SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 5, 2012

We've arrived at another Friday evening, which means that the weekend lies ahead. Today, as many of you probably already know, was the one-year anniversary of the passing of Steve Jobs. Apple paid tribute to Jobs in a new video released today, and it was announced that three modified MacBook Pros will be auctioned off in memory of Jobs. On the lighter side of things, Lenovo is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the ThinkPad with a look back through time, and Samsung's profits for Q3 2013 managed to break company records (not an easy thing to do, considering how popular Samsung is).

How Will Bill Gates Be Remembered?

How Will Bill Gates Be Remembered?

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was a special person. He was able to combine some of the finer elements of the industry into products that made users worldwide drool. And along the way, he established himself as one of the most important figures in the technology industry. To say his contributions to the industry were significant would perhaps be too simple a summation of such an important figure.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 3, 2012

Welcome to Wednesday evening, everyone. Today, T-Mobile and MetroPCS announced that their rumored merger was indeed real, and not long after, T-Mobile CEO John Legere released a new video explaining the deal. We heard more about the iPad Mini today, with the Wall Street Journal claiming that it's already in production and comes with a 7.85-inch screen, while accessory maker Cygnett released cases for the iPad Mini a little bit early. Speaking of iPad, we found out today that Apple ships a whopping 188,000 iPads per day, which is just plain absurd.

Steve Jobs interview from 1983 uncovered with spot-on predictions for the future

Steve Jobs interview from 1983 uncovered with spot-on predictions for the future

From a casette tape recovered this week by Marcel Brown of Steve Jobs speaking at the 1983 International Design Conference in Aspen comes an interview that reveals several baffling predictions from the Apple co-founder. It was John Celuch of Inland Design who possessed this tape up until just recently, each of the attendees of the speech receiving said speech (and Q and A) on the tape you see here - rather lovely, isn't it? This tape has the number 20 on it, this leading us to believe that there may have been a limited amount of these tapes created - but it's moot now as the internet spreads the love in a wide way.

This Friday is the one-year anniversary of the passing of Steve Jobs, and one of the most moving - and interesting - tributes remains the speech given by Jonathan Ive on the 19th of October, 2011, at a private Apple event. This private ceremony displayed giant images of Jobs with his own Mac computer and smiles abound, while Ive reminisced on not just the way his late associate worked, but how he thought and acted as well. It's in this video that you'll get another taste of Jobs' father's "back of the cabinet" philosophy as well.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 2, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening, everyone. The afternoon brought us a number of interesting stories, including brand new shots of what appears to be the long-rumored iPad Mini. Speaking of devices with the word "Mini" in their name, some are thinking that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S III Mini next week after German press invitations suggested something along those lines. iOS 6 adoption has hit 60% of Apple's user base, and we found out today that Motorola has dropped its ITC lawsuit against Apple, but we don't why just yet.

Steve Jobs anecdotes continue with Scuff Marks breakdown

Steve Jobs anecdotes continue with Scuff Marks breakdown

As Steve Jobs' legacy continues through the products he had a hand in, so too does his memory stick around through a vast collection of stories worth retelling, like the one being told this week about his first appearance at an Apple Store in Palo Alto. This story comes from an Apple and NeXT-related collection being released imminently in Forbes by Connie Guglielmo who, in some cases, experienced Jobs-related events she tells about in person. The story about the Scuff Marks bears retelling as it's little more than black marks on a floor that spur the wrath of Jobs back in 2004.
