“Earlier this year, it was revealed that French designer Philippe Starck was working with Dutch shipbuilder Feadship on a new yacht for the family of Steve Jobs,” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors. “The yacht had been mentioned in Walter Isaacson’s biography of Jobs as a project he had been working on since 2009, but the ship was not completed before his death last year.”

“Dutch site One More Thing now reports [Google translation] that the ship, christened “Venus”, has officially launched, with Jobs’ widow Laurene Powell Jobs and their three children participating in the event,” Slivka reports. “The aluminum-hulled ship is said to be 70-80 meters in length and features seven 27-inch iMacs lined up in the wheelhouse to help run the controls.”
