While some pundits question whether Tim Cook can steer Apple to new successes in a post-Steve Jobs era, investment firm UBS on Monday came out in full support of the Apple CEO, calling him the "right man for the time." Following the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference this month, analyst Steve Milunovich said he believes Apple is gaining steam under Cook, who is remaking it under his own vision. In a note to investors on Monday, a copy of which was...
Apple has thrown its hat into the ring with fellow technology and telecommunications giants Microsoft, Cisco, Verizon, and AT&T to oppose a federal court ruling that could force American companies to hand data about foreign customers over to the U.S. government in violation of international laws and treaties. Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple's participation comes in the form of an amicus curiae, or "friend of the court," brief filed jointly with networking equipment maker...
At its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple quietly revised its App Store rules to allow "approved" digital currencies, which has paved the way for Bitcoin-related apps to return. Apple began pulling Bitcoin apps from the App Store in February, most notably the popular title "Blockchain" utilized by some 120,000 users. As it is a peer-to-peer digital, virtual currency, Bitcoin has been met with some resistance in establishing itself as an accepted form of...

A new profile of Apple's chief executive, titled "Tim Cook, Making Apple his own" actually says little about Cook and virtually nothing noteworthy about how he is leading Apple. Instead, the New York Times simply recounts more predictions of doom for the company in a piece filled with fictions and fallacy. Not enough Cook in the kitchen Unsurprisingly, the article's authors Matt Richtel and Brian X. Chen have to admit early on that Cook "declined to be interviewed for...
iPhone photographers who wish they had a steady grip and dedicated shutter button to pair with their Apple handset will likely be impressed by the Snappgrip hardware accessory, but they'll have to tolerate subpar software in order to use the device. AppleInsider was provided a review unit by BiteMyApple.co, where it sells for $69.99 and is available in black or white. We used the black version with an iPhone 5s. In the box is the Snappgrip controller and iPhone case,...
In a pair of filings with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit earlier this week, both Apple and Samsung dropped their respective appeals of an ITC order to block sales of certain Samsung products, agreeing further pursuit on the issue would be unfruitful. News of the agreement first came from a Samsung motion on Thursday to voluntarily dismiss its appeal of the ITC ruling from August 2013 that found the company's products in infringement of two Apple...
A pair of photos published to Twitter on Saturday show a side-by-side comparison of mockups believed to be representative of Apple's next-generation "iPhone 6" models, which are rumored to be coming in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes. Source: Sonny Dickson via Twitter The photos from Australian blogger Sonny Dickson show front and back views of two dummy handsets purportedly based on Apple's next-gen iPhone designs, possibly offering an early look into how the two...
Epson's LW-600p label printer is an unassuming devices that solves a specific problem, and does so generally well: printing labels on the go. What makes this accessory stand out is the inclusion of Bluetooth and a companion iOS app. When we first saw the Epson LW-600p label printer at CES, we didn't know what to expect. We've suffered label printer problems for years, where the added nature of a sticky surface means that printers can fail in all kinds of awful ways....
