Steve Jobs' arrogance was part and parcel of who he was. It has now come back to bite his company on the butt as a judge now forces Apple to suck it up and let the market decide the price of eBooks. This is a black and white case where Apple bullied the publishing world to control eBook pricing.
While it would certainly be easy to look at these two products and envision a huge battle for the hearts and minds of the consumer, neither are likely to capture the imagination of huge numbers of buyers - at least not at this point in time.
LinkedIn definitely is where you go to show your professional self off to potential employees and former colleagues. Here's 5 ways you can create success for yourself on LinkedIn. Because success on LinkedIn is success in life.
Samsung, Apple and a number of other industry heavyweights are poised to make a run for the next "iPod event." As such, I thought it would be interesting to explore how a corporation could go about recreating an iPod, iPhone, or iPad moment with yet another mobile device.
Rose Powell at Startup Smart in Australia reports that Apple has put in an application to trademark the word Startup.
Steve Ballmer essentially announced he is leaving Microsoft and the search for a new CEO has begun in earnest. Unfortunately, Wall Street may be the driving force behind who gets to run the company, but if innovation, raising morale, and making Microsoft feared were criteria, there are 3 people we believe can make it happen.
Hey, we aren't the only ones who are surprisde. But, according to the comScore Media Metrix service, Yahoo had 3 million more unique visitors in July than Google. Apparently this vindicates Marissa Mayer, former Googler and presently CEO of Yahoo. And, frankly, it is mystifying. I mean, for the all the crap Yahoo has gotten these last few years and the notion that Mayer was a little bit of a dilettente, you can't argue with the numbers.
First, let’s start off by saying the vast majority of rumors circulating before the imminent debut of a new Apple iPhone are patently false. Historically, many were started by the powers that be at Cuperino in an effort to more accurately trace corporate leaks.
It started off covering legal issues related to Open Source, notably the SCO-Linux controversies of ten years ago. Now, fearing forced exposure, and possibly in frustration at the tide of recriminations following the exposure of the NSA's surveillance, Pamela Jones, PJ, the former paralegal founder of Groklaw, throws in the towel.
Support for Windows XP is officially ending in April, although it is estimated that about a third of the world will still be using the slowly aging operating system.
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! One of the world's richest men, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, doesn't like another one of the world's richest men, Larry Page of Google. Larry Page is acting evil. Something about Java. Meh.
There are surreal moments in life when you realize that people who don't have a billion dollars are going to eventually figure out that people who do have a billion dollars are just whiny, self-absorbed freaks who will never know the joys of the Jack in the Box Waffle Stack.
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison is not exactly optimistic about the future of Apple without Steve Jobs at the helm.
I use the word “may” advisedly, because like any answer to a problem it depends a great deal on what you want to do with the cars. But at an estimated $139 a month lease, the Smart Electric is far cheaper than the Tesla S to own, easier to park (critical to a commuter car). Plus, you can better afford another car to drive distance, also critical if you own any electric.
If you are going into journalism for the fame, money, sex and drugs, you are an idiot. If you want to get into it because you have low self-esteem, are delusional, and don't know of any other reason to have a degree in communications, or history or some other humanities crap then, you are getting warmer.
Oh, for goodness sake, Microsoft isn't going to die. It will continue to be a giant in the tech industry, but like the rich geezer on Viagra hanging on to a 20 something gold digger, the company isn't going to have much mojo.
Samsung had waged a successful patent battle with Apple that resulted in the US International Trade Commission banning certain Apple products in June of this year.
The Nokia 1020 is really the first breakout phone from any manufacturer that I think could recapture some of the exclusivity Apple's iPhone has lost.
Kepler is Nvidia's lead graphic card technology. Typically, such graphics tech wouldn’t be capable of running on a mobile device - most of which simply lack the necessary electrical horsepower to drive it.
According to the FTC, tech support scams are a problem. Yup. As if you didn't have enough reasons to hate tech support now they are going to get you proactively and not even wait for a call.
I was around when cable first came to market, with the so-called "experts" arguing that no one would be stupid enough to pay for something you could get for free, namely advertising funded TV programs. And here we are decades later, pretty much proving them wrong, because, yes we are stupid enough.
