Team Coco's video bits can be hit or miss. The one about Apple's iNett was a miss.
Maybe it was because I just got back from the return engagement of Mike Daisey's The Agony and Ecstasy of Steve Jobs at The Public Theater of New York.
Or maybe the details in the New York Times series on working conditions in Shenzhen, China, hit too close to home.
But for me the video sketch about MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 2, 2012 11:05 AM ET
Calls the suggestion that his company doesn't care about the health and safety of workers in the supply chain he built "patently false and offensive"
Here's one thing that's changed since Steve Jobs died.
When Tim Cook, Apple's (AAPL) new CEO, thinks his company has been wronged by the media, he doesn't shrink from hitting back -- swiftly and in a way that he knows will quickly become public.
This report that got MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 27, 2012 12:16 PM ET
Its investigative series about how our electronic gadgets are made could be a contender
When monologist Mike Daisey flew to China to find out why the workers who assemble electronic devices for Apple (AAPL) -- and every other major U.S. manufacturer -- were jumping from the roofs of their factory-city dormitories, he was shocked to discover that most of the American reporters writing about the suicides had never visited the plants MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 26, 2012 7:20 AM ET
Samsung's "buzz score" has overtaken Apple's in a key demographic, says YouGov
The chart at right says it all.
Starting around Nov. 28 -- six days after Samsung began airing its Galaxy Nexus ads mocking Apple's (AAPL) customer base (see here) -- the Korean conglomerate's "buzz" started rising and the iPhone's drifting down.
And on Wednesday, according to a press release issued by YouGov, something unthinkable happened:
"Samsung has just edged past the iPhone MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 14, 2011 1:11 PM ET
A sister's eulogy to Steve Jobs
When I read Mona Simpson's, A Regular Guy, I was left with the impression that she didn't much like her brother.
I was wrong.
If you haven't seen it yet, set aside a few minutes this evening to read her eulogy to Steve Jobs, delivered at his memorial service and published Sunday by the New York Times.
And if you cared at all about the man who co-founded Apple (AAPL), bring a MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 30, 2011 6:39 PM ET
The flood of revelations from the year's hottest biography began four days early
The best-laid plans of authors and publishers often go awry when the bookstores get their copies.
Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs -- the most hotly anticipated biography in years, at least in some circles -- was supposed to have a dramatic worldwide laydown on Monday. But to the distress of Isaacson, Simon & Schuster and the dozens of publications that MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 21, 2011 6:22 AM ET
The Senate hearings scheduled for Wednesday will only scratch the surface
Apple (AAPL) is conspicuously absent from the witness list for Wednesday's hearing on "The Power of Google" before the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition and Consumer Rights. Yelp! and Nextag will be represented, but Google (GOOG) has stepped on a lot more toes than theirs to maintain and extend its dominance of the Internet's sustaining source of revenue -- advertising MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Sep 19, 2011 7:38 AM ET
"There is a bounce to his step that betrays a certain youthful cockiness"
Joe Nocera's lovely op-ed essay in Saturday's New York Times does us all a favor by including a link to a piece Nocera wrote about Steve Jobs for Esquire in 1986.
Jobs had been kicked out of Apple (AAPL), and to help drum up publicity for his new project, NeXT, he invited Nocera -- who would later become Fortune's editorial director MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 27, 2011 9:24 AM ET
His name appears on a remarkable range of inventions
One way to take a measure of Steve Jobs' legacy at Apple (AAPL) is to search for his patents in the database maintained by U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Click here to get started.
If you look for patents assigned to either Apple Computer or Apple Inc., you'll get a total of 11,112 titles.
Narrow that search to patents that have Jobs listed as an MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 25, 2011 11:21 AM ET
Declines to bring charges against Gizmodo's Jason Chen in stolen iPhone case
From AppleInsider's transcript of an interview with Apple's (AAPL) Steve Jobs at All Things Digital's 2010 D8 conference:
Mossberg brought up the issue of Apple's missing prototype iPhone and asked Jobs about the police seizure of computers and other equipment belonging to the Gizmodo editor who broke the story, saying the police "go and don't issue a search warrant and […] they grab this MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Aug 11, 2011 6:57 AM ET
