A new Steve Jobs movie is coming out this year and while it won’t be the first one, it’s the first that is based on the official Steve Jobs biography. After releasing a short sneak peak at it last month, Universal is now back with an extended trailer, one that tells you what you can expect from it. More →
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.
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 →
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 →
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.
FastCompany directs us to a fascinating and somewhat obscure Apple video which features company co-founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak engaging in a bit of nostalgia as they discuss the early days of Apple and the impact that both the Apple I and the Apple II had on society and the state of computing.
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.
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.
From Amazon to Apple to Tesla to Facebook, most of today’s more innovative tech companies were created by visionary entrepreneurs who successfully challenged the status quo.
Naturally, many of these entrepreneurs have become tech rockstars of sorts, with Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk being a few of the more notable examples.
That being the case, BusinessInsider recently compiled 22 inspirational quotes about success from some of today’s more notable entrepreneurs, including the likes of Bill Gates, Mark Cuban, and many more. More →

Two revelations in particular stuck out to us and we’ll discuss them below. More →
Some of Apple’s highest-ranking executives, including CEO Tim Cook and senior vice president Eddy Cue, among others, have been lavishing praise on “Becoming Steve Jobs” in the run-up to the release today of the new biography of Apple’s co-founder.
That’s because this new take on Jobs’ life and times tries to smooth some of the edges of his personality that Walter Isaacson’s biography, released in the immediate aftermath of Jobs’ death in 2011, put on full display for readers. The resulting portrait is of a man at times prickly, caustic, acerbic – no surprises there – but also immensely likeable when he wanted to be, as well as quick with acts of selflessness and generosity.

The most fascinating tidbit Cult of Mac unearthed details how current Apple CEO Tim Cook once offered part of his liver to Jobs when then Apple co-founder was going through a bout of health struggles.
