We begin tonight with the

death of Apple Jobs at the age of death of Apple co-founder Steve

and other health problems for

the past few years. As the

mastermind behind an empire of products that transformed

consumer technology, Steve Jobs

was known as a titan of business and a visionary leaves behind an extraordinary business and a visionary who

legacy. To tech heads the world messiah. We call it the over, Steve Jobs was the

iPad. But the inevitable came

when he lost his battle when he lost his battle with

pancreatic cancer at age 56.

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius and the world

has lost an amazing human being". The iCult will mourn

Steve for a very long time. He

was sort of their technology

brought deity if you will and he

lot brought them a lot of joy and a

lot of great things with the products. Steve said:

Jobs recently stepped down as Apple CEO after bringing the i-World into everyday revolution ising communication i-World into everyday life,

and entertainment. The iPad,

the iPhone, the iPod, the iMac. Apple stores are shrines. It Apple stores are shrines. It is

like the end of an era of

Apple. Pretty shocking because the whole brand of Apple focused on his actual creation. With iTunes he

dragged the music industry

kicking and screaming into the

21st century. Digital down

loads were here to stay. Film and television followed suit.

Even one of his main rivals was

in awe of his talents. It is the best browsing

experience you have ever had. Steve Jobs' skill had. Steve Jobs' skill to

inspire and sell was clearly

unsurpassed. If Steve didn't

like it, it never made it like it, it never made it to

market. Even though he didn't

develop the product, he was the

one that determined whether

they made it to the marketplace. He seemed to know

what would work and what wouldn't work. This week Apple

launched its first major

product without the company's

driving force. The iPhone 4S

didn't set the world on fire.

Can Apple maintain its market

lead? That's the big question

for the future. For now,

though, the passing of a

technology titan has left the

devoted iSad. For more on the legacy of Steve Jobs, we legacy of Steve Jobs, we are

joined by Alex Kidman. He is the editor of the technology web

web site Alex, welcome, thanks for your time. Thanks for having

from me. When Steve Jobs resigned

from Apple a couple of months ago as the head of the company, a 'New York Times' a 'New York Times' columnist Typhoon Nesat said most articles focused on - neck neck focused on the fact he was articles focused on - neck neck

But if you take the long view, behind the iPad and

they are the icing on the cake.

What made the Steve Jobs so impressive? In this What made the Steve Jobs cake

so impressive? In this case,

the cake was the amazing success Apple had, especially

after he resumed his duties at

Apple back in 1996. At that

point, the company was in

severe trouble. Most figured simply it is not going to simply it is not going to last.

At that point, Michael Dell of

del computer said if he ran

Apple, he would sell the stock and refund everyone's money.

From there, Jobs, with a single

vision, cut most of the

programs that Apple were doing

that were losing them lots of

money, focused them back things like industrial design

and personal computing. Stuff

that the average consumer could

understand and use as opposed to stuff that was just

dedicated to speeds and specifications and programming

and so on. He took that to the world.

world. Even before the iPhone

launched, the company was on a

wild ride upwards to

the most valuable company in

the world. We say he is the man

behind these devices, how much

was he indeed entwined around

the invention of these things and the development of these

devices? He was known to be very, very intimately Obviously it would be doing a

disservice to everyone else who

works at Apple, they have talented engineers and

programmers and designs, but the buck stopped with Steve

Jobs. He was known at the last minute to cancel a minute to cancel a design good enough". He was a perfectionist. Everything Apple

has done up to now has borne some of some of his philosophical DNA. He hasn't transformed the world with technology, he has

transforled the way we look at

technology. It not only has technology. It not only has to

perform and do these things but

also look good. We not only

want it, we want to be seen

with it because they look

good. Absolutely. The best and clearest example of that is with

something like the iPod. Apple was in no to bring out a portable music

player but the portable player but the portable music players you could get were

clunky and ordinary and techie

if you liked that but they did

not look fashionable or style

yiesh. The design of the iPod and everything that has come

out of Apple in the past 10

years has born that fi loss fi

of not just an easy to use

system but also one that system but also one that looks quite good. Your US name-sake

gizmodo had an insight into one of the iPhone versions, iPhone

4 just before it was released.

