This Wednesday, President-elect Donald Trump will meet with — or "summon", as it were — leaders from across the tech industry for a round-table chat. On paper, this appears to be a very sensible meeting. Silicon Valley nurtured a deliciously cosy relationship with the Obama administration, and it stands to reason that it will try that route with the Trump regime.

A bunch of old shit that used to belong to Steve Jobs is going up for auction later this month.
It's 2016, and Apple's mysterious, oft-buzzed about car project is still tucked away under the "ideas that may or may not happen in this lifetime" section of the company's filing cabinet. Despite a powerful rumour mill — former Apple board member Mickey Drexler once claimed it was Steve Jobs' "dream" to make an iCar, and reports have repeatedly materialised over the years that Apple was in various stages of building its own vehicle — we're still waiting, and the will-they-or-won't-they nature of the project has us asking if we'll ever see the vehicular version of Big Foot.
It's been 40 years since Apple was founded, and by now, the story is a Silicon Valley legend: Two friends, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, built a multi-billion dollar empire right out of their parent's garage. But what most people don't know was that there was actually a third person critical to Apple's origin.
The day is almost here: When America gets to witness Seth Rogen as Woz. In preparation for the Steve Jobs theatrical release on October 23, Woz himself has been doing a lot of publicity for the film, including making this featurette that juxtaposes his real-life commentary with snippets from the movie.
Remember when Steve Jobs abandoned his daughter and refused to pay child support despite being worth millions of dollars? Alex Gibney's new documentary Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine, which hits cinemas, iTunes and VOD on Friday, September 4, is at once a study of the late visionary's unrelenting optimism about the power of computers to change the world and a portrait of a ruthless businessman who trampled others' lives on the way to his goals.
Today there's a new trailer for the other other other Steve Jobs movie, the one starring Michael Fassbender. But this trailer gives us the first real look at Seth Rogen as Woz... and damned if I'm not going to see this movie just to watch him.
Now that the collective eye roll around Apple's $14,000 watch has turned into a blank stare, it's time for a little bit of nostalgia. Apple is not new to this game of selling seemingly everyday gadgets for ridiculous dollar amounts. The Twentieth Anniversary Macintosh (TAM) wrote the rules nearly 20 years ago.
Video: At the South by Southwest festival in Austin, TX, audiences are watching the debut of a new CNN documentary called Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine. It's about Jobs' life, and how he influenced tech culture. The film's director, Alex Gibney, is also known for his controversial documentary about Scientology.
