Apple planning to shake up the tablet market later this year: report

With the iPad, Apple single-handedly created today's multi-billion dollar tablet market, and continues to be its most dominant player.

But that doesn't mean that Apple is the only company cashing in on the devices that have changed the face of computing. If you want a new iPad, you'll need to shell out $499 -- a price too steep for many consumers.

Will Apple's new high-street hire change the way we buy Apple products?

Few CEOs have it as good as Apple's Tim Cook. Just look at his company's performance in the first quarter of his tenure.

But as strong as Apple is currently, Cook can't sit back and hope that the company Steve Jobs took to new heights will run itself. He'll have to make tough decisions, and put his mark on the company's operations.

He's doing just that with his first big hire.

Apple lures exec from Adobe to head iAd

When Steve Jobs unveiled iAd to the world, he promised an offering that would revolutionise mobile advertising.

For many tech entrepreneurs, a startup leads to one of three destinations: acquisition, IPO, or failure. Historically, the risks have been big, but the rewards have been even bigger.

Increasingly, big companies (like Google) and high-flying upstarts (like Facebook) are targeting young startups for acquisition. Not for assets or IP, but for their people.

Apple without Steve Jobs? Here's what it means

Apple is one of the most prominent companies in the world, and arguably, it's the most visible technology brand in the world.

It's hard to believe that little more than a decade ago, Apple was potentially on the brink of disaster. While many people were involved in turning Apple around, one man, Steve Jobs, provided the vision that led the company to new heights.

But the Steve Jobs era at Apple is officially over. Yesterday, the visionary leader of the world's richest technology company resigned from his post as CEO.
