    Surely, "The book of Job"

    From Wikipedia: "It relates the story of Job, his trials at the hands of the Satan, his theological discussions with friends on the origins and nature of his suffering, his challenge to God, and finally a response from God. "

    in this context, Satan would be Bill Gates, and God would be Steve Wozniak?

      "The Book of Jobs"

      Hmm, "The Book of Jobs" would be an awesome title. I didn't think it possible that anyone could come up with anything more epic than "iCon".

    Expect it to have a slightly shinier cover than most hardbacks, cost 3 times as much and be written in a proprietary DRM-encoded language that can only be read if you buy a pair of Apple iEyes.

    Usual pattern

    It will be announced well before delivery, leading to much speculation.

    So many people will want it that there will be queues when it goes on sale.

    People will critise it even if it is an interesting product. Bill Gates will hate it.

    It will be easy to use.

    It won't have a replaceable battery.

    It won't be cheap.

      You forgot one:

      It'll be obsoleted by a new edition in 4 months.

      You missed the most important one:

      - You'll only be able to read it the way his Jobsness tells you to

    Can we get...

    ..assurances that Jobs will die before this is published? I hate starting an incomplete book/series. You never know when an author will die, best to cover all the subject matter before publishing.

    Can be arranged...

    If you have enough money and know the right people. I unfortunately have neither.

    AC for obvious reasons, don't want a price on my head from all the fanboys because I suggested taking out Pope Steve I of Twat.
