Apple too closed and Steve Jobs ego-led rants Netgear CEO

Netgear's CEO and global chairman has heavily criticized Apple for its closed ecosystem, blaming Steve Jobs' ego for certain aspects of company strategy, and suggesting that once the iconic CEO steps down permanently Apple will struggle against Android becoming the de facto standard in consumer electronics. Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, CEO Patrick Lo claimed that Steve Jobs' departure is "probably not far away" and that Apple's closed system is leaving content partners "wary" of the company's control.

What Went on at Macworld This Weekend? [Best of Show Winners Listed]

First, let's talk about what Macworld is briefly - it's a trade show where all sorts of Apple enthusiasts can show off their wares in an almost completely non-fruit-free environment. This used to be where Steve Jobs set up shop to show off Apple's newest wares until 2009 when they began hosting their own events (which we basically always attend.) This convention has been going on since 1985 and is generally accepted as being sort of "past it's prime" but is still going relatively strong. This year's Macworld took place January 25th through the 29th, and dismissed the idea that no Apple keynote means no Macworld FOREVER!

Technology meets the History of Jazz

Technology meets the History of Jazz

One of my favorite cities in the US is New Orleans. I was originally introduced to this city when I had to go there on business some 20 years ago and fell in love with its people, food and culture. I take two weeks each year and designate them as eating holidays and, while one week may take place in Asia or Europe, the other week almost exclusively is in New Orleans. This city is known for its wonderful food scene with great dishes like Oyster Po Boys, red beans and rice, gumbo, jambalaya and the mufaletta and my favorite, a N’awlins crawfish feed.
