JOBS clip depicts inception of the Apple brand

A new clip from the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic, Jobs, has been posted online. In the scene Jobs and Wozniak, played by Ashton Kutcher and Josh Gad, are driving while debating names for their new company. Jobs rejects any names related to Star Trek, threatening to drive the car off the road, but then grasps onto the name Apple arguing that it is "the fruit of creation" and "comes before Atari in the phonebook." While obviously fictionalized, this depiction does pull information from both Wozniak's and Job's stories of how the Apple name came to be.

MagBak reaches KickStarter goal in under three days

MagBak, a magnetic patch that can be used to mount an iPad to any magnetic surface, has reached its KickStarter funding goal in less than three days. Customers who purchase the MagBak receive two silicon patches, in their choice of six colors, that are placed on the back of any iPad. These patches contain small magnets that allow the device to be securely mounted to any metal surface, and can also hold a smart cover neatly on the back of the iPad. Additionally, the textured silicone surface improve the iPad's grip, allowing it to be set on an inclined surface without sliding down.
