Apple’s shares traded above $134.54 today, surpassing a previous all-time intraday high set in April 2015. What’s more, the tech giant has reclaimed its throne as the only $700 billion publicly-traded U.S. company, riding a post-earnings rally and a more favorable outlook on Wall Street.

Goldman Sachs raised its price target on the stock on Monday, citing Apple's 3-D sensing technology, while UBS released a note stating the market is undervaluing the firm's services business. The last time Apple broke above the $700 billion level was in February 2015.  (Hey, check out our stock ticker in the right sidebar.)

It's been five months since Apple launched a new line of band options for the Apple Watch alongside the Apple Watch Series 2 and iPhone 7 last September. Now, Apple.com has a few notable stock shortages of Series 2 bundles and -- to a lesser extent -- single band options for the Apple Watch, likely indicating an incoming spring collection of Apple Watch bands. New Apple Watch hardware is expected for later in 2017.

The same shortage phenomenon occurred last summer, ahead of the new bands that launched in September. While hardware updates have been less frequent, Apple has kept new band lineups on a seasonal release cycle approximately every six months, solidifying the Apple Watch as an ever-changing fashion accessory in the company...

Security researchers have discovered a macOS malware program that’s likely part of the arsenal used by the Russian cyberespionage group blamed for hacking into the U.S. Democratic National Committee last year.

The group, which is known in the security industry under different names, including Fancy Bear, Pawn Storm, and APT28, has been operating for almost a decade. It is believed to be the sole user and likely developer of a Trojan program called Sofacy or X-Agent.

X-Agent variants for Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS have been found in the wild in the past, but researchers from Bitdefender have now come across what appears to be the first macOS version of the Trojan.

Apple’s original TV shows are almost ready for prime...

This spring, Apple plans to release its first two original series, Planet of the Apps and full-length episodes of the popular Carpool Karaoke segment hosted by James Corden. It’s not exactly a bold move: Netflix, Amazon, and reportedly even Facebook are making original TV. But unlike Netflix, Amazon, and Facebook, Apple isn’t a content company. It’s a hardware one. But that’s about to change—at least if Apple has anything to say about it.

Services have been a consistent bright spot in Apple’s quarterly earnings reports, and Apple Music is lumped in with that category. The $10/month streaming music service has racked up 20 million paying subscribers in the year and a half since it launched. But Apple can’t rely on music exclusives, which have limited windows, to differentiate itself. So the company is turning to original video content.

The Iconfactory has launched a Kickstarter campaign dubbed "Project Phoenix" in an effort to raise at least $75,000 to reboot Twitterrific for Mac. It was the first Twitter client for macOS, but it’s gotten long in the tooth.

Development of Twitterrific has continued exclusively on iOS since 2013. The folks at the Iconfactory say that the Mac version is missing many recent Twitter features and Twitterrific for iOS refinements. 

The Kickstarter project is for funding a reboot of Twitterrific for Mac (codename: Phoenix). The goal is to build a minimal product within six or seven months.   There are several pledge levels available and all of them include a license to the final product.

Apple's Stock Reaches its Highest Price Ever

Apple is having a good Valentine's Day, as its shares traded above $134.54 today, eclipsing a previous all-time intraday high set in April 2015.

Apple's market value has now surpassed $700 billion, making it the world's most valuable company by a sizeable margin. Google parent company Alphabet is second largest with a market cap of around $575 billion, followed by Microsoft at around $500 billion and Berkshire Hathaway at around $412 billion.

The milestone comes just one day after Apple's stock recorded its highest closing price ever of $133.29 on Monday. Following Apple's first annual revenue decline since 2001, its stock been steadily rising over the past four months, buoyed by record-breaking earnings results at the end of January.

A view to a kill

Like many of us here in Canada and the US, as a kid I sat down on Sunday evening’s to watch “The Wonderful World of Disney”. They often had “documentaries” about various animals. As an adult, I learned many of them weren’t in fact documentaries but often staged to get the desired response from the audience. I still like nature documentaries (I’m a huge fan of the “Planet Earth” series) but I’m much more wary of the staging that is possible.

