We speculated in this space before that Apple's heavy hand in the creation, design, and rollout of mobile ads in their iAds program would drive businesses away. If the whispering anonymous rumor mill is correct (and when are they ever wrong? HA!), it appears Adidas is lacing up their running shoes and fleeing the control freak nature of Cupertino.
Although it may have seemed like the end of the world when co-founder Steve Jobs left Apple back in 1985, many observers feel that the company wouldn’t be on such strong footing today if it hadn’t gone down the way it did.
Steve Jobs now has the approval needed to tear down his 17,000 square-foot historic mansion, which once belonged to copper baron Daniel Jackling. In its place, he will build a new house--dare we call it, iHouse--that is somewhat modest for a billionaire technology CEO. Costing $8.45 million dollars, the 4,910 square-foot house will feature five bedrooms and plenty of windows and decks.
Despite having a net worth of $6.1 billion thanks to a long string of wildly popular Apple products (and even more to his ties to Disney), CEO Steve Jobs has only come in at 42 on a new list of the 400 wealthiest Americans.
Allegedly Steve Jobs was help up at an airport in Japan because he was trying to bring throwing stars with him back to America. While we were excited to have Steve pulling off some sweet ninja moves at the next Apple event, Apple released a statement calling the whole event, "pure fiction."
In non-ninja-related news, the Boxee Box is available for pre-order and debate it's merits against the Apple TV.
News is currently spreading that Steve Jobs (or someone dressed just like him) was held at Japan’s Kansai International Airport in July on his trip back to the U.S. for having ninja throwing stars in his luggage. Unfortunately Steve's reality distortion field couldn't save him as he reportedly told authorities that it wouldn't make sense to hijack his own plane.
Ah, another day, another to-the-point one-line email response from the desk of Steve Jobs. This time around, Apple's founder and CEO has rallied the full fury of his typing skills to protest against the evil-doers that would dare to protest the new hotness of iTunes 10's icon--you know, the one that just about everyone seems to hate.
Feeling a bit of a techno hangover this morning after waiting up last night for iTunes 10 to finally rear its head? Maybe you’re ready to relive the day’s fun all over again? Apple has you covered, as the full stream from Wednesday’s media event is now online.
