Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates and Apple cofounder Steve Jobs began building their companies right around the same time, and it was a natural catalyst for their rivalry.  While the two founders had periods of civility, at other times, they were at each other's throats.  Jobs insulted Gates' taste and imagination, while Gates once described Jobs as "weirdly flawed as a human being." But the two execs appeared to get along better later in life, and when Jobs died in 2011, Gates said that they "spurred each other on, even as competitors." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs never quite got along. Over the course of 30-plus years, the two went from cautious allies to bitter rivals to something almost approaching friends — sometimes, they were all three at the same time. It seems unlikely that Apple would be where it is today without Microsoft, or Microsoft without Apple. Here's the history of the love-hate relationship between Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.SEE ALSO: Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk have feuded for over a decade about space travel. Here are 9 rivalries between some of the world's biggest tech CEOs. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs weren't always enemies — Microsoft made software early on for the mega-popular Apple II PC, and Gates would routinely fly down to Cupertino to see what Apple was working on. Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson In the early '80s, Jobs flew up to Washington to sell Gates on the possibility of making Microsoft software for the Apple Macintosh computer, with its revolutionary graphical user interface. Gates wasn't particularly impressed with what he saw as a limited platform — or Jobs' attitude. Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson "It was kind of a weird seduction visit where Steve was saying we don't really need you and we're doing this great thing, and it's under the cover. He's in his Steve Jobs sales mode, but kind of the sales mode that also says, 'I don't need you, but I might let you be involved,'" Gates later said. Source: Fortune Still, Gates appeared alongside Jobs in a 1983 video — a "Dating Game" riff — screened for Apple employees ahead of the Macintosh's launch. In that video, Gates compliments the Mac, saying that it "really captures people's imagination." Source: Business Insider Microsoft and Apple worked hand-in-hand for the first few years of the Macintosh. At one point, Gates quipped that he had more people working on the Mac than Jobs did. Source: Yahoo Their relationship, already kind of rocky, fell apart when Microsoft announced the first version of Windows in 1985. A furious Jobs accused Gates and Microsoft of ripping off the Macintosh. But Gates didn't care — he knew that graphical interfaces would be big, and didn't think Apple had the exclusive rights to the idea. Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson Besides, Gates knew full well that Apple took the idea for the graphical interface from the Xerox PARC labs, a research institution they both admired. Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson When Jobs accused Gates of stealing the idea, he famously answered: "Well, Steve, I think there's more than one way of looking at it. I think it's more like we both had this rich neighbor named Xerox and I broke into his house to steal the TV set and found out that you had already stolen it." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson From there, the gloves were off between the two founders. "They just ripped us off completely, because Gates has no shame," Jobs once said. To which Gates replied: "If he believes that, he really has entered into one of his own reality distortion fields." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson Jobs thought that Gates was a stick in the mud, far too focused on business. "He’d be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson Gates said Jobs was "fundamentally odd" and "weirdly flawed as a human being." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson But Gates respected Jobs' knack for design: "He really never knew much about technology, but he had an amazing instinct for what works." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson In 1985, Steve Jobs resigned from Apple after a power shift to start his own computer company, NeXT. But even though Jobs was no longer working for Microsoft's biggest competitor, it didn't improve relations between the two. Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson Jobs thought that if NeXT lost and Microsoft Windows won, "we are going to enter a computer Dark Ages for about 20 years," he told Playboy in 1985. Source: The Telegraph Still, Windows was winning. By the late '80s, it became clear that Microsoft was just about unstoppable on the PC. Fast-forward to 1996, when Jobs appeared in a PBS documentary called "Triumph of the Nerds" and ripped into Gates and Microsoft, saying that they made "third-rate products." Source: PBS Jobs went on in that same documentary: "The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste. And I don't mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don't think of original ideas, and they don't bring much culture into their products." Source: PBS By the late '90s, Apple was in serious danger of going under. When then-Apple CEO Gil Amelio moved to buy NeXT in 1996 and bring Jobs back to Apple, Gates tried to talk him out of it. Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson Gates said this to Amelio: "I know his technology, it's nothing but a warmed-over UNIX, and you'll never be able to make it work on your machines. Don't you understand that Steve doesn't know anything about technology? He's just a super salesman. I can't believe you're making such a stupid decision." