John Sculley is the former CEO of Apple Computers who was hired by Steve Jobs in 1983. He’s best known as the man who ousted Steve Jobs From Apple in 1985. From there up until Jobs’ death, both men never repaired their relationship.
While Sculley at the time was hired for his experience, it appears that he was able to learn a few things from two young and rising tech titans at the time. He told Quarts in a newly released interview:
Earlier today, Oracle co-founder and billionaire Larry Ellison gave a commencement speech at the University of Southern California. At one point during his speech, he told an interesting story about him and the late Steve Jobs.
In 1995, Ellison and Jobs went on a hike in Castle Rock State Park. “If there was something that Steve wanted to talk about, and there always was, we’d go for a walk,” he said.
Some parents ban their children from watching television and limit their access to other forms of technology. Surprisingly enough, even Steve Jobs didn’t allow his own kids to have iPads.
Arguably, the most prominent letter in the alphabet thanks to the iPhone is the lowercase letter “i.”
Many people with and without Apple iPhones have probably pondered what this significant letter means and how it got its place in front of words anyway. The “i” mainly refers to the internet, but it may also mean individual, instruct, inform and inspire.
Banksy, the iconic activist graffiti artist, unveiled his own take on the Syrian migrant crisis with the image of one of the most iconic men in history.
The child who would grow up to become Steve Jobs was born out of wedlock to Joanne Carole Schieble and Abdulfattah Jandali on February 24, 1955. Schieble met Jandali when he was studying in America. The two went to Syria where Schieble became pregnant and soon after left to San Francisco where she would give birth to the baby and put it up for adoption.
Daniel Kottke was once a good friend of Steve Jobs. In college, the two friends experimented with LSD together, but as one of Apple’s earliest employees, Kottke’s friendship with Jobs crumbled when the tech visionary refused to give his friend any stock in the company.
In the early years when they were students at Reed College, Kottke and Jobs became good friends after discovering they both had read “Be Here Now,” a book about psychedelics and spirituality. They hung out and traveled together while regularly experimenting with LSD. Back then, they were just young college kids having fun and discovering who they were.
If you were to take your final breath on this earth what would your last words be? These last words spoken by significant people throughout history have a way of embodying their personas and the contexts or situations in which they passed.
Leonard Nimoy — His final tweet before passing:
David Kottke, an early Apple employee and college friend who used to drop acid with Steve Jobs, once had a thriving friendship with the iconic Apple founder until he accidently revealed a personal secret to the press that Jobs wished would stay in the closet.
Kottke worked in the garage that Apple started in as a technician testing circuit boards. At the time, he was also living with Jobs and his then-girlfriend Chrisann Brennan, the woman who would later become the mother of Job’s first daughter.
“Steve Jobs,” the upcoming biopic on the late Apple co-founder, is causing tension between Apple CEO Tim Cook and screen writer Aaron Sorkin, the movie’s screenplay writer.
Cook recently asserted that filmmakers are being overtly “opportunistic” creating films based on the life of Jobs while appearing on “Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”
Joanna Hoffman, then Apple’s international marketing manager, once told Steve Job’s assistant, “I am going to take a knife and stab it into his heart,” after he changed her marketing projections to “reality distorting” levels. The woman who was not afraid to stand up to Apple Inc.’s co-founder even won an annual award from her colleagues for her fearlessness of Jobs during the same year, 1981, and then again in 1982.
Her colleague Debi Coleman, who joined the Mac team in 1982, recalled:
A talented Colombian artist known for his funny caricatures of obese soccer players created a series of illustrations of celebrities standing next to their younger selves.
Tech entrepreneur and designer David Galbraith from Geneva, Switzerland, tweeted out an iconic photograph of Steve Jobs and the caption: “A Syrian migrants’ child.”
His message: Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, was the son of a Syrian father who moved to the United States in the 1950s. According to the Chicago Tribune, Galbraith sent the tweet following the world outcry toward a photograph of a 3-year-old boy’s body washed ashore on a Turkish beach this week.
