It’s been making the rounds for a few days but there’s a hyper detailed posable action figure of the late Apple messiah in the works, but not if Apple has anything to say about it. The iconic Silicon Valley legend would have been yours to purchase for a cool Benjamin but now Apple’s sent the company a cease and desist letter. Reportedly the letter says that any toy that infringes on Apple copyrights is unlawful. Unsurprisingly, the legal threat hasn’t stopped some of the dolls from making their way to eBay.

If you can’t get enough of Steve Jobs, there’s a graphic novel coming that explores the in-between period of his life– after getting booted from Apple in the mid-80s and before. It’s called The Zen of Steve Jobs and it is a story told in an intentionally minimalist style. The comic details Jobs’ relationship with famous Zen Buddhist Kobun Otogawa and the impact he had on the tech revolutionary and how Jobs recentered himself before Jobs reclaimed Apple and later the technology world. It’s available now on Amazon.
