Daniel Day-Lewis’ performance integrates all these different sides of Lincoln in a really extraordinary way. What was that like directing him? Daniel did something at first that made me sad. He wanted to wait a year. And it was a masterstroke, because he had a year to do research. he had a year to find the character in his own private process. He had a year to discover how Lincoln sounded, and he found the voice. He had Lincoln so embedded in his psyche, in his soul, in his mind, that I would come to work in the morning and Lincoln would sit behind his desk, and we would begin.

In January 2010, the world watched Steve Jobs unveil a product that would change the magazine industry forever. As he showed off his “magical” iPad, TIME flashed across Apple’s big screen, and we went a little wobbly in the knees.
“One of my proudest career moments was seeing Steve Jobs checking out TIME.com during his very first demo of the iPad,” says former digital design director Sean Villafranca. “Yep, I designed that site on a Mac.”
We liked how we looked on that tablet screen so much we now work to produce a special iPad version of our issue each week. Jobs just knew it before we did.
