- Steve Jobs Resigns as Apple CE
Inside Apple — From Steve Jobs down to the janitor: How America’s most successful-and most secretive-big company really works.
Steve Jobs the head of Apple Computers announced on August 24 2011, that he is resigning as the CEO. He was the founder and had some ups and downs because of his fierce commitment to his own viewpoint. He missed the market and while most would concede that he has always had better products and services than Bill Gates and Microsoft, they have made more out of the marketing and providing integrated services. Apple has been on a steady climb to overtake with their additional products for micro computing like the I-pod, I-pad, I-touch, and I-phone.
He says that the company has exceeded his abilities which seems to be the first sign of humility in his storied computing career.

Mac Mini Memory Installation
Mac Mini Memory
Computers in general are not friendly to the environment but enter the mac mini memory fails to come up with anything remotely close to the computing ability and efficiency demonstrated by Apple Computers led by Steve Jobs. This handful computer the mac mini runs at a mere 10 watts but for all this size reduction and conservation of energy this is a full size computer which at introduction had the top speed and graphics available. The bottom plate allowed access to the mac mini memory to replace or upgrade the memory as needed. The mac mini memory makes this an excellent choice for gaming and 3d video. After 2010 the mac mini no longer has a separate external power source, but the power source is inside the mac mini adjacent to the memory.
Mac Mini Memory
Steve jobs introduced mac mini memory removable primarily to target PC users who were considering a crossover move. The device was shipped sans keyboard mouse and even the nice apple display/monitor because they figured that most people making the change would already have all the necessary accessories. In addition to energy conservation and its small size appeal it is also extremely affordable in comparison with the other two products that anchor Apple’s computer line the Mac and the MacPro.
Mac Mini Memory Server
A special version of the mac mini memory serves to remind me is intended for use in a small network as a server. This unit comes packaged with snow leopard software for server purposes.

Battle of Linux vs Windows
Linux vs Windows Personal Experience
I have a couple of friends, both techies, who use it and encouraged me to give the test of Linux vs Windows a try. I finally did after ANOTHER frustrating experience with Windows, and one of them helped me install Linux. It is an operating system, just like Windows and Mac, but it’s what they call an open source system. Open Source means that anyone can write programs for it, but as soon as you offer it, other techies around the world are going to scrutinize it for suspicious content – hence there are no viruses with Linux. There are thousands of apps that you can install, and it runs OpenOffice. Caveat: I tried to install something a couple of weeks ago, and now I can’t get it to boot up, so I’m back to Windows for the time being. Don’t try the Linux vs Windows test unless you have a good, available techie to help you out in a bind. Sounds negative, but you have the same problem with Windows for sure, and maybe Mac as well. One feature that I really like is that when you turn it on, you’re ready to go in less than 30 seconds, and it turns off in 5 seconds, instead of the 90 that Windows takes. Linux takes a little getting used to, layout and such, but overall I like Linux. Maybe Linux For Dummies would be helpful. P.S. Linux is free which makes taking the Linux vs Windows test very appealing.