Review: 1More Triple Driver In-Ear Headphones

In the past year or two, the headphone market has seen a surge of new brands offering "budget" IEMs. When we first heard about the cult following that San Diego based 1More had gathered, we hoped that the company was anything other than just "one more" budget IEM maker. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the company's name is actually a reference to their rigorous quality control testing which, according to 1More, ensures that their headphones can survive a cycle in a washing machine. Though our testing procedures don't involve the laundry, our time with 1More's Triple Driver IEM ($99) was more than enough to convince us that its popularity is well-deserved.

Chime offers "exceptional" audio and video quality, meetings call participants so that everyone joins at once and individuals don't have to fumble for call-in numbers or access codes, and participants (up to 16 on a desktop or 8 on a mobile device) can see each other -- all the same size -- in small square windows.

Much of Twitter’s brand identity dates back to Twitterrific which was the first client built for the service, but Twitter infamously made it difficult for developers to make a business out of Twitter apps a few years ago with a tokenization system and API limitations.

The result has been almost zero competition in the Mac Twitter client space and a lackluster official app. Development for Twitterrific for Mac has been financially unsustainable so the desktop client has become outdated with every change Twitter makes to the service.

Opinion: Why fake news is a huge threat to democracy...

There’s a joke about a time-traveller from the early 20th Century arriving today and asking someone what has changed. The present-day person pulls an iPhone out of their pocket and says: ‘Well, we all carry around this pocket computer that gives us instant access to the sum total of human knowledge.’ The time traveller looks stunned. ‘Wow, what do you do with it?’ they ask. ‘Mostly we watch cat videos.’

The Internet has been, in the main, a hugely positive development. We do have instant access to information on pretty much any subject under the sun, or, indeed, beyond it. We can communicate with people on the other side of the world, for free, as easily as we can those on the next street. We can virtually travel the world, exploring streets in distant locations from our armchair. And very much more.

The Internet also has its dark side, of course. But it’s the subversion of one of its most positive attributes – easy access to information – that poses one of the...

SteerMouse is an advanced driver for USB and Bluetooth mice. It also supports Apple Mighty Mouse very well.

SteerMouse lets you control the cursor's Sensitivity on top of the Tracking Speed. (Apple's software only allows adjustment for the Tracking Speed.) By adjusting both configurations, you can customize the ideal setting for the cursor to fit the movements of your hand.



Version 5.0.5:

Startup to launch 103 satellites in one go, image...

Quartz:

On Feb. 14, an Indian PSLV rocket will attempt to set a record by deploying 103 small satellites in a single launch, including 88 satellites owned by Planet. With a successful launch, the San Francisco-based imaging startup will operate a total of 143 satellites—the most of any company in the world.

If all goes according to plan, Planet expects to be able to image the entire Earth daily; right now it covers about a third of the world’s landmass every 24 hours.

And:

The US government technically prohibits American companies from using India’s rockets, since the company that markets them, Antrix, is state-owned and arguably distorts the market for space access. The rule is in part designed to protect American rocket-makers from competition, but also to protest Indian policies that effectively block foreign satellite companies from doing business there.

Yet with so few options available to small satellite firms, the US has increasingly...

The use of mobile apps for business is heating up with nearly 80% of companies using more than 10 apps for business, according to MobileIron, a company “founded on the idea that mobile apps and data would become fundamental to mobilizing business workflows.” And Apple’s apps are doing well.

The top 10 most popular managed mobile business apps in the world include: Webex, AnyConnect, Concur, Adobe Acrobat, Pulse Secure, Keynote, Numbers, Pages, Google Maps, and Word, according to MobileIron. And among the most popular enterprise apps are adoption metrics for Apple's Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and Device Enrollment Program (DEP).

[VIDEO] Interesting that Will.i.am planned the show Planet of the Apps with his production company, then pitched and sold the concept to Apple (as opposed to the show being a brain-child born inside of Apple).

