Upcoming Steve Jobs book promises ‘sensational’ new stories

Walter Isaacson’s 2011 Steve Jobs biography left much to be desired. For a person as mercurial, intelligent, inspirational, and influential as Jobs was, many anticipated that the biography would provide a never before seen glimpse into the man responsible for some of the greatest technological innovations of our time. The reality, unfortunately was much different. For the most part, Isaacson’s book rehashed a great deal of what we already knew about Jobs without providing much in the way of new, or at the very least, interesting information.

Now, a new Steve Jobs book slated for release on March 24 promises to deliver where Isaacson’s book fell short. Titled, Becoming Steve Jobs: The Evolution of a Reckless Upstart into a Visionary Leader, the book draws on new interviews with some of the colleagues Jobs trusted most, including Tim Cook, Jony Ive, Eddy Cue, John Lasseter of Pixar, Robert Iger and many more.

Warren Buffett, the world’s fourth richest man, has the diet of a 6 year old

The man who owns nearly 10% of Coca-Cola and is worth nearly $73 billion is, quite literally, the most successful investor in history. Not surprisingly, investors have long looked to Buffett for even the tiniest morsel of investment advice.

Watch CEO Mark Zuckerberg obliterate an Ebola troll on Facebook

No one in the spotlight online is a stranger to Internet trolls. They’re everywhere — just look in the comments section on just about any well-known website that supports commenting, and you’ll find plenty of them. They lurk around every digital corner, waiting for the perfect moment to spring out and annoy us. Brazen trolls don’t even worry about masking their identities, happy to aggravate everyone knowing that they’re sitting safely behind their computer or smartphone.

Of course for most of us, it has become second nature to simply tune out their stupidity. Every once in a while, however, a high-profile Internet personality decides that enough is enough — and that’s exactly what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg decided recently. More →

Just in case you forgot how awesome Bill Gates is…

Bill Gates is an awesome human being. He has played a huge role in changing the world on several occasions — literally, not figuratively — first by helping to make personal computing a reality at Microsoft and amassing a ridiculously huge personal fortune in the process, and then by using that ridiculously huge personal fortune to make the world a better place for people in need across the globe. And despite his long and storied career, he’s not done changing the world. Gates’s continued philanthropic efforts will change millions, even billions of lives for the better moving forward.

Long story short, Bill Gates is the man. More →

Michael Bay talks about his epic CES meltdown

Compared to the average Samsung press conference, which might include singing, dancing, acrobatics, an orchestra and other spectacles, the electronics giant’s CES 2014 press event was pretty boring. In fact, if it wasn’t for director Michael Bay’s spectacular meltdown on stage during the event, there’s no way we would still be talking about it. For those who missed the show on Monday afternoon, Samsung invited Bay out on stage to discuss one of its new giant curved 4K TVs. The acclaimed director began having issues with the teleprompter almost immediately during his appearance, and after a few very awkward moments, he apologized and walked briskly offstage. Now, in a post on his blog, Bay discusses the meltdown for the first time. More →

Bill Gates takes on a new role… as Secret Santa

Reddit’s annual Secret Santa had a surprise participant this year, and it was none other than Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates. Reddit user NY1227 on Wednesday posted what will undoubtedly go down as one of the best Reddit Secret Santa Stories of all time. After 24-year-old Reddit user Rachael received her Secret Santa shipment, she quickly tore it open to discover that it contained a stuffed cow, a book on traveling and a card with a certificate. The cow, it turned out, was symbolic of a donation made to Heifner International on Rachael’s behalf. It didn’t click at first, but then Rachael discovered a photo with the card and certificate. That photo, seen above, showed Bill Gates holding her cow and certificate. More →
