In his letter, Steve Jobs stated:

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:
I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.
I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.
As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.
I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.
I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.
Steve

In May 1985, Jobs was fired from Apple by the company’s chief executive officer (CEO) John Sculley and the board. Jobs rejoined Apple in 1997, after Apple acquired NeXT, a company Jobs had founded after leaving Apple.

Apple has been on the forefront of innovation over the past decade with several generations of the iPod, iMac and the iPhone among others. What does his resignation mean for Apple? Time will tell…

The Brief History of the Mobile Phone

Mobile technology has gone a long way from its humble bulky beginnings to its sleek and stylish present. It has also evolved from being a means of talking to someone, to an all-around communications device. Looking through the years, one can really see the development of the cellphone.

It was during the swinging 70’s that the first portable handset was invented. Though wireless devices that were used to tap into telephone networks were already around in 1946, it was only in 1973 that a portable cellular phone was officially made. Dr. Martin Cooper was the first person to make a call with it. The pager was also made during this decade. Pagers added another option for communication, allowing for messages to be delivered.

In 1983, the DynaTAC 8000X came out, provided my Motorola, and it began the series of commercially available mobile phones. It was also during the 80’s that the idea of mobile communication started to get into the average citizen’s brain and settled itself there. Where using the phone outside the home was once impossible, the notion of mobile communication was starting to become a reality for most.

A big transformation for the cellphone happened in the 1990’s. Apple, IBM and Nokia all jumped on the opportunity to make a mobile that did more and was more to the consumers. The PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) was introduced by Apple in 1992 and a year later, the Newton MessagePad was launched. This took handheld technology just that much further, introducing more applications and more uses for one device. Not to be outdone, IBM launches Simon, the first publicly available smartphone. Nokia did its own thing and came up with the Nokia 9000, the first QWERTY keyboard in 1996 and in 1999 integrated the wireless access protocol sites into the mobile phone with the Nokia 7110. This paved the way for the advancement of the wireless internet we enjoy today. The first GPS-integrated phone came out 1999 as well and the first MP3 phone was launched alongside it.

During the turn of the century, more and more companies entered the race to make the most sophisticated and multi-tasking phone. The camera phone made its debut in 2000 with Sony Ericsson, the first blackberry was launched in 2002 and in 2007 the iPhone came out. The iPhone started the multi-function fad by combining an mp3 player, wireless internet communicator and a mobile phone in one. Google was not far behind and released the first Android phone in 2008. A year later, the explosion of the app stores commenced and has not slowed down yet.

What’s next for the cellphone? Well, the 2010’s are showcasing its potential churning out one smartphone after another. Windows has its Windows Phone 7 and the Android has been steadily passing the iPhone in market shares. It is predicted at by the end of 2011, there would be 6 billion mobile subscribers out there, all enjoying wireless internet and numerous apps. Mobile operating systems are now all the rage, some even replacing the computer in its capabilities. The iPad has begun the fad of tablets that are portable mini-computers. The merging of the phone and tablet has also commenced as well. In no time at all, mobile phones would be more technologically capable than some super computers.

In only took around 30 years for communication to change all over the world. What was once cutting-edge and experimental is now outdated. Just in the past 10 years, mobile technology has been advancing at an even greater speed. The only limit to the cellphone industry is the imagination of its creators.

Match Made in Heaven

Small business owners have special considerations when looking for a company to host their website. Is the web host dependable? Are their prices affordable?

Match Made in Heaven

Small business owners have special considerations when looking for a company to host their website. Is the web host dependable? Are their prices affordable? Do they offer sufficient support for small businesses? Can they reliably support a shopping cart or other tools needed to communicate with clients? Perhaps most importantly, are they adaptable enough to handle changing business needs and the growth of the business? What if the need develops for multiple domain web hosting?

There are many web hosting companies offering services to small businesses, but each web host is unique in not only the services but the level of service provided to the business owner. Since most small businesses do not have in-house web designers or computer programmers, it is important to look at what services a potential web host can offer and how easy they can make it for a small business owner who may not be internet savvy. Let’s take a look at a few of the more popular web hosting companies and how they can help a small business owner.

iPage

Small business owners will find iPage offers affordable hosting with a variety of services. They offer two different drag and drop website builders that make it easy to design your own site. Clients are allowed unlimited domains, unlimited bandwidth and unlimited disk space. Their service includes a free online store with a choice of shopping carts to best suit your business needs.

FatCow

FatCow targets inexperienced webmasters with an inexpensive plan that provides unlimited bandwidth, traffic and domain names as well as courteous customer service. They offer a single drag and drop site builder with a shopping cart available. While they may offer fewer options, their goal is to provide the simplest tools for new users.

Just Host

Just Host offers an easy-to-use interface through the popular cPanel control panel and an affordable price on its hosting service. They include ad credits for Google, Yahoo and MySpace to get you started when you sign up. They offer a 100% money back guarantee on the unused part of your hosting contract should you decide to drop the service. They also promise customer service calls will be answered quickly by representatives who speak English and will have no problem understanding you or speaking so that you can understand them.

InMotion

InMotion Hosting strives to offer reliable hosting to businesses that are growing, working to adapt to those businesses’ changing needs. While their basic service limits business owners to only two domain names, they guarantee 99.9% uptime and a service plan designed specifically for business websites, built on business class hardware up to 50% faster than other providers. They also provide data back-up for all clients to protect your website from data loss.

BlueHost

Business owners needing instant set-up will find BlueHost ready and able to assist them. They offer the intuitive cPanel control panel as well as many professional level tools for building a site. Their easy to use site builder includes many templates that make designing a site a snap! But BlueHost’s biggest asset is their virtual private server (VPS) protection that allows each site to run as if on its own dedicated server should any problems affect other sites on the shared server that might slow down the server’s overall performance. With their proprietary VPS protection, your share of server performance is guaranteed.

HostGator

HostGator understands that small businesses need a hosting plan that addresses the complex needs that running a small company entails. HostGator has the largest number of customers of any web hosting site with over 700,000 domain owners running over 5 million websites. Along with unlimited disk space and bandwidth, HostGator also provides scripts for forums, photo galleries and membership sign-up that can be beneficial to many businesses.

Since a small business will not be able to afford the time, maintenance and cost required to run a dedicated server, shared hosting is an attractive option. But reliability and dependability of the hosting service is paramount, as is affordability and the support structure they provide. Consideration must also be given to future needs of the company and whether the web host can provide for those needs. It is an important decision that can affect success or failure of the business.

Google acquires Motorola for $12.5bn

Google is known for its acquisitions, including the $1.65bn acquisition of Youtube in 2006. However, this time they have completely outdone themselves with their acquisition of Motorola Mobility. In their investor press release, the company stated that they have entered into an agreement to acquire Motorola at $40 per share in cash or a total of $12.5bn.

Google acquires Motorola

With over 80 years of history in the mobile industry, Motorola is one of the leading providers of mobile handsets including their Android powered smart phone series. I will admit that I have never owned a Motorola phone (being a loyal user of Nokia and Blackberry), but it has one good set of very sleek phones.

The addition of Motorola to the the Google family will enable Google to finally have a strong platform to further market its already growing Android user base. The company plans on maintaining Motorola as an independent company and Motorola will continue to distribute Android on its smart phones. Indeed a very powerful alliance for Google!