Also interesting is that the show is being designed around an app which will let you pause the show and dive deeper into a specific app or concept. This is very non-linear. I think it would be a mistake to pigeonhole this as a traditional reality show.

Rumor: 5.8-inch ‘iPhone 8’ will sport a glass-with-...

According to DigiTimes Research, Apple’s 2017 smartphone line-up with include a 5.8-inch iPhone with a glass casing reinforced by a stainless steel frame and a 4.7-inch iPhone with an aluminum frame.

The design for a 5.5-inch model's chassis has yet to be confirmed, the article says. The reinforced glass chassis' stainless steel metal frame will be supplied by Foxconn Technology and US-based Jabil Circuit, while the aluminum-alloy chassis will be supplied by Catcher Technology, according to DigiTimes. Since the 5.8-inch model is expected to adopt an OLED panel, the smartphone's price is estimated at more than $1,000, the report says.

Chances this rumor is true (IMHO): 90%. Heck, there are so many rumors about the “iPhone 8” that some of them will materialize and others won’t.

Apple's next-generation smartphone lineup this year will include a 4.7-inch iPhone with aluminum casing, 5.5-inch iPhone of an unspecified material, and all-new 5.8-inch iPhone with glass casing reinforced by a stainless steel frame, according to Taiwanese website DigiTimes, which keeps tabs on Apple's supply chain.

The report, citing "sources from the upstream supply chain," claims the 5.8-inch model is expected to adopt an OLED display, and for that reason the smartphone is estimated to cost upwards of $1,000.

DisplayMate Technologies outlined the several advantages of OLED display technology when it tested Samsung's Galaxy S7 last...

∞ Apple’s Planet of the Apps trailer

[VIDEO] From the info page:

Planet of the Apps celebrates the world of apps and the talented people who create them. Hosted by Zane Lowe and featuring advisers Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gary Vaynerchuk and will.i.am, the series highlights developers who have the vision to shape the future, solve real problems, and inspire change within our daily lives.

This feels like a mix of Shark Tank and The Voice. As a developer and investor, I’m intrigued by the concept. The hard part is to straddle the channel between broad entertainment and entrepreneurial detail. Keep it fun while still teaching some skill or lesson.

I’ll definitely give this a watch. Trailer is embedded in the main Loop post.

Apple patent hints at iPhone/iPad displays with...

Apple has been granted a patent (number 9,570,002) for an “interactive display panel with IR diodes,” which shows that Apple has looked into iPhone and iPad screens with built-in Touch ID without the need for a dedicated button. Such a feature has been rumored for inclusion in the “iPhone 8,” which is expected to arrive this fall.

Here’s Apple’s summary of the invention (which is heavy in tech-speak): “Exemplary methods and systems use a micro light emitting diode (LED) in an active matrix display to emit light and a sensing IR diode to sense light. A display panel includes a display substrate having a display region, an array of subpixel circuits, and an array of selection devices. Each subpixel circuit includes a driving circuit to operate a corresponding infrared (IR) emitting LED in a light emission mode. Each selection device may be coupled to a corresponding sensing IR diode to operate the corresponding sensing IR diode in a light sensing mode.”

Google Map adds shareable place lists

Google blog:

Starting today, you can create lists of places, share your lists with others, and follow the lists your friends and family share with you—without ever leaving the Google Maps app (Android, iOS).

And:

Open the Google Maps app and find that BBQ spot you’ve been wanting to try. Tapping on the place name and then the “Save” icon adds the place to one of several pre-set lists like “Want to Go” or “Favorites.” You can also add the restaurant to a new list that you name yourself, like “Finger Lickin’ BBQ.” To recall the lists you’ve created, go to Your Places (in the side menu) and then open the saved tab. Icons for the places you’ve saved to lists will appear on the map itself.

I love the concept. Only issue I have is that I tend to move between different Google accounts and if I am logged in to the wrong account, I won’t see my place lists. One workflow is to always share place lists with all accounts, then each added place will automatically...

