple Computer, Inc. on January 3, 1977, and was renamed as Apple Inc. on January 9, 2007 to reflect its shifted focus towards consumer electronics.
Oscar winner Christian Bale is David Fincher’s choice to play Steve Jobs in the untitled movie that Aaron Sorkin has written for Sony, an individual familiar with the project has told TheWrap.
While Steve Jobs is a long way from Batman, Bale has been considered a prime contender to play the tech superhero since the project was first announced due to his physical resemblance to the Apple co-founder.
Bale has not been approached to play Jobs yet, as the actor is taking a brief break from the business to spend time with his family since wrapping the role of Moses in Ridley Scott’s “Exodus.” The Biblical epic is expected to have Bale back in the awards conversation.
I would fully endorse this casting choice. Not only is there a physical resemblance, some might say there’s a similar temperament as well.
"It’s hard to imagine this would work as well with other equipment that doesn’t have Apple’s cult following. If hacked old computers were available for sale, would you want to buy a Dell from 2003?" - These classic Macs from the late ’80s have been fitted with iPads inside, making them a hybrid of recycled Apple parts.
