Jobs tops CNBC's "most influential" list and more news for April 29, 2014
A free iPhone voice & data plan (no, really), Steve Jobs back in the news and a reminder that there's a lot more to do in this world that stare at your phone. Here's this afternoon's Apple news.
CNBC has compiled a list of the most influential business leader of the last 25 years, and Steve Jobs is at the top. "More than any other member of our group of extraordinary entrepreneurs and executives-all outstanding leaders-his vision spurred changes far beyond his industry and put an indelible stamp on the wider culture," the magazine wrote. In the number two spot is Steve's former rival, Bill Gates.
FreedomPop has announced free voice and data plan for iPhone. The offer is location-specific so enter your zip code and physical address to see if you qualify. If so, you've got a choice: buy a refurbished 16 GB iPhone 5 (US$349) or BYO Sprint-ready iPhone 4, 4s, or 5.
Finally, a gentle reminder that not everything is available in the App Store. So power down once in a while.
