An animated summary of the Steve Jobs biography


Haven't had time to read "Steve Jobs," the authorized biography of Apple's late co-founder, just yet? No worries! There's a minute-and-a-half-long animated video which summarizes bits of the six-hundred-page book.

The video is brought to us by Taiwan's New Media Animation news crew — the folks who previously portrayed Jobs as a Ninja-wannabe who carries deadly throwing starsa crook who preys on children,  an evil Darth Vader type of character, and so on — and as expected, it's full of satirical exaggerations.

You can check out the video below, but keep in mind that it's only a silly summary of what is revealed in "Steve Jobs." No video could possibly sum up everything that acclaimed biographer Walter Isaacson managed to uncover over the course of two years and through countless interviews.

If you're looking for a more serious animated video about Jobs — no, that's not an oxymoron — then you might want to check out the solemn clip NMA created right after his death.
