BitTorrent, Jobs’ Apple and Dying Technologies

28 Oct

Came across few nice articles today. Worth reading at least once. Huge information in all of them.

Quoting them below

BitTorrent’s Bram Cohen Isn’t Limited by Asperger’s

When I read it I couldn’t understand how it would be to think having the syndrome. BitTorrent has single handedly pushed the P2P architecture to grow exponentially

Being Steve Jobs’ Boss

John Sculley talking about how it was being Steve Jobs’ boss and reiterating the fact that Apple is not  brand without Steve Jobs being there to handle it, nurture it. It gives me immense pleasure everytime I read about Jobs. There are so many stories about him, some true, some not. Some untold and some secret. This article not only deals with the p.o.v of a CEO who himself quotes the job was much more suited for Jobs, but also deals with how the competition and other biggies in Japan like Sony was an inspiration for Jobs

Twenty Dying Technologies

Reading this was a pleasure, with WiTricity being my most favorite tech that would and should probably take over conventional electricity. As a child, 10 years old, I used to think we could have electricity that would travel not thru wires but wirelessly. I was never exposed to so much that could know that there were places where I could have gone to research

This set of 20 tech that would soon get extinct is a nice morning read for tech-enthusiasts
