For a long time now, we've heard rumors that say Apple's new TV product will be a conventional HDTV with a 50 to 60-inch display. Other sources insist that it will be a next generation Apple TV set-top box and that competing in the cut-throat HDTV business makes no sense. John Martellaro argues that Apple could ship both.
Ashton Kutcher used his recent appearance at the Teen Choice Awards to offer up three life lessons to the kids in the audience. One of those lessons was what he learned from Steve Jobs making the Jobs biopic that opens on Friday.
Apple has always been known for putting the experience of using their products ahead of technology itself. Customers use Apple products because they want to get something done, not tinker around. That has resulted in aspersions: Apple's Macs are toys. But now we're in the the Post-PC era, and it's time for a change of direction. John Martellaro has an idea.
Nokia has released a new commercial called "Better Photos Every Day," an ad that mocks Apple's claims that more pictures are taken on the iPhone every day by saying better pictures are taken with the Nokia Lumia 925.

When Apple announced its new Mac Pro at WWDC, the first thought of many customers was that they wanted it. Badly. Then reality sunk in; this is a Mac Pro for professionals. It'll be too expensive for the Rest of Us. However, here's why you'll need it anyway. And will love doing it.

Steve Jobs was interested in the phone industry as early as 1984, according to his former boss, John Sculley. In an interview at the Young Turks conclave (reported by YourStory), Mr. Sculley said that even then Mr. Jobs was focused on the importance of saying no more often than you say yes.
Samsung announced its own developer conference for the end of October. The company said it will hold the event at the Westin St. Francis Union Square in San Francisco, though it's not yet clear what the conference will focus on. My question is, why?
You have to hand it to Microsoft. The company isn't tucking its tablet tail between its legs or even bowing out of the tablet market gracefully. The day after Microsoft announced a US$900 million write down on unsold Surface inventory, the company released an iPad attack ad to hawk yet another price cut on the Surface RT.
Apple likes simplicity and uniformity, but it is not so good and board or executive level. The business case for Apple getting women on their board is a strong one. Charlotte Henry explains why.
