News Flash: Steve Jobs Passes Away At 56 — 1955-2011

Via Apple:

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

If you would like to share your thoughts, memories, and condolences, please email rememberingsteve@apple.com

Steve Jobs has changed my life in immeasurable ways. I will never forget what he did for computers, technology, and the world. He will never be forgotten by me.

From all us iPhone users: Thank you, Steve Jobs.

Most Wanted: Apple’s Big Event

This week, is an odd one. For the first time since the list was made, I didn’t post 2 consecutive weeks of the Most Wanted List. I didn’t do it intentionally, but when I realized it, I found it pointless to, because it was already too late. For that, I’m sorry. Although I feel a bit awkward to put out one after a long time, this week is a very eventful and important one. I think you guys know what the first one is. It’s very obvious due to this week’s events. So here we go: here’s the list!

1. Apple’s ‘Let’s Talk iPhone’ Event

It’s that time of year again. Actually, it should have occurred back in June, but a little device called the Verizon iPhone got in the way of that. Nonetheless, its here. Apple is expected to unveil some kind of device, whether its the iPhone 5 or 4S or iPod Touch 5 or all, is yet to be known. What will it be? Tune in at Apple’s press event in Cupertino today for the announcement (note: It will be the first iPhone event without founder and former CEO Steve Jobs).

2. Homeland

I didn’t get the chance to alert you of this show, but this one’s a MUST WATCH! The crazy thing is that this show wasn’t on my radar at all, and it turns out that it’s one of (if not,) the best new show of the Fall. Plot in one sentence: A slightly crazy CIA Agent suspects that a soldier who was in captivity for 8 years has been turned against his country. Two words for you all: WATCH IT.

3. Parks and Recreation

The season is off to a great start, and with last week’s episode full of liquor and Tammys, I can’t wait for what’s in store for TV’s best comedy.

4. American Horror Story – Series Premiere

The reviews haven’t been great, but the fact of the matter is, nothing likethis has been done on TV. Many are calling it scary, bizarre, and outrageous. I’ll watch the first 3 episodes to give it a chance, but I’m very reluctant.

5. iPod

Will the iPod classic be discontinued? That’s another question at Apple’s big event today.

That’s all for this week! Again, sorry for the lack of lists and posts, I’m trying to figure things out to make the s

Most Wanted: Emmy Nominations and Friday Night Lights Finale!

20110711-120853.jpg

I had a very difficult time choosing this weeks top spot, and it truly sucks that they happen in the same week. Since I only post things that occur on that week, this marks the first time that I have a tie on the list! This of course won’t happen often, but there’s a first for everything. Other things on the list include a very historic film opening/closing, another Summer TV premiere, and an iOS game I can’t stop playing. Also, since it’s a tie, I will technically have 4 slots, but it will have 5 topics, it’s just that two of them are on one number. With all that said, here’s the list!

1. Emmy Nominations and Friday Night Lights Series Finale

First, I’ll start with Emmy nominations, and I can’t wait until Thursday! We’ll find out who got nominated, who didn’t, and we’ll also find out who got a surprise non and who got snubbed. Could Joel McHale get a nom for Community? Will Ed O’Neill finally get some love from the academy? We’ll have to wait and find out this Thursday when the Emmy nominations are announced!

Next: The Series Finale of Friday Night Lights, and I couldn’t be more sad about it. I’ll be doing a full-length post later this week on the FNL, but this show is so incredible, so real, that I can’t believe it didn’t catch on. It first matter though, five seasons is an incredible amount of time for a show like this to last, although I would’ve like it to last 10 or more seasons. Get ready to cry, because this one is for the record books. Friday Night Lights ends it’s run this Friday at 8PM on NBC.

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

This film opening effectively ends the decade-long franchise that reinvigorated the book industry and brought a world of imagination to millions of readers, parents and children alike. J.K. Rowling’s adventure of the little boy who could has broken records across the board, from being one of the best-selling books of all time, to being the most successful film franchise ever, surpassing over $6 Billion in ticket sales. I honestly can’t see a franchise being so big ever again, so congrats, Harry, and thank you.

3. Rizzoli & Isles – Season Premiere

Yes, Jane and Maura are back! The biggest new hit of Summer 2010 returns with some answers regarding the shooting of Jane in last season’s finale. Did she survive? I’m certain of it. But the real question is how she changed after the shooting. Make sure you watch to get some answers tonight on TNT!

4. Tiny Tower – iPhone/iPod touch

I can’t tell you how addicted I am to this game. I can’t stop checking in to see how many coins I earned while I was gone. In this game, you basically own a building where you add apartments and stores where your tenants can work at, and as your businesses develop, you earn money and with that money, you can add additional floors, eventually making a big tower that’s crazy busy and a huge money maker. As of today, I have 11 floors (which isn’t big by any means) and a little north of 40,000 coins. If you want to add me as a friend on Game Center, add me! My username is [take a wild guess:] JuniorTV.

That’s a wrap for this week! If nothing unexpectedly crazy happens next week, I will have 5 topics next Monday. Until then, thanks for reading The Most Wanted List!
