Jobs' biography to include shock resignation

Apple c.e.o. Steve Jobs' authorised biography, which is published by Little, Brown this November, is set to include the story of Jobs' shock resignation from the technology company on Wednesday night.

The book, written by journalist Walter Isaacson, is set to release on 21st November, priced £25. Its US publisher is Simon & Schuster which told PCMag overnight that Isaacson "speaks to Jobs regularly and is still working on the final chapter of the book".

Jobs stepped down as the head of Apple last night (24th August). He said he could no longer meet his chief executive duties and expectations. He had been battling pancreatic cancer and has been on medical leave for an undisclosed condition since 17th January.

Jobs will be replaced by chief operating officer Tim Cook. Jobs said: "I believe Apple's brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role."
