CNBC will run a one-hour special on Apple CEO Steve Jobs tomorrow night, Thursday June 23rd at 9PM EDT. The show, part of CNBC's Titans series, will offer a look at Steve within interviews from a number of observers, including John Sculley, the former Pepsi-Co exec who famously pushed Jobs out of his own company.
From his parents' California garage he launched the personal computer revolution and built Apple into the most envied, and valuable, technology company in the world. From the Macintosh and the iPod, to iTunes and the iPhone, Jobs has personally presided over the creation of dozens of transformational devices, battling hostile corporate boards, cutthroat competitors, and life-threatening illness while securing his legacy as one of the few visionaries who dared to "Think Different."
"CNBC Titans #6: Steve Jobs" will premiere on Thursday, June 23rd at 9pm ET. The show will repeat that evening at 10pm ET, 12am ET and 1am ET. The show will also repeat on Sunday, June 26th at 9pm ET.

I would have used my iPad but it was busy streaming live TV.
I'm sure this will be on the torrent sites within hours of airing.
Oh Steve, I love you.
Didn't know about MS threatening to no longer develop Excel/Word for Mac OS ... yet its odd it would be that important since Lotus 1-2-3 and WordPerfect was so much more powerful then.
And sorry, but the whole successor thing. IMHO, the best successor, though probably a reluctant one, was featured in a couple shots, though without any speaking. Jonathan Ive. I think more than Phil Schiller, Scott Forstall, Tim Cook or any other high profile exec at Apple, Ive is the visionary that Steve is and much of Apple's and Steve's success is due in very large part to his contributions to their products.
