Another Apple PR disaster is looming; it looks as though “Locationgate” is making its debut appearance in Federal Court.

If I were in the executive leadership at BlackBerry’s Research In Motion, I’d be doing the latter. Turns out, when the very first iPhone was announced, it caused quite a ruckus…

Steve Jobs named “CEO of the decade”

MarketWatch has very recently published the results of its CEO awards. Hardly surprising then that the award for CEO of the decade went to every Apple fanboy’s idol, Steve Jobs.
