Forbes contributor Chuck Jones spelled out his predictions about Apple’s March quarter in a reasonable sounding piece based on Apple's own guidance and reality. Kelly is very confused about how this got posted.
Black boxes for delivering video content are flooding the market, and, as fast as they appear, they're updated with new designs. Is it just a phase the industry is going through? Where is this all leading? More importantly, how can Apple differentiate itself?
The honeymoon has started. Microsoft's new CEO, Satya Nadella, is smart, pleasantly geeky and communicates well. He's off to a good start changing his company's messaging about what it wants to achieve.
It's a challenge, from the outside, to figure out just what Apple wants. For example, just like the original iPhone deal with AT&T, Apple appears to want to leverage off the Comcast network and then create its own relationship with the customer. AT&T benefitted from that, but Comcast is not that desperate. That puts Apple back at square one.
The frenzy of HDMI dongles on the market or just announced reveals that Apple's competitors are taking the easy road and don't understand what customers really want in the world of TV.
Apple made some great improvements in iOS 7.1. It's faster, more stable, you can add shapes to more easily see buttons, and more. That awesome update didn't, however, hit the mark with its new on-screen keyboard representation for the caps lock key. I have a much better idea for how that could've played out.
Apple's iOS 7.1, which was released on Monday, hit a 5.9 percent adoption rate in just the first 24 hours, according to Chitika. The marketing research company released a report on Tuesday based on the operating systems reported in their app metrics platform.

In an emotional response to the National Center for Public Policy Research (NCPPR), Apple CEO Tim Cook soundly rejected the politics of the group and suggested it stop investing in Apple if it doesn't like his approach to sustainability and other issues.
The National Center for Public Policy Research (NCPPR) has put forth a proposal for Apple shareholders that would force the company to disclose more information about its sustainability programs. The right wing think tank also wants Apple to be more open about its participation in "certain trade associations and business organizations promoting the amorphous concept of environmental sustainability."
