Gov. Gavin Newsom’s death penalty moratorium lauded and lambasted

As workers dismantled California’s apple-green execution chamber Wednesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s death penalty moratorium was criticized as a slap in the face to voters and praised as a strike for humanity. Newsom’s executive order, blocking execution for 737 prisoners on death row at San Quentin State Prison, came just as efforts to hasten executions were beginning to pick up steam in the aftermath of a 2016 ballot measure approved by voters. There has not been an execution in the state since 20...

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.

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...

Should voting be incentivized?

Netvote founder Jonathan Alexander is considering a rewards system in his blockchain-based API. Incentivizing voters with a tax credit could increase participation. Australia penalizes non-voters, but incentivizing the process might encourage enthusiastic responses. None While social media giants receive a fair amount of blame for disseminating misleading and false information in regards to elections, Twitter tried to course-correct in September with its "Be a Voter" campaign.

Last fall, Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak launched a coding bootcamp called Woz U.  But course materials were of low-quality and many students felt like they did not get enough value out of the bootcamp to justify the $13,200 it cost to enroll, according to a new CBS report. One person told CBS that "lots of times there's just hyperlinks to Microsoft documents, to Wikipedia." Wozniak told Business Insider that he is "not involved in any operations aspects" and that he doesn't "know anything abo...

Not every startup has a cool origin story — and that’s okay

We all know the fantasy brand story. Two friends in a garage dare to dream and create a product that changes the world forever — a legendary scenario popularized the Steves, Jobs and Wozniak, and looked upon as the perfect representation of the startup spirit. But for makers and entrepreneurs, the real backstories common to the crowdfunding and startup worlds are often never that interesting. They’re normally pretty mundane. Even when there’s a legitimate “two ships passing in the night” tale, w...

Destinations out of cell phone range

Over a decade ago , two Steves — Jobs and Wozniak, that is — blew the collective mind of our generation by democratizing the smartphone. Today, we consider it normal to walk around with some of the most advanced technology available tucked into our back pockets, constantly connected to our friends, family, and complete strangers (AKA “followers”).
