    The Ghost in the Machine - How Steve Jobs Still Haunts the Computer Industry

    in Technology

    Even though it's been more than 3 years since the death of Apple Computer co-founder Steve Jobs, his presence is still felt in the industry he helped start. Whether you use a PC, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone, there is some of Steve Jobs inside these devices. If you buy music online, Jobs was responsible for revolutionizing the way that music is bought and sold online. He even had a hand in bringing digital animation to fruition with his acquisition of Pixar. When it comes to revolutionizing the technological world in which we live, you'd be hard pressed to find an area in which Steve did not have an impact. In this episode of  Working the Web to Win, we will look at how different the world would be had he not come along, as well as how his legacy is likely to continue for decades to come.

    Steve Jobs' Apple Revolution and the Fall of Man

    in Technology

    Got the latest iGadget? Have you joined the Apple Revolution? Apparently more than mere products, there are those who argue that the iPod, iMac, iPhone and iPad are part of an ‘Apple Revolution’ that elevated computing – and the development of human consciousness itself – to a higher plane. But are such plaudits really merited?
    Steve Jobs’ legacy undoubtedly influenced computing in a big way, but Apple is, of course, just one company among many. This week on SOTT Talk Radio we’re going to look at the state of information technology and ask whether it’s liberating us, or imprisoning us. From tablets and laptops to wi-fi and smartphones, what effects are these tech toys having on humanity?
    Join us this Sunday November 10th 2013, from 8-10pm CET (2-4pm EST, 11am-1pm PST) as we taste the fruit of good and evil.

    Episode 94, The Rising Apple Report: Camp Bravado is open for business

    in Sports

    The caleder still says February, the temperature in the northeast is still below freezing, and for many the winter snow has been relentless.  However, nothing advertises a changing of the season quite like Spring Training.


    Port St. Lucie is finally open for business.  All position players were due by Tuesday, and today marked the first day of full squad workouts.


    Over the winter, the Mets contracted a strong case of confidence.  Tonight's 94th episode of the Rising Apple Report will swing the gates open to Camp Bravado, and debate the merits of their words.


    If the Mets indeed seem emboldened to you, perhaps the return of Matt Harvey is one reason why.  On March 6th, he will tentatively take the mound and face live competition for the first time since 2013.


    Also up for discussion are the potential crowding of the bullpen and a lack of another lefty, Lucas Duda's injury, the never ending quest to rectify shortstop, the 1994 regular season, and much more.


    Rising Apple staff writer Rich Sparago will host this evening's discussion, and will be joined by fellow staff writer Michael Lecolant.  As always, you are most welcome to call the show and join the conversation.


    The number is 646-929-0337.  The show starts at 9:00pm (EST) sharp.
