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...

Steve Jobs would have been 65 on Monday. Here's how the late Apple CEO saved the company from disaster and set it on the path to a $1 trillion valuation. (AAPL)

When Steve Jobs returned to Apple in 1996, the company was in dire straits.  He quickly staged a boardroom coup, becoming CEO once again and working to turn the company around via new products and an investment from Apple's main rival, Microsoft.  During Jobs' tenure, Apple launched the iMac, iBook, iPod, Mac OS X, iPhone, iPad, and more. These days, the company is worth over $1 trillion. Jobs, who died in 2011 from pancreatic cancer, would have turned 65 on Monday.  Visit Business Insider's h...

TikTok star Charli D'Amelio gave Dunkin' 294 million free video impressions in under 2 months and got her own cold brew tap as a thank-you

Brands are taking over TikTok, making appearances in sponsored posts and organic (unpaid) videos. Because products are showing up in both paid and user-generated videos, it can be difficult for viewers to tell the difference between sponsored content and an unpaid shout-out to a company. One of TikTok's biggest stars, 15-year-old Charli D'Amelio, has posted at least a dozen videos this year about the coffee and donut brand Dunkin', a company she doesn't work with as a sponsor. D'Amelio's recen...

What YouTube pays for 1 million views, the business of Pinterest influencers, and TikTok's invite-only tool for marketers

Hi, and welcome to this week's Influencer Dashboard newsletter! This is Amanda Perelli and I'll be briefing you on what's new in the business of influencers and creators. This week, I looked at how much YouTube pays creators on a single video with 100,000, 1 million, and 150 million views. The big takeaway: the rate that YouTube pays creators per view can vary wildly. For instance, four creators I spoke to told me how much money they made from videos with more than 1 million views (and less tha...

39 photos that show how Steve Jobs saved Apple from disaster and set it on the path to a $1 trillion valuation (AAPL)

This week, Apple officially hit the $1 trillion mark — making it the first American company to do so, ever.  So much of that success is due to the vision of Steve Jobs, the late Apple cofounder. Without him, Apple as we know it today might not even exist. Once upon a time, Apple was a disaster, chewing through CEOs and delivering one bad quarter of financial results after another. In 1996, knowing he had to do something dramatic, then-Apple CEO Gil Amelio negotiated a deal to buy NeXT, the compu...

New Details — And Unanswered Questions — Emerge In Investigation Of The Walking Dead Stuntman's Death

How does a routine fall lead to the death of an experienced stuntman? That's what Georgia police are investigating after the tragic death of stunt performer John Bernecker, who died on July 12 after plummeting headfirst from a 22-foot balcony on the set of The Walking Dead. Capt. John Kennedy has been assigned the case through the Coweta County Sheriff's Office, which has been instructed to "freeze" all provision of investigation materials to the media amid the probe. Local law enforcement ran i...

Apple once built a $7,500 Mac that was delivered by limo — and the first thing Steve Jobs did as CEO was kill it (AAPL)

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the iPhone, leaving the world to wonder if Apple is going to pull something special out of its sleeves with this year's much-anticipated new model.  But back in 1997, right when it looked like the company was about to completely implode, Apple was celebrating another anniversary. It had been twenty years since Apple had officially incorporated, and it marked the occasion with the Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh, or TAM. The TAM, retailing for a whopping $...

The story of how Steve Jobs saved Apple from disaster and led it to rule the world, in 39 photos (AAPL)

Nowadays, Apple is the most valuable company in the world, thanks in huge part to the vision of the company's late cofounder and CEO Steve Jobs. But if you only saw the movie, you got less than half of the story. Once upon a time, Apple was a disaster, chewing through CEOs and delivering one bad quarter of financial results after another. In 1996, knowing he had to do something dramatic, Apple's CEO at the time Gil Amelio negotiated a deal to buy NeXT, the computer company owned by an exiled Job...

20 years ago Apple re-hired Steve Jobs by buying his struggling startup for $400 million

In hindsight, the firing of Steve Jobs from Apple seemed like one of the biggest mistakes of all time. This has been much discussed in the years since Apple rebounded under Jobs to become one of the most innovative, powerful, and profitable tech companies of all time. But the re-hiring of Jobs to Apple often gets a lot less attention. That happened 20 years ago on Tuesday. Apple bought Jobs' 11-year-old company, NeXT Software, for a $400 million. Specifically, Apple agreed to pay about $350 mill...

Here's Who Will Definitely Survive On The Walking Dead

The Walking Dead ended on a crazy cliffhanger last season when Negan beat…someone to death with a baseball bat.That’s not us contorting ourselves to avoid revealing spoilers: The AMC megahit actually didn’t show viewers who died. Showrunner Scott Gimple went so far as to film deaths for all 11 possible characters to short-circuit any drones photographing the set. That’s commitment.[SPOILERS AHEAD] Negan kills Glenn in the comics, but the two narratives seem almost tangentially related at this p...

19 years ago, there was only one way for Apple to save itself: 'Pray' (AAPL)

If you ask the tech industry, Apple is no longer the sure thing it just was. This week alone, Mary Meeker indicated that sales of the iPhone may have peaked, and Amazon could pick up the slack. Before that, a prominent developer questioned whether or not Apple was investing enough in artificial intelligence to avoid the fate of Blackberry. But amid all the hand-wringing, it's useful to remember that this isn't even close to Apple's lowest point.  In June 1997, just about 19 years ago, Wired maga...

Apple Turns 40: Reflecting on Four Decades of History

Apple, co-founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne on April 1, 1976, celebrates its 40th anniversary today. Last night, the company hung up a pirate flag at its One Infinite Loop campus to pay homage to the Jobs-led team that worked on the original Macintosh, which was viewed as rebellious at a time when Apple was focusing on the Lisa.
