Word came about today that Rupert Murdoch, the head of News Corp, and Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO, will reportedly reveal a new digital "newspaper" to be named the Daily at the end of the month. Murdoch feels that the joint project has the potential to be a "game changer."
There's that old saying, "a picture's worth a thousand words." With that, Steve Jobs is certainly no exception. We were able to come across a photo shoot of Steve from awhile back, that offers a candid glimpse of the human side of the man whose eyes clearly show he's already thinking of the next "one more thing…"
If there’s one thing that Apple fans love almost as much as their beloved Macs and iOS products, it’s hearing tales of CEO Steve Jobs from years past. The founder of music service CDBaby.com took to his blog to relate one such tale from 2003 which sheds some light on how iTunes embraced independent music.
Late last week, we reported that Apple was discontinuing their Xserve Mac OS X-based server product. Needless to say, lovers of the Apple pro product lamented such a decision, and one of them decided to tell CEO Steve Jobs about it.
If you follow Apple news even on a casual basis, you'll no doubt be familiar with the eloquent off-the-cuff zingers that Steve Jobs routinely levels at his company's competitors. Whether he's riffing on Flash or whittling down fingers, the Apple CEO always has an opinion. Sometimes, Apple's competitors respond to his quips by pouting or spewing forth propaganda in order to offset the damage a verbal barrage from Jobs can render on a company's fortunes. After listening to Jobs talk smack about how terrible touchscreen PCs were at a recent Apple Event, Hewlett Packard has come back with a few points of their own, taking aim at Apple's implementation of a touch interface.
Apple giveth, but sometimes Apple taketh away -- case in point, the iPad’s orientation lock switch, which is being converted back to the mute switch it was originally intended to be with the forthcoming iOS 4.2. But what if we like our current hardware-based orientation lock switch? Tough bananas, says Steve Jobs.
Developers were up in arms on Thursday when Apple posted documentation indicating that Java won’t have a place in future versions of Mac OS X. One such developer pinged CEO Steve Jobs for a response on the matter.
Sometimes Apple and politics seem to go hand in hand. With Apple continuing record profits despite a soured economy, and Steve Jobs becoming practically a household name, leaders are starting to take notice, which includes one in particular. The Commander in Chief.
It's beginning to look like nothing can stop the rise of Apple's star this year. Despite, multiple lawsuits, the iPhone 4's antenna woes, leaked product snafus and the bad press surrounding a few of their suppliers, the company's stock value shot up from $390 to $429 a share after yesterday's revelation of the Cupertino-based company's latest financial report.
It’s almost hard to remember a time when Apple wasn’t making money hand over fist, especially with multiple quarters in a row boasted as their biggest yet. Cupertino didn’t disappoint Wall Street once again, racking up fiscal fourth quarter revenue of $20.34 billion and a net quarterly profit of $4.31 billion.
