And wouldn’t you know it, it’s one of two things that none of us can avoid: taxes (with the... Read more...
Apple's catching some flak over its new Smart Battery Case for iPhone 6s devices. It's a $99 case that promises to bump talk time up to 25 hours, Internet use up to 18 hours (on LTE), and video playback up to 20 hours, but at the expense of an unsightly bulge on its backside, to name one of the complaints. What does Apple CEO Tim Cook think Read more...

Wall Street is a fickle bunch; they build you up only to knock you down just as quickly. Such is the case for Apple, which this afternoon reported its fiscal Q3 2015 earnings.
