For serious Apple watchers, this may be the best reason yet to buy its $99 set-top box
FORTUNE -- Boy am I glad I didn't spring for airfare and a hotel to cover today's Apple (AAPL) special event in San Jose, Calif.
I had planned to monitor the thing second-hand through any of more than a dozen live blogs.
But now, thanks to a new "Apple Events" channel the company just added to its MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 23, 2012 8:08 AM ET
He says it has two cameras, a more refined back casing and some surprises
FORTUNE -- In one of his dispatches from a tour of Apple's (AAPL) Asian supply chain two weeks ago, Topeka Capital's Brian White mentioned that an iPad case-maker let him handle what they claimed was a prototype iPad mini.
In note to clients Monday -- in which White reminded them that it was he who first coined the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 22, 2012 12:15 PM ET
Sees the $250 to $350 price point as an underserved segment in a rapidly growing market
FORTUNE -- "The next wave of growth in tablets will be characterized by lower price points and mass adoption," writes Deutsche Bank's Chris Whitmore in a note to clients issued Monday, the day before Apple (AAPL) is expected to unveil what he and everyone else on Wall Street is calling the iPad mini.
As the tablet MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 22, 2012 6:35 AM ET
A round-up of what the analysts are saying
FORTUNE --It's the worst-kept secret in Silicon Valley.
Even before Apple (AAPL) issued press invitations for Tuesday's special event in San Jose, anybody who was paying attention seemed to know that the company was preparing to launch a new, smaller iPad in time for this year's holiday gift-buying season.
Every day the Apple rumor sites are filled with fresh speculation about what the new device MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 21, 2012 11:25 AM ET
It lost $40 just before a product launch and what should be record Q4 earnings
FORTUNE -- Andy Zaky had some explaining to do Friday.
Not only had he risked his reputation as a canny Apple (AAPL) trader by issuing a "buy" recommendation on Oct. 9 -- his sixth in as many years -- at what he said was at or near Apple's bottom, but he had lambasted here, here and here MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 20, 2012 11:06 AM ET
San Jose isn't San Francisco. Not even close. But it makes a lot more sense.
FORTUNE -- Some reporters expressed surprise that Apple (AAPL) would choose to hold next week's special event -- the one widely expected to showcase a new, smaller iPad -- at San Jose's California Theater rather than the venues it's been using lately: The Yerba Buena Center for the Performing Arts in San Francisco or the Town MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 17, 2012 6:53 AM ET
A 7.85-inch tablet that runs 250,000 iPad apps could make a popular Christmas gift
FORTUNE -- On Tuesday, as predicted (although not by me). Apple (AAPL) issued press invitations to an Oct. 23 special event at the California Theater in San Jose.
Apple rumor sites, fed by leaks from the company's Asian component suppliers, have been speculating for months that Apple would launch -- just in time for the holiday selling season MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 16, 2012 12:17 PM ET
An analyst who says he's handled a "pilot" model reports that it fits "like a glove"
FORTUNE -- The drumroll in advance of the so-called iPad mini is getting deafening.
AllThingsD's John Paczkowski -- who is rarely wrong about these things -- reported Friday that "people familiar with Apple's plans" tell him that the company will introduce a new, smaller version of the 9.8-inch iPad on Oct. 23 -- nearly a week later than MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 12, 2012 9:40 AM ET
If the company were planning an Oct. 17 special event, we should have heard by now
FORTUNE -- I have to take the fall for passing along the rumor -- apparently false -- that invitations were set to go out on Oct. 10 for an iPad mini unveiling on Oct. 17.
Given that the last three invites I've received from Apple Special Events arrived in my inbox before 12:01 p.m. Eastern, I MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 10, 2012 1:13 PM ET
Only 22% said they wanted a Samsung in Piper Jaffray's 24th semiannual survey
FORTUNE -- We can't vouch for how representative of the U.S. adolescent population they are, but the 7,700 teenagers polled for Piper Jaffray's most recent teen survey sure seem to like their Apple (AAPL) mobile devices.
Here, according to a report issued Tuesday by senior research analyst Gene Munster, are the numbers:
40% own an iPhone, up from 34% in MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Oct 9, 2012 5:44 PM ET
