• Apple docs: Samsung misled investors about Galaxy Tab sales

    A "top secret" internal report shows Samsung sold half as many Galaxy Tabs as it claimed.

    FORTUNE -- We were skeptical in January 2011 when Strategy Analytics reported -- based on a vague comment made to investors by a Samsung vice president -- that the company had already shipped 2 million Galaxy Tabs, reducing Apple's (AAPL) market share to 75% from 95% in less than six weeks.

    Nearly two dozen news outlets went with the report, including MORE

  • Grand tour of the Apple retail palaces of Europe: Berlin

    Second stop on a 5-city tour is a renovated century-old theater on a wide Berlin boulevard.

    FORTUNE -- After Paris, the big Apple Store on the tree-lined Kurfürstendamm -- the wide boulevard that is Berlin's version of the Champs-Élysées -- was a bit of a shock.

    The classical Greek revival facade, with its tall windows and inset Ionic columns, is even more imposing than its Parisian sister store's.

    The shopping area inside, however, has none of the Opéra's old-world charm.

    It's a huge space, with 43 MORE

  • Evernote CEO: Apps will become obsolete

    Smart devices and wearables are the future, and they won't run on apps, Libin says.

    FORTUNE -- Phil Libin, CEO of the popular productivity app company Evernote, has an issue with the phrase "the Internet of Things."

    It has come to refer to any device, appliance, wearable, or object that's connected to the Internet, and Libin thinks that's just awful. In his words, it's "the worst and most obnoxious name ever." His comments were made from the MORE

  • Food startups are cookin': Munchery raises $28 million for meal delivery

    San Francisco-based company expands to Seattle, aims to launch in up to 20 cities.

    FORTUNE -- Food has been very, shall we say, hot among venture capitalists lately. In 2013, VCs poured $2.8 billion into food-related startups.

  • 10 Questions: Nico Sell, co-founder and CEO, Wickr

    On top-secret messaging, competing against viral growth apps, and protecting one's identity.

    FORTUNE -- Nico Sell takes security more seriously than most. She is the co-founder and CEO of a mobile application called Wickr, which claims to be a "self-destructing, secure, private, anonymous" means of messaging text, images, and audio between people.

    The app encrypts data from start to finish, so any messages that are shared through Wickr are never saved anywhere permanently and MORE

    FORTUNE -- Sebastian Thrun wears many hats: Stanford professor. Google robotics tinkerer. And now, chief executive of online learning pioneer Udacity.

    The venture capital-backed company in Silicon Valley had a rough start trying to work with San Jose State University, a failed experiment that looked somewhat like higher education organ rejection. It has re-tooled MORE

    Interest in the so-called iPhone 6 sets a ChangeWave survey record.

    FORTUNE -- Smartphone sales in the increasingly saturated U.S. market may have slowed, but if the results of a new survey are any indication, the larger-screen iPhone that Apple (AAPL) is supposedly set to release later this year could be a big hit -- at least among the early-adopter types.
