I long admired his entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen and was in sheer awe of his natural instincts for what appeals to consumers. On the other hand I bristled at what I saw as his — and by extension Apple’s — occasionally capricious and even contradictory actions (App store products in or out, inability to get in front of product issues, antennaegate) and super-secretive nature. Now, having finished the 600-plus page Steve Jobs biography by Walter Isaacson, I think I finally understand Steve Jobs. As I read the tome on my Kindle, I highlighted interesting, surprising and relevant passages. Don’t Wait When the young Steve Jobs wanted to build something and needed a piece of equipment, he went straight to the source. “He began by recalling that he had wanted to build a frequency counter when he was twelve, and he was able to look up Bill Hewlett, the founder of HP, in the phone book and call him to get parts.” Be Yourself

'Three formats cannot be played in equal numbers' | Cricket Features | Global Rahul Dravid's speech at the Bradman Oration in Canberra, in which he covered issues from flaws in cricket scheduling to the need for cricketers to be more transparent Thank you for inviting me to deliver the Bradman Oration; the respect and the regard that came with the invitation to speak tonight, is deeply appreciated.

I know that this Oration is held every year to appreciate the life and career of Sir Don Bradman, a great Australian and a great cricketer. I understand that I am supposed to speak about cricket and issues in the game - and I will. Yet, but first before all else, I must say that I find myself humbled by the venue we find ourselves in.

We share something else other than cricket.
