The Apple inspirational note left of the desk of Instagram user “M” and discovered by New York Times columnist Nick Bilton, sums what it means to be an Apple employee.
Basically, “Team Apple! F**k yeah!”
The Instagrammer who posted the photo of the note included these words: “What greets you on your first day at Apple. I’ve had this taped to my dresser for two years. Words to live by.”
The letter left on the desk of new Apple hires reads as follows, according to “M’s” image:
There’s work and there’s your life’s work.

“The Encyclopaedia Britannica”, the world’s most famous print encyclopedia, has announced that after 244 years in print, it is no longer going to make new physical copies of its flagship publication. The 32-volume, $1,395 edition that the Chicago-based company put out in 2010 was its last; future versions will live entirely online.This is an announcement that had been coming - according to the Financial Times, only 8,500 copies of the most recent edition were printed. The first edition appeared in 1768, in Scotland.
Media Decoder, the New York Times blog, broke the story this afternoon, quoting Jorge Cauz, president of the Encyclopaedia Britannica Inc., as saying “Some people will feel sad about it and nostalgic about it. But we have a better tool now. The website is continuously updated, it’s much more expansive and it has multimedia.”

Once upon a time, back in November of last year, the New York Times reported that the Walt Disney Company and Google’s YouTube had struck a deal: the pair would spend $10 million to $15 million to create an original video series that would be featured on Disney’s YouTube channel.
An awesome added bonus: Disney would feature full-length episodes from some of its most popular television series on YouTube — for free.
