Longtime fans of Apple products may have done some hand-wringing when the CEO mantle passed from Steve Jobs to Tim Cook, but a new profile sheds light on how the current boss is thinking differently about management.
ER star Noah Wyle was the first actor to portray Apple co-founder Steve Jobs on film in the 1999 TV movie The Pirates of Silicon Valley, but he definitely won’t be the last. Ashton Kutcher is going from replacing Charlie Sheen to stepping into the late CEO’s shoes for a new film called Jobs.
March is rapidly winding to a close, but it continues to be an eventful month full of software updates (Retina Display and otherwise) and Apple-centric news galore, which today includes the release of audit results from Apple’s controversial manufacturing at Foxconn, as well as a detailed study on Cupertino’s tactical moves in the smartphone patent wars against Android. So what are you waiting for? Let’s get to reading the news for this Thursday, March 29, 2012.
What’s in a name? For someone like the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, quite a lot. The notorious perfectionist didn’t particularly take to the name “Siri” when Apple acquired the company two years ago -- but accordingly to that company’s co-founder, Jobs never came up with a better one.
We all know Apple’s industrial designs come by way of Jonathan Ive, but who’s designing the devices that Cupertino claims are copycats? At Samsung, it’s someone who seems to take as much pride in his work as Ive does.
Normally, we’d be celebrating the next to the last day of February about this time, but 2012 is one of those pesky leap years, which means you’ll have a full 24 hours more of this month than normal. That could be a good or a bad thing depending on how the rest of the month has gone for you, but in this case it’s just an extra day on the calendar keeping us from a new iPad. And with that, let’s take a look at what’s making news for this Monday, February 27, 2012.
February is winding to a rapid close, which means we should hear something about that rumored iPad 3 event next week -- likely in the form of an invite for the media to attend. After all, the powers that be in Cupertino aren’t going to take this new U.S. Proview lawsuit over the iPad name trademark too seriously, especially when they have a fancy new tablet being queued up, probably as we write this. In the meantime, let’s all head into the weekend by catching up on the rest of the day’s news for this fine Friday, February 24, 2012.
Remember “Antennagate,” the iPhone 4 controversy where then-CEO Steve Jobs reportedly told an inquisitive user that they were “holding it wrong”? Those were good times, but for most of us, Antennagate faded into the history books after Apple handed out free cases. Legally, however, things have only just now come to a close.
Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Apple Rumour Roundup, Mac|Life’s bi-weekly take on the rumors and speculation surrounding Cupertino. This week, we've got our radar set on the iPad 3. With a launch window set for early next month, the talk about the device has really been heating up.

Few would argue that Apple has made a significant impact on the music industry in recent years, and over the weekend the company’s late CEO was honored with a posthumous Special Merit Grammy Award recognizing those accomplishments.
