• 2010 - The iPad NEWS Made History: /ImagesStub/iPhone4-AntennaStub108w.jpgAll of the built-in apps on iPad were designed from the ground up to take advantage of the large Multi-Touch screen. And they work in any orientation. So you can do things with these apps that you can't do on any other device. "Since Apple's conception," says Josie Cory, publisher/editor of Television International Magazine, "we're still in business because of Steve Jobs' efforts in developing the Apple Computer into a desk-top media giant. Working hand in hand with Internet media distributors like Google and Yahoo, Jobs has given "a new on-line life and style" to the telephone, print, radio, television and the film industries with the new VoIP system.
The Disney, Pixar $7.4 Billion Dollar deal is just one example. WiFi communications, is a boon for TV broadcasting - Watch Disney's ABC grow along with xingtv.com, LookRadio, tviNews, iTunes and iPodcasting.

October 5, 2011 - Steve Jobs' Death -- Effects People Around The World .

• October 6, 2011 - Newspapers around the globe pay homage to U.S. legend Steve Jobs. To many of us who followed the "Mac path" it seems like loosing a friend. He touched so many lives with his innovation and vision that we can't help but ask ourselves, "Will the tech world ever be the same without Jobs?
SteveJobsPhoto-2011300w.jpg••• Much is going to be written about this extraordinary man, so here are just a few highlights in his own words.
APPLE'S EARLY YEARS (the mid-1970s)
••• "Because Woz [Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak] and I started the company based on doing the whole banana, we weren't so good at partnering with people...I think if Apple could have had a little more of that in its DNA, it would have served it extremely well...I don't think Apple learned that until...a few decades later."-- From an appearance at the D5 conference in 2005.
"Who cares about the Apple II?...The Macintosh is the future of Apple, and you're going to start on it now."-- Said to Andy Hertzfeld, then a young engineer, in February 1981 when he was being moved from the Apple II group to the Mac unit. As recounted by Hertzfeld in "Revolution in the Valley: The Insanely Great Story of How the Mac Was Made.
••• You've just seen some pictures of Macintosh. Now I'd like to show you Macintosh in person."
-- From the unveiling of the Macintosh, January 1984.
"It is with considerable pride that I introduce a man who's been like a father to me...STEVE JOBS."-- The Macintosh, at its unveiling.
••• "A computer is the most incredible tool we've ever seen. It can be a writing tool, a communications center, a supercalculator, a planner, a filer and an artistic instrument all in one, just by being given new instructions, or software, to work from. There are no other tools that have the power and versatility of a computer. We have no idea how far it's going to go. Right now, computers make our lives easier. They do work for us in fractions of a second that would take us hours. They increase the quality of life, some of that by simply automating drudgery and some of that by broadening our possibilities. As things progress, they'll be doing more and more for us....
"The most compelling reason for most people to buy a computer for the home will be to link it into a nationwide communications network. We're just in the beginning stages of what will be a truly remarkable breakthrough for most people--as remarkable as the telephone."
"Ultimately it comes down to taste. It comes down to trying to expose yourself to the best things that humans have done and then try to bring those things in to what you're doing. I mean Picasso had a saying, he said good artists copy, great artists steal. And we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas, and I think part of what made the Macintosh great was that the people working on it were musicians and poets and artists and zoologists and historians who also happened to be the best computer scientists in the world...
"The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste...I don't mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don't think of original ideas, and they don't bring much culture into their product...So I guess I am saddened, not by Microsoft's success--I have no problem with their success; they've earned their success for the most part. I have a problem with the fact that they just make really third-rate products."
-- From "Triumph of the Nerds."
2006/ImagesPersonOfTheWeek/74steveJobsPofWeek108w.jpg• INTRODUCING THE IMAC (1998)
"iMac comes from the marriage of the excitement of the Internet with the simplicity of Macintosh."
-- From the 1998 unveiling of the iMac all-in-one device, arguably the most significant computer Apple introduced during the 1990s.
"What is iPod? Well, I happen to have one right here in my pocket. There it is, right there."
-- From the unveiling of the iPod in October 2001.
"Today Apple is going to reinvent the phone, and we are calling it iPhone."
-- From the unveiling of the iPhone in January 2007. And it's more than just a phone, Jobs said: "iPhone is like having your life in your pocket."
Jobs introduces and puts to rest rumors surrounding the much anticipated Apple tablet. "Apps on iPad look and feel like nothing you have ever experienced."
"I love Apple so much."

