Part 1 can be read here. Part 2 is here. A friend at Red Room, where the first two of my article series are also posted, commented on my "Dirty, Pretty Things: Apple, Inc. and China" series that the conditions of the Chinese workers at Apple suppliers such as Foxconn and Wintek are preferable...

I can't seem to quit writing about Harper's Magazine, especially since my old tried and true, NEWSWEEK, has corroded to crap right before my eyes. It's perhaps unfair to compare a weekly with a monthly, but Harper's always gives its readers something topical, but in a depth that NEWSWEEK has long...

To the technophobes out there, I’ll introduce Apple’s latest-and-greatest.  Through a free voice-activated artificial-intelligence system (‘personal assistant’), the latest I-phone converses.  This forty-five day old article announced the function: http://www.forbes.com/sites/...

I'm certainly not the savviest guy on the block wihen it comes to computer code and its accompanying hardware, and forgive the Biblical-sounding post title for something as contemporary as next week. I'm simply a technology user - a techno-geek in the missus' eyes - but one who struggles to keep...

Our world's population has lost one of the greatest minds of its time. So I find it only fitting to say a few things about where he's going from here, at least, in my viewpoint. When you think of the truly great inventors, geniuses, and business pioneers of the worlds history very few names...

As I've been reading the tributes to Steve Jobs, I started thinking about my long love affair with Apple. My Dad bought a Macintosh in the early '80s. It was much more compact and easier to use than the large desktop PC my Mom had bought for her business. The little Macintosh was a neat toy, but I...

I am baffled by this outpouring of love and emotion for Steve Jobs. The make-shift shrines at Apple Stores, the flowers on the lawn in Cupertino, the touching tributes on Facebook - I get it, but I don't get it. Did we really love this man? Or is it something else we love? What Steve Jobs...
