  • First ASCI study finds Samsung flagships barely edging out iPhone
    A new study focusing only on smartphones by the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) has ranked two premier Samsung smartphones — the Galaxy S III and the Galaxy Note 2 — ahead of Apple’s iPhone various iPhone models in a new survey of 2,500 buyers. The results have a number of odd notes to them, giving high scores to mostly older models and entirely omitting recent entries such as the HTC One, BlackBerry Z10 and Samsung Galaxy S4; ranking all three iPhone models as essentially equal when the iPhone 4 is now three years old; and using the exact same vaguely-defined methodology as a re
        

  • AAPL tops $450 for first time since mid-May
    Though both the S&P and Dow Jones averages rose little on Tuesday, Apple stock rose 1.2 percent to close at $453.32 — the first time the stock has closed over $450 since mid-May, and on the heels of the revelation that Apple CEO Tim Cook is again in China, talking to current partners and possibly trying to break the logjam that has kept the iPhone out of China’s largest carrier, China Mobile.

  • Apple opening new Italian store this weekend in Rimini

Instead titles must be bought via the web, the Kindle hardware, or one of the other Kindle apps for platforms like Android and Windows Phone.

    An alleged "motherboard" from an iPhone 5S has turned up at a Chinese repair shop called iHospital.

It is clearly possible that both leaked boards were fakes, but the new photos show that the boards are in production (since they are pictured as a pair in a snap-out card) and further support the reports that the iPhone 5S will sport multiple internal improvements, including the camera and graphics.

The polling company also noted that consumers placed Apple in the top 30 of all 1,500 brands evaluated for "momentum," indicating its good relationship with consumers will continue into the future.

Even though it wouldn’t directly affect Verizon — which has never sold the 3G or 3GS, and carries a different model of the 4 — Milch claims that the ban would set a bad precedent.

  • Aftermath: Apple’s guidance better, so analyst predictions better too
    Before any Apple quarterly financial conference call — starting weeks before the end of the quarter — pundits and analysts offer their educated guesses on how well Apple will do or did in both sales and revenue. Traditionally, Apple gave very conservative guidance and hedged its bets, and analysts were often blown away by the actual results. After years of second-guessing, Apple offered to provide what it felt was the most probable truthful guidance. It took a while, but analysts are paying attention — and for this quarter, the pros mostly got it right.

  • Arianna Huffington: Inside the Twitterverse
    Win the Moment. That’s the theme of the two-day conference that Twitter is holding for its employees in San Francisco, where I just spoke. In many ways, it’s a surprisingly modest topic, since whether Twitter has won the moment is not very much in doubt. Like anything that’s so closely intertwined with humanity, Twitter can be funny, angry, happy, messy, selfish, and selfless. It can help topple governments, as it did during the Arab Spring. It can serve as a communication lifeline, as it did during the earthquake and tsunami in Fukushima. And it can make watching the red carpet a lot more fun. Humans are built for communication, and anything that helps fill that insatiable need is going to take off. We’re also built for narrative, and, even at 140 characters, Twitter can tap into that, too. Adam Bain, Twitter’s president of global revenue, once said that "Twitter is a series of ‘now moments’ across the world." But add up an accumulating series of now moments, and what you have is, well, history.

  • Cook: China market still a ‘huge opportunity’ for Apple, iOS
    On paper, Apple’s sales report from China didn’t look that great this quarter. The revenue from most of the APAC region, in fact, was down. For the "greater China" market, revenues was down 14 percent year-over-year and a whopping 43 percent from last quarter. However, just as Apple’s iPad sales looked a lot better after CEO Tim Cook explained that inventory levels were responsible for 80 percent of the 1.9 million-unit drop, so China’s figures look a lot less bad when accounting for both inventory factors and regional economic woes.

    While some segments of Apple’s hardware line did less well — or in at least one case considerably better — than expected, the company’s quieter but steady growth in cloud-based services ranging from iTunes Stores to iCloud-based services continues to become increasingly important in retaining and attracting buyers. Apple now has over 320 million iCloud accounts, up from 250 million six months ago, and push notifications have doubled during the same period to over eight trillion. Users of iOS also pushed the App Store to new highs in downloads and revenues.

    I was two years into a master’s degree in couples and family therapy only to learn that I didn’t want to study couples and family therapy. About this time last year, I realized just how much I wanted to become a Ruby on Rails developer. Working with clients and doing paperwork in the mental health field, which I started over six years ago, had become emotionally draining — and my husband, a Ruby on Rails developer at a small start-up, seemed to be continuously renewed each day in his work. So, I decided to go out on a limb and attempt to change companies and careers. Fortunately, many companies today are in search of the skills a developer has.
  • Apple profits diminished to $6.9 billion in Q3, but iPhone sales up
    Apple has formally released the results of its fiscal third quarter, which ended in late June. Although revenues rose slightly year-over-year to $35.3 billion, net income fell from $8.8 billion to $6.9 billion. In terms of EPS, Apple slid from $9.32 per share to $7.47. Gross profit margins likewise sank, shifting from 42.8 percent to 36.9 percent. To the surprise of analysts, iPhone sales were up significantly — from about 26 million to 31.2 million, but Macs and the iPad fared less well. Mac sales declined from 4 million to 3.8 million, while the iPad dipped from 17 million units to 14.6 mil
