In recent news, it was announced that Steve Jobs and Laurene Powell Jobs are now the sole owners of Arctic Fox, LLC. The company is a mobile app development company headquartered in Cupertino, California. It was founded by Steve Jobs and iPod co-founder Tony Fadell in 2002.

Jobs stepped down as CEO of Apple in August 2011 but remained on the Board of Directors. Prior to founding Arctic Fox he served as CTO at NeXT from 1990-97, where he led the development of the operating system for the first MP3 player – the dearly departed Revolutionary Player (Figure 1).

Fadell left NeXT in 1997 and started up Playfish (now Zynga) with his colleague Jonathan Fischer. They were also original members of Apple’s early engineering team which developedSTEP/2 computer software used to design products such as McIntosh reproducer models and early iMacs (Figure 2).
The sale comes after years of rumors about its ownership structure, due to sparse financial disclosures by both Jobs and Powell Jobs since they divested their majority stake in 2010 following Jobs’ death. However they have kept a minority stake through two subsequent rounds of investment totaling $200 million each since then apparently staving off potential attempts by other buyers interested not only in taking over Arctic Fox outright but also seeing what role Apple might play should it come under competitive pressure

Is nickname also called pet name? Many people refer to their nicknames as their “pet names”. For example, if your nickname is Steve, then most people would call you Steve. However, some other people might call you by your real name, but add the suffix -y (like Jerry) or -ie (like Brittany). Ultimately it all depends on how close you are with that person and how comfortable they are with giving out personal information about themselves. Some people just go by their regular name because it’s more formal. The important thing is that everyone who refers to you by your nickname knows how close you are with each other!

Do birds have dinosaur DNA? There has been much debate on this topic, with some suggesting that dinosaurs may have contributed to the development of modern birds, and others stating that there is simply no evidence to support such a connection. One piece of evidence commonly cited in support of a link between the two groups is the similarity in structure between bird wings and those of dinosaurs. However, it is also possible that this similarity is due to independent evolution rather than any ancestral connection. Regardless of whether or not there is actually a genetic link between dinosaurs and birds, the issue remains an intriguing one and continues to generate interest among scientists and enthusiasts alike.

When Fox 10 Phoenix announced that former ABC7 Anchor Pam Bonner would be the new anchor starting on Monday, September 6th, many people were excited.Bonner is no stranger to Arizona media and has been a news anchor for over 20 years. She comes from a long television journalistic pedigree including stints at KTVK, KPHO and WSYX in Cincinnati before coming to Arizona in 1998 as an anchor for Channel 3 News. Bonner had a successful six year run as the primary Anchor of ABC-15’s evening newscast until she left in 2006 to join KTVK-TV as an Anchor and Co-Executive Producer of the 4pm newscast which she still co-anchors today. Although Bonner will remain based out of Phoenix, her coverage area will now also include Tucson and Yuma with reports airing through Stan McCrary’s McClatchy bureau downtown which covers the important Northern Arizonan cities.,Bonner is no newcomer to breaking news stories. During her time at ABC15 she was known for finding critical stories early and getting them on air quickly before they became headline news. With extensive experience reporting statewide, it is hoped that Bonner will bring an update (and lighter tone) to Fox 10’s evening newscast while continuing coverage of serious headlines when warranted