GEAR4 releases the Buckingham flip case for the iPad

GEAR4 has launched its new Buckingham iPad TPU flip case range in the U.S.. It features D3O shock absorbing technology for enhanced impact protection. The case is available for the iPad mini 4, Air2/Pro 9.7-inch and Pro 12.9-inch.

The D3O impact technology used in the Buckingham case is the same material found in U.S. military combat gear, football helmets and protective wear used by pro athletes. GEAR4 is the first to use an injection molded grade of D3O technology to deliver more impact protection.

GEAR4 designers combined this technology with a functional design, featuring a landscape standing option for working at a desk, table or on a lap. The Buckingham has four slots for business or credit cards, and two larger slots for important documents. Its clip closure ensures the device, as well as valuable items, are kept safe during transport.

Apple joins Wireless Power Consortium, strengthening...

When Apple joins a product group, it might be looking into developing units embracing that technology.

Apple is now listed as one of the 213 members of the Wireless Power Consortium. It was not present in a cached version of the page from a week ago.

Previous rumors had indicated that Apple was planning to incorporate a wireless charging technology in its next-gen iPhone, but had been holding out for a long-range charging solution that didn’t require a charging pad. It was also thought that Apple might opt for simple inductive charging for the device.

One of those reports even indicated that Apple will not include a charger in the box with the iPhone, instead offering it as an optional accessory at extra cost.

IHS Technology analyst Vicky Yussuff says that the company couldn’t wait any longer and offered the following comment:

The success of wireless charging adoption from Apple’s competitors is something that Apple can no longer ignore. IHS...

Cook, who pointed to false stories that spread like wildfire across the internet as a “big problem in a lot of the world,” stated that tech companies have a responsibility to intervene,

“It has to be ingrained in the schools, it has to be ingrained in the public,” Cook said. “There has to be a massive campaign. We have to think through every demographic. We need the modern version of a public-service announcement campaign. It can be done quickly if there is a will.”

“All of us technology companies need to create some tools that help diminish the volume of fake news,” he added. “We must try to squeeze this without stepping on freedom of speech and of the press, but we must also help the reader. Too many of us are...

Apple should make its own Mac speakers again

Not only do I want Apple to get back into the external computer display business, I want the company to make its own speakers for the Mac again. My suggestion: an updated version of the Apple Pro speakers (pictured), which Apple created along with Harman Kardon.

The “orb” speakers (circa 2012 if memory serves me correctly) looked great sitting next to a Mac. They connected to the Mac via a single cable that provided 20 watts of sound (10 watts/channel) to the speakers with a frequency range of 70 hertz to 20 kilohertz. Apple could either offer a wired version (which would use the power your Mac and require no power supply) or a wireless version (which would, of course, need its own power supply) of the 2017 Apple Pro speakers.

I doubt the tech giant will do this, but I can always hope. If it doesn’t, at least perhaps the company will...

Basic Bash Inputs

Recently someone asked me about accepting bash inputs. So I decided to take a stab at writing a little about it up. For the initial one we’ll look at accepting text input. Here, we’ll just sandwich a read statement between two echo commands. In the first echo we’ll ask for a name of a variable. Then we’ll read it in with the read command. And in the second echo we’ll write it out. Using the variable involves using the string of the variable (myvariable in this case) with a dollar sign in front of it, as in $myvariable below:

echo "Please choose a number: "
read myvariable
echo "You picked $myvariable"

Read also has a number of flags available to it:

  • -a assigns sequential indexes of the array variable
  • -d sets a delimiter to terminate the input
  • -e accepts the line.
  • -n returns after reading a specified number of characters
  • -p prompts without a trailing newline, before attempting to read any input
  • -r...

The format of the show is similar to that of fellow talent-based reality shows The Voice and Shark Tank. Aspiring app developers descend down an escalator while pitching four judges on their idea. By the time they get to the bottom, the judges must swipe left or right to demonstrate whether they're interested. If multiple judges swipe right on a contestant, the contestant gets to choose who they want to pair with. Once paired, the developer goes through an incubator period, getting advise from developers at big companies like Uber, until it's ready...

Is Qi compatibility important to you for iPhone 8’s...

