The issue remains unresolved, but Schmidt took a break from the feud on Thursday night during a promotional event for his new book, How Google Works.

Incredible easter egg reveals Steve Jobs’s most amazing speech hidden in your Mac

Late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was a man of many talents, and among them was his uncanny ability to motivate people. Privately, numerous accounts suggest much of his motivating was brought about by striking fear into employees. Publicly, however, Jobs was an amazing speaker and he proved it time and time again during Apple keynotes and other events.

But Jobs’s most amazing speech was likely the commencement speech he gave in 2005 at Stanford University — and as it turns out, an awesome easter egg hides that very speech in your Mac. More →

Mossberg writes that Jobs understood why Wi-Fi networks needed to remain secure, but believed it would be possible to make shareable, free Wi-Fi from home networks the norm. More →

Tim Cook Vs. Steve Jobs

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

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

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’ 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.
