Watch the first trailer for new documentary ‘Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine’

We aren’t exactly thrilled with the first trailer for Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs, but thankfully, it isn’t the only Steve Jobs-related movie coming to theaters this year. In fact, Academy Award winner Alex Gibney’s documentary, Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, is coming to select theaters nationwide on September 4th, a full month before Sorkin’s film. More →

This Story Perfectly Illustrates How Insanely Secretive Apple Was Under Steve Jobs

This Story Perfectly Illustrates How Insanely Secretive Apple Was Under Steve Jobs

The Apple of 2015 is a brand new Apple, with a culture that appears to be vastly different from how it was just a few short years ago. We’re not saying it’s any better or worse, but it’s clearly different. Steve Jobs’s Apple appeared from the outside to be all business all the time, and countless accounts we’ve read mirror that sentiment. Today, Apple executives are quite literally dancing in the streets.

It would be hard to argue that either approach is a bad one. Jobs’s Apple grew from the brink of bankruptcy to the top of the world, and Cook’s Apple has continued to grow, with a market cap that now sits at more than $720 billion.

Sometimes we forget how closed and secretive Jobs’s Apple really was though, and now a new story illustrates it perfectly. More →

Steve Jobs Quotes Serve as Valuable Life Lessons

In the world of tech, Steve Jobs was one of the rare people who quite literally had seen and done it all. For starters, Jobs played an instrumental role in the development of three game-changing tech products, the Mac, the iPod and of course the iPhone. These products not only turned Apple into a brand synonymous with innovation, but they fundamentally changed the way that we, as a society, interact with both technology and each other.

Steve Jobs Documentary Director Sees Parallels Between Apple and Scientology

When Alex Gibney’s documentary, Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, premiered earlier this year, Apple employees were displeased with the unflattering portrayal of their former boss. Eddy Cue went so far as to call the film “[an] inaccurate and mean-spirited view” of his friend, but Gibney isn’t finished quite yet. More →

Ex-Apple Employee: Working for ‘Giant Jerk’ Steve Jobs was a Nightmare

Ex-Apple Employee: Working for ‘Giant Jerk’ Steve Jobs was a Nightmare

Earlier this week, a new account emerged from a supposed former Apple employee that revealed what it was like to work for Apple under Steve Jobs. The anonymous worker painted Jobs as a very demanding boss who worked his employees to the bone. Of course, we already knew that.

Now, however, we’re pointed to a new account from a former Apple employee who isn’t anonymous. The disgruntled former project manager suggests that not only was Jobs incredibly demanding, he was also a “giant jerk” who didn’t value his employees and who blamed others for his own mistakes. More →

Former Apple employee reveals one of the worst things about working for Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs was a visionary who literally helped shape the future of the world. He was a driving force in the personal computing revolution, and then he and his company reinvented the smartphone to move computing off of our desks and into our pockets. Like many other successful founders, Jobs was a genius. And like many other geniuses, Jobs was incredibly difficult to work with at times.

Now, a new account from a former Apple employee gives us a fresh perspective on the worst things about working with Apple’s iconic co-founder. More →

Steve Jobs Movie Trailer

Watch: First trailer from Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs movie

Watch: First trailer from Aaron Sorkin’s upcoming Steve Jobs movie

Late on Sunday, the hotly anticipated trailer from the Aaron Sorkin penned Steve Jobs biopic premiered online. While the trailer itself is somewhat subdued, it provides our first glimpse at Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogan who assume the roles of Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, respectively.

Due to Sorkin’s penchant for delivering incredible stories with memorable dialogue (his past works include A Few Good Men, The Social Network, and The West Wing), there’s been a tremendous amount of interest in the second attempt at a Jobs biopic, the first, of course, being the largely panned Ashton Kutcher movie titled Jobs.

Jony Ive Apple

Jony Ive is the new Steve Jobs

Jony Ive is the new Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs was well-known for instilling his own design tastes into Apple’s products. From the skeuomorphic aesthetic that used to define iOS to the company’s general aversion to superfluous buttons, Jobs was much more involved in product design than your average CEO. By all accounts, Jobs was Apple’s supreme taste maker.

Now, three years after Jobs’ passing, it’s apparent that Apple designer Jony Ive is Apple’s new tastemaker. While not an overtly controversial statement in itself, the point was driven home during an excellent Wired piece detailing the secretive development of the Apple Watch.

Retina MacBook Steve Jobs

If you don’t like Apple’s new MacBook, Steve Jobs has a message for you

If you don’t like Apple’s new MacBook, Steve Jobs has a message for you

Though Apple’s recently unveiled 12-inch Retina MacBook has largely elicited positive feedback, not everyone has good things to say about the most recent addition to Apple’s notebook line. Given some of the compromises Apple made in order to get the device so incredibly thin, some of the complaints we’ve seen — it’s underpowered; one USB C port isn’t enough; MagSafe was awesome — aren’t completely out of left field.
