Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump unveiled a new plan should he win the election: make Apple to move all of its product manufacturing into the United States. Mr. Trump shared his idea during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day speech at Liberty University on Monday. So much for the capitalist spirit.
Trip Chowdry is out in force with a bold new pronouncement. Investors are fed up Tim Cook and the "culture of bozos" he has created at Apple. Bryan Chaffin takes a look at this nonsense.
Apple's Macintosh is crushing the PC industry according to new reports on Tuesday from Gartner and IDC. Both companies show that Apple was the lone computer maker to see year-over-year gains in unit sales, while the rest of the industry took a faceplant.
London newspaper The Telegraph reported Tuesday that Apple was working on a "simple tool" that would make it easy for iOS users to move their contacts, music, and photos to Android. The newspaper said Apple had agreed to do so under pressure from the European Commission (EC), but Re/code then reported that Apple flatly denied the story. Bryan Chaffin walks us through what it all means.
Apple has some big features coming to iOS, but they won't be holding out until iOS 10 is released, presumably some time this fall. Instead, they're coming in iOS 9.3 as a mid-cycle update which isn't Apple's typical modus operandi.
Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk told the BBC that Apple's unannounced car—Project Titan—was an "open secret." In an interview published Monday, Mr. Musk said that Apple's participation in the electric car market will "expand the industry."

BlackBerry CEO John Chen has some thoughts on encryption and privacy, or at least it sounds like he does. Regardless, he takes a swipe at Apple and left Bryan Chaffin wondering exactly what Mr. Chen's point really was.
A pair of reports from DigiTimes are reporting dueling narratives: the first is that a new Apple R&D facility in Taiwan is developing next-generation micro-LED technology for future displays. The second claims that Apple is using the facility to develop flexible organic light-emitting diode (flexible OLED) displays.
Apple has been operating a research and development facility outside Taipei, Taiwan, for developing its own displays. In a feat of old fashioned gumshoe journalism, Bloomberg reported that Apple has some 50 engineers and other employees at the production laboratory—Bloomberg called it a "secret" facility, though it might be more accurate to call it low profile.
