Woz explains why early Apple employees vowed to ‘never, ever work for Steve Jobs again’

It’s no secret that Steve Jobs had a mixed reputation during his tenure at Apple, but there are few individuals with a better understanding of the man than Steve Wozniak. In a recent interview with the Milwaukee Business Journal, Wozniak discussed both sides of Jobs — the discerning, thoughtful business man and the demanding, off-putting boss. More →

Tim Cook Vs. Steve Jobs

The single most important thing Steve Jobs told Tim Cook before he passed away

By on July 7, 2014 at 3:30 PM.

The single most important thing Steve Jobs told Tim Cook before he passed away

The single most annoying criticism that people have about Apple CEO Tim Cook is that he isn’t running the company like Steve Jobs would have run it. While it’s undoubtably true that Cook is running Apple much differently than the way Jobs ran it, Cook doesn’t have much of an option — he’s just not a charismatic visionary like Jobs and there’s nothing he can do to change that.

Why Apple needs 5 people to replace Steve Jobs

Why Apple needs 5 people to replace Steve Jobs

Apple CEO Tim Cook seems to get a lot of grief from investors and analysts because he’s not Steve Jobs. However, as a new profile of Cook in The New York Times makes clear, Cook is smart enough to understand that he’s not Steve Jobs and that nobody alive right now really is. However, just because there’s no Steve Jobs that doesn’t mean Apple is devoid of vision or talent and the company under Cook is relying more on teamwork than it did when Jobs was running the show.

Steve Jobs Dr. Dre Video

A sign of things to come: Check out this old video of Steve Jobs talking with Dr. Dre

A sign of things to come: Check out this old video of Steve Jobs talking with Dr. Dre

10 years before he drunkenly celebrated his company’s acquisition by Apple for a reported $3.2 billion, Dr. Dre actually popped up via iChat at one of Apple’s events and congratulated Steve Jobs on the success of both the iPod and the iTunes Store. A video of the event, flagged by 9to5Mac, shows a decidedly more sober Dre telling Jobs that he’s happy that the iPod has been such a success because it means “no more carrying big duffle bags full of CDs.” 9to5Mac notes that Dre was actually instrumental in convincing artists such as Eminem to allow Apple sell their music over the web on the iTunes Store, so it seems that ties between Dre and Cupertino go back much further than just the past few weeks. You can watch the full video of Jobs and Dre chatting below. More →

Steve Jobs may finally get his wish: 2014 could be the year HTML5 starts to kill Flash

Late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs famously went on a tirade against Flash back in 2010 when he said that the video technology was on borrowed time and would soon be replaced by HTML5. While Flash is very much still with us four years later, Rapt Media CEO Erika Trautman thinks that HTML5’s time has finally arrived. More →

Steve Jobs’ death ignited Samsung’s anti-iPhone marketing fire

New evidence from the second U.S. Apple vs Samsung patent lawsuit has revealed that Samsung was somewhat afraid of starting a clear, full-fledged anti-iPhone marketing campaign in 2011 – a move which actually proved to be detrimental to Samsung’s success in the mobile business. However, the death of Steve Jobs provided Samsung the “best opportunity to attack iPhone,” according to a highly confidential email exchange between Samsung execs presented as evidence in the trial and obtained by AppleInsider.

Is Apple really working on a TV? According to Steve Jobs, the answer is ‘no’

Rumors of Apple’s “iTV” — an own-brand high-definition television Apple is supposedly developing to further its assault on the living room — have been swirling for years now. Rumors pop up all the time that Apple is making headway in its quest to launch a new HDTV line. Then, like clockwork, new rumors come along suggesting that there have been delays and the launch of Apple’s hotly anticipated television has been pushed back. Why does the release of Apple’s HDTV keep getting delayed? As it turns out, it may be because the device simply does not exist. More →

What Would Steve Jobs Do

Can we please stop believing Steve Jobs was an infallible god?

Can we please stop believing Steve Jobs was an infallible god?

Back when veteran Apple reporter Yukari Iwatani Kane first started unleashing tirades against Apple’s current management this year, I found myself very unpersuaded by her arguments. And that’s not because I think Apple is beyond criticism, mind you, but more because she seemed to have bought into the “Great Man” fallacy that states Apple’s entire success stems from the vision and drive of its late cofounder Steve Jobs.

BlackBerry CEO tells us what he and Steve Jobs have in common

John Chen has a difficult road ahead of him, something he has acknowledged repeatedly since taking on the role of CEO at BlackBerry. In his latest interview with The New York Times, he went so far as to admit that phones might not be a major part of BlackBerry’s future, depending on where the software takes the company. If BlackBerry can find a profitable way to produce new phones, it will, but otherwise the company plans to focus on embedding its software into other products, forming partnerships and even building new devices altogether.