••• iPhone Antenna Problems? There's A Way Out . . . 2010 "if you could sqeeze your iPhone inside a loop antenna."
••• "If you ever wondered why your iPhone had patchy service even though it showed the signal bars at full strength?" It's the way your holding the handi in the palm of your hand.
••• Apple has admitted that its iPhones have been inflating signal strengths and masking poor reception," but says David MacFarlane of NBS WiTEL®™©, " -- all Apple has to do is surround the telephony device and the beholder, (the individual) -- with a proper/ImagesStub/nbsFamLoopAerialUp108w.jpg WiTEL®™© aerial system, and the beholder becomes the antenna." (see Left photo of NBS -- the Wireless Telephone®™© inventor, and his WiTEL®™© loop antenna).
••• Apple revealed the embarrassing flaw, which it said has been a problem since the original iPhone was launched three years ago, as it was addressing an uproar over dropped signals on its new iPhone 4, which came out last week.
••• • iPhone Needs Code: 887-WiTEL-187. • Your Arm & Legs Act as the antenna!
After just a week of availability, Apple's iPhone 4 is the subject of a class-action lawsuit.
••• Citing the iPhone 4's antenna problems, which requires users to hold the smart phone in a particular way to avoid connection problems, law office Mason LLP has filed the suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. It claims to be speaking on behalf of "hundreds of thousands" of iPhone 4 owners.
••• The focus of the lawsuit is to highlight what the plaintiffs say is a defective antenna. They are requesting that the court require Apple to offer a case at no charge to iPhone 4 buyers. The suit also asks for monetary damages related to the alleged "diminished value of the phone."

The Obama Wireless Telephone®™© Commitment
••• Easily . . . the thrill ride of the Summer will be the Obama Commitment Spectrum Increase. Under the new June - 2010 Obama Wireless Telephone®™© Commitment, plans are now in the works to make over 500 megahertz of spectrum available to the highest bidder -- during the next 10 years.
••• "Mobile phone companies, like AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint praise the comment. However," says NBS WiTEL®™© spokesman, Mark Anderson says, "existing Radio-TV broadcasters, may resist giving up some of their spectrums for WiTEL®™© broadband play assigned telephone numbers."
••• President Obama signed a memorandum Monday that was committed to double the current amount of airwaves available for WiTEL®™© devices over the next 10 years, a move intended to create jobs and boost investment in the mobile phone market.
••• • Q - Where Did The U.S. Get The Radio Specrums In The First Place? . . . asked Radio-TV industry executives.

