Daniel Eran Dilger rips into lazy journalism on the iOS v. Android beat.
FORTUNE -- If you like your pro-Apple agitprop straight -- right out of the bottle, no ice, no water -- Daniel Eran Dilger is your man.
Dilger, if you're not familiar with the byline, is Apple's (AAPL) fiercest defender at AppleInsider, one of the Internet's most prominent Apple news and rumor websites.
He was on a tear Saturday, ripping into the tech MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 16, 2014 7:12 AM ET
He writes in an open letter to Apple shareholders that he sees "no reason to persist."
FORTUNE -- On Monday, four and a half months after Carl Icahn tweeted that he had "pushed hard" for Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook to use his company's entire cash holdings to buy its own "extremely underpriced" shares, Wall Street's most feared and admired corporate-raider-turned-activist-investor backed down.
Icahn's announcement, made in an open letter to Apple MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 10, 2014 10:06 AM ET
Words to remember in advance of the Feb. 28 vote on Carl Icahn's shareholder proposal.
FORTUNE -- It's not exactly on point, but reading Ben Popper's piece on Carl Icahn in the Verge this weekend brought to mind a Steve Jobs Q&A from May 1997 -- a few months after his return to Apple (AAPL) -- when someone asked: "Steve, what do we do about the press?"
Jobs spoke for nearly two minutes before he MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 9, 2014 3:55 PM ET
But his definition of a growth company is not exactly canonical.
FORTUNE -- A growth company, according to Investopedia, is defined as follows:
Any firm whose business generates significant positive cash flows or earnings, which increase at significantly faster rates than the overall economy. A growth company tends to have very profitable reinvestment opportunities for its own retained earnings. Thus, it typically pays little to no dividends to stockholders, opting instead to MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 8, 2014 6:40 AM ET
While the Street was dumping Apple, Cook -- and Carl Icahn -- were snapping up shares.
FORTUNE -- Tim Cook's interview in Friday's Wall Street Journal puts the attached Apple (AAPL) stock chart in a new light.
What looked to human day traders and computer algorithms on Jan. 27 like a signal to sell, Cook saw as a buying opportunity.
He was surprised, he told the Journal, that Apple's share price fell 8% after the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 7, 2014 7:56 AM ET
"The whole sensor field," Tim Cook said last spring, "is going to explode."
FORTUNE -- I was reading up on wireless pulse oximetry over the weekend when it occurred to me that we might be looking at Apple's (AAPL) so-called iWatch project from the wrong angle.
Because CEO Tim Cook is a health nut who hits the treadmill every morning, wears a Nike Fuel Band and sits on Nike's (NKE) board of directors, everybody MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Feb 3, 2014 12:11 PM ET
Shares tumble $50 after-hours on disappointing iPhone sales and Q2 guidance.
FORTUNE -- Apple (AAPL) reported record earnings of $14.50 per share on sales of $57.6 billion Monday -- beating both its and Wall Street's expectations. But unit sales of the iPhone were less than expected and the company's guidance for the current quarter -- $42 billion to $44 billion -- was a disappointment to investors, who were anticipating a top MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 27, 2014 4:50 PM ET
CEO talks to ABC about what he can and can't say about Apple and the NSA.
FORTUNE -- Tim Cook got serious at the 2:20 mark in the attached 4-minute YouTube video.
ABC News' David Muir had finally stopped peppering Apple's (AAPL) CEO with questions about the company's next big thing and brought the subject around to the National Security Agency's electronic surveillance program.
A top-secret powerpoint slide leaked last June suggested that an NSA program MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 25, 2014 6:54 AM ET
Why is everybody all in Apple's business?
FORTUNE -- It's not just that so many industry experts think they know Apple's (AAPL) business better than Apple does, Time's Harry McCracken writes. It's that they feel empowered to state it as an imperative, often right in the headline: "Apple must..."
To illustrate, McCracken has posted a fully linked and mordantly annotated version of the list below, with date of imperative, who made it, what Apple MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 23, 2014 7:50 AM ET
No endless lines. No unruly mobs of scalpers. But more that a few customers did show up.
FORTUNE -- Despite a surprise appearance of Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook at China Mobile's (CHL) flagship store in Beijing, the long-awaited launch of the iPhone on the world's largest cell phone network got a "weak" and "muted" response, according to the first report in the New York Times -- a story datelined Tokyo that managed MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jan 17, 2014 9:01 AM ET