As a result, they had some in

sight into Steve Jobs the man,

or at least the business man.

Can you tell us what happened?

Gizmodo US got hold of an

iPhone 4 that an Apple employee had left in a bar. They

published some photos of it. Where Apple could have immediately sent in the

lawyers, what happened, the now

editor at the time, wrote about it

it today, he got a it today, he got a personal

phone call from Steve Jobs

saying "Look, please can we

have our phone back?". He was

mad at the guy who left it in

the bar but he could see why they

they had done what they had

done. That progressed on but he could understand their passion for his technology. At the same

time, he was a perfectionist,

someone who wanted to be in control

control of his processes

that wasn't it. At that point, the relationship between

two companies was rather

strained as a result. Did the

phone get given back? Eventually, yes. How much of

these devices are shaping so many other facets of the

live our life, particularly in

pop culture, popular culture,

the way we watch movies, the way movies are even made,

listen to music, the way listen to music, the way music

is made, the way we attend

conferences? How is it

reshaping so many facets of our

life? One of the things that

Jobs was known to be

particular about was the

concept of ease of use and personal computing. A lot of those concepts, whether you

want to say that his

competitors adopted them or

borrowed them, or modified and

certainly in some cases

improved them, a lot of those

ideas that Apple championed. In come from some of the design

some cases, they were not the originators of them, looking back

back to the original Macintosh, it had a graphical user interface, Apple didn't that but Steve interface, Apple didn't invent

went "That's where I want the went "That's where I want the

future of this future of this company to be

going". They plunged millions

into a product which into a product which didn't sell spectacularly well, but

this is the way forward for

more people to use computing

rather than the limited subset

of people technically incline

ed. If you can stay with us

while we look at this next

story, we may have a yarn to

you about that. India has launched launched what it says is the

cheapest tablet computer priced

at $35 US, costing a fraction

of other devices on the you

it is hoped the subsidised tablet

the country's poor. Its makers

call it the computer for the

masses. the

of Technology, the Akakash, which means sky, has lofty ambitions to bridge the

technological divide. This is

for all of you who for all of you who are

disempowered, this is for all of you who have no access. This

is for all those who are margin

nalised. This is for all those

who live on the fringes who live on the fringes of society. The Indian Government will buy 100,000 of the tablets which will be given free to

tertiary students. It hopes to

distribute 10 million devices to

to other students over the next

few years. It is a very good device. device. The basic thing is the

low cost. The Akakash supports web browsing but there are

doubts over how it will

perform. Some experts are warning the device might struggle to live struggle to live up to

expectations with its limited memory. But that's not the point according to one

student. It is mainly, student. It is mainly, its objective is to provide it to

the right places. India has the right places. India has a reputation for reputation for creating

affordable products, from the world's cheapest car costing

medicines. The Akakash is set around $2,000, to

to give other tablets a run for

their money. Apple's iPad costs

at least $600 in India, where

hundreds of millions of people

still earn less than a dollar a day. We have been talking about the legacy of Apple's Steve Jobs. That may be one of the legacies right there. We have

been talking about this with

Alex Kidman the editor of How much is

that the future we just saw in the story out the story out of India where there will be these very cheap

devices available to almost everyone or will commercial considerations put the brakes

on that? There will be a mix of that. That particular tablet

is an interesting case because

Government. It is very laudable but obviously it is in a slightly different commercial position. What's been seen in the market is that there have

been a number of competitors to the iPad which have launched at

the same price and struggled

against the iPad. Those that have come in particularly cheaply have sold considerably

better, somewhat regrettably on

HP's behalf when they decided

to dump the touch pad a while

back and cut the price, it sold out rapidly because it was good value. More recently, value. More recently, Amazon

announced the kindle fire which

will go on sale in the States

in mid-November for $200 US.

