After Steve: Apple's ten big post-Jobs moments

It's been a busy, bumpy year for Apple since Steve Jobs passed away last October 5. On the up side, the company won a massive jury award against Samsung for patent infringement, and in April it became arguably the most valuable company in history when its market capitalization passed $600 billion for the first time. At the same time, Apple made some rare U-turns in response to flaps over the EPEAT environmental standard and the mapping software on its newest iPhone.

Here’s a fitting tribute to Steve Jobs on the one-year anniversary of his death: a working iPod Classic that runs in your browser.

Untold Stories About Steve Jobs: Friends and Colleagues Share Their Memories

We know a lot about Steve Jobs, thanks to his willingness in the last years of his life to share stories with his biographer about what drove him to co-found Apple Inc. and reinvent the PC, music players, phones and tablets. But there are plenty of “Steve” stories that you haven’t heard around, and a year after Jobs’ death on Oct. 5 at the age of 56, a few friends and colleagues shared their memories of the technology industry’s most notable  luminary.

A Really nice article.

The Zen of Steve Jobs

Forbes and JESS3 began collaborating in the spring of 2011 on a graphic novel about the life of Steve Jobs, with a focus on his decade spent in "exile" from Apple, the company he founded. The book, written by Forbes reporter Caleb Melby and illustrated by JESS3, evolved into an historically inspired tale spanning 30 years of the relationship between Jobs and one of his great influences, Kobun Chino Otogawa, a Zen Buddhist priest who emigrated to the U.S. from Japan in the late 1960s. Like Jobs, Kobun was an innovator, lacked appreciation for rules and was passionate about art and design. It wasn't long before their teacher-pupil relationship became more of a friendship, one that in this telling was not built to endure Apple's future success. The Zen of Steve Jobs was published by Wiley in January 2012 and has since been translated into fifteen languages.

The “Lost” Steve Jobs Speech from 1983; Foreshadowing Wireless Networking, the iPad, and the App Store

So finally, here is my digitized recording of a “Talk by Steven Jobs” from the 1983 IDCA. The previously unavailable Q&A session starts at about 21:30 of the recording. Note that most of the questions asked by the audience are unintelligible, but can generally be divined by the responses Steve Jobs gives. I digitized the recording using Audacity and applied a simple noise filter to remove the tape hiss and saved it as MPEG-4 (M4A). And finally special thanks to for agreeing to host the download. Enjoy!

Tim Cook tells Apple employees that today’s victory ‘is about values’

Following Apple’s big win in U.S. court today against Samsung, Apple CEO has sent a memo response to Apple corporate employees. The statement is reminiscent of Apple PR head Katie Cotton’s statement from earlier today, but adds some other new, personal touches as Apple’s CEO (who celebrates one year on the job today).

Apple now worth 30 times Dell’s market value

On October 6, 1997, in response to the question of what he’d do if he was in charge of Apple, Dell founder and CEO Michael Dell stood before a crowd of several thousand IT executives and answered flippantly, “What would I do? I’d shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders.” A little more than a month later, on November 10, 1997, new Apple Interim CEO (iCEO) Steve Jobs responded, speaking in front of an image of Michael Dell’s bulls-eye covered face, “We’re coming after you, you’re in our sights.” Read more at

OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion: the Ars Technica review

Apple's traditional desktop computing business has suffered many indignities over the past decade. Once Apple's flagship product line, the Mac first found itself playing second fiddle to the iPod—a mere music player—in the early 2000s. Today, matters are worse; on a graph of Apple's revenues, the Mac now appears as a thin strip of earth while iOS devices are the mountain that sits upon it.

Thanks John!

Installing Mountain Lion: Our complete guide

Just a year after Lion (OS X 10.7), Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) is here. And just like Lion, getting Mountain Lion is as easy as downloading an installer from the Mac App Store—a few clicks (and some patience) is all it takes to install OS X 10.8 over your existing copy of Lion or Snow Leopard. But that doesn’t mean you should make the jump without any preparation, or that there are no important decisions to make along the way.

Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview Now Available To Rent From iTunes Store In U.S.

More than six months after the first sample of it was shared, Robert Cringely’s ”lost” Steve Jobs interview has finally made it to iTunes and is available to rent for $3.99. If you’re unfamiliar with Cringely’s interview, it contains over an hour of footage filmed for the series Triumph of the Nerds. Recorded in 1995, only 10 minutes of the interview was used in the series and the rest of it was presumed lost. That was until the original tape was rediscovered, cleaned up and restored. The interview is wide ranging across a variety of subjects like the famous Blue Box that Steve Wozniak and Jobs built early in their careers, the future of the personal computer and Jobs’ visions for his company NeXT, which he was running at the time.

Despues de mucho tiempo, pero aunque sea ya esta en iTunes.
