Steve Jobs Controversial Biographer to Deliver Keynote Address at Southern California MacFair 2005.

NORWALK, Calif. -- Jeffrey S. Young, author of "iCon Steve Jobs: The greatest second act in business history," will make his first public appearance in front of the Macintosh community since the book's publication at the Southern California MacFair 2005 (www.macfair.org) on Saturday, November 5 at Cerritos College in Norwalk, California. This is the book that Steve Jobs tried to ban. Prior to the publication of the book, Apple pulled all of the books from the publisher John Wiley & Sons, from its Apple retail stores.

Mr. Young's keynote address is titled: What's Wrong with Steve and Right with Apple. His live presentation will begin at 12:30p on Saturday, November 5 and is open to all general admission attendees of the SoCal MacFair.

Keith Mueller, the show's organizer, notes, "We always have an open invitation for Steve Jobs and Apple to join the Mac Community at the SoCal MacFair. So far they have not accepted our invitation. So, we are bringing the next best thing, Steve Jobs Biographer. We believe everyone has a right to be heard."

The keynote presentation will explain some of the more controversial aspects of the biography, the reaction from Steve Jobs and look into the current state and the future of Apple Computer. Mr. Young will also take questions from the audience.

"So come for the keynote address and stay for the fireworks. It will be the most controversial and talked about Mac presentation of the year," notes Keith Mueller.

The Southern California MacFair also features over 40 participating companies, 18 world class training workshops and over 25 seminar presentations.
