Last Wednesday night, there was a frenzy of activity across social networks memorializing Steve Jobs. He is, for our generation, the man who has had the greatest impact on our lives.

The death of an icon

Last night, we heard that Steve Jobs, Apple’s former Chief Executive Officer, passed away. He had been sick for many years, suffering from a rare form of pancreatic cancer, which finally took his life. It is amazing how as average students, our lives were touched so greatly by a single innovator.

Apple: Business as usual

On Jan. 17, Steve Jobs announced a medical leave of absence, just months after a taxing liver transplant in early January. Jobs’ reprieve reflects the multiple operations that the CEO has undergone over the past several years, beginning in 2004 when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

Students weigh in on the new iPad

Apple recently went public with its new tablet computer, the iPad. Features of the new device include Web browsing, picture viewing, gaming and support for e-books. Almost all of the current iPhone applications will work on the device. It weighs 1.5 pounds and is half an inch thick.

Oh my God, it’s almost 2010: Best Comebacks

“I’m rubber and you’re glue…” No, not that kind of comeback (though that is a classic). Every year, singers, actors, movie franchises and companies make big comebacks that shake up the entertainment world. This year saw the return of diva Whitney Houston, the “Star Trek” franchise and “Melrose Place.”

The new iPod nano

Opening the case housing the new iPod nano might just be a religious experience. If angels don’t sing as the clear plastic door swings back, it’s only because Apple hasn’t yet stashed the recording in the packaging.
