It's not so bad if you have a couple of backups. But not so cool if it's your only one.
My guess is that it was fairly simple. Apple was requesting planning approval for a very large and important project, and wanted to project its best image to the local review board. Actions such as this are very helpful in getting those people on your side. Dismantling and rebuilding the barn will cost a bit but that's noise in comparison to the cost of the whole project.
 Oh, c'mon folks. Is there no creativity left ?? "Apple sails, Samsung flails" There. Done.
I suspect that there's manipulation going on, just like we saw two years ago when it was driven down from 700 to close the year at exactly 500. Which was where the options were set. There's no reason I've seen that would cause the stock to drop from 119 three weeks ago to 108 now. Even rebalancing portfolios (which happens at this time of year) doesn't explain a 10% drop. So I am suspecting manipulation.
Credit cards are as fast (maybe faster) if they have PayPass/payWave. If you have to swipe AND SIGN then they're a lot slower.
And let's not forget that 2012 - the period in question - is when traders drove AAPL down to close at exactly $500 on the year-end. Which was good for the people dealing in options.    Not all of the people on Wall Street are crooks. But some of them are.
Not all the people on Wall Street are crooks. But some of them are.   This trader and his boss should have a stint in jail. As an example for the others.   So why are they not there? Why is there a piddling $4 M fine against Morgan Stanley - which will be paid by the shareholders (indirectly) and not those responsible?   Where is the accountability?   Why is it that a teller who misappropriates money goes to jail, and a trader that does the equivalent has the fine...
There are some strong rules against that so it would be good for you to not be more specific than "wonder" unless you have some evidence. Be careful otherwise it could be quite expensive. But, beyond "wondering", do you have any dispute with the data as presented? Do you disagree with it? If so, what and how.
I agree with the suggestion in the article - the combination of Smart Cover and Touch ID doesn't work so well.   The good news is that Apple is good at sorting out issues such as this (which is why they have the location-based security patent).   Personally, while at home I am content with having my iPad not require a passcode to unlock. Of course, Touch ID is required for purchases etc. Away from home, I want  the passcode to be required to unlock it.
This is a class-action suit so there may be some different rules that apply. I'm not a lawyer so I don't know, but I suspect you may be right. The lawyers probably had two "leads" in case of a problem but now they find there are issues with both. Oops. Courts take a dim view of1. their time being wasted2. lawyers not doing their homework.It would not surprise me if the Judge dismisses this case, maybe with prejudice, just to teach the lawyers that they need to do better...
