Feeling blue that the release of the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher has been delayed? No more need to lose sleep over it, because Funny or Die is coming to fill that void in your life with a movie all their own.
There are still plenty of little details coming out about the iPhone 5 arriving on T-Mobile next month -- in particular, you'll want to read our Wednesday recap if you're looking to buy a higher-capacity model before you head to a T-Mo retail store on April 12. But we'll kick things off with a neat Flickr gallery that jumps back nearly 17 years, to that fateful night when Steve Jobs came back to then-Apple Computer...
Although late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs touted iCloud as seamless and simple when it was first introduced in 2011, developers have found that's not quite the case on their end, and they're lashing out as a result.
With only four weeks left before the poorly-titled jOBS unauthorized biopic was set to land in theaters, the distributor has now delayed the Ashton Kutcher vehicle. But it's not all bad -- they're ditching that title and ramping up their promotional efforts, but you'll have to read on to find out more.
Sure, the Apple v. Samsung patent trials have been a treasure trove for fans who like seeing prototypes of their favorite gadgets, but what about a look at the guts of one of the earliest iPhone prototypes available?
Despite what you may have read in the press, Apple's influence on the tech world is just as strong as it's ever been. The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 released last month is clearly aimed at the iPad mini, and its Wallet app, let's just say, is inspired by Passbook. Amazon's recent TV ad directly pits its 1900x1200 Kindle Fire HD against the iPad's retina screen (and price). And Blackberry is so tweaked by Apple, at least one of its executives can't even bring himself to speak his competitor's name in public. But no matter how hard they try, no matter how much time Apple gives them to catch up, there's one thing none of them can seem to get right: the art of the product reveal.
Fans of Apple and its products likely remember the first time they saw the iPhone, way back in 2007. Everything seemed new and amazing, and Steve Jobs was still leading the charge. And who can forget the very first public phone call ever made from that iOS device, a funny little prank ordering 4,000 lattes from Starbucks? Apparently, the barista at Starbucks can't forget; people remind her all the time.
Steve Jobs believed in a simple fact: everything around you “was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it. You can influence it. You can build your own things that people can use.” Jobs definitely practiced what he preached. While all the other technology firms were churning out products with all the wow factor of a tumble dryer, Apple set out to change the world with innovative computers and gadgets, again and again and again.
As we’ll discover, Apple products have revolutionized the way we work and play and listen to music. It has transformed entire industries, created new kinds of computing, and done some truly frightening things to bridges. Read on and be inspired.
The long, winding legal saga of Apple v. Samsung took another interesting turn this weekend, with a Reuters report claiming that Steve Jobs was so intent on suing the Korean manufacturer, he disregarded the opinion of Tim Cook just prior to making him CEO of the company. Why did Cook protest? You'll have to keep reading to find out...
