Jon Stewart Interview

Jon Stewart explains why he quit The Daily Show

It’s not easy to imagine Comedy Central’s The Daily Show without Jon Stewart at the helm. This is undoubtedly why responses have been so muted to the network’s announcement that a relatively unknown contributor Trevor Noah will replace Stewart as the show’s host. Of course, we can recall similar responses when Comedy Central announced that The Daily Show host Craig Kilborn would be replaced by a young comedian named Jon Stewart about 16 years ago.

Since Stewart first announced that he would be retiring as The Daily Show’s host, one question has persisted: why? Now, Stewart finally explained exactly why he’s moving on in a recent interview. More →

‘Becoming Steve Jobs’ review: Pulling back the curtain on Apple’s iconic founder

‘Becoming Steve Jobs’ review: Pulling back the curtain on Apple’s iconic founder

By on March 24, 2015 at 11:35 AM.

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.

Steve Jobs Quotes

Upcoming Steve Jobs book promises ‘sensational’ new stories

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

To call Warren Buffett a successful investor would be a gross understatement. 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…

By on February 13, 2014 at 11:13 AM.

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 →
