The world of quotes is a poorer place without Steve Jobs, who was a quote machine. Nonetheless, plenty of people talked about Apple this year, whether lauding the company’s successes or damning its strategies.
Put it down to Steve Jobs’ astonishing legacy — or poor reading comprehension — but according to a poll of 700 tech company founders, the late Apple CEO is among the most admired “current” tech leaders.
Despite having died five years ago, Jobs scored fourth place in the poll, following Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Amazon’s Jeff Bezos.
Security researchers discovered a new way to hack the Mac’s built-in webcam this week, and the method is undetectable by users.
Apple built a green LED light into every Mac with firmware-level protection that turns on anytime the sensor is tripped by unauthorized access.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has made his annual pilgrimage to Sun Valley, Idaho, to gather with other leaders who run the world’s tech and media empires.
This is the fourth year in a row that Cook has made an appearance at the exclusive conference, which attracts dozens of industry bigwigs like Disney CEO Bob Iger, Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, CBS CEO Leslie Moonves, HP CEO Meg Whitman and Facbook’s Mark Zuckerberg.
Tim Cook’s approval rating among Apple employees continues to be one of the best for CEOs in the U.S. according to a new survey from Glassdoor.
Cook moved up two spots this year in the site’s annual Employee Choice awards, becoming the eighth-highest-rated CEO in terms of approval ratings from anonymous employees. Other notable tech CEOs included in the top 10 include Mark Zuckerberg, Sundar Pichai and Marc Benioff.
For most of us, April Fools’ Day is an abomination. It’s like watching your dad crack terrible jokes at a party. But unlike your dad, some tech companies have perfected the art of the April Fools’ prank and come up with some pretty spectacular ones.
Here are some of the best that have made us LOL today.
Apple has added Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to its growing list of elite tech allies that support that company’s fight against the FBI’s demands to create a back door on iOS to unlock the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone.
During an appearance today at the the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Zuckerberg said that adding backdoor access to devices is neither effective nor the right thing to do.
