Who’s Your Moses Now, See?

April 27, 2016

So, uh, that happened. Apple put together an earnings report that seemed to spell the official end of the iPhone as an unstoppable force, as time, well, time waits for no one. And so after nine years without a sales decline, one has finally happened, and it’s cast a pall over markets so far in the early going for futures. Just how much the market reacts will be instructive for how much Apple still means for the overall market.

What to expect from Apple’s product launch event today

Local resident Andreas Gibson celebrates with employees outside the Fifth Avenue Apple store after being the first to exit with an iPhone 6 in hand on the first day of sales in Manhattan, New York

After the widely acclaimed introduction of the iPhone 6, Apple Watch and Apple Pay a month ago, Tim Cook is ready to take a victory lap. But the energy surrounding this week's expected roll out of a new slate of iPads and new MacBook and iMac models is significantly lower than that of a month ago.

Apple: ‘Early adopter’ as fashionista

October 18, 2013

To much fanfare, Apple announced Tuesday that Angela Ahrendts is resigning as chief executive officer of Burberry and joining the inner circle in Cupertino, California. “Apple-polishing” has become the headline du jour. Picturing the soignée Ahrendts surrounded by geeks in jeans and hoodies, we might be forgiven for wondering why Apple feels in need of a fashionista buff-up. After all, there is hardly a product line more shiny-bright than Apple’s -- or one with less affinity to the cold exclusivity of the world’s great fashion houses.

1. Navy Yard shooting leaves 13 dead, plenty of questions
A gunman identified as Aaron Alexis, a U.S. Navy Reserves veteran with a history of mental illness, opened fire at the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, killing 12 people and injuring another dozen before being killed in one of several gun battles with police. The incident—the worst attack at a U.S. military installation since U.S. Army Major Nidal Hasan fatally shot 13 people at Ford Hood, Texas, in 2009—prompted a review of security measures at the Navy Yard and renewed the national debate over gun control just five months after the Senate defeated a gun-buyer background check bill.
