  • Timeline of the day: Apple's 2014 rumored product roadmap

    FORTUNE -- We can't vouch for anything on the attached timeline -- even its provenance -- but according to AppleInsider and MacRumors it comes from KGI Research's Ming-Chi Kuo, a shadowy Apple (AAPL) analyst based in Taiwan with a track record that's better than most.

  • 17% of U.S. teens would pay $350 for an Apple iWatch - survey

    Of 7,500 teens polled, 6% already wear a smartwatch, 61% own an iPhone, 40% own an iPad.

    FORTUNE -- Before anyone gets too excited about the results of the teen survey Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster released Tuesday, the numbers need to be put in some kind of socioeconomic context.

  • Charlie Gasparino on Apple and high-frequency trading

    Fox Business News' senior correspondent, say Apple investors, couldn't be more wrong.

    FORTUNE -- After watching Apple's (AAPL) share price get whipsawed for years by market behavior seemingly disconnected from the company's underlying value, you could almost hear the jaws drop on Investor Village AAPL Sanity Board last week when Charlie Gasparino used the New York Post's op-ed page to come to the defense of high-frequency trading.

    In a piece titled "Michael Lewis' high-frequency bull," Fox Business News' combative senior correspondent MORE

    By Andrew Zaleski

    FORTUNE -- When the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is unveiled this fall, making its proper debut with it will be Apple's CarPlay, an in-car technology system that will mimic the smartphone interface -- including the touch-screen, if present -- that legions of people carry in their pockets every day.

  • Jon Rubinstein as CEO of Apple? What's that about?

    Global Equities' Trip Chowdhry is obsessed with the idea that Tim Cook must go.

    FORTUNE -- If you follow the Apple (AAPL) sell-side analysts long enough you get to know their hobbyhorses.

    For Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster it's Apple television. For Bernstein's Toni Sacconaghi it's Apple's cash hoard. For Global Equities' Trip Chowdhry, it's Jon Rubinstein.

    Yes, Jon Rubinstein, whom Wikipedia calls the "Podfather" for his role in developing Apple's portable music player. Since he left Apple in 2006, Rubinstein has had a MORE
