The New York Times > Technology > Apple Chief Strikes Back Over Biography

The New York Times > Technology > Apple Chief Strikes Back Over Biography: " Apple Computer has retaliated against the publisher of an unauthorized biography about Steven P. Jobs, its chief executive, by removing dozens of other technology books sold by the publisher from Apple stores around the world.
Apple removed the books last week from all 104 of its stores after failing in a monthlong attempt to persuade John Wiley & Sons not to release 'iCon: Steve Jobs, the Greatest Second Act in the History of Business,' which is to go on sale within the next six weeks, the publisher said. "

This is the latest chapter in the long history of Steve Jobs trying to control media coverage. It's also self-destructive and futile, as is removing all books published by John Wiley & Sons from Apple stores.
