Apple's latest iPhone 5S has an unexpected feature: the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD). While it's typically an error found on older Windows PCs, a number of iPhone 5S users are reporting random reboots on their handsets following a BSOD. The blue screen reboots appear to be iPhone 5S specific and are largely occurring with Apple's own iWork apps that come free with all new iOS devices. Videos detailing the issue show that multitasking between apps seems to trigger the BSOD. iPhone 5S users are also reporting random reboots during device use.
t could be months before Apple’s iPhones are available from China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile phone company by subscribers, hobbling Apple’s growth plans in a crucial market.
“We believe the earliest time for China Mobile to launch iPhone is end November,” a China-based analyst from Citigroup wrote in a research note on Sept. 11. The launch could even be postponed “a little” further, he added, though it should happen before the Chinese New Year, which is Jan. 31, 2014.
On Sept. 11, China’s telecommunications ministry said that the new iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S were licensed to work on China Mobile’s network, a sign that the two companies definitely plan to work together in the future. But the fact that a deal wasn’t announced during Apple’s high profile new phone launch in Beijing the same day means they are still far from an agreement, analysts believe.
One looming question is how much momentum and cachet Apple will lose in China between now and the weeks or months that may take. Early signs aren’t good.
The newly-introduced “cheap” iPhone 5C was greeted with derision and sarcasm by social media users in China after the over-$700 price was announced. The company’s much-anticipated, first-ever iPhone launch in Beijing was nothing more than a video replay of the US launch, sparking bitter disappointment from the press invitees who flocked to the event after being promised on invitations that “this day is destined to be a sparkling day.”
“Apple has indeed done something remarkable—they have managed to #$%$ off every media outlet in China,” the South China Morning Post quoted one mainland technology reviewer saying.
Without one of these Apple stays below 500
They have never guided higher before, normally they like to blow past estimates and surprise the street.
He is no more than a rich bully.
Retest of 200 coming up.
Could get ugly.
In this market it looks quite possible.
That's the only way you'll stop the hedge fund's manipulation of stocks
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Citigroup's (C_) research arm has been fined $30 million by Massachusetts' securities regulator over a former analyst's disclosure of nonpublic research to hedge funds including Steven Cohen's SAC Capital, prior to releasing the information to the public.
According to the order, Kevin Chang, a research analyst then employed by Citigroup Global Market's (CGMI) Taiwan office in December 2012 provided confidential research information about Hon Hai, a key supplier of Apple's (AAPL_) iPhones, one day before publishing virtually identical information to the public.
Better use of the funds for growth.