With news today that Apple has joined the Wireless Power Consortium, creators of the popular Qi wireless charging platform, speculation is flying about what Apple’s rumored charging tech for the iPhone 8 will look like.

While much has been made about the possibility (or lack thereof) for a long-range wireless charging solution, Apple’s new membership with the Qi-charging people lends more weight to the idea that it will instead introduce inductive charging, perhaps not unlike the competition or for that matter its own Apple Watch charger. But if Apple is using the Qi wireless charging tech, will its solution for iPhone be compatible with the rest of the platform?

The surprising genius of Apple’s dorkiest idea

Fast Company:

The year was 1996.

Apple wasn’t doing well, suffering through the awkward years between the Mac and the iPod. Jobs would return officially in 1997, but in the meantime, Apple was contemplating how to make some fast cash by licensing its name. In this gap leading to its renaissance, Apple considered a concept that feels wild, yet, in retrospect, almost inevitable: the Apple Cafe.

Like many of you, I’m old enough to have been around when this idea first came to light in 1996. I’m also old enough to remember thinking, “Well, that’s not going to fly”. But perhaps the germ of this idea came to fruition in today’s Apple retail

Apple and LG’s collaborative display has been taken off the shelves.

Apple stores have stopped selling the LG UltraFine 5K Display following performance issues, according to 9to5Mac. Last October, Apple announced the LG collaboration has as the go-to external Retina display for the new MacBook Pro after the company discontinued its Thunderbolt Display.

The UltraFine 5K Display is plagued by connection issues, however. Placing the display within six feet of a Wi-Fi router causes interference resulting in continued disconnections and even the MacBook Pro freezing up. LG confirmed that these issues stem from “poor shielding.” According to 9to5Mac, future builds of the LG display will resolve this, but existing...

Over the weekend, Verizon announced a new unlimited data plan for $80 per month, designed to rival T-Mobile's ONE data plan that provides unlimited data for $70 per month.

To set itself apart from T-Mobile, Verizon promised 10GB of tethering data per month and full HD video streaming, two offers that have spurred T-Mobile to offer matching benefits.

As of this afternoon, T-Mobile CEO John Legere has announced that T-Mobile ONE subscribers will be able to stream HD video and will get 10GB of high-speed data at no extra charge. Legere has also announced a promotion that will see T-Mobile offering customers two lines with unlimited data for $100 per month, a $20 discount off of the standard $120 price point and $40 cheaper than two...

Apple Suspends Sales of LG's UltraFine 5K...

Roger Fingas, writing for AppleInsider: Apple has temporarily stopped sales of LG's UltraFine 5K monitor, due to technical problems associated with a lack of proper shielding from wireless interference. Over the weekend, Apple retail staff were told to keep the product on display yet not sell any units if people asked, according to a Business Insider source. The site added that it heard the same from a representative at a New York Apple store. Separately, AppleInsider has confirmed the organized removal from sale of the Thunderbolt 3 display. Sources inside Apple not authorized to speak on behalf of the company indicated that retail locations are retaining demonstration displays, but not selling any stock on-hand that it may receive that may actually have the shielding fix, nor filling any pending orders until otherwise informed. Big blow to Apple, which has given up on external monitors business. But at least, it's comforting to know people who wish to purchase a new display for...

Apple's stock set a new all-time high closing price of $133.29 today, eclipsing a previous record of $133 set on February 23, 2015. The stock still remains around $1 off its true all-time high of $134.54 set on April 28, 2015.

Apple's stock has been steadily rising over the past four months, particularly since the company reported record-breaking earnings results, including revenue of $78.4 billion and net quarterly profit of $17.9 billion, in late January. The stock rose over $7 in a single day following the January 31 results.

Apple analyst Brian White of investment firm Drexel Hamilton has persistently said AAPL remains "one of the most underappreciated stocks in the world," and his target price for the stock is $185. Steven...

