An original Apple I built into a briefcase just sold for nearly $500k

  Most people wouldn’t think too much of a computer crammed into a briefcase — but if it’s one of the few remaining examples of the first computer ever built by Apple? That’s a whole different story. An original Apple I from 1976 — as hand-built by Steve Wozniak — just sold for £371,260 (or roughly $471,000) in a Christie’s Auction. It comes set inside a leather briefcase, complete with a built-in keyboard. So, why the briefcase? Because the Apple I didn’t come with a case of its own. $666 go...

The History of PC Hardware, in Pictures

We all use personal computers, and we all take them for granted in our everyday lives. It’s easy to forget that PCs have only been around for a couple of decades, and initially were nowhere near the powerhouses we have on our desks today. For example, did you know that the first “portable” computer weighed 25 kg (55 lb) and cost close to $20,000? Or that the first laser printer was big enough to fill up most of a room? Or even, that you basically had to build the first Apple computer yourself? T...

What People Don’t Know About Introverts and Extroverts

When you characterize someone as an introvert, you are most likely referring to behaviors that seem quiet and withdrawn. We think of introverts as shy and anti-social, preferring to be alone or with one or two people rather than at a party or in a crowd. Extroverts on the other hand are assumed to be gregarious, loud and in search of the next party. There are many misconceptions, however, regarding these general beliefs about introverts and extroverts. The terms introvert and extrovert wer...

This Goofy Apple Computer Video From 1987 Has Futuristic Gadgets That We're Still Waiting For

Apple Computer was an innovative and nimble company in 1987, so it makes sense that people at the tech giant would imagine a world dominated by Apple ten years into the future. And that’s precisely what it did when it released this goofy video from the perspective of the year 1997.Read more...

AOC Quit Facebook. The Media Bungled the Story.

Photo by bruce mars from Pexels Over the weekend, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced on a podcast that she was quitting Facebook as part of her efforts to cut back on her social media use more generally. This was big news because the 29-year-old AOC is famous for her skilled leverage of these platforms to connect with her constituents and drive the national conversation on issues she cares about. What captured my attention more recently, however, is the apparent disconnect between th...

Avoiding Complexity Makes You More Likely To Be Successful

If you’re an entrepreneur with a singular focus, the last thing you need is complexity. Complexity takes your time and attention away from your goals and can be a source of stress. Nothing creates complexity like quitting your day job and jumping into complex investments just because everyone else is doing it. Before you quit your job and start flipping houses to fund your business, consider the following: Real estate investments can distract you from your business. Most entreprene...

Theranos and the cult of personality in science and tech

Elizabeth Holmes was a chemical engineering student who dropped out of Stanford to found Theranos: a silicon-valley start-up company that, at one point, was valued at US$9 billion. Her plan was to be another Steve Jobs and, for a while, it looked like that would happen. She made the cover of magazines like Forbes, Fortune, and even Glamour, wearing black polo-neck shirts and was touted as being the next big thing. Former President Clinton was a fan. Former Secretary-of-State George Schultz was a...

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak: Jack Dorsey is doing a better job of fighting tech scandals than Mark Zuckerberg

Steve Wozniak said in an interview with Bloomberg that he thinks Jack Dorsey is doing more to counter tech scandals than Mark Zuckerberg. The Apple cofounder said he "lost a lot of respect" for Mark Zuckerberg watching him answer questions about Facebook. As an example of an ethical social media company, Wozniak named geolocation app Foursquare. Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak has told Bloomberg that he thinks Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is doing a better job of handling the techlash than Facebook'...

Apple's cofounder is worried the iPhone maker has fallen behind on folding phones

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak told Bloomberg he's worried that Apple isn't a leader in the newly minted folding phone market. Wozniak said he would like a folding phone himself. Last week a patent filing from Apple showed it's at least thinking about folding phone designs. Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak is keen for Apple to get into the folding phone game. Wozniak founded Apple with Steve Jobs in 1976, and left the company in 1985. Speaking to Bloomberg, he said Apple has fallen behind in inno...

Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Really Wants a Folding iPhone

"Apple has been a leader for quite a long time in a few areas such as touch ID, facial ID, and easy payment with the phone,” Wozniak said in a Bloomberg TV interview. Wozinak was referring to folding phones that competitors Samsung Electronics Co. and Huawei Technologies Co. recently introduced. Apple’s rivals have taken on its high-price strategy as their own, pricing their folding phones at $1,980 and about $2,600, respectively.

'Half a Million Strong' Studies the Intersection of Crowds and Power at Rock Festivals

None As a rock music critic who attended countless concerts and festivals and published in Salon, Entertainment Weekly, and elsewhere between 1981 and 2003, Gina Arnold could have written a behind-the-scenes memoir about the music scene. Instead, she wrote Half a Million Strong: Crowds and Power from Woodstock to Coachella, a bracing study of music festivals, their audiences, and the cultural myths that surround them. The real conditions of the rock festival are not pretty, yet rock festivals s...

Apple could be looking for its next big revenue model

Apple has always been an evolving company. While it never really invented any product categories, it always seemed to make those product categories work better and smarter. It also found a way to make us want them, even when they were more expensive. Today, the WSJ reports, Apple is trying to find its way to a future without the iPhone at the center of its revenue model. This shift happens as Apple reported lower revenue for the first time in years against a backdrop of flagging iPhone demand...

Blockchain and Trust

In his 2008 white paper that first proposed bitcoin, the anonymous Satoshi Nakamoto concluded with: "We have proposed a system for electronic transactions without relying on trust." He was referring to blockchain, the system behind bitcoin cryptocurrency. The circumvention of trust is a great promise, but it's just not true. Yes, bitcoin eliminates certain trusted intermediaries that are inherent in other payment systems like credit cards. But you still have to trust bitcoin -- and everything ab...

Facebook Messenger now lets users delete their sent messages, up to 10 minutes after they've already been sent.

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak was so excited about the iconic '1984' commercial, he offered to pay $400,000 out of pocket to run it during the Super Bowl (AAPL)

Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak recently spoke with Business Insider about the company's famous "1984" commercial.

Wozniak didn't end up having to pay for the ad, which he says is "better than any science fiction trailer." The ad, which introduced the world to Apple's Macintosh personal computer, went on to be widely c...

Run Your Career Based on Facts and Statistics – Not Opinions

--> One of the worst things you can possibly do is run your career based on the opinions of others. Other people are always going to have differing ideas about where you should work, how much you should work, what salary you should make–and various other subjects relating to your employment. Rather than making decisions based on the opinions of others, it is usually much more productive for you to base your decisions on hard, concrete facts, and empirical data. You can often learn a lot more fr...

5 Ways to Build Your Business’s Brand

By Helen Cartright Many, many years ago a brand was defined by a logo, name, slogan or design that distinguished itself from other brands. Today, branding is a lot more complex and more important than ever. Why? Well, with Australia’s boom in small businesses (an increase of 3.1 per cent in 2017) you want your business to stand out among competitors. You can’t do this by simply driving leads. Potential customers are not going to know who you are so how can they trust you? Today, people are doing...

'Garage': A Visually and Intellectually Rich Study of a Seemingly Blank Space

None The garage, at first glance, makes for a mundane symbol. And yet, Americans have imbued this deceptively "blank space" with a great deal of meaning. Even so, they may not fully understand that meaning, or its limitations. Olivia Erlanger and Luis Ortega Govela's book, a work of cultural studies, attempts to analyze the significance of the garage (i.e., the theoretical and material implications of the structure). They argue that Garage, an extension of their essay, Hate Suburbia: The Conspi...

Apply These 4 Techniques to Improve Work Life Balance in your Business

A study by Gallup found that a quarter of Americans dream of becoming entrepreneurs but are holding themselves back. The study attributed this trend to many reasons like fear and financial limitations. Among these reasons, the fear of losing their work-life balance caused 47% of these people to give up their entrepreneurial dream. Another research from NodeSource augments the urgency of this fact, saying that work-life balance is the biggest challenge entrepreneurs face, ranking it even higher ...