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson But by 1997, Jobs was Apple's CEO. At his first Macworld keynote, he announced that he had accepted an investment from Microsoft to keep Apple afloat. Bill Gates appeared on a huge screen via satellite link. The audience booed. Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson Gates clearly admired Jobs, even if they didn't always see eye-to-eye. When Apple introduced iTunes, Gates sent an internal email to Microsoft that said, "Steve Jobs' ability to focus in on a few things that count, get people who get user interface right, and market things as revolutionary are amazing things." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson When Apple introduced the iPod in 2001, Gates sent another email: "I think we need some plan to prove that, even though Jobs has us a bit flat footed again, we can move quick and both match and do stuff better." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson But Jobs was still pretty down on Microsoft, especially after Steve Ballmer took over from Bill Gates as CEO in 2000. "They've clearly fallen from their dominance. They've become mostly irrelevant," Jobs once said. "I don't think anything will change at Microsoft as long as Ballmer is running it." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson Conversely, Gates thought much of Apple's post-iPhone success came from Jobs himself, and not from Apple's "closed" philosophy. "The integrated approach works well when Steve is at the helm. But it doesn't mean it will win many rounds in the future," Gates said. Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson And Gates didn't think too much of the iPad. "[I]t's not like I sit there and feel the same way I did with iPhone where I say, 'Oh my God, Microsoft didn't aim high enough.'" Source: CBS MoneyWatch But Jobs didn't think much of the Windows ecosystem either: "Of course, his fragmented model worked, but it didn't make really great products. It produced crappy products." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson Jobs didn't even have any mercy when Gates decided to quit Microsoft in 2006 to focus more on his foundation. "Bill is basically unimaginative and has never invented anything, which is why I think he's more comfortable now in philanthropy than technology," Jobs said. Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson Still, in a weird way, the two men clearly respected each other. Appearing on stage together at the 2007 AllThingsD conference, Gates said, "I’d give a lot to have Steve’s taste." Source: The Wall Street Journal And Jobs once said, "I admire him for the company he built — it’s impressive — and I enjoyed working with him. He’s bright and actually has a good sense of humor." Source: "Steve Jobs" by Walter Isaacson After Jobs died, Gates said, "I respect Steve, we got to work together. We spurred each other on, even as competitors. None of [what he said] bothers me at all." Source: Yahoo Ultimately, both men claim quite a legacy: Jobs built Apple into what is now the world's most valuable company, while Gates is the second-richest person on Earth.

Strong internal communication tools are paramount to delivering targeted and relevant information to remote employees everywhere.  These five tech platforms are proving to be major players in the employee communications software market, which is expected to grow to $1.6 billion in the next five years, Research Dive predicts.  The platforms innovatively mirror the way people consume content outside of work with internal social media, hyper-personalized content, and built-in engagement analytics.  "The need for this type of solution has definitely been validated," Smarp CMO Bruno Bin said. "The ecosystem is so complex for communications technology that these platforms do different things in different ways. It's a really tough place to navigate." Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. In the never-ending battle to get employees' attention, the look and feel of communications inside large companies now mirrors the external campaigns that marketers use to engage and sell to customers. The approach has given rise to a new category of employee communication software. "Internal communications and employee communications needs to be more like the external world," said Bruno Bin, CMO of internal communications platform Smarp. "There's a huge demand now for employee communications, and the primary goal is to make sure employees get information that's targeted, relevant, and timely at the individual level." The employee communications software market accounted for $527 million in 2018 and is expected to grow to $1.6 billion over the next five years, according to research firm Research Dive. The field is crowded, with a tool existing for every potential communication pain point for every type of worker. However, here are a few major players that stand out for their visibility in the marketplace, innovations, and likely staying power. Smarp Smarp, headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, delivers curated information to its customer's employees by customizing the content that each user sees or receives.  By integrating with a company's digital assets — including intranet, email, Slack, or Yammer — Smarp is able to tailor content for each employee by their location, division, role, expertise, or other key factors. Then, it delivers the customized content over email, mobile app, social media feed, newsletter, or other channels. Smarp's technology also allows employees to suggest new content or provide material that can then be shared across the organization or with specific groups. Smarp's "content booster" capability helps companies expand their reach and foster conversations internally and, in some cases, externally, too.  