For anyone familiar with Kurstin’s track record, his hand in Adele’s repeat success was no surprise. A multi–Grammy Award nominee, Kurstin is known in the industry as an “artist whisperer” who brings out the best in performers like Sia, Beck, Katy Perry, Foster the People, and many more. He does it by bringing a unique set of producing skills to his sessions — world-class ability as an instrumentalist, deep understanding of music and song structure, and a highly effective writing and producing process that runs through Logic Pro X.

It is truly amazing what talented people can do when they get together to write music.

Apple Almost Built a Futuristic Cybercafe in 1997...

Around the time former Apple CEO Steve Jobs returned to Apple in 1997, the company considered building an "Apple Cafe," a fanciful, futuristic cybercafe where people could gather to eat, do business, and use Apple computers. The idea was created in partnership with Mega Bytes, with Apple planning to license its name and brand.

Former Disney Imagineer and Landmark Entertainment Group founder Tony Christopher was tasked with coming up with a design for the concept, and in a new interview with Fast Company, he shared images of what the cafe might have looked like and the story behind its conceptualization.

Jobs was reportedly involved in the design process, choosing Christopher's team because of their work creating unique retail spaces. Jobs wanted a way for Apple to connect to customers, which led to the idea of a cafe equipped with Apple products. A computer was...

Apple Shares Two New Ads Highlighting Portrait Mode...

Apple this morning shared two new iPhone ads on its YouTube channel, focused on highlighting the Portrait Mode feature available on the iPhone 7 Plus. Each 15 second ad explains how Portrait Mode works through blurring the background of a photograph to make a subject stand out.

The ads include examples of images taken with Portrait Mode compared to images taken without Portrait Mode to make the differences clear. The first ad features a dog in front of trees and the second features a child in a creek.

Introduced in iOS 10.1, Portrait mode uses a shallow depth of field to make portrait photos "pop," mimicking a high-end DSLR. The feature takes advantage of the 56mm telephoto lens included in the iPhone 7 Plus, using Apple's image signal processor to scan a scene and machine learning techniques to recognize people and other objects meant to be in the...

The technology may be similar to what the company has already implemented with the Apple Watch, though other reports have hinted at charging solutions that can add power to devices from a distance. The Wireless Power Consortium is the group behind Qi, a wireless charging standard that uses inductive power transfers to charge without cords.

Story of Two Developers Who Are Reporting Growth in...

John Biggs, writing for TechCrunch: In what amounts to one of the purest and most interesting experiments in assessing the value of Mac OS's App Store, the founder of Rogue Amoeba posted a description of what happened when he pulled his app Piezo. The result? More revenue as a whole without much damage to sales. The impetus for the move came after Apple pulled the Dash app off of the App Store. In the 100-day period since the move, Dash maintained and even increased revenue and found that its users didn't care which platform they were using -- 84% of the customers simply moved over to the independent app license from the App Store license. The bottom line? "It feels great to have full control over my business and to avoid App Store installation/updating/purchasing issues," wrote Dash creator Bogdan Popescu. When Paul Kafasis tried to move away from the App Store he was worried he'd lose half of his sales. After all, many months saw about 50% of sales coming from the App Store...

TinkerTool 6.1 - Expanded preference settings for OS...

TinkerTool is an application that gives you access to additional preference settings Apple has built into Mac OS X. This allows to activate hidden features in the operating system and in some of the applications delivered with the system.

The tool makes sure that preference changes can only affect the current user. You don't need administrative privileges to use the tool. With this design, it is no problem to use TinkerTool in professional networks where users have restricted permissions. The program will never change any component of the operating system, so the integrity of your system is not put at risk, and there will be no negative effect on system updates.

All preference settings changed by TinkerTool can be reset to Apple's defaults, or to the state that existed before using the tool. No dangerous background processes are used for TinkerTool's operation. You may send bug reports here.

TD banks on the security of the cloud with Office 365

Today’s post was written by Ron Markezich, corporate vice president for Microsoft.

When customers in highly regulated industries choose the Microsoft Cloud, it’s because they feel confident that our security capabilities will meet their needs. Microsoft has made great strides in securing approvals from global financial regulatory bodies to help them meet their compliance requirements. That’s one reason why TD Bank Group (TD)—a prominent North American financial institution with more than 90,000 employees worldwide—took a leadership role in the financial services industry with their move to Microsoft Office 365.

