Michael Fassbender Steve Jobs

If you are as legendary as the late Steve Jobs, chances are people will adore and admire you long after you have passed on. Ij the case of Steve Jobs, his legacy still lives on through the biggest company on Earth – Apple.

While each and every Apple product is, in essence, a reminder of the brilliance of Steve Jobs, books and films have long since been a way of remembering the greats. And now, another great actor is stepping into the shoes of the one great Steve Jobs.

As we all know, this is not the first time that someone has portrayed Jobs in screen. back in 2013, Ashton Kutcher played the iconic man in the movie ‘Jobs’. While Kutcher’s uncanny resemblance to Jobs was praised, the movie generally received bad reviews – although some people though it was a spot-on representation of the man we all wish we knew.

Taking on the role of Jobs this time around, is Michael Fassbender. Fassbender will play Jobs in the upcoming biopic ‘Steve Jobs.’ (more…)

Published by on May 15th, 2015, No Comments


Every so often, one of tech’s major conglomerates- be it Apple, Microsoft, Sony – produces a simply crazy idea. Apple, for example, introduced the modern computer mouse with the Macintosh II – the mouse itself based off the work of World War II veteran Douglas Engelbart. While seen by some as a ridiculous concept at inception, the humble mouse has since become a staple of desktop computing in modern times.

LG saw fit last year to usher in its own bid to  turn heads with the Tone Pro headset; a novel set of earphones connected to a neck-worn bracelet that accommodates both music and call playback. Now, in 2015, Samsung have fired back with the Galaxy Circle – a daring new concept of a modern bluetooth headset.

Neil Dana basically won the lottery when he ended up being college roomies with Nick Woodman.

Woodman, as some of you may know, is the founder and CEO of the world’s largest action camera company, GoPro.

However, 10 years ago, Woodman wasn’t a camera wielding, billionaire CEO when he attended the University of California in San Diego with his friend, Neil Dana. He was simply a young man with a vision.

Before GoPro was known around the world, and when the company was merely in its development phase, Woodman had made a promise to his roommate. A very lucrative promise, that is.  (more…)
