Actor Ashton Kutcher has his hand in more than just the show Two and a Half Men and other roles, including his portrayal of Steve Jobs in the upcoming film Jobs. While other actors venture into businesses such as clothing lines or fragrances, Kutcher actively invests in the tech community with a venture fund. He shared his insight into the mobile sector in a keynote interview at CTIA 2013, the wireless industry trade show held this week in Las Vegas.
Twitter has announced it is deploying a long-awaited security measure: two-factor verification. The move comes about a month after The Associated Press' Twitter account was hacked. Twitter is late to the game with this security tactic. A number of companies already feature it.

The most effective way to learn is to map the different learning styles to each individual's characteristic strengths, according to Myers-Briggs. Moreover, when used in combination, the different styles become reinforcing components of the overall learning experience.
So is Apple a tax-dodging evil company with a dark heart? No. The answer is no. However, Apple is certainly a corporation, and all corporations are driven first and foremost by profit -- no matter what the company says about the joy of making great products. Astoundingly passionate and driven individuals, who sometimes run corporations -- perhaps like the late Steve Jobs -- might be driven by the joy of creation, with profit becoming just a tool to enable the chance to create a dent in the universe.
