How disagreeing with Steve Jobs landed one Apple manager a promotion

How disagreeing with Steve Jobs landed one Apple manager a promotion

BusinessInsider points us to an interesting and little-known story involving Steve Jobs and Donna Dubinsky. Though Dubinsky may not have the same level of name recognition as Jobs, she played an instrumental role at Apple back in the ’80s and later helped spearhead the PDA revolution as both the CEO of Palm and one of the co-founders of Handspring.

In an interesting anecdote from the recently released book, Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World, Adam Grant relays how Dubinsky back in the mid-’80s put her job on the line when she went head to head with Jobs over Apple’s plans to completely revamp its distribution strategy. While one might reflexively assume that disagreeing with Jobs was a surefire way to get belittled, the truth is that Jobs welcomed disagreement and original thought. In fact, many people close to Jobs have said that Jobs would often disagree with people in an underhanded effort to get them to convince him of an idea.

Unravel review: If Pixar made a game, it might look something like this

By on February 8, 2016 at 4:08 PM.

For years, Flower has been the game that I’ve shown friends and family when I want to prove to them that gaming isn’t all about shooting aliens and screaming at strangers over the Internet. Flower is beautiful, tranquil and meaningful, but after all these years, I think a new game has finally taken its place.

That game is Unravel. More →

Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite is still the world’s best eReader, and right now it’s on sale

It can get pretty dizzying to watch how fast the tide turns in the consumer electronics industry. One day you’ve got the best new gadget in the world and the next, it’s outdated and no longer trendy. But somehow, some way, Amazon’s line of Kindle eReaders has managed to remain best-in-class after all this time. And while it’s certainly open to debate, we would argue that among them, the Kindle Paperwhite is the single best dedicated eBook Reader that the world has ever known.

Don’t believe us? See for yourself. The Kindle Paperwhite 6″ eReader with Built-in Light, Wi-Fi (Includes Special Offers) is now on sale for $99.99 shipped, which is $20 off the device’s typical price. More →

The Simpsons/Making a Murderer mashup is nothing short of incredible

Earlier today, Vulture released an expertly crafted mashup that takes the plot of Netflix’s Making a Murderer and applies it to the universe of The Simpsons. The brilliant mashup centers on Homer, cast in the role of Steven Avery, being sentenced to prison for crime he didn’t commit (murdering Mr. Burns), only to be released and then re-arrested for murdering someone else just two years later.

First ever live photo of the Galaxy S7 edge has now leaked

All of the puzzle pieces are quickly falling into place now that the official unveiling of Samsung’s next-generation flagship phones is just a few weeks away. Early Monday morning a leak revealed the first live photo ever of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S7, which is set to debut on February 21st during a press conference in Spain. Unfortunately, that photo only showed the back of the phone so there were still some unanswered questions as far as the handset’s design is concerned.

Now, a newly leaked photo has given us our first ever look at the front of the Galaxy S7 edge, which will be the main Galaxy S7’s partner in crime on store shelves for the next few months. More →

This iPhone 7 concept is Apple fans’ every dream come true

There are realistic iPhone 7 concepts and there are not-so-realistic iPhone 7 concepts. A new concept posted recently on Behance.net by  Ukrainian designer Herman Haidin is a not-so-realistic concept in that it imagines a device that gives Apple fans just about everything they’ve ever dreamed about. It is fun to dream, however, which is why this cool concept is nonetheless worth checking out. More →

X2 lets you stream Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and more to any car stereo

We’re approaching a time when car stereos are “smart” and connected, but many people still have old models with sound systems that offer a tremendous number of limitations. We all know that listening to terrestrial radio in the car simply isn’t an option — who wants to sit through 5 minutes of commercials every 8 minutes just to hear the same 12 songs play on repeat? Sirius XM is actually a fantastic alternative, but is it really worth paying yet another subscription each month when you already pay for a service like Spotify? There are even free versions of services like Pandora and Spotify, so why pay at all?

If you have a car without Bluetooth or an aux-in port, there’s still a simple way to stream music, podcasts and anything else you want: Meet the GOgroove FlexSMART X2 Bluetooth In-Car FM Transmitter. More →
