  • Problems with new casing colors have pushed back the iPhone 5S (AAPL -2.2%) launch to calendar Q3 from June, writes Peter Misek in his gloomy note. Misek also expects a cheaper