Steve Jobs steps down as CEO

Its and end of an era and the beginning of a new one. With Steve Jobs stepping down as CEO there seems to be a wave of emotions and rumors circulating the internet. The future of Apple and Steve Jobs’ health are the topics we are seeing. We cannot deny the technology that Apple turn out and the success they have found. I would like to believe that they will continue their success but only time will tell. One thing is true, it is going to be interesting to see what (if any) changes Apple might make and the decisions in the coming years.

I have the highest respect for their product and the overall quality even though I am not a member of the Apple & Mac cults. I am sure there are many overly dedicated Mac users sitting in silence today but you need to understand that this industry is a child of constant change. This is just another step. And also remember that it’s the people that make the company and not just one Man or Woman.

No More WebOS!

From: Lifehacker
A little over a year after buying Palm, HP announced today that it will “discontinue operations for webOS devices, specifically the TouchPad and webOS phones.” It’s a sad day for everyone who was rooting for this mobile platform underdog—and especially webOS device owners.

Although HP’s press release says the company “will continue to explore options to optimize the value of webOS software going forward,” owners of the TouchPad and smartphones like the Pre 3 probably don’t have much to look forward to in terms of future development and support—at least from HP.

HP is also looking at spinning off its personal computing systems group, getting out of the hardware game altogether it seems. There’s not much else known except the brief announcement, but for more commentary and background you can check out Mat Honan’s post on Gizmodo.

Optical Illusion




Two tiles, seemingly different colors from one angle are actually the same color in different lighting. I don’t get it at all. What’s the trickery here? Is it the shadowplay? The lights? The tiles? I don’t know
