Disrupted, by Dan Lyons is more than just a takedown of startup HubSpot.

It's been hardly a week since since the publication of his book Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Start-Up Bubble, but Dan Lyons sounds tired. While Disrupted is largely Lyons' memoir of a career transition, his accounts of day-to-day life at HubSpot are far from flattering. When Lyons joined the company in 2013, HubSpot was a high-flying startup ramping up for its IPO. (With the exception of Halligan and Shah, Lyons uses pseudonyms in the place of actual names for all HubSpot employees, though he does name additional names in the epilogue.) But spending time in the Bay Area whetted Lyons' curiosity about joining a high-potential startup for the sake of cashing in.

Forget drawing: Want to take notes on your iPad or annotate documents with the Apple Pencil? These might be my top apps for handwriting, but I bet you have your own picks, iMore readers. Whink - See at App StoreFor all-purpose notes: NotabilityWhen it comes to excellent multipurpose handwriting apps, you'd be hard-pressed not to find Notability at the top of most lists.

The best iOS apps for taking notes with Apple Pencil + iPad Pro

Prior to iOS 9, Apple’s Notes app was pretty lackluster in comparison to many note taking apps on iOS. Notability – $3.99Notes PlusNotes Plus is another solid note taking app with iPad Pro and Apple Pencil optimizations. Writing with an Apple Pencil on an iPad Pro is nearly as easy as writing on actual paper. Personally, after trying all of these apps, I think GoodNotes 4 is the most solid choice for iPad Pro note taking. Penultimate – FreeApple NotesYou can’t discuss note taking apps without mentioning Apple’s own Notes app that comes pre-installed on every iOS device.

32 Tech Giants Are Backing Apple in its Fight Against the FBI

As the case goes forward, the US government will be fighting not just Apple, but the entire US tech industry. 32 of the world’s largest internet, social media, and technology companies have united behind Apple, as the Cupertino-based tech giant fights the FBI’s demands to unlock the phone of Syed Farook, one of the San Bernardino shooters. The two new filings join a long list of law professors, civil liberties activists, and consumer groups supporting Apple in the case. A 31-page brief, submitted by Amazon, Box, Cisco, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, Nest, Pinterest, Slack, Snapchat, WhatsApp, and Yahoo, also denounces the invocation of the All Writs Act. If Apple obeys the FBI’s order, it would set a dangerous precedent for the future, both briefs claim.

My favorite tech items of 2015 [Alan]

When you need portable then you'd be hard-pressed to beat the Ultimate Ears, a brand of Logitech, UE Boom 2, which is a slight update to the original model. It's a bit large, but not so big that it isn't portable. You'll need a hub and the right bulbs -- I use a Wink Hub and GE Link bulbs. It was typical year filled with a few good items and some worth forgetting. It's thin and light, but has a very large screen size, which is my preference in any phone.

"In trying to get actual work done on the Pixel C, there were two part of the experience that I found problematic.
