Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, is backing a new journalism site called Ozy Media, reports FORTUNE.

The brainchild of Carlos Watson, a veteran television journalist and entrepreneur, Ozy hopes to dish out fare that will stand out in a crowded media environment. Ozy, based in Mountain View, will focus on a handful of well-selected stories a day and will cater what Watson calls the "change generation" -- educated, smart, worldly readers who not only tolerate change but embrace it.

Powell Jobs is an investor and a board member of the new site and may even contribute content. Watson, who is Ozy's founder and editor in chief, says the goal is make a product that people love "in the way Apple fans truly love Apple, or in the way HBO fans have loved HBO."

Others backing the venture include: Larry Sonsini of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati; Ron Conway; Chegg.com CEO Dan Rosensweig; and Google CLO David Drummond.

Hey dip shit... Money doesn't buy you looks unless you think Joan Rivers looks gorgeous! Don't be disrespectful to people that you wouldn't say those same things to their face! Nobody cares that you look like underdeveloped garden gnome! So keeps your nasty comments to yourself you piece of shit!

I agree. This woman's been through an ordeal that no woman must face. Her looks is not of your concern. Last thing you should be doing is disrespecting her cause of her looks. It's clear that you are a superficial and shallow person. This goes to show, with all the money that Steve Jobs makes, he's a normal guy who doesn't use his riches to get model girls who dig for money. I respect him, and I respect Laurene.
