Does the name "Leo Apotheker" ring a bell? How about Meg Whitman? ...Surely you've heard of "Hewlett-Packard" at least, right? These three names are tied together and have all come up in the news today.
Leo Apotheker has been the CEO of HP for the past year, until he stepped down earlier today and handed the reins over to Meg Whitman. For those who aren't sure who she is, Whitman was essential in eBay gaining popularity to becoming the giant it is today; she also ran for Governor of California in 2010, but eventually lost that race. Now, as the new CEO of HP, she'll be (hopefully) providing her ebay'ing business background to the falling company.
What does this mean for HP? According to several sources, they won't be changing their game plan: webOS is still out and they'll need some fresh juice to get the ball rolling again. We'll see if Whitman is the right person for that in the upcoming months.

Windows-fans out there got a taste of Christmas early this year: Microsoft previewed their latest rendition of Windows 8 earlier today during the BUILD Developer Conference.
One of the alluring facts about Windows 8 is that it'll be available and fully-functional on tablets, but that much was already known. Today did confirm a rumor, though - ARM-based processors will be compatible with Windows 8. This is bound to open up a slew of possibilities for Microsoft within the tablet market, which may just give it a fighting edge needed in the battle against an iPad-held market.
The interface on the tablet-version of Windows 8 is quite simple: it'll utilize what Microsoft calls the "Metro-style" interface, which is similar to Windows Phone 7. A series of tiles make up the screen, which can be swiped, tapped and pinched to change in size, depending on your preferences. The best part of this, though, is that the Metro-UI is not limited to touch-screen tablets, so expect to see these colorful, adjustable tiles on your PC's too.
On the actual developer side of things, Microsoft showed just how easy creating an app could be. One app only had 58 lines of code in it. This simplicity could help to win over developers for the upcoming OS.

Oh boy. The picture above is enough to cause commotion in the stock market, along with panic in the minds of Apple fanboys (and fangirls, of course), all because a single person has turned in their resignation letter. Then again, who wouldn't immediately panic when the infamous Steve Jobs decides to step down as Apple's CEO?
However, some rational thinking might help people to realize that not all is lost with the company of forbidden fruits. Back in 2009, Jobs left temporarily for medical reasons and was succeeded by Tim Cook. The same thing happened earlier this year and Cook has been running Apple on a day-to-day basis since January 17.
Also, according to Jobs' resignation letter, he won't actually be leaving Apple. "I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee." And the Board has approved just that; Jobs' new position actually gives him a little bit more flexibility, while still having a hand in the direction that Apple heads towards.
As expected, Apple's stock price dropped by 5% overnight. But when there's an Earthquake, don't you run and tell everyone first before acknowledging that it was a 1.5 magnitude? After the initial shock wears off, people will realize that Apple is still making their iPods, iPhones and iPads.
While it's true that Jobs had a certain epic stage performing ability that may be hard to recreate by his successor, it doesn't mean production will stop. We'll see how Cook carries on as the new permanent CEO - he may have had the role before, but now he officially has the world watching him.
Check out Jobs' full resignation letter below:

With the right gadgets in hand, the Duracell Powerpack 600 can help provide the first three of those, especially in today's society when smartphones and computers are prevalent in families.
