When did an All Things Digital become the keeper of Apple's event calendar?
We don't recall getting an invitation from Apple to an event on Oct. 4 or any other date, but that hasn't stopped analysts from alerting their clients exactly what to expect from the company that day. Jeffries' Peter Misek, for example, issued this note on Friday:
Apple holding press event on October 4.

Demand for the iPad is also rising, according to data from a ChangeWave survey
RBC Capital's Mike Abramsky has raised his fourth quarter iPhone and iPad estimates based on the results of a survey of 2,200 potential buyers. The survey, conducted in August by ChangeWave research, showed what Abramsky called "unprecedented iPhone 5 demand and strong back-to-school iPad buying intentions."
In a note to clients issued Tuesday he ticked off the main MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Sep 13, 2011 8:23 AM ET

The Department of Justice and AT&T have one thing in common: neither side wants to talk about the real rationale for the T-Mobile takeover.
FORTUNE -- When AT&T bet $39 billion that it could acquire T-Mobile -- including $6 billion it won't get back even if regulators kill the deal -- it gambled on a clever strategy that suddenly seems too clever by half.
AT&T (T) advertised the benefits of the merger MOREScott Woolley - Sep 1, 2011 9:35 AM ET
Why Cox is abandoning its much-hyped cellular network, and why it's a bad sign for any new wireless entrant.
FORTUNE -- AT&T executives looking to convince regulators to approve Ma Bell's merger with T-Mobile argue that the cell phone market is plenty competitive. Just look at the growth of new competitors such as Cox Communications, a cable company that built and runs a brand new cellular network, they say.
Cox appears to make MOREScott Woolley - Jun 17, 2011 8:00 AM ET
Google new NFC-enabled services, Wallet and Offers, are ambitious, but getting all of the pieces to work together will be difficult.
FORTUNE -- At yesterday's Google Wallet/Offers launch event in New York, Google (GOOG) laid out a very compelling case for using NFC-enabled Android phones to make payments at physical merchants. The company trotted out launch partners including the Container Store, Subway, American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) and Walgreens (WAG). On the backend, Google MORESeth Weintraub - May 27, 2011 4:16 PM ET
The No. 1 carrier signed up 3.4 million new subs last quarter, while its competitors lost share
It's probably fair to assume that at least part of the Q1 2011 bump in the blue line at right can be attributed to the Feb. 10 launch of the Apple (AAPL) iPhone for Verizon Wireless (VZ).
As Piper Jaffray's Christopher Larson notes in a report to clients Monday, 38% of the new cellular subscriptions MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - May 9, 2011 1:10 PM ET

The form factor isn't the only factor.
I've been playing with T-Mobile/LG's 8.9 inch Android 3.0 tablet for the better part of a week and I think it is an interesting piece of hardware. This is the first time I've played with Honeycomb, Google's (GOOG) tablet OS, extensively so it took a bit of getting used to.
There are plenty of things wrong with this tablet and I'll get to those below. MORESeth Weintraub - Apr 19, 2011 6:27 PM ET
After offering Google Voice, the carrier now will let you make Market purchases against your monthly bill.
Joining AT&T (T) and T-Mobile (ahem), Sprint (S) will now allow Android users to buy Android Market items and have them charged to their monthly Sprint bill. This theoretically simplifies purchasing and removes the barrier to entry for paid Apps for some Android users. Google remarked:
