It turns out that Tim Cook’s old high school in Robertsdale, Alabama, isn’t quite as fond of the MacBook is he is.

Robertsdale High, from which Apple’s CEO graduated in 1978, has swapped the company’s notebooks it was giving to every student for significantly more affordable Chromebooks built by Lenovo.

The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage.

The country is talking about the Supreme Court’s historic ruling that gives all citizens the right to marry the person they love, regardless of sexual orientation, and the tech community is stoked. Everyone from Apple CEO Tim Cook to T-Mobile to Uber are coming out in favor of the ruling and love.

Take a look at the celebration party everyone’s having on Twitter:

Eric Schmidt has hit back at Tim Cook’s recent jibes at Google, claiming that “someone didn’t brief him correctly on Google’s policies.”

Schmidt was speaking as part of a CNN Money interview to promote his new book How Google Works. The Tim Cook comments in question concern Apple’s focus on keeping user data private.

During his recent two-part interview with Charlie Rose, Cook said that, “I think everyone has to ask, ‘How do companies make their money?’ Follow the money. And if they’re making money mainly by collecting gobs of personal data, I think you have a right to be worried and you should really understand what’s happening with that data.”

Samsung v Apple

Samsung’s head of mobile business, J.K. Shin, earns more than Tim Cook, according to a new report.

In 2014, Shin received $5.8 million compensation– made up of a base salary of 1.17 billion won, and 1.6 billion won in incentives and performance bonus. By comparison, Tim Cook took home $4.25 million — only slightly more than the $4.17 he earned in 2012.


Samsung has apologized to Chinese customers following a report from China’s state TV that alleged the South Korean company had sold devices with malfunctioning memory chips. The problem, which affects seven Samsung smartphones in total, causes the devices to crash randomly when they’re being used.
