    Evernote Teases “New and Magical” Hardware Devices, But Gives No Details

    Evernote is a very popular cross-platform note-taking app, though personally I prefer Google Keep. It seems, though, that they're not quite content being an app on someone else's device. Evernote CEO Phil Libin says they plan to build "new and magical" Evernote devices. We love new devices here at Geekosystem, but I think the bigger story is that Evernote has discovered magic.

    Funny or Die Beat Everyone to the Steve Jobs Biopic Punch

    Sometimes it's better to be first than to be the best, and while that's far from the philosophy displayed by Apple during Steve Jobs' life, it seems to be the one comedy site Funny or Die took when churning out their Jobs biopic iSteve. It's available online right now, ahead of its competitors jOBS and Steve Jobs.

    Today in Geek History: Steve Jobs Was Born, So Here Is Every “One More Thing…” Moment

    Today would have been Steve Jobs' 58th birthday. There's no doubt that he had a huge impact on the geek world, and he's already missed. We can't help but wonder what else Jobs and Apple could have brought into the world if he hadn't lost his battle with cancer at a relatively young age. Jobs always managed to make Apple announcements exciting in a way they really haven't been since his death, and he managed to do it with just three simple words, "One more thing." Here's every "One more thing" moment from 1999 to 2011.

    Rumor: Apple Could Have a Cheaper iPhone in the Works

    The Apple iPhones, since its launch, have been at the high end of the smartphone price range. Anyone hoping for a break in price has been relegated to buying previous versions, but there's a rumor going around that says that won't be the case for much longer. Apple may be releasing a cheaper version of the iPhone concurrently with the flagship model, similar to how they recently launched the iPad mini as a more affordable alternative to the full-sized version. This is just a rumor, and considering it's CES week, we'll probably be seeing a lot more of those.

    More Than a Year After His Death, Steve Jobs’ Super-Yacht is Finally Complete

    It's been over a year since Steve Jobs passed away, but Apple's creative juggernaut is still making awesome stuff. Jobs' private yacht, which he designed but never had the chance to see finished, has been spotted in the wild at a shipyard in  Aalsmeer, Holland. Constructed by Dutch shipbuilder Feadship, the Jobs family had the yacht the completed even after Job's death, with the help of French designer Phillipe Starck. Dubbed "Venus," after the Roman god of Beauty, Jobs' massive ship's sleek design is definitely reminiscent of the man's personal aesthetic.

    Apple’s Touching Tribute to Steve Jobs on the One Year Anniversary of His Death

    One year ago today, Apple visionary and somewhat ruthless businessman Steve Jobs passed away. If you happened to visit the Apple homepage today, you'll notice that instead of a huge graphic of the new iPhone 5, a tasteful video tribute to the Apple founder graces the screen. How do you think Apple's first year without Jobs has gone?

    Some of the Stuff Apple Fanatics Say is Unbelievable… [Video]

    I'm going to say up front: I'm a bit of an Apple fanboy. I've never owned a non-Apple computer or smartphone. While I am a fan of Apple's products, I totally understand people are who get angry about their holier-than-thou fan club. The cult of Jobs is real people having a conversation with one of company's supporter can sometimes feel like a debate with a brick wall... or a Scientologist.

    Aaron Sorkin to Write Sony’s Steve Jobs Movie

    We knew Ashton Kutcher will be playing Steve Jobs in an indie biopic, and we also knew Sony was planning a rival Steve Jobs movie. It turns out Sony has brought in the big gun to pen their rival flick, as Aaron Sorkin is now set to pen the screenplay. It's obvious we're big fans of Sorkin here at Geekosystem, slipping in mentions of Sports NightStudio 60 on the Sunset Strip, and his upcoming HBO show The Newsroom whenever we can (just like that, actually!), so we're thrilled that he'll be handling the movie adaptation of the life of Steve Jobs. After all, he did a pretty solid job handling another famous tech figurehead, Mark Zuckerberg, in his Facebook movie, The Social Network. You may have seen that.

    Ashton Kutcher to Play Steve Jobs in Indie Biopic, Probably Not an April Fools’ Joke

    Variety reports that Ashton Kutcher, of That '70s Show and replacing Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men fame, has been cast as Steve Jobs in an indie biopic about the Apple mastermind. The news released yesterday on April Fools' Day, so instead of haphazardly reporting it, we waited to see if, you know, April Fools. The news seems to be legitimate, however, and though you may not be thrilled to learn that Kelso is playing Steve Jobs, look at the comparison above. Seems pretty spot on to me.

    Own a 1984 Steve Jobs Lithograph by Norman Seeff

    Photographer Norman Seeff recounts the session wherein he took some now-famous photographs of Steve Jobs, calling the evocative shot an "electromagnetic rendition of what was going on," citing Steve Jobs having a "slight Mona Lisa quality to that knowing smile" because he is envisioning "how what he has on his lap is going to impact the future." You can now own a lithograph of the iconic image of Steve Jobs having what Seeff feels was a Mona Lisa moment, available for purchase almost 30 years after it was taken.

    Report: Apple May Be Trying To Block Sales of Steve Jobs Action Figure [UPDATED]

    That Steve Jobs action figure is pretty cool, right? I mean, who wouldn't want to have one? Apple apparently, and it looks like they don't want you to have one either. According to the Telegraph, the company making the doll received a little letter from Apple, threatening legal action. The argument, it seems, is that Apple feels like it owns the rights to Steve Jobs. It's worth noting that the Telegraph's report of the legal trouble is cautiously worded and no sources are cited, so it might not be the real deal.

    Steve Jobs Action Figure is Now a Thing You Can Buy

    Because nothing says that you really cherish the memory of someone than buying their likeness cast as a 12-inch model, in icons is planning to bring a Steve Jobs action figure to market. The pint-sized version of everyone's favorite deceased tech visionary comes with a black turtleneck, blue jeans, New Balance sneakers, an apple (fruit), glasses, stool, and "one more thing" backdrop. I have to admit that this thing looks remarkably well made, but of all the cash-ins at the death of Jobs, this seems like the creepiest.

    Time’s Person Of The Year May Be A Cop-Out, But Not For The First Time

    Time's Person of the Year this year is officially "The Protester." I can see what they're getting at, but it does seem like something of a cop-out, right? I mean, "The Protester" is more like a Type-of-Person of the Year, or maybe the Class-Loadout of the Year. Besides that, Steve Jobs sure did spend a giant portion of the year dominating headlines. Of course, he might not have been a great person exactly, but that is up for debate. Also, let me remind you that Hitler (yes, that Hitler) was once Time's Person of the Year, and Stalin was twice. They aren't all heroes. On that note, as lame as "The Protester" might feel, there are way, way lamer ones in the past. Let's take a look, shall we?