1955 - Born. Steve Paul Jobs was born on February 24, Los Altos CA; He was raised by adoptive parents Paul and Clara in Mountain View and, later in Los Altos, California. His father was a machinist at Spectra-Physics, and his "early interest in machines was inspired by his father's work" (Notable).
1968 - At age 13 Jobs met, William Hewlett who offered him a summer job at the Hewlett-Packard plant. It was there, when Jobs was 13, that he met the man with whom he would invent "the first ready-made personal computer"--
1970 - going to work for Atari after leaving Reed College, Jobs renewed his friendship with Steve Wozniak. The two designed computer games for Atari and a telephone "blue box", getting much of their impetus from the Homebrew Computer Club. Beginning work in the Job's family garage they managed to make their first "killing" when the Byte Shop in Mountain View bought their first fifty fully assembled computers. On this basis the Apple Corporation was founded, the name based on Job's favorite fruit and the logo.
1972 - Steve meets the 18 year old, college drop-out Steve Wozniak (Lemelson-MIT). At this time though, Jobs helped Wozniak sell his "'blue box' an illegal pocket-size telephone attachment that would allow the user to make free long-distance calls".
1974 - Jobs graduated from high school, and went to Reed College. After the first semester, he dropped out of the school, but stayed around the campus, "taking classes in philosophy and immersing himself in the counterculture" .
1974 - Jobs started working as a video game designer for Atari, Inc., "a pioneer in electronic arcade recreation" . After working for several months and saving his money, he then went to India with a friend in search of spiritual enlightenment.
• •
When he returned, Jobs started attending weekly meetings of Wozniak's Homebrew Computer Club. While Wozniak was "content with the joy of electronics . . . . [Jobs] had his eye on marketability of electronic products and persuaded Wozniak to work with him toward building a personal computer" . So with Jobs' "passionate belief in bringing computer technology to everyone" and Wozniak's "engineering talent" they became a team (Lemelson-MIT).
• •
They "designed the Apple I in Jobs' bedroom and . . . built the prototype in the Jobs' garage" . To finance their company, Jobs sold his Volkswagen van and Wozniak his programmable calculator to raise $1,300. Some weeks later, Jobs "secured the company's first sale: 50 Apple I computers at $666 each" . And Apple Computers Inc., was born.
• •
The Apple I lead to the Apple II. The successful Apple II has been described as "the Volkswagen of computers" . Jobs "created the sleek design for the Apple II" with its plastic casing and featuring the Apple logo, "an apple with a missing bite, playing on the word 'byte,' one of the central units of information in computer languages" (Notable). There were three main factors in the Apple II's success. One reason being it had an open system that allowed for add-ons like modems.
1976 - They marketed it in 1976 at a price of $666. Jobs and Wozniak put together their first computer, called the Apple I. The Apple I was the first single-board computer with built-in video interface, and on-board ROM, which told the machine how to load other programs from an external source. Jobs was marketing the Apple I at hobbyists like members of the Homebrew Computer Club who could now perform their own operations on their personal computers. Jobs and Wozniak managed to earn $774,000 from the sales of the Apple I. The following year, Jobs and Wozniak developed the general purpose Apple II. The design of the Apple II did not depart from Apple I's simplistic and compactness design. The Apple II was the Volkswagon of computers. The Apple II had built-in circuitry allowing it to interface directly to a color video monitor. Jobs encouraged independent programmers to invent applications for Apple II. The result was a library of some 16,000 software programs.
• •
Quickly setting the standard in personal computers, the Apple II had earnings of $139,000,000 within three years, a growth of 700 percent.
1978 - The second was that after 1978 the computer came with a Wozniak engineered disk drive.
1978 - The Wozniak engineered drive was perfected after Jef Raskin joined Apple in January 1978 as the 31st employee. He later hired his former student Bill Atkinson from UCSD to work at Apple, and began the Macintosh project. He was credited with the decision to use a one-button mouse as part of the Apple interface, a departure from the Xerox PARC standard of a three-button mouse. He has since stated that if it were he who had redesign the interface, he would have used a two button mouse.
1979 - Apple's devotees developed the spread sheet program that only ran on Apple Computers. One of those devotees was Jef Raskin. He was the human-computer interface expert who began the Macintosh project for Apple Computer and was the author of The Humane Interface, which in large part builds on his earlier work with the Canon Cat. Raskin received a B.S. Mathematics and B.A. in Philosophy from the State University of New York and an M.S. in Computer Science from the Pennsylvania State University. As an assistant professor at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), he taught classes ranging from computer science to photography.
1982 - Apple goes public. Impressed with that growth, and a trend indicating an additional worth of 35 to 40 percent, the cautious underwriting firm of Hambrecht & Quist in cooperation with Wall Street's prestigious Morgan Stanley, Inc., took Apple public in 1980. The underwriters price of $22 per share went up to $29 the first day of trading, bringing the market value of Apple to $1.2 billion.
1982 - Apple had sales of $583,000,000 up 74 percent from 1981. Its net earnings were $1.06 a share, up 55 percent, and as of December 1982, the company's stock was selling for approximately $30 a share.
1983 - its compound growth rate was over 150% a year. Then IBM muscled into the personal computer business. Two years after introducing its PC, IBM passed Apple in dollar sales of the machines. IBM's dominance had made its operating system an industry standard which was not compatible with Apple's products. Jobs knew in order to compete with IBM, he would have to make the Apple compatible with IBM computers and needed to introduce new computers that could be marketed in the business world which IBM controlled. To help him market these new computers Jobs recruited John Sculley from Pepsi Cola for a position as president at Apple.
1983 - Jobs designed the Macintosh to compete with the PC and, in turn, make Apple's new products a success. In an effort to revitalize the company and prevent it from falling victim to corporate bureaucracy, Jobs launched a campaign to bring back the values and entrepreneurial spirit that characterized Apple in its garage shop days. In developing the Macintosh, he tried to re-create an atmosphere in which the computer industry's highly individualistic, talented, and often eccentric software and hardware designers could flourish. The Macintosh had 128K of memory, twice that of the PC, and the memory could be expandable up to192K. The Mac's 32-bit microprocessor did more things and out performed the PC's 16-bit microprocessor. The larger concern of management concerning the Macintosh was not IBM compatible. This caused an uphill fight for Apple in trying to sell Macintosh to big corporations that where IBM territory. "We have thought about this very hard and it could be easy for us to come out with an IBM look-alike product, and put the Apple logo on it, and sell a lot of Apples. Our earning per share would go up and our stock holders would be happy, but we think that would be the wrong thing to do," says Jobs. The Macintosh held the moments possibility that computer technology would evolve beyond the mindless crunching of numbers for legions of corporate bean-counters. As the print campaign claimed, the Macintosh was the computer "for the rest of us."
1983 - Jobs lured John Scully from Pepsi-Cola to help him compete, saying "If you come to Apple you can change the world" .
1984 - after the failed Apple III and Lisa computers (Apple III had design flaws and Lisa, though user friendly was too expensive), Apple introduced the Macintosh. Jobs designed it to compete with the PC, and on Super Bowl Sunday in 1984, the Macintosh was unveiled with the promise that "1984 would not be like 1984" . The Macintosh, the first truly user-friendly computer, with its mouse, icons, and pop-up menus, was hailed by Jobs as being "not just great . . . but insanely great" (Levy, 27).
1984 - Macintosh was introduced in 1984. The Macintosh was a success, "over 400,000 Macs were sold in the first year of production," but it did not ease any of the tension at Apple.
1984 - the strategy Jobs used to introduce the Macintosh in 1984 was radical. The Macintosh, with all its apparent vulnerability, was a revolutionary act infused with altruism, a technological bomb-throwing. When the machine was introduced to the public on Super Bowl Sunday it was, as Apple Chairman Steve Jobs described it, "kind of like watching the gladiator going into the arena and saying, 'Here it is." [Scott, 1991, p.71] The commercial had a young woman athlete being chased by faceless storm-troopers who raced past hundreds of vacant eyed workers and hurled a sledgehammer into the image of a menacing voice. A transcendent blast. Then a calm, cultivated speaker assured the astonished multitudes that 1984 would not be like 1984. Macintosh had entered the arena. That week, countless newspapers and magazines ran stories with titles like "What were you doing when the '1984' commercial ran?"
• •
Throughout the development of the Macintosh, Jobs had fanned the fervor of the design team by characterizing them as brilliant, committed marhinals. He repeatedly clothed both public and private statements about the machine in revolutionary, sometimes violent imagery, first encouraging his compatriots to see themselves as outlaws, and then target the audience to imagine themselves as revolutionaries. Jobs, like all those who worked on the project, saw the Macintosh as something that would change the world. Jobs described his Macintosh developing team as souls who were "well grounded in the philosophical traditions of the last 100 years and the sociological traditions of the 60's. The Macintosh team pursued their project through grueling hours and against formidable odds. A reporter who interviewed the team wrote: "The machine's development was, in turn, traumatic, joyful, grueling, lunatic, rewarding and ultimately the major event in the lives of almost everyone involved".

