Enthusiasts line up overnight for the company's first Apple Store in Eastern Europe.
FORTUNE -- By the time Apple (AAPL) opened the doors to the first company-owned Apple Store in Turkey -- and its first in Eastern Europe -- a crowd estimated at 450 had joined the two-story queue that wrapped around the store twice, indoors and out, for a free T-shirt and a chance to check out the latest Apple products.
According to ifoapplestore's Gary Allen, who attended MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 6, 2014 6:31 AM ET
New evidence in one of the most contentious issues in the Apple v. Samsung II patent trial.
FORTUNE -- AppleInsider's Daniel Eran Dilger and FOSS Patents' Florian Mueller have locked horns in a fierce debate over whether Samsung ought to be held liable for copying Apple's (AAPL) slide-to-unlock patent -- one of five patents at issue in the $2 billion infringement trial that began last week.
Dilger posted his piece on Saturday:
Apple unlocks MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 6, 2014 5:41 AM ET
The full text of the e-mail in which Steve Jobs lays out his final hopes and fears for Apple.
FORTUNE -- In October 2010 Steve Jobs wrote a memo to Apple's (AAPL) executive team outlining the points he wanted covered at that year's Top 100 -- the secret off-site meeting of the 100 employees he viewed as most critical to the company's success.

Android or iOS? That may depend -- more than you know -- on where you live.
FORTUNE -- Do the rich tweet from iPhones and the poor from Androids?
That was Business Insider's takeaway from a graphic of Twitter usage that painted Manhattan island Apple (AAPL) red and Newark, N.J., Google (GOOG) Android green.
Patently Apple's Jack Purcher didn't buy it. And with series of maps like the one above, he made the case Friday that when MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 5, 2014 2:55 AM ET
The tech giant's $99 device, released this week, is an impressive living room contender.
FORTUNE – Anything you can do, Amazon (AMZN) can do better -- and at cost.
That's clearly the mission behind the company's latest device, the long-rumored Fire TV: a $99 tile-shaped, coaster-sized set-top box that streams media à la Roku and Apple TV (AAPL). But the company trumps the competition, at least on the hardware side, by packing a MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Apr 4, 2014 5:22 PM ET
Samsung told the jury -- 8 times -- that Apple never used 3 of the 5 patents.
FORTUNE -- A certain amount of dissembling is part of the art of lawyering. But even FOSS Patents Florian Mueller, in his new role as Apple (AAPL) scold, agrees that Samsung went too far in its opening arguments.
The issue in the first week of the new Apple v. Samsung trial is what Apple meant by the "undisputed fact" in the attached quote, taken from MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 4, 2014 11:46 AM ET
The White House is miffed about the unauthorized promotional stunt, but what can it do?
FORTUNE -- In case you haven't seen it, here's how Boston Red Sox slugger David ("Big Papi") Ortiz managed to enlist President Barack Obama in a Samsung promotional campaign.
Samsung retweeted Ortiz' selfie to its 5.2 million Twitter followers and told the Boston Globe that it was "thrilled to see the special, historic moment David Ortiz captured with his Galaxy Note MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 4, 2014 5:11 AM ET
Is he being blackmailed? Has his child been kidnapped? Did he merely sell out?
FORTUNE -- The questions in the subhead are not mine. They were posted Thursday on Investor Village's AAPL Sanity board. But questions along those lines are being asked by more than a few long-time readers of Florian Mueller's FOSS Patents blog, including executives at Apple (AAPL) headquarters.
Mueller, for those unfamiliar with his work, may be the world's most-quoted expert on smartphone patents. MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 3, 2014 9:18 AM ET
This time, Apple is keeping it simple: Five patents, 10 Samsung devices.
FORTUNE -- One of the things that marked the first Apple v. Samsung patent infringement trial -- and forced a partial retrial -- was its complexity. It involved:
Three kinds of patents: Design, utility and standards essential
Two kinds of trade dress: Registered and unregistered
21 Samsung devices: Both smartphones and tablets with names like Captivate, Indulge, Mesmerize and Vibrant
Three Samsung corporate MORE
"Each month that passes," writes Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, "reduces our confidence."
FORTUNE -- Pity Gene Munster.
It's been five years since Piper Jaffray's chief Apple (AAPL) watcher first alerted investors that Steve Jobs' "hobby" -- the Apple TV set-top box that launched in 2007 -- was merely a precursor to a more ambitious project: a full-blown Apple television set.
"While Apple downplays the possibility," he wrote in a February 2008 note to clients, "we expect the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Apr 2, 2014 10:55 PM ET
