Steve Wozniak Says Apple loses its Cool

Apple feels the pressure this year on the stock market and also from consumers. Where is the next big thing? That is the question that is in the room for Apple. Is it the rumored iWatch? Even Apple co-founder Wozniak is chiming in the criticism. In an interview with Bloomberg he said:

"We used to have these ads, I’m a Mac and I’m a PC, and the Mac was always the cool guy,” he said. “And ouch, it’s painful, because we kind of are losing that."

Funny enough. Microsoft founder Bill Gates said something similar this week about Microsoft. Bill Gates is not satisfied that in terms of breakthrough things Microsoft is not doing everything possible."

So two founders are not happy with the innovation power of the companies the created decades ago.

Can Once-Famous Gaming Giant Atari Turn a New Generation on to Pong?

Source: AdWeek

Brands come and brands go, but only rarely does one dig its own grave. That’s exactly what Atari did 31 years ago. It was 1983, and so poor were the sales of the brand’s 20 or so titles (in particular, E.T., generally believed to be the worst video game of all time) that the video game company dug a hole in the New Mexico desert and buried some 700,000 cartridges in it. That story is just one reason the gaming world has been abuzz with Atari news of late. Not only was the fab ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
