Samsung may be winning in device volume, but Apple's App Store attracts paying customers and makes developers' lives a little easier.

FORTUNE -- The tech world's attention will turn to Apple headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. Tuesday, where the company is rumored to debut the enhanced high-end iPhone 5S and the lower-cost iPhone 5C. Other devices, potentially the long-rumored iWatch, could also be showcased. While new Apple products at MORESep 9, 2013 12:27 PM ET
Things are happening at Apple, no question. Will it be enough?
FORTUNE -- The task at first seemed impossible: Determine if Apple's best days are behind it or if it's merely taking a break from breakneck growth and world-beating innovation. After all, how to figure out the trajectory of a company that is so tight-lipped with its plans, which prohibits its people from talking freely, even amongst themselves, a company whose MOREAdam Lashinsky, Sr. Editor at Large - Jul 8, 2013 9:52 AM ET
Revisiting Bruce "Tog" Tognazzini blue-sky speculation.
FORTUNE -- Now that Apple (AAPL) has been spotted securing trademarks for "iWatch" around the world, the device that was once viewed as purely speculative is now assumed far and wide to be Tim Cook and Jony Ive's next big thing.
And what exactly would an Apple wrist-computer do?
For some down-to-earth speculation we recommend the last 25 minutes of Horace Dediu's Tuesday podcast (The Critical Path 91: MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jul 7, 2013 7:08 AM ET
But its supply chain sources suggest that an iWatch this year is "increasingly likely."
FORTUNE -- "While we had expected to hear optimism around Apple's forthcoming product refreshes in this round of checks, we were surprised at the skepticism at many points in the supply chain."
So begins the latest sour note to clients from Citi's Glen Yeung, who has been down on Apple (AAPL) since he took over last year for Richard MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 7, 2013 10:27 AM ET
Much has been made of the rebirth of consumer hardware startups. But some high-profile examples have stumbled out of the gate.
FORTUNE -- To hear some in Silicon Valley tell it, hardware is the new software. In other words, after years of taking a backseat to the splashy launches of countless websites, apps, and the cloud, innovation on the hardware side is ramping up again. Is it? Several high-profile launches have stumbled. MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Apr 12, 2013 1:52 PM ET
Back from China with tales of iWatches, iTVs, fingerprint IDs and iPhones in three sizes.
FORTUNE -- I can never tell with analysts who go on extended walkabouts in the Far East if they're getting the inside dope from their contacts in Apple's (AAPL) supply chain or if they're just getting spun.
Case in point: Topeka Capital's Brian White, who has been filing dispatches from China and Taiwan for more than a week.

Topeka's Brian White is sticking with $888. Bernstein's Toni Sacconaghi is still at $725.
FORTUNE -- After a string of analysts dropping their price targets in lockstep with Apple's (AAPL) falling shares, it's refreshing to hear from a couple of guys who haven't lowered their targets. Or at least not lately.
Bernstein's Toni Sacconaghi ($725, down from $800 last December) weighed in Tuesday with his views on the much-rumored Apple iWatch. He's MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 19, 2013 12:53 PM ET
Google's Project Glass and Apple's rumored watch have promise. But high-tech wearables are already here with the success of Kickstarter-funded Pebble.
FORTUNE -- The first time Eric Migicovsky saw his watch in the wild was at Toronto's Pearson Airport last February. Disembarking a late-night flight, he ran into someone sporting a Pebble on his wrist. "The guy saw me and was like, 'Good work. I just got mine the other day,'" MOREJP Mangalindan, Writer - Mar 13, 2013 9:17 AM ET
Bloomberg does the math and says an iWatch would be a better bet for Apple than an iTV
FORTUNE -- Led by Peter Burrows, a veteran tech reporter with more than two decades under his belt, Bloomberg has taken a second crack at the Apple (AAPL) iWatch story that the New York Times and Wall Street Journal broke three weeks ago.
Bloomberg's contribution that first week was a report, sourced by two people "familiar with the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 4, 2013 7:30 AM ET
Could this be the iWatch we've been hearing so much about?
FORTUNE -- Early Thursday morning, AppleInsider's Mikey Campbell came across a patent filed by Apple (AAPL) in August 2011 that sounds a lot like the touchscreen iWatch Apple is rumored to be building using Corning's (GLW) flexible Willow glass. It also looks a lot like the slap bracelets my kids used to wear when they were in grade school.Philip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 21, 2013 7:13 AM ET
