Steve Jobs gets vindicated one last time

Steve Jobs didn’t get everything right, but it would be hard for anyone at this point to question his decision to keep Flash off of iOS devices. Softpedia notes that YouTube has now moved away from Flash and has made HTML5 its primary technology for delivering videos, which marks a posthumous victory for Apple cofounder Steve Jobs that’s been years in the making.

Here’s why Apple’s upcoming ‘iPad Pro’ will be a failure, according to Steve Jobs

Here’s why Apple’s upcoming ‘iPad Pro’ will be a failure, according to Steve Jobs

Late Apple CEO Steve Jobs will be remembered for a number of things. There is little question that he helped shaped the world as we know it today, first by pushing modern computing forward and then by leading the charge that moved computing off of our desks and laps, and into our pockets. Jobs was never afraid to speak his mind of course, and he would regularly make bold statements that promoted Apple’s products while belittling the competition. Of course, he was also known for his epic 180s, when Apple would go on to release a product that completely went against Jobs’s earlier statements.

Now, it looks like that tradition will live on when Apple releases its hotly anticipated “iPad Pro” sometime later this year. More →

Nearly thirty years ago, when Steve Jobs was let go from Apple, he started a new company: NeXT Computer.

He gave Doug Menuez, a documentary photographer, unlimited access to the company. Thirty years later, Menuez wrote a book about his experience. More →
