    This is the real new and NOT CNBC INFOMERCIAL:

    Apple needs to sell more iPhones. Despite posting a record-breaking quarter, investors still want more.
    Rumor has it, a budget iPhone is on its way.
    Tom's Hardware has uncovered a patent for a plastic iPhone with no home button.
    The patent was filed in February 2012 but was awarded just last month.
    "The filing itself lists Apple engineers Chong Yip Chow, Hongqin Zhang, Shizhe Shen and Michael DiVincent as principal inventors," Tom's Hardware reports.

    • Still the number one holding:
      Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). No surprise here: once again, Apple was the most popular stock among hedge funds. 146 investors reported a position, down only slightly from 147 last quarter. Highbridge Capital Management, managed by billionaire Glenn Dubin, had owned a fairly small position in Apple at the beginning of July but had increased it to about 120,000 shares by the end of September (see Glenn Dubin's stock picks). Billionaire Dan Loeb’s Third Point also bought shares during the quarter (find more stocks that Third Point bought).

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • With that being said, we're going to reveal the top five holdings of the Billionaire Hedge Fund Index, so retail investors can begin to learn how to best prepare their portfolios for the future.

      Apple Inc. (AAPL) was tied for first among the 40-plus billionaires tracked by the Index, with 18 mega-investors holding at least $10 million worth of the stock at the end of the last 13F-filing period with the SEC. Apple's swoon has been well-documented by all corners of the blogosphere, but shares are still up more than 11% since the start of 2012.

    • At the end of the day, Apple logged a 17.7 percent year-over-year revenue increase to $54.51 billion. Earnings came in at $13.81 per share, beating average estimates by about 35 cents, and coming in well ahead of the company’s own guidance of $11.75. The stock’s killer seems to be that expectations were overall inaccurate. Considerable growth in a rapidly-changing, highly-competitive industry was overshadowed by enormous confusion, but by taking a look at useful information investors can get a better idea of what to expect from this company.

    • These last two releases, coming on the heels of Apple's first fiscal quarterly report of 2013 -- over which it was busted left and right for having record results that failed to meet Wall Street expectations -- only really make sense when read between the lines. In fact, these two releases have the feel of something crafted for the naysayers rather than the enthusiasts.

      In the case of iOS 6.1, the whole release seems to hinge on the point that Apple iOS users represent a huge collective force. To date, Apple reports, iOS users have uploaded more than 9 billion photos to Photo Stream, sent more than 450 billion iMessages, and received more than 4 trillion notifications.

      In addition, Phil Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of marketing, gets into the action by noting, "iOS 6 is the world's most advanced mobile operating system, and with nearly 300 million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices on iOS 6 in just five months, it may be the most popular new version of an OS in history."

      What's he really saying? A bit shrilly, he's saying the OS is more advanced -- but more to the point, there are 300 million iOS 6 users out there. The subtext? Apple's devices and users are not like other users -- like Android users who may be using a bunch of old, not-so-modern versions that might never, if it's even possible, get upgraded.

    • I was trying to post a link from Bloomberg TV called:
      Why Can't Apple Keep Up With iMac Demand?
      But Yahoo doesn't allow links any longer?!!.

    • 18 million tablets -- that's a big number
      Turkey initiated the Fatih project, stylized as F@tih, in November 2010. The basic premise was to modernize education by providing tablets to students and administrators. What makes the program so interesting is its enormous size and scope.

      Turkey is hoping to purchase 17 million tablets for students and approximately 1 million for administrative employees and teachers. The rollout is expected to happen in an extremely fast time frame, considering many educational decisions are made at glacial changes. The project is expected to be completed within three years.

    • Apple has acquired 18 patents related to "axis-based user interface technology," the intellectual property's former owner Maya-Systems announced yesterday.
      According to Maya-Systems, which developers content-management technologies, the companies signed the deal in the third quarter of 2012. Apple acquired only a portion of the company's axis-based user interface technology.
      Maya-Systems' axis-based technologies allows developers to group files around a given axis. In some cases, that can mean timelines. The technology is available in the company's IAmOrganized program, which provides file management and cloud storage.

    • Cook has described the iPad as the "mother of all opportunities."
      "On iPad in particular, we have the mother of all opportunities here, because the Windows market is much, much larger than the Mac market is," Cook said. "And I think it is clear that it's already cannibalizing some, and I think there's a tremendous amount of more opportunity there and as you know I've said for two or three years now that I believe the tablet market will be larger than the PC market at some point, and I still believe that. And you can see by the growth in tablets and the pressure on PCs that those lines are beginning to converge."