Clearly the way that the

competition against Apple is

going to focus from now on will

be with lower cost tablets. $200 in the Western world is

not a great amount of money to

spend on a tablet. It is not

quite disposable but it is not

a fortune. Somewhere like

India, that would be a

non-affordable option. That's a very standard trend across very standard trend across tech knowledge, it gets cheaper over

time. What effect do you time. What effect do you think

the death of Steve Jobs will

have on Apple, both internally

and the perception of customers

and investors? Internally,

they obviously had a succession plan in place when Jobs stepped down

down as CEO but stayed on as

chairman he referred to the succession plan as part of his resignation statement. Tim Cook

has been instrumental in the

business. I would say in the

short to medium term, very

little will change. While Jobs

was hands on, with these

corporations and things like was hands on, with these large

product design, you can't make

a product out of air. A lot of

their plans will be set in three to place for probably the next place for probably the

that span afterwards when his

influence is significantly lessened we will see where

Apple is headed for the future.

That's where I think the bigger challenges will Kidman from, thank you for your insights

Coast has been arrested in Bali

after being found with a small

quantity of drugs. For more on

this, let's speak with

Australia Network's correspondent Helen Brown who

is on the phone from Jakarta.

What more do we know about the

teenager and the circumstances surround in his arrest? know he was detained on Tuesday

in one of the most popular

tourist areas in Bali. He was found with a small quantity of drugs drugs that happened to be marijuana. No charges have been

laid but he has been in police

detention since then. He has

been in a police cell in the police station. He was in Bali

with his parents and a new

lawyer has taken on the case

for the family. We haven't heard anything from heard anything from Indonesian for

police yet. We don't

this stage they will say

anything. We are waiting to see

what the lawyer might say when

he comes out of the police

station. From the Australian

side, what has been Australian

officials' reaction? What are

they doing? The Department Foreign Affairs and Trade has officials'


released a statement saying providing assistance. They providing assistance. They have

helped the family find a lawyer. Our understanding is

this lawyer has this lawyer has previously

defended one Australian on defended one Australian on drug

charges. The Government says it

is working to get the boy home

from Bali as soon as possible.

In fact, let's have a listen now to what Kevin Rudd said

earlier about that. I have just

know spoken with our ambassador

in Jakarta. I have indicated to

him that his No.1 priority in

the immediate period ahead is

how we support this young how we support this young boy

and his family and do

everything we can to obtain his

speaking earlier in Sydney. On the phone from Jakarta is Indonesia correspondent Helen Brown. What's the law on

Indonesia in regard to the

detention of minors? Well, the

law it could see him spending

quite some time locked up

unless someone decides there is

a way for him to be a way for him to be released. That will be at the discretion

of either the police, or if it gets

gets to the prosecutor, or even

further to the court. In the

meantime, as you know, he has

been locked up for a couple of

nights now. Police have the right to detain him for 20 days and then another 10 while they

there is a case to make. there is a case to make. The

law allows them to hold him while they do that while they do that . If there

is a case, then they will hand the file to the prosecutor. Then the prosecutor will look

at the information and at

whether or not to proceed. The

prosecutor has 10 days to do

that and then another 15 if

they so request. During that time, the child will time, the child will be detained under Indonesian law.

If it is decided to take the case to trial, to go the young man could be held for

longer. 15 days plus possibly

another 15. As I said, at any

stage in that process,

be decided to release the boy.

It would be up to the different parties involved who are

assessing the case in deciding

whether or not to take it

further. The chances of further. The chances of that,

it is really hard to get a

feeling for that at the moment but he has been found allegedly

possessing drugs and, as you

know, in Indonesia, that's frowned frowned on. The suggestion is

that could make things perhaps

difficult. As I said, it is very hard to know at this

stage. Where he is being held, just to clarify just before we

go, is it a juvenile go, is it a juvenile detention

centre where the boy is

currently being held, or is it

in some other form of prison?

Our understanding is that he

is being held at the police

station itself, at the jail in

the police station. I spoke

briefly to the lawyer before he went into the police station

and he be doing is talking to police

and making sure they follow the

regulations of putting him in a

special jail where minors

should be held so that he should be held so that he is not held in correspondent Helen Brown, thank you for the update. Thank

people in South East Asia.

