Apple Employees Begin to Move Into Space Ship Campus

Apple Park

Episode 1409

Apple employees have begun to move into their circular spaceship campus designed by Steve Jobs and Jony Ive. The campus has open area offices with no closed doors. The idea was to encourage collaboration, but some are complaining about not being able to have privacy or a quiet place to focus on their work. The building is also one floor and you can get anywhere in the building in less than a 1/4 mile.


Looking Back to the Initial iPhone Release

Apple iPhone

Episode 1401

This past week marked the ten year anniversary of the release of the original iPhone. Leo remembers waiting in line for that iPhone. By today's standards it's tiny, but it was so much better than anything else that was out at the time. When Steve Jobs first talked about it in his keynote address, he introduced it as three new products — a widescreen iPod with touch controls, a phone, and an internet communicator. He kept repeating those three things until everyone understood it was one product, the iPhone.

The Steve Jobs Movie Is Good, but Not Biographical

Episode 1227

Leo says that he saw the Steve Jobs movie and he thought for a work of fiction, it wasn't that bad of a film. But if you go to see it expecting to see a biography of the life of Steve Jobs, you'll be sorely disappointed. It's even less accurate thank Sorkin's other biopic, The Social Network. It's a complete work of fiction and should have been called anything but Steve Jobs. The really sad part is that no mention was made of Steve's family life. But having said that, for a work of fiction, it's a pretty compelling work of art.

Steve Jobs' Bio Film Not Very Accurate, Says Apple Co-Founder Wozniak

Episode 947

Aaron Sorkin is doing a biography of Steve Jobs (JOBS) starring Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs. The clip released shows Jobs convincing Steve Wozniak to build a personal computer. Woz says it's woefully inaccurate. If anything, it was the other way around -- Woz had to convince Jobs to create the home PC, and Jobs was only interested in how it can be a business.
