It's been just over two years since Steve Jobs died, and it's probably not surprising that there's more than one action figure of the Apple icon.
Japan's Legend Toys has released its latest ultra-realistic 12-inch figure of Jobs, but this one is the young brash executive from the late 1970s and early 1980s.
Apple CEO Tim Cook issued a letter to employees remembering Steve Jobs, who died two years ago Saturday
In a note sent to employees and posted by 9to5Mac on Friday, Cook said he hopes that his employees will "reflect on what [Jobs] meant to all of us and to the world," adding that the Apple co-founder "was an amazing human being and left the world a better place."
Cook then turned his attention to Apple's work, according to the letter obtained by 9to5Mac, telling his employees that he believes Jobs "would be proud of … Read more
Tweets can hold a million mysteries. At least, sometimes.
Please, therefore, use your finest interpretive skills to decide the true emotions behind a series of tweets sent by the doyenne of proud houses, Martha Stewart.
She took to her Twitter account Wednesday to bemoan.
As 9to5Mac reported, it began like this: "I just dropped my iPad on the ground and shattered two glass corners. What to do?does one call Apple to come and pick it up or do I take it?"
I believe the answer is: "You take it."… Read more
After waiting decades to see the inside of the long-buried "Steve Jobs Time Capsule," archaeologists who dug it up last week had to wait a few more days to find the treasure they sought -- Steve Jobs' 30-year-old mouse. And find it they did.
In 1983, at the end of the International Design Conference in Aspen, Colo., organizers put a time capsule, known officially as the Aspen Time Tube, into an Apsen field. Many at the conference contributed items, but there's no doubt that the Lisa mouse the late Apple co-founder had used during his presentation at the conference was the bounty everyone remembered and wanted to see once it was dug up. As a result, the Aspen Time Tube became known as the "Steve Jobs Time Capsule." … Read more
The home and garage where Apple began could soon become a protected historical site.
The garage, which belonged to the Jobs family, was Apple's official headquarters before the company moved to a rented office space in Cupertino, Calif. It was the birthplace of the first Apple computer, as well as the Apple II, which became the company's first real hit. … Read more
The tech startup scene is mainly cloistered to a few hubs, namely Silicon Valley and New York, and a few other pockets. But if you haven't heard much about the companies just trying to get off the ground, starting Monday, perhaps you will.
As part of the JOBS Act's implementation, "general solicitation" restrictions will be lifted. That means companies will be able to tweet, shoot videos, pitch, and call potential investors about their fundraising efforts, instead of legally having to keep mum about investment opportunities. So, if you pay even scant attention to startups, expect them … Read more
I understand that Samsung has been trying to discover why on earth people stand in line to buy new iPhones.
To many, it's a mystery.
So please meet Exhibit A (for Apple fanperson). This is Lisa Hoffman. On Friday, she was fifth in line to buy her beloved iPhone 5S at the King St store in Charleston, S.C..
It turned out that fifth might not be good enough. For, as WCSC-TV reports, an Apple store manager came out to suggest that there might not be much supply at all.
This might mean that Hoffman would be disappointed. And … Read more
We can assume that Steve Jobs' 30-year-old mouse is in good condition. But what about the six pack of beer?
In 1983, at the close of the International Design Conference in Aspen, Colo., organizers buried a time capsule, known officially as the Aspen Time Tube. Many attendees contributed various items, like a Rubik's cube, name tags, and even a Moody Blues recording, but because the late Apple co-founder donated the Lisa mouse he'd used during his presentation at the conference, it has become known as the "Steve Jobs Time Capsule."
The idea was to dig it up in 2000, but fate got in the way. Essentially, it was lost. Though organizers recalled approximately where the tube was buried, they didn't know the exact spot, in part because of a significant re-landscaping of the area where it was hidden. And so for 30 years, the Steve Jobs Time Capsule was hidden underground, unavailable to the many historians eager to see what was inside. … Read more
