Appletopia: Media Technology and the Religious Imagination of Steve Jobs
by Brett Robinson
Technology has held its transcendent grip on the psyche ever since cars could traverse the American landscape and rockets could send man and woman into the spacial realm of the divine.

In 'Appletopia', media and culture critic Brett Robinson shows how Jobs imagined digital technology in transcendent terms.
