Could Kevin Rose make a good CEO at Microsoft? 4

Why Kevin Rose Should be the Next CEO of Microsoft

Today, Steve Ballmer announced he will be retiring in 12 months. This was set to a lot of mixed emotion. In this world of high technology, CEOs seem to have a good exit plan – Bill Gates had Ballmer in mind when he retired and Steve Jobs had Tim Cook. Ballmer has no one in mind (that we know of). This could start people worrying about Microsoft’s direction. What Microsoft needs is s thinker. An innovator. Someone that will understand the corporate and consumer ends of technology. That is why I think Kevin Rose should be the next CEO of Microsoft. Why Kevin Rose as CEO of Microsoft? Kevin started early – creating Revision 3, Digg, Pownce and Milk. He has invested in ventures such as Gowalla, Twitter, Foursquare, OMGPOP, Square, Facebook, Chomp and Formspring. Rose took his company Milk and pretty much turned it into Google Ventures where he gets 300 million a year...

Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address – Should Steve Jobs Been a Talking Point? 0

Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address – Should Steve Jobs Been a Talking Point?

So I listened to the State of the Union address last night, which was pretty uneventful. There were many themes that were brought to issue. One of them is not losing jobs to overseas workers and not giving tax breaks to those who do. Yet, President Barack Obama singled out one entrepreneur for his integrity in Steve Jobs. While that was a “Feel good” moment, we have to reflect that your Apple product is not really made in the USA. Do we have a conundrum here? During President Barack Obama’s speech last night, he said: You see, an economy built to last is one where we encourage the talent and ingenuity of every person in this country. That means women should earn equal pay for equal work. It means we should support everyone who’s willing to work; and every risk-taker and entrepreneur who aspires to become the next Steve Jobs....

Goodbye, Steve Jobs. Thanks for all the Fish….

As you probably heard by now, Steve Jobs – Apple CEO – has stepped down from that role. They initiated an executive order and Tim Cook took over as CEO. Steve instantly became Chairman of the Board. “Steve’s extraordinary vision and leadership saved Apple and guided it to its position as the world’s most innovative and valuable technology company,” said Art Levinson, Chairman of Genentech, on behalf of Apple’s Board. “Steve has made countless contributions to Apple’s success, and he has attracted and inspired Apple’s immensely creative employees and world class executive team. In his new role as Chairman of the Board, Steve will continue to serve Apple with his unique insights, creativity and inspiration.” – Official Press Release Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak went from 2 guys in a garage to 2,000 employees. The Apple computer was a major part of my life. I remember it being...

5 Reasons Why People Won’t Want a Tablet 2

5 Reasons Why People Won’t Want a Tablet

The rumor mill for an Apple tablet has been going since June. Companies like OLPC and HTC are also talking about their own single piece device. However, I believe no matter what is said or done, people will end up not buying a tablet. In this article, I will give you 5 reasons why I believe this. This last year we have seen an interesting phenomenon happen. People gathering around the rumor mill to get the jump on a new product that Apple might be coming out with. We have seen rumors in the past not happen – the iPhone mini, the clamshell flip iPhone, camera on the iPod touch – However, this rumor seems to have some tread to it, simply because of some tangible evidence that the community has noticed. Domain names registered, receipts from 3rd party manufacturers received. Even some “friend of Steve Jobs told me so” comments....

After Apple ‘s release of iPhone 3G, people were noticing connectiviy issues. This was due to the Infineon chip within (the chip that governs the 3G). It would ultimately cause the cutout. Apple quietly tried to resolve the matter, but eventually they had to just simply let people know what is going on. Steve Jobs sent out a letter saying “I’m sorry” and announcing how they are going to fix the problem. This is one of many different articles within the Geekazine Quickcast.’
