Jobs was a terrific showman though, and the little jokes he cracked here and there during Apple's press conferences always helped keep things light. This was actually a very important yet underappreciated element of Apple's strategy during product annou...

Having an iPhone doesn't stop Google handing over your data to the police, according to a New York Times investigation. Apple has long touted itself as more privacy-conscious than competitors like Google, and even opposed the FBI over a case it said would set a "dangerous precedent" for user privacy.

Google Cloud makes some strong moves to differentiate itself from AWS and Microsoft

Google Cloud held its annual customer conference, Google Cloud Next, this week in San Francisco. It had a couple of purposes.
