* The L.A. Times is reporting new details on Apple's iCloud service, which will likely be announced this Monday at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

Leaves meeting with three top execs with "increasing confidence" in a $540 price target
Katheryn ("Katy") Huberty, Morgan Stanley's chief Apple analyst, met recently with three of Steve Jobs' top lieutenants: Peter Oppenheimer, the money man; Ron Johnson, the former Target exec who built the Apple Stores; and Eddy Cue, the senior vice president in charge of Internet services.
Apparently no company secrets were revealed. The Apple execs would not confirm that MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 5, 2011 5:48 AM ET

A few years ago, a cynical editor I knew was fond of challenging reporters to write a credible and printable headline combining the words "sex," "iPhone" and "Obama" - three of the sweetest pieces of linkbait at the time. As far as MOREApr 20, 2011 12:29 PM ET
Nokia may be most vulnerable as Chinese cellphone owners upgrade to smartphones
There's good news for Apple (AAPL) in the results of an Alphawise/Morgan Stanley survey released Tuesday.
The survey, conducted among a sample of 2,029 Chinese mobile phone users in February and March, found demand for smartphones to be surprisingly strong. 88% of respondents said they expected the next phone they bought would be a smartphone. And 30% of those who MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 29, 2011 2:22 PM ET
Driven by China, a low-cost iPhone, the expanding tablet market and possibly a smart TV
Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty, whose Apple (AAPL) forecasts have turned increasingly bullish in the past year (see Morgan Stanley drinks the Apple Kool-Aid), issued a report Friday even more optimistic than the glowing note she published last November.
In her "bull case" scenario, Apple ships 87 million iPhones and 65 million iPads in calendar 2011, driving MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 25, 2011 6:30 AM ET
A sampling of Wall Street's post-launch notes
Sales estimates: Most analysts were cautious, fearing perhaps that whatever they wrote would soon be overtaken by an Apple (AAPL) press release. Most, like Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, stuck with 500,000 units. But Baird's William Power estimated that Apple sold "roughly 1 million" the first weekend, Wedbush's Scott Sutherland "wouldn't be surprised" by that number and Global Equities Trip Chowdhry thought Apple "may have MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 14, 2011 10:52 AM ET
Pleased to see Steve Jobs, wowed by the device's performance, fearful for the competitors
A sampling of analysts' reactions to Apple's (AAPL) iPad 2 event. By midday Thursday we'd received 20 reports.
Oppenheimer's Yair Reiner: The just unveiled iPad 2 offers the kind of incremental improvements consumers have come to expect from a second-generation Apple device. While it doesn't include any new breakthrough features or functionalities, the sum total of its refinements MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Mar 3, 2011 10:44 AM ET
Pandora's IPO might look like dot-com Bubble 2.0. But the company actually has a sound case for going public.

In 1995, Netscape went public. Underwriters believed the stock was worth $14 a share but demand was so strong they doubled the offering price overnight. It rocketed to $75 a share on its first day. But Netscape was a browser maker, with no clear plan to make money. In time, it was bought MOREScott Olster, editor - Mar 1, 2011 5:00 AM ET
What is it with the Chinese and their iPhones?
The signs were everywhere: The steady stream of human traffic from New York's Chinatown to the Fifth Avenue Apple Store. The housewives arrested at the Hong Kong crossing with dozens of units strapped under their dresses. The scalper fights that broke out when Apple's Beijing store briefly lifted its two-iPhones-per-customer limit.
No wonder Apple (AAPL) decided several years ago to make China MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 22, 2011 6:31 AM ET

At CES, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer revealed the company's plans to expand its motion-based Xbox 360 Kinect controller, which has already sold more than 8 million units, beyond gaming.
