  5. How is Tim Cook different to Steve Jobs?

    How is Tim Cook different to Steve Jobs?

    By Josh Lowensohn, CNET News.com on November 3rd, 2011 

    Tim Cook has been Apple's chief executive officer for little more than two months, but he's already made some distinct changes from his predecessor, a new report says.

    The Wall Street Journal has posted a profile of Cook's experience since taking on the CEO role (subscription required). The paper took a close look at a number of changes made during his tenure so far, which began in August when the company's late co-founder Steve Jobs stepped down as CEO.

    Among the key points in the article is that the company began a charity matching program in early September, which matched donations made by employees up to US$10,000 a year. The Journal notes that Jobs "was opposed to giving money away", citing an unnamed source who attended one of the company's off-site meeting in 2010.

    It's also noted that Cook communicates more than Jobs, including company-wide emails. Several of those emails have leaked out since Cook took office, including the one announcing the aforementioned charity matching program, senior promotions and details about when the company planned to hold a celebration of Jobs' life at its Cupertino headquarters.

    Finally, the piece also offers conjecture that Cook might treat Apple's US$81.6 billion cash pile differently from Jobs, who used it sparingly for acquisitions during his tenure, including recent buys like Siri and Quattro Wireless.

    Cook has been under a microscope since taking over as CEO of Apple. Despite the fact that he filled in for Jobs during his medical absences, the company had hedged its bets by stating that Jobs would, at that time, still be involved in strategic decision making.

    Cook's first public showing in the new role was at the unveiling of the iPhone 4S, a performance critics panned as bland, but was quickly overshadowed by the passing of Jobs the next day.

  7. Nokia N9 gets a PR1.1 update, a ton of new features

    N9 owners are already starting to get a notification for the update that was promised to them back at Nokia World. The PR 1.1 release brings in a host of performance improvements and many new features. The total number of enhancements sits at the cool 308, so this update should dramatically improve the user experience of the MeeGo flagship.

    The general performance of the Nokia N9 is said to be improved and there are tune-ups to the visuals of the platform. The popular Swype keyboard has now been backed into MeeGo, while the lockscreen got music controls.

    The 8 megapixel camera got color filters, while multitasking reportedly got even better, thanks to the improved memory handling. And the nifty feature that lets you close apps instead of sending them to the background by swiping down is now enabled by default.

    There are updates to the NFC and Wi-Fi connectivity, the exchange support, the web browser, the Facebook integration and whatnot.

    Check out the stream screen for the notification and don't forget to tell us how you find your N9 after the update. Here's how the update process itself should go:

    If you don't get the update notification automatically you can do a manual check under settings/applications/manage applications.

    And by the way, Nokia has another update for the N9 that's already in the works. PR1.2 should bring system-wide copy&paste and folders, along with significant improvement in the camera performance. There's no telling on when that one will be released, though.