Since launching in 2011, the platform reported serving around four million employees worldwide through customers such as Amazon, Marriott, KPMG, and BDO.  During the pandemic, clients that used Smarp for crisis communications were able to adjust content in real time, Bin said. Multinationals, for example, whose employees experienced COVID-19 phases at different points in time, were able to communicate policies pertaining to their specific locations. Using AI-enabled content and aggregators, Bin added, employees received news and policy updates relevant to them, while Smarp's analytics helped communicators adjust the content, formats, and processes for particular groups. "One client might see the London team likes video content better," Bin said, describing a typical scenario. "If you want the London team to engage with safety information, then we need to create videos. That's one actionable insight." Bin said the company's pipeline of sales prospects in the first quarter grew by 400%. When lockdowns were announced, Smarp saw a 160% average increase in new users each week, while first quarter sales rose by 91% year over year. "The need for this type of solution has definitely been validated," Bin said. "The ecosystem is so complex for communications technology that these platforms do different things in different ways. It's a really tough place to navigate." SnapComms New Zealand-based SnapComms specializes in providing targeted tools, templates, and widgets to meet specific audience needs. Its solutions range from lock-screen messages to tickers and quizzes, depending on a customer's immediate needs and goals. Since its founding in 2007, SnapComms said it's risen to serve 2.5 million paid enterprise users in more than 75 countries. Between March and May 2020, traffic to SnapComms' website was twice the average for the prior 12 months, said General Manager Philip Nunn, and its average sales doubled compared to the end of 2019. With employees not opening emails or visiting intranets as much as leaders would like, SnapComms saw an opportunity to both reduce email overload and drive traffic to existing content on a company's sites. "What we've all seen is the need for people to communicate effectively, quickly, and consistently," Nunn said. "But you need a way to cut through that noise, to get information to the right employee, at the right time, in the right way." SnapComms specializes in pushing information right onto desktops, mobile devices, and digital billboards. To reach employees, clients release critical information through pop-up alerts, scrolling tickers, wallpapers, and screensavers.  The company developed nearly 30 content templates during the pandemic, such as work-from-home equipment survey checklists and hand hygiene illustrations as screensavers, Nunn said.  Having boilerplate content that companies could then customize helped leaders communicate about critical subjects quicker, Nunn said. "The employee has a lot of power in terms of what they want to read," Nunn said. "They're used to snackable content. If your proposition doesn't look like that, then it's not going to be read." Workplace from Facebook Workplace from Facebook first launched in 2016 with the same posting and commenting features people used on Facebook. At the time, Yammer by Microsoft led the pack for enterprise social media. Since then, Facebook's employee communications platform has evolved, much as its parent company has. It now provides groups, live video broadcasting, video and audio calls, and personalized news feeds. Each customer owns its employee data, reporting tools, and content, said Julien Lesaicherre, director of global sales and customer success at Workplace from Facebook.   "Think of Workplace as a fast-growing startup within Facebook," Lesaicherre said. "Workplace is a comms tool for businesses wrapped in social DNA. We're leveraging the best of Facebook. We adapt the code and security foundations for Workplace." Workplace also provides a knowledge library, HR compliance tools, and polls and surveys. For companies with offices around the globe, captions in multiple languages, translations, and caption editing are also connecting colleagues better and more frequently. "It's something we're really proud of because what we want to do is break down the silos between people," Lesaicherre said. "Internal communications has never been so important. That's the message we hear both from internal communications people and CXOs [chief experience officers]."  In response to the pandemic, Lesaicherre said Workplace prioritized connecting frontline workers with other members of the organization through its platform. For workers who don't have email addresses, for example, Workplace provided unique codes they could use to access the platform.  Some companies that needed to connect remotely moved quickly to deploy Workplace within days to thousands of employees, Lesaicherre said. That led to Workplace hitting five million paid users at the end of the first quarter, up from three million in October 2019.  Workplace has since rolled out Workplace Rooms, which is similar to Zoom Rooms, and voice and HD video calls. It adapted the Portal videoconference tool, which has a smart camera that moves with the speaker, for Workplace in June. And it plans to adapt Oculus for Business to provide VR-enabled connections with coworkers.  