Putting Intel Inside, Apple Rolls Out Line of Fast PCs
2006 - January. Intel Chips - Putting Intel Inside, Apple Rolls Out Line of Fast PCs

The launch and record revenue last quarter help lift the computer maker's shares 6.3%;By Terril Yue Jones, Times Staff Writer
January 11, 2006 / SAN FRANCISCO &emdash; Steve Jobs did the talking Tuesday, but it was Paul Otellini many people heard.
Jobs, the chief executive of Apple Computer Inc., was rolling out his company's first computers powered by chips made by Intel Corp., headed by Otellini.
But as Jobs extolled the performance of Apple's new Intel-powered desktops and laptops -- and announced record quarterly revenue -- many analysts watching the presentation at the annual Macworld Conference & Expo here interpreted the alliance as a subtle warning by Intel to its traditional PC partners that they need to innovate more.
A TV commercial promoting the new iMacs and MacBook Pro says Intel processors have been "freed" from being "trapped inside PCs -- dull little boxes -- performing dull little tasks."
The message should be a "kick in the pants" to Dell Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co. and other PC makers that use Intel chips, said Tim Bajarin, president of the Silicon Valley consultancy Creative Strategies.
"I think Intel is trying to spur their existing PC customers to be more creative," he said.
Intel in recent years has aggressively developed and marketed chips to handle audio and video more efficiently. Like many tech companies, Intel wants to expand its influence to the living room and control how people watch TV, listen to music and share photos in the Internet era.
Problem is, computer makers -- and most consumer electronics companies -- have had little success convincing customers that their vision of a totally connected home is worth the time, money and hassle.
Apple, on the other hand, is known for developing software that allows users to easily make slick slide shows and home movies, said Roger Kay, president of research firm Endpoint Technologies. Although Apple has just more than 4% of the U.S. computer market, its sales are growing fast with the help of its wildly popular iPod music players.
"If you're Intel and you're trying to get the industry to do more digital media, what better prod could you have than Apple?" Kay said. "Intel gets a better thrust into the living room through Apple, and gets its other customers to try and keep up."
The commercial was produced by Apple and did not require Intel's approval, said Deborah Conrad, an Intel vice president of sales and marketing who is in charge of the chip maker's Apple business. "It's tongue-in-cheek, it's a cool ad," Conrad said. "It doesn't mean we agree that all our customers are making boring little boxes."
Apple's new computers use Intel's Core Duo processor announced last week that has two computing engines on a single microprocessor. The machines are up to five times faster than the ones they replace. "These things are screamers," Jobs said.
Apple did not incorporate any of the functions Intel unveiled last week as part of its Viiv package of applications, such as the ability to access TV and movie content online with network, studio and other partners.
Viiv PCs are designed to boost the market for multimedia computers using Microsoft Corp.'s Windows operating system. The "Viiv strategy is much more important to Intel growing new business than it is to Apple," said Nathan Brookwood, principal analyst at semiconductor consultancy Insight64.
Apple said last year that it would replace IBM Corp. as its primary chip supplier and that its first computer with an Intel processor would arrive by June of this year.
Also Tuesday, Apple said it had record revenue of $5.7 billion last quarter, boosted by sales of a record 14 million iPods. That disclosure and the early unveilings of the Intel-based machines helped lift shares of the Cupertino, Calif.-based company $4.81, or 6.3%, to a record $80.86 during regular trading Tuesday, and an additional $1.03 after hours.

