Apple’s Tim Cook Pays Washington a Courtesy Call
Apple’s Tim Cook Pays Washington a Courtesy Call
Apple CEO Tim Cook visited Washington last week for a series of sit-downs with Congressional leaders. The meetings -- with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) -- were largely introductory, Fortune reports.

Creating the Windows 8 user experience
This blog often focuses on the bits and features and less on the “philosophy” or “context” of the product. Given the level of brand new innovations in Windows 8, however, we think it is worth putting Windows 8 in the context in which we approached the design. As with any significant change to a broadly...
