At Apple, Tim Cook leads a quiet cultural revolution (ET)
Shortly after signing on as chief operating officer at Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), Sheryl Sandberg was looking to connect with people in a similar role – No. 2 to a brilliant and passionate young founder. She called Tim Cook. “He basically explained nicely that my job was to do the things that Mark (Zuckerberg) did not want to focus on as much,” Sandberg said of the 2007 meeting that lasted several hours with the chief operating officer of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).

Should this Concern Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Google Inc (GOOG)?

Google’s new phone underwhelms (BostonGlobe)
What exactly is an Android phone? It depends on which brand is in your pocket. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) strictly standardizes the iPhone’s software and hardware, but Android phone makers HTC, Samsung, and LG each serve up starkly different devices. Then last year Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), the creator of Android software, bought Motorola Mobility, the hardware company that invented the cellphone. At last, Google could build the definitive Android phone, a seamless blend of hardware and software. I expected to be happily blown away by the results.

Microsoft offers free Surface tablets to schools making use of Bing (IVCPost)
The move would be a part of Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)‘s new program called Bing for Schools, as announced on Wednesday. Microsoft would provide a version of Bing that lacks advertisements and features a strict refinement of adult content. Currently, Microsoft’s discounted school rate is USD249 for each tablet. Signing up for the reward credit program of Bing would also aid a school in getting a free Surface RT tablet. …Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) was recently forced to reduce the price of its tablets. Last month, it reported a USD900 million writedown in Surface inventory in the company’s fourth quarter fiscal statements.

Apple’s grip on China tablet market loosens (ECNS)
Apple’s grip on China’s tablet market has loosened as Asian tech companies increase sales with cheaper Android tablet computers, a market report showed Thursday. Dickie Chang, senior market analyst at research firm IDC, said Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) supplied 28 percent of tablet computers in China during the April-June quarter, down from 49 percent dominance a year earlier. The iPad maker was still the biggest tablet supplier in China, its key growth engine, but its momentum has slowed.

Why Web TV Skeptic Mark Cuban Thinks Google Can Make the NFL Work on the Web (AllThingsD)
If Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) ends up getting the rights to stream NFL games over the Web, could the Web handle it? That is: Is America’s Internet infrastructure capable of letting millions of people watch the same football games, at the same time, while delivering a TV-quality picture? We’ve seen hints that the Web is now up to the challenge, but for now we don’t really have an answer. We won’t know until someone tries. Still, I figured it would be worth asking some folks who know a bit about Web video and TV. So I started with Mark Cuban.
