Narcissistic CEOs weaken collaboration and integrity

There are a number of well-known CEOs, such as Uber’s Travis Kalanik and the late Steve Jobs of Apple, who have historically been described as narcissistic. Much of these leaders’ success has been attributed to personal qualities — including clear, bold vision, a huge amount of self-confidence, and an innate determination to win at all costs — that, though they can obviously be interpreted positively, are typically embodied by narcissists.  This personality type also includes less palatable trai...

A pair of rare classic Apple sneakers sold for $9,687.50 at auction this week, reports GQ.

This former Apple CEO says that a lesson from Steve Jobs can help startups navigate through the coronavirus crisis: 'Zoom out, think beyond'

Former Apple CEO John Sculley thinks that once the coronavirus pandemic is over, the US economy will enter a new age of innovation.  Industries like telehealth and remote work are on the cusp of a breakthrough, Sculley observed.

Spotify made its shuffle feature less random so that it would actually feel more random to listeners — here's why

Ben Cohen is a sports reporter for the Wall Street Journal; he writes about the NBA, the Olympics, and other topics that don't involve extraordinarily athletic people. The following is an excerpt from his new book, "THE HOT HAND: The Mystery and Science of Streaks." In it, he describes the puzzling complaint that Spotify used to receive — people said its shuffle feature wasn't shuffling their music. In fact, it turns out that we're terrible at understanding when things are truly random, like w...

A rare fully functional Apple-1 computer has sold for $458,711 at auction this week, according to Boston-based RR Auction.

Mark Zuckerberg has been a 'close friend' to Dropbox CEO Drew Houston for years. Here are 7 other tech exec friendships that have thrived in the competitive world of Silicon Valley.

Silicon Valley might be competitive, but it also appears to be a breeding ground for friendships among its famous execs. It makes sense: the tech world is home to some of the richest people in the world, and life can probably get a little lonely at the top.  Elon Musk, for example, is close friends with Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, as well as Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey.  Larry Ellison gave a eulogy at Steve Jobs' funeral, and he also has a love/hate relationship with c...

The strange love-hate relationship between Bill Gates and Steve Jobs (MSFT, AAPL)

Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates and Apple cofounder Steve Jobs began building their companies right around the same time, and it was a natural catalyst for their rivalry.  While the two founders had periods of civility, at other times, they were at each other's throats.  Jobs insulted Gates' taste and imagination, while Gates once described Jobs as "weirdly flawed as a human being." But the two execs appeared to get along better later in life, and when Jobs died in 2011, Gates said that they "s...

After working with Steve Jobs for more than a decade, Kobe says there's one big lesson he took away from the experience: how to create value for customers.

Losing a Real Estate Marketing Friend and Icon – RIP, Jim Marks

This morning (Europe time), I heard the sad news that my friend and former boss, Jim Marks, passed away. I was aware he was battling health issues the past few years, but had no idea it had gotten this bad. After meeting him during the #rebarcamp over a decade ago, his genuineness, intelligence, and warmth quickly won me over. After moving on from Zillow, I ended up joining him as Director of Marketing following my (nearly) year abroad. If there was one thing he was big on, it was the power of d...

Activist hedge fund Elliott Management's attack on Jack Dorsey is the first shot in brutal new reality for tech founder CEOs who have lost their protective halo (TWTR, BOX)

Public investors have long treated founder CEOs of tech companies with a kind of deference not enjoyed by other heads of companies. But the attempt by an activist shareholder to oust Jack Dorsey from his CEO seat at Twitter may indicate that era is coming to an end, business experts told Business Insider. Dorsey is a Silicon Valley icon and was long thought to be the only person who could make Twitter work, but the company's stock price has been flat since he started and the social network has...