TD thoroughly tested the built-in security capabilities of Office 365. It also researched and confirmed that the Microsoft Cloud complies with Canadian financial regulatory requirements. And to maintain explicit control over access to their data during Microsoft service operations, they acquired Customer Lockbox for Office 365.

Photo: MacRumors KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims a new 4.7” OLED iPhone will feature a more expensive stacked logic board to accommodate a larger battery. Kuo said the phone would be able to pack the battery life of a 5.5” iPhone into a device roughly the same size as the current 4.7” model. With a number of seemingly conflicting reports emerging now with regards to how many iPhone models Apple will release this year, it’s…

AAPL briefly reaches an all-time high share price

The rally for shares in Apple continues today, with the stock briefly touching an all-time record share price of $133.82 this morning. It's now hovering around $133.68 (yes, we are obsessively watching the Apple World Today stock ticker in the sidebar).

What's fueling this rise in share price? The stock jumped from about $121 per share to about $129 per share the day after Apple reported its Q1 2017 earnings, but it appears that there is a lot of anticipation for the next-generation iPhone(s) on Wall Street. Goldman Sachs raised its price target for AAPL to $150 today, and there's optimism that the company can easily reach that number.

You'll also notice that Apple's market capitalization is just below $700 billion. A share price of $150 per share would bring the market cap to about $785 billion. If it ever got to about $191 per share, we'd see the first company with a valuation of $1 trillion...

Well, this ain’t good, and will only add to cries that Apple once again start making its own external displays for use with Mac laptops: the tech giant has temporarily stopped sales of LG's UltraFine 5K monitor, due to problems associated with a lack of proper shielding from wireless interference. Apple retail staff were told to keep the product on display yet not sell any units if people asked, according to a Business Insider source. 

Recently, 9to5Mac reported that the LG UltraFine 5K Display can be effectively unusable if placed near a Wi-Fi router with some kind of radio interference causing the monitor to...

KGI: OLED iPhone 8 to be similar physical size to 4....

A new report from KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo indicates that the upcoming iPhone 8 will be about the same physical size as the 4.7 inch iPhone 7 and yet pack a much bigger battery, comparable to the 2700 mAH battery in iPhone 7 Plus.

With reports indicating the OLED iPhone screen is circa 5.5 inches, it seems that the ‘no bezels’ rumor is true as its the only way the device would be able to be similar in physical width and height to a 4.7 inch iPhone.

Verizon is just full of surprises. Over the past year, Verizon went negative on its legacy unlimited data customers by purging anyone using too much data. Now, the company wants more unlimited data customers—at least up to a point. Starting Monday, you can sign up for the company’s new unlimited data plan, called Verizon Unlimited.

For $80 a month, Verizon customers receive unlimited 4G data on a single smartphone. Anyone with multiple devices can add two lines on Verizon Unlimited for $70 per line per month ($140 total), three for $54 ($162 total) per line, or four for $45 ($180 total) per line.

Analyst: ‘iPhone 8’ will offer longer battery life

In a note to clients — as noted by MacRumors — KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the “iPhone 8” will adopt a higher-cost stacked logic board design to support longer battery life.

“As battery material tech isn’t likely to see major breakthroughs in the next 3-5 years, mainboard area can only be reduced via stacked SLP, which makes space for larger battery and extended usage time,” he writes. “Thanks to stacked SLP, we expect the OLED iPhone to have similar dimensions to a 4.7” TFT-LCD iPhone, and have comparable battery capacity (equipped with around 2,700 mAh L-shaped 2-cell battery pack) to a 5.5” TFT-LCD iPhone. The battery life of the OLED iPhone could be better than that of the 5.5” TFT-LCD model as OLED panels are more energy-efficient than their TFT-LCD counterparts.”

Kuo added that the battery life of the next gen iPhone with an OLED display could be better than that of a 5.5-inch model with a...
