The Day After iPhone 4S, IOS5, and Siri Were Released, Steve Jobs Passed Away

Here are some highlights from  his speech given at a Stanford Commencement: -- "When I was 17 I read a quote that went something like, 'If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you will most certainly be right.' It made an impression on me. And since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself, 'If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?' And whenever the answer has been 'No' for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something."
-- "Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything -- all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure -- these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important."
-- "Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked, there is no reason not to follow your heart."
Jobs recalled when he was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2003, and when the doctor told him to "get his affairs in order." Then Jobs shared these words of wisdom.
"No one wants to die ... and yet, death is the destination we all share. Death is very likely the single best invention of life. It's life's change agent."

He added: "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

His parting words: "Stay hungry, stay foolish."

Baguette Vending Machine: Hot Baguette to Go or Tomorrow's Bakery

Et Voilà La Baguette Vending Machine: Baguette Prête-à-manger: Hot Baguette-to-go or La Boulangerie de Demain (Tomorrow’s Bakery)
Is this just a fad? Or is the Baguette Vending Machine the beginning sign of a changing way of life for most French? Please stop questioning. It is time to go with the times! Pourquoi tout ce changement? On se demande.
Is this the case of cultural trespassing? Is this the case of American McDonald’s playing a few tricks on the sacred cow or sacred ground of French bakery?
Well, read on to find out more about the invention of this French baker who got tired of people making late-night forage to his bakery only to find there no fresh baguette ready to be purchased. Shoppers were coming to shop at all times at his bakery below his apartment. Necessity being the cause of most inventions, he had been working on this personal project for a number of years. It was not without facing some early failures, but he would not give up. He was determined to bring fresh, warm baguettes to his customers at any time of the day and night.
The French baker’s name is Jean-Louise Hetcht. Mr. Hetcht did not get discouraged by the laughter and name-calling by some of his famous friend or competitor chefs. He knew a few things well. During the months of July and August or vacation time, most French bakeries are closed. They close down for vacation time which is highly looked forward to by everybody. After a certain time, one can not find fresh baguettes from any good bakeries. So he wanted to have a machine that would solve these two problems: installing a 24-hour automated, fresh baguette dispenser that would please his customers all the time.
The idea appears simple but it is loaded with technology. The machine would be loaded with pre-cooked bread. Once a customer has made his/her selection, it would spit out warm and ready-to-eat baguette.
Et voilà! Baguettes en main, de nouveaux clients qui partent heureux comme jamais!

A new Suit for Apple over iCloud Marks by iCloud Communications

Apple is declared a serial infringer on other people's rights in a recent lawsuit filed by iCloud Communications that listed all the instances the giant company treaded on others' rights. iCloud Communications sued Apple in an Arizona court as soon as Apple concluded its WWDC in San Francisco. iCloud Communications wants all the profits from Apple's iCloud thus far. And it wants the Cupertino company to cease and decease the use of iCloud. What iCloud did not know is that Apple was a little smarter this time by acquiring earlier the website which has U.S patents, icloud.com. So it is not going to be easy for iCloud Communications to have a slam dunk. Read more of the case against Apple at PCMag.

Here is a sample of the content of the case: "The goods and services with which Apple intends to use the 'iCloud' mark are identical to or closely related to the goods and services that have been offered by iCloud Communications under the iCloud Marks since its formation in 2005," the complaint, first obtained by The Next Web, alleges. "Due to the worldwide media coverage given to and generated by Apple's announcement of its 'iCloud' services and the ensuing saturation advertising campaign pursued by Apple,the media and the general public have quickly come to associate the mark 'iCloud' with Apple, rather than iCloud Communications."

"Monetary relief alone is inadequate to fully address the irreparable injurythat Apple’s illegal actions have caused and will continue to cause to iCloudCommunications if this Court does not enjoin Apple. iCloud Communications istherefore entitled to preliminary and permanent injunctive relief to stop Apple’s unfaircompetition"

2010 Consumer Electronics Show: Connected TV or Internet TV and IPAD Tablet Rivals

This year's consumer electronics is all about Internet-connected TV. Skeptics are wondering wether it will even take off and allow viewers to watch web videos and traditional television shows. Web-capable TV is on the mind of all the manufacturers. The idea is that these new TV sets already have the capability built in. But this year is specially marked by the ipad which has garnered a lot of attention. Well, let us just say that the Apple's IPad is the top dog that all the competitors are trying to emulate. Some of its rivals include the devices developed by the likes of Hewlett Packard Inc., Blackberry-maker Research in Motion Ltd., Microsoft Corp that have already developed some forms of tablets. Web-connected TV will have to come with high resolution screens. Web-connected TV is here to make its firm debut, but mobile technology facilitated by companies such as AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sony's Blu-Ray players and home theater, Broadcom, Google with its Android software are quickly making mobile connectivity the next big thing. Internet-TV services are now possible. The companies just need to refine things up. The jury is still out on Google TV software which is supposed to marry the Web and traditional TV with its most recent TV set. There may not be too much consumer's enthusiasm for it right now. Do not expect much info from the manufacturers this year because Google has to refine its software. It needs to work out the kinks.
