Apple CEO Steve Jobs got a little shout-out on Wednesday from none other than the President of the United States, who held the executive up as an incentive for the rest of us to become wealthy and successful.
Mac users have had a long, sometimes frustrating relationship with the MobileMe. Originally launched a decade ago as iTools, the service was touted by Apple as a series of free, internet-based tools to make the lives of OS 9 users just a little bit easier. By 2002, iTools had evolved into .Mac and became a subscription-only service geared towards the needs of OS X users, and thus it remained until 2008 when the service was once again rebranded as MobileMe. The service as we know it today is one that MobileMe subscribers have a hard time admitting that they love, as it very often give us reasons to hate it.
This week, in response to an email from an exasperated user of the service, Steve Jobs promised that MobileMe would be getting an overhaul in 2011. Mr. Jobs, if you're reading this, we'd like to offer up a list of five ways that we here at Mac|Life feel Apple could improve MobileMe.
If you’re still on Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8, Apple has a minor security update now available for you. Meanwhile, CEO Steve Jobs responds to yet another e-mail inquiry, this time on the subject of MobileMe.
For many, the biggest disappointment of iOS 4.2.1 was the reality that the long-awaited AirPlay feature was essentially neutered -- video streaming to an Apple TV was only possible from Apple’s own apps. According to Steve Jobs, that may change next year.
Perhaps as you've been meandering about the internets over the past few days, you have caught a glimpse of, believe it or not, a Steve Jobs action figure. Well, about as soon as the figure made its appearance, it now seems to have made its disappearance. M.I.C. gadget, the seller of the figurine, reportedly received a cease and desist letter from Apple.
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.
