Jim Henson passed away 24 years ago today and Kelly explains why he's such a big deal. For starters, Apple thought highly enough to include him its series of Think Different posters.
Ever since the first Apple retail stores opened in May of 2001 in Tysons Corner, VA and the Glendale Galleria, CA, new stores have been opening on a regular basis with the total in the U.S. now exceeding 250. At what point does adding new stores in the U.S. no longer make sense?
Apple has won another court battle with Samsung over patent infringement, but the reward was small and hasn't slowed Samsung down at all. How might these pyrrhic victories affect Apple's long term thinking? Hint. Think sapphire.
Net Neutrality is a big issue, and it gets complicated fast. Kelly breaks down why it's a good thing, and what you (yes you!) can do to help preserve it.
Two U.S. juries have found that Samsung willfully copied Apple innovations and technologies, and those cases established that Samsung wilfully and deliberately set out to copy the iPhone.

This month marks the 50th anniversary of the 1964 World’s Fair in New York. Some people know it because they attended, and some know it only from a mention by They Might Be Giants. However you know it, the New York World’s Fair was an impressive event, and Kelly Guimont rounded up some links.
Apple's iPad market share is slowly being diluted. And yet customers love their iPads and do amazing things with them. Those iPads also greatly dominate Web traffic. It's a great paradox, but John Martellaro thinks he has part of the answer.
Apple's response to all the Apple v Samsung press lately has appeared in some US newspapers today in the form of a full-page cleverly worded ad about their environmental achievements.
According to analyst projections, the growth in sales of Apple's iPad has come to a halt. Why might that be? John Martellaro looks at some things Apple could have done differently and sizes them up.
