According to forbes.com in the first quarter of 2013 alone the iPad mini made up 55% of the 19.5 million iPads sold. […]
Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple and the man who has the gargantuan task of sustaining the company since the passing away of Steve Jobs, appeared at the D11 conference as the subject of the opening talk. With Apple in such a critical moment in its history, the world of tech writers hung on Cook’s […]
I’ve seen mentioned a few times lately how investors and critics are concerned that Apple hasn’t introduced a new class of product since before Steve Jobs’ passing. Is this a valid concern? Let’s break down the time between past product announcements to compare.
Not that we have not seen blinged out Apple devices in the past. Solid gold iPhone cases. Apple cases studded with diamonds. You name it, you’ve probably got it somewhere online or a gray market stall! When it comes to bling, though, Dr. Dre is no stranger to things. Admittedly, it might all be bling […]
It’s clear that kids love iOS devices. My kids can’t get enough of the iPad. Even if I tell them that I need the iPad for work (I use it for accessing another email account, making to-do lists, appointments, and work charts), they often win in the end and would play their favorite games or […]
Apple CEO Tim Cook doesn’t give a lot of interviews. So it’s kind of a big deal that not one but two interviews with Tim Cook were published in one week. Among the usual Apple hype and secrecy, he let slip a few big hints about what’s to come — and set the record straight […]
The Maps app that came with iOS 6 was such a major debacle, it was quite inevitable that someone’s head was going to roll because of it. That unfortunate head apparently belongs to Richard Williamson, the man who managed the mapping team responsible for the Maps app. Williamson was given the boot by Senior Vice […]
Google’s 20 Percent initiative program is a marvelous employee-driven idea. Under the program, a Google employee can spend 20 percent of his time on personal projects that he deems worthwhile. It is a chance to break out of the monotony of work and flex their creativity. The program has been so successful that some notable […]
Apple has issued a press release talking about the sales of its products over the last weekend. The release focused on the company’s industry-leading iPad, and it announced that about three million iPads were sold in the period covering November 2 to November 5. Apple says that the figure is one hundred percent more than […]

The world is a much less interesting place without Steve Jobs in it. On the anniversary of his passing, here’s how Apple fans, employees, and others all over the world are marking this historic day.
The iPhone 5 announcement is about to happen at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Apple’s favorite venue for media events. Take a look at how Apple has literally put its mark on the building over the years.
Confirming months of speculation and rumors all over the web, Apple today sent out the official invite for its next big media event, to be held on September 12th. It’s iPhone time.
Okay, maybe “never” is a strong word. But it’s a rare thing when I write about a rumor (I don’t even consider it unless it’s a sure thing), because 99% of rumors turn out to be bunk. Like that story about Tim Cook visiting Valve Software last week. You know, that completely non-news piece of […]
By now you’ve probably heard that Apple CEO Tim Cook announced this morning a plan to pay back cash dividends to its shareholders. It’s a big news story for Apple, but I think there’s a bigger one: this is Cook’s first big move that signals a change in Steve Jobs’ way of doing things. Where […]
