    "Cars 2" runs out of gas long before it runs out of running time. This sequel qualifies as the rare Pixar misfire. Unlike the wit and warmth of such animated favorites as the "Toy Story" series and "Wall-E," "Cars 2" seems cold and shrill. One reason why...

    Steve Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson discusses the late, iconic Apple leader
    Few nonfiction writers think bigger than Walter Isaacson, who has taken on subjects like Henry Kissinger, Benjamin Franklin and Albert Einstein. But when Apple founder Steve Jobs invited him in 2004 to write a complete and frank biography, Isaacson held...
  • These are a few of their favorite films
