This afternoon’s news are all over the place. Tim Cook is comes out of the closet, Lenovo’s Motorola acquisition finally closed and there’s a new Square Enix game for you to enjoy. What a day!
Being the CEO of Apple, one of the biggest tech companies in the world, is definitely no easy feat. Tim Cook has a responsibility many of us wouldn’t be able to carry on our shoulders, and much of his privacy is probably compromised.
Despite being in the spotlight, Cook has managed to keep the focus on Apple’s products instead of him. Rumors of his sexual orientation started spreading since he took Steve Jobs’ position at Apple.
Most of us were indifferent about it. After all, it’s really none of our business who he prefers to love, but today he takes a step forward and reveals his sexual orientation to the public. He states he is “proud to be gay” and considers it being “among the greatest gifts God has given him”.
Opinion: Tim Cook definitely took this step knowing it would be met with a mixture of opinions. Some may consider it gossip, but I think he is doing something great. It’s important to show the industry that being different is a gift. The tech industry, as well as the rest of the world can benefit from people of different backgrounds. The gender gap is a hot topic in the tech community, and I believe Tim Cook is inspiring a better future for the industry.
Acquiring a $2.91 billion company is no easy process. It takes time and a lot of steps, which is why today marks an important date for Motorola and Lenovo. Lenovo’s acquisition of Motorola has finally concluded.
Motorola, “a Lenovo company”, is now placed under Lenovo’s wing as a subsidiary of the company. Branding will stay intact until further notice. Together they plan to grow and expand their influence in a global scale.
Opinion: What is next? We can only guess. But both Motorola and Lenovo are experts in their own departments. Maybe together they can further conquer the industry and new markets!
RPG fans can attest to Square Enix’s collection, which is full of gaming classics and all-time legendary titles. Their RPG games are loved by many, and Square Enix knows it. This is why they have been slowly feeding us old Square Enix titles and porting them to mobile platforms, where they are sold for pretty hefty prices.
Today, Square Enix brings Secret of Mana to Android, a 1990’s classic many of us played during our childhood. You can relive the old days by buying the game at the Google Play Store, where you will have to pocket out $9 for the game.
Opinion: $9 dollars for a mobile game that is over 20 years old seems a bit unreasonable, but Square Enix’s fans (including me) will pay that and more for these games. Also, when are we getting that Final Fantasy 7 port? In another decade?
