A veteran Apple watcher and a former Apple CEO add insight to insult
FORTUNE -- For readers who might someday find themselves on cable television fielding annoying or clueless questions in your area of expertise, here's a lesson from a couple of pros.
John Sculley, former CEO of Apple (AAPL), and David Kirkpatrick, my former colleague at Fortune, deftly turned a 7-minute interview on Bloomberg TV into an opportunity to set the record straight MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 25, 2012 7:02 AM ET
Excerpts from Tim Cook's Bloomberg Businessweek interview
FORTUNE -- We always knew that Steve Jobs was going to be a tough act to follow, so I suppose his successor should be forgiven if he came across in his NBC and Bloomberg Q&As Thursday as painfully sincere and even a little schmaltzy -- something the more cynical Jobs always managed to avoid.
The big PR coup in both interviews, of course, was the news MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Dec 7, 2012 7:15 AM ET
What if Apple turned the iPad into an easy-to-use front end for real-time financial data?
News Corp. (NWS), a ship that leaks from the top, reports through AllThingsD that Apple (AAPL) has scheduled "an important — but not large-scale" New York City event in late January headlined by Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president for Internet software and services.

The documentary that premiers Thursday night covers some well-plowed ground
There could be a few surprises in the hour-long biography of Steve Jobs that will kick off this year's "CNBC Titans" series. But judging from the previews and Web-extra videos posted on the show's site, it's a long shot.
For people who have followed the career of Apple's (AAPL) co-founder and CEO, the photography and film clips will have a familiar feel MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 23, 2011 7:11 AM ET
On Bloomberg TV, the head of Holland & Co. joins the chorus mystified by AAPL's valuation
Michael Holland can't believe Apple (AAPL) is selling for 11 times next year's earnings.
"Apple's not being picked on," he told Bloomberg's Carol Masser Wednesday, "they shouldn't take it personally."
Holland, who worked for J.P. Morgan, Salomon and Oppenheimer before starting his own private investment firm with $4 billion in assets, names Google (GOOG) and Microsoft (MSFT) MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 15, 2011 10:27 AM ET
The institutions that control 71% of the company's stock moved a lot of shares last quarter
Sammy the Walrus IV, who writes a Tumblr blog called AAPL Orchard and describes himself with a pseudo mathematical formula (Engineering and Finance background + Cynicism + Apple Knowledge = the Sammy Persona) seems to have got hold of some interesting Apple (AAPL) institutional shareholder information.
He shared it with @SammyWalrusIV's 129 Twitter followers Tuesday in MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 25, 2011 11:52 AM ET
Steve Jobs may have found a way to get TV makers to put Apple's technology in their sets
Apple (AAPL) is talking to television makers about building a new generation of HDTV sets with Apple TV technology built in.
That's the thrust of the report Bloomberg posted Wednesday that cites "two people familiar with the project" and quotes a Pioneer vice president on the record as saying "Apple connectivity in AirPlay is MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 24, 2011 8:08 AM ET
There's a lesson for tablet makers in the reported death of Microsoft's "iPod killer"
A fair amount of journalistic grave-dancing followed Bloomberg's report Monday that Microsoft (MSFT) had decided to stop developing new versions of its Zune music and video player -- a report Microsoft did not deny.
The headline of the story at MacDailyNews -- More blood on the iPod's Click Wheel: Microsoft pulls plug on Zune -- was an inside MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 15, 2011 6:32 AM ET
The full featured app signals the rise of Android in business.
Google's (GOOG) Android platform is starting to make significant inroads into businesses. One sure-fire indicator is that Bloomberg has released an Android app for their news readers on Google's smartphone platform. Android Bloomberg users were previously able to access their information via a mobile web interface but the new app is a "richer, more interactive, and engaging experience".

Vowed to never visit the country again, according to a Japanese magazine
[UPDATE: This one was apparently too good to be true. Apple has described the Ninja throwing stars part of the story as "pure fiction." See below.]
At the end of July, according to a second-hand report that appeared on the Bloomberg news wire Tuesday morning, Apple (AAPL) CEO Steve Jobs was stopped by Japanese airport security when a scan revealed MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Sep 14, 2010 7:32 AM ET
