His net worth is a rapidly moving target, thanks to his holdings in Apple and Disney
Forbes' list of The World's Billionaires, published Thursday, estimated Steve Jobs' net worth at $5.5 billion, which made him the 136th richest person in the world.
But by their own admission, the list -- the work, they say, of more than 40 reporters in 13 countries toiling for the better part of a year -- is MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 11, 2010 6:27 AM ET
Now that we've all seen the iPad and debated its design merits, let's cut to the chase: This thing will rise or fall on content. If Steve Jobs can get a bunch of cool books and apps on the thing, we'll want one. If not, we won't.
Where will His Steveness get some of those books? I say the same place he's gotten so many movies and TV shows for iTunes MOREJon Fortt - Feb 1, 2010 4:18 PM ET
CBS and Disney may join Apple's $30 per month TV service, says the Wall St. Journal
This could be totally disruptive. Or it could be another "hobby" like Apple TV that never quite takes off.
In a front-page story published Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal reported that CBS (CBS) and Disney (DIS) are "considering participating" in Apple's (AAPL) plan to offer television subscriptions over the Internet.
It was the first hint of interest MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 22, 2009 8:21 AM ET
Hulu touts about TV anytime, anywhere. But hooking your TV to the Net? Crazy talk!
I had an epiphany early last year when I visited Hulu for an article David Kirkpatrick and I were writing about the unexpectedly successful young venture.
Watching TV shows on Hulu was such a pleasant experience with Hulu that the company should encourage users to connect their PCs to televisions. Technologically it's not a difficult thing to MOREAdam Lashinsky, Sr. Editor at Large - Nov 11, 2009 6:52 AM ET
His net worth shot up to $5.4 billion Wednesday, only partly thanks to Apple
In September, Steve Jobs' $5.1 billion earned him the No. 43 spot on Forbes' list of the 400 richest Americans. Since then, Apple's shares have rocketed to a new all-time high, closing Wednesday at $204.92.
So Jobs was a lot richer Wednesday than he was in September -- $300 million richer, at least on paper -- but only MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 21, 2009 6:33 AM ET

Roundtable brings together top tech executives
Before there is Brainstorm Tech (the conference) there is Infotech Forty (the forum).
Fortune senior writer Jon Fortt and I are co-chairing an intimate event for a group of high-ranking technology executives whose jobs are becoming increasingly strategic in their corporations. No longer are these chief information officers and chief technology officers the folks who make company computers and software run; they play key roles in MOREStephanie N.

It's no accident that Eve, Wall-E's sleek, pod-like love interest in the forthcoming Disney/Pixar animated feature film by the same name, looks like something out of Apple's (AAPL) design department.
Writing in the current issue of Fortune, Richard Siklos reports that Jonathan Ive, head of Apple's design department and the man responsible for the iMac, iPod and iPhone, had a hand in creating the robot.
In the piece, director Andrew Stanton tells MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 12, 2008 12:53 PM ET
It may come as some consolation to the investors who lost their shirts as Apple (AAPL) shares collapsed over the past month that nobody lost more, at least on paper, than its CEO.
As the company's largest individual stockholder, with 5,546,451 shares directly owned, Steve Jobs (were he paying attention) could have watched the value of his holdings drop from $1.126 billion just before Christmas to $771 million at Wednesday's close, MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 24, 2008 7:58 AM ET