Slack When Slack first came along in 2013, it fit tidily into the workforce collaboration category. Quickly enough, Slack became the place to go for water-cooler conversations and tidbits usually shared between colleagues bumping into each other in the office. Conversations combined with collaborations have turned Slack into the default employee engagement tool for many companies, from large enterprises to small businesses. With shelter-in-place orders, in addition to colleague-to-colleague interactions, groups that typically communicated in email or in person are also using the platform more. Leaders are using it to post announcements or explain key changes. Mission-critical departments, such as facilities and security, have created Slack channels to post vital information or answer questions.  Slack wrapped up the year's first quarter with more than 90,000 net new organizations on its free and paid plans, the company said, and its revenue hit a record $201.7 million for the quarter, an increase of 50% year over year. As the workforce went virtual, people connected to Slack for more than 10 hours per day, the company reported. Time spent actively using Slack per day went from 90 minutes at the end of Q4 2019 to 120 minutes by the end of Q1 2020.  "It's powerful to see how quickly, easily, and seamlessly Slack has become our 'office' — regardless of where in the world our employees are based," said Amanda Atkins, director of internal communications at Slack. "All the communication, collaboration, announcements, discussions, brainstorming, and even social interaction that may typically happen in an office setting can fully happen in Slack." Across the globe, Slack users have used emojis 80% more than they did before shelter-in-place orders went into effect, Atkins said. Another popular feature is the Workflow Builder to automate routine processes, of which 10 million have run.  Simpplr  In June, Simpplr nabbed a top spot in Forrester Research's report of the top 12 intranet platforms that matter most. It signified that the six-year-old Silicon Valley company's bet on building a cloud-based hub for all "top-down" information has paid off. "We looked at communications stack and we realized that while email and Slack are great, they're noisy places," said Sam Keninger, Simpplr's vice president of marketing. "You need a space where you control and curate the message, and you make it universally accessible to everybody." Keninger said that it's critical for employees to consume and acknowledge the messages coming from senior leaders because the content covers essential material such as health and safety protocols and specific requirements for working virtually. "When you need compliance or to know the company's stance on Black Lives Matter, 100% readership matters," Keninger said. Companies have used Simpplr to advance those communications at a greater pace than ever before. Compared to the same period in 2019, the level of activity on Simpplr platforms has doubled, the company reported. The company also saw a 20% to 40% uptick each month since March of people using its intranets.  Simpplr has also been fast-tracking deployments for companies that reached out in need of a solution immediately, he said. Topa Equities, for example, had a daylong sales cycle and went live a few days later. "I truly believe that we went through a one-way door in March, and we're not going back," Keninger said. "If I'm the CEO, the first thing is to please my shareholders. The next important thing is to communicate and engage my employees."SEE ALSO: PR and communications experts reveal how companies can level up their internal comms to keep employees happy and engaged NOW READ: CEOs and executives who've been managing remote teams for years share the tools they use to keep their employees motivated and happy Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why Pikes Peak is the most dangerous racetrack in America

(American Institute of Physics) As we use resources to power massive computer farms and process digital information, our technological progress is redistributing Earth's matter from physical atoms to digital information. Eventually, we will reach a point of full saturation, a period in our evolution in which digital bits will outnumber atoms on Earth, a world "mostly computer simulated and dominated by digital bits and computer code," according to an article published in AIP Advances.

Everything in Python is an object, or so the saying goes. If you want to create your own custom objects, with their own properties and methods, you use Python’s class object to make that happen. But creating classes in Python sometimes means writing loads of repetitive, boilerplate code to set up the class instance from the parameters passed to it or to create common functions like comparison operators.Dataclasses, introduced in Python 3.7 (and backported to Python 3.6), provide a handy way to make classes less verbose. Many of the common things you do in a class, like instantiating properties from the arguments passed to the class, can be reduced to a few basic instructions.To read this article in full, please click here

Today, the Public Interest Registry (PIR), which maintains the .org top-level domain, announced that it will be acquired by Ethos Capital, a private equity firm (via Domain Name Wire).This move will make PIR, previously a non-profit domain registry, officially part of a for-profit company — which certainly seems at odds with what .org might represent to some.Originally, “.org” was an alternative to the “.com” that was earmarked for commercial entities, which lent itself to non-profit use.That’s not all: On June 30th, ICANN, the non-profit that oversees all domain names on the internet, agreed to remove price caps on rates for .org domain names — which were previously pretty cheap.Seems like something a for-profit company might want.Removing price caps wasn’t exactly a popular idea when it was first proposed on March 18th.