News from Apple Media - Letters From Steve Jobs

2009 - January 5, Letter by Steve Jobs.
Dear Apple Community
•• For the first time in a decade, I'm getting to spend the holiday season with my family, rather than intensely preparing for a Macworld keynote.
••Unfortunately, my decision to have Phil deliver the Macworld keynote set off another flurry of rumors about my health, with some even publishing stories of me on my deathbed.
••I've decided to share something very personal with the Apple community so that we can all relax and enjoy the show tomorrow.
••As many of you know, I have been losing weight throughout 2008. The reason has been a mystery to me and my doctors. A few weeks ago, I decided that getting to the root cause of this and reversing it needed to become my #1 priority.
••Fortunately, after further testing, my doctors think they have found the cause&emdash;a hormone imbalance that has been "robbing" me of the proteins my body needs to be healthy. Sophisticated blood tests have confirmed this diagnosis.
••The remedy for this nutritional problem is relatively simple and straightforward, and I've already begun treatment. But, just like I didn't lose this much weight and body mass in a week or a month, my doctors expect it will take me until late this Spring to regain it. I will continue as Apple's CEO during my recovery.
••I have given more than my all to Apple for the past 11 years now. I will be the first one to step up and tell our Board of Directors if I can no longer continue to fulfill my duties as Apple's CEO. I hope the Apple community will support me in my recovery and know that I will always put what is best for Apple first.
••So now I've said more than I wanted to say, and all that I am going to say, about this. -- Steve

2009 - January 5. Statement by Apple's Board of Directors
•• It is widely recognized both inside and outside of Apple that Steve Jobs is one of the most talented and effective CEOs in the world.
As we have said before, if there ever comes a day when Steve wants to retire or for other reasons cannot continue to fulfill his duties as Apple's CEO, you will know it.
••Apple is very lucky to have Steve as its leader and CEO, and he deserves our complete and unwavering support during his recuperation. He most certainly has that from Apple and its Board.
2009 - January 14. Apple Media Advisory / Apple CEO Steve Jobs today sent the following email to all Apple employees:
•• I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone else at Apple as well. In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.
••In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health, and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the end of June.
••I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple's day to day operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully supports this plan.
••I look forward to seeing all of you this summer. -- Steve

• • The name Pixar, first came to the attention of Josie Cory, the new publisher/owner of Television International Magazine, in 1987. It was a press release announcing the newly formed animation organization created by Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple.
• • Sometimes, during a dinner time chat, she'll share the two reasons for choosing the Apple as the computer to publish TVI. The first, was because Troy Cory's Vine Street Video Center stage facilities, had been using them for years to edit and transmit short televisiion photos and music over a telephone line, and the second reason, because of a joke. She says, when her husband, (Troy Cory), told me the one about, "it was Eve who invented the Apple, because she took the first byte -- to this day, I have never stopped using the Apple to publish the magazine, tvinews, and LookRadio's VRA TelePlay DVDs."
• • Quark Xpress was the application used to format its pages. "The name Macintosh computer, was named by the late Jef Raskin, (died, February 26, 2005. Jef stated in April, 1996 that he named the succulent McIntosh, after his, "favorite kind of eatin' apple". He said he changed the spelling of the name "to avoid potential conflict with McIntosh, the audio equipment manufacturer."

Raskin joined the fledgling Apple as employee No. 31 in 1978 after graduating from the State University of New York at Stony Brook with degrees in math and philosophy and earning a master's degree in computer science at Penn State University. At Apple, he first worked as manager of publications and later became head of the team developing the Macintosh computer.
