FORTUNE -- "Weird."
That was the one-word answer given by Apple (AAPL) chairman Arthur D. Levinson when asked to describe his experience running the company's board of directors since Steve Jobs's death. Levinson, who joined the board in 2000, was a colleague and close friend to Apple's MOREFeb 20, 2013 10:19 AM ET
The programming platform Oracle inherited from Sun continues to plague Apple
FORTUNE -- "Java's not worth building in," Steve Jobs told the New York Times' John Markoff in 2007. "Nobody uses Java anymore. It's this big heavyweight ball and chain."
To Jobs' regret, Java did not disappear. The write-once-run-anywhere programming platform that Sun Microsystems developed and Oracle (ORCL) inherited continues to drag Apple (AAPL) down.

FORTUNE -- Apple University has always been something of a stealth operation. It was created as a kind of in-house MBA program by Steve Jobs, a self-taught business leader who made no secret of his distaste for conventional MBAs.
"We do want to create our own MBAs," Jobs once said. "But in our own image."

The closest thing to a Steve Jobs appearance the Expo has seen since 2008
FORTUNE -- Okay, so it's not the Aaron Sorkin version we really want to see -- the one based on Walter Isaacson's biography. But it is the first Steve Jobs biopic to make it out of the gate (premiered at Sundance last week to mixed reviews, scheduled for release April 19), and it does have Demi Moore's MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 31, 2013 12:01 PM ET
Why Apple is happy to cannibalize its own PC business
FORTUNE -- At the end of a post analyzing the factors that led to a 22% drop (16%, by weekly stats) in Mac sales last quarter -- the biggest decline in 10 years -- SplatF's Dan Frommer offers the chart above. It's a graph showing what a decade of Apple's (AAPL) computer sales would look like if -- as Steve Jobs MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 30, 2013 9:08 AM ET
The story rose and sank in less than a week
FORTUNE -- It was, in many ways, the perfect Apple-in-the-post-Steve-Jobs-era yarn, although in truth it had nothing to do with Apple (AAPL) and not much to do with Jobs.
On Friday, Reuters reported that the 260-foot aluminum yacht that Jobs commissioned before he died had been seized by Dutch authorities in a dispute over an unpaid bill.
"Baliffs boarded the brand new yacht MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 24, 2012 3:56 PM ET
Excerpts from Tim Cook's Bloomberg Businessweek interview
FORTUNE -- We always knew that Steve Jobs was going to be a tough act to follow, so I suppose his successor should be forgiven if he came across in his NBC and Bloomberg Q&As Thursday as painfully sincere and even a little schmaltzy -- something the more cynical Jobs always managed to avoid.
The big PR coup in both interviews, of course, was the news MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 7, 2012 7:15 AM ET
The iPhone 5 faces fierce competition in the world's largest smartphone market

Many suspected two years ago that the iPad-only publication was dead on arrival
FORTUNE -- News Corp. (NWS) announced Monday that The Daily -- the iPad-only publication launched with great fanfare by Rupert Murdoch with the encouragement of Apple's (AAPL) Steve Jobs (and a little speech by Senior VP Eddy Cue) -- will "cease standalone publication" on Dec. 15, one month short of its second birthday.

Did anyone really expect there wouldn't be delays?
FORTUNE -- The 14,000 Apple (AAPL) employees who were looking forward to moving into the building that Steve Jobs described as looking like "a spaceship has landed" will have to wait a little longer.
Last week the company gave the Cupertino city council revisions to the plans for its new headquarters that will likely push completion into 2016 at the earliest, about a year behind schedule.
