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

Why Andrew Chung Is So Optimistic About ClimateTech In His 1955 Capital Pursuits

2015 was a big year for this respected venture capitalist. Khosla Ventures was a proud part of the VC career of Andrew Chung, but he ultimately knew that it was time to begin his own VC firm, which Chung did in the financially demanding city of San Francisco, California. Chung chose a unique name for his VC firm, which aimed to pay tribute to some of technology’s great influential minds. 1955 Capital, therefore, is a powerful name. It was chosen to honor the likes of Eric Schmidt, Bill Gates ...

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...

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...

Tim Kobe, founder and CEO of design firm Eight Inc., has been working with Apple on its retail experience since 1999. 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.

5 Tips For a Dynamic and Fulfilled Life

As the economy changes, one of the most important perspectives you can adopt is staying true to who you are.

Elon Musk says college is 'basically for fun' but 'not for learning,' and that a degree isn't 'evidence of exceptional ability' (TSLA)

Elon Musk said college is "not for learning" and that you can basically learn anything you want to for free. During a Q&A at the Satellite 2020 conference on Monday, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO said he wants to make sure Tesla recruitment doesn't require a college degree, and that "ideally, you dropped out and did something." He pointed to Microsoft's Bill Gates, Apple's Steve Jobs, and Oracle's Larry Ellison as examples of people who dropped out of college and ended up being highly successful.  ...

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...