New Zealand authorities are

working to avert a massive environmental disaster off the

Bay of Plenty. A container ship that ran week is leaking more oil week is leaking more oil than first thought and it is feared

the vessel could break up. This

is what emergency teams have

been desperate to avoid. The been desperate to avoid. The pristine waters blotted by

massive streaks of heavy fuel

oil and the leak is showing no

signs of stopping. The damage

is quite extensive. For that

reason, it is very difficult to

r determine exactly where the

oil is leaking from. An oil

slick stretches 5km stricken vessel 'Rena'. There

is a lot of damage to the ship.

It appears that the leaks may

be coming from pipework as the fuel pipelines are vicinity of the keel of the ship. While authorities say it

is unlikely all 1500 tonnes of fuel oil on board will leak

out, they can't say how big

this environmental disaster could potentially be. The leak was discovered late last night.

By midmorning emergency plans

were activated. Our cameras

caught the battle in Choppers testing oil dispersant

spray in a race against

time. In the last hour, we have

had reports of oil approaching an island. I have dispatched an

aircraft to fly over the surrounding area to determine

where the oil is. At least four

birds have died in the slick

and wildlife experts and wildlife experts are

expecting more. As the oiled

birds are picked up, they will

be taken here. This is

happens is if you wash birds in hard water - water with a lot

of calcium carbonate - it particles of calcium carbonate - it forms particles on their

weather. This is a drying pen. After that, they will be taken

out the back where holding pens

will be set up. But the birds

can't be put in a holding pen

until this has been added until this has been added to ensure the birds don't lose their body heat. union are demanding answers as

to how 'Rena' ran aground in

the first place. Absolute

amazement. In this day and age,

with all the with all the technology there is, this should never, never happen. For now, though,

job is to contain the leaking

oil while salvage experts devise their plan. The President of the Philippines

has visited flooded towns in

the rice-producing provinces close to the capital Manila.

usually a charm of the Thai

capital but at the moment it

sounds like the charm is a

curse, or worse. Indeed. We saw terrible flooding last year

across Thailand, the worst flooding last year for 50

years. This year is even worse.

The current figures as of today

are 244 people dead and three

missing from extensive flooding

in 58 provinces across the country and 25 are still badly

affected. Many people have lost their homes and those who have

been killed have largely been swept away in flash flooding.

The issue now becomes The issue now becomes where that water goes. It will take a

number of weeks to flow out to

the sea and, as it does so, it

is breaking river banks all

over the place and flooding rural communities and now urban

is centres. Where that water goes other flood mitigation other flood mitigation options

being looked at could mean even more problems potentially more problems potentially for

Bangkok if not other areas

around there? Yes, it is a

and it sort of goes to and it sort of goes to the political divide

political divide here that Bangkok is extensively

fortified with flood mitigation measures,

measures, with floodgates and

with flood walls. What that

means, though, is that if the

water can't flow through water can't flow through areas that it would have naturally flowed through in the past, it has has to go somewhere and it is flowing into the outer exterior

areas of the city and the rural

areas further north. The issue

is that if all is that if all those floodgates are closed to protect are closed to protect the

actual CBD, the outskirts actual CBD, the outskirts of Bangkok on the east and west will be affected by Bangkok on the east and the

flooding. But already those flooding. But already those in rural areas are frustration, saying "Open some rural areas are expressing

of the gates" because they're

now in metres of water and they

can't access either their

houses or land

inundated? Absolutely, it is

about 10% of Thailand's rice-growing land that has been inundated. inundated. There will be

extensive damage. The estimate

that's been put on damage so

far is 30 billion baat, so

about $1 billion. that, factories have been

flooded. Only about 100km from

Bangkok, the old city of

Ayutthaya where historic

temples are under water and more are threatened, and many

industrial areas are threatened

and already under water there. As the water obviously flows

further into the urban areas,

then we see further damage. We

have seen damage to rice crops

too as you said in the

Philippines, Cambodia and

Vietnam already so far this wet

season. That will have an forecast both for you there forecast both for you there in Bangkok and Thailand and for

the region? Forecast is for more more rain unfortunately. Light

rain perhaps in Bangkok but we

are still having huge afternoon storms here. We are at the tail

end of the wet season and it

has been a long one. It started

early, way back in March. early, way back in March. I think everyone is just hoping

that the sky starts clearing

and that allows an opportunity

for this water to get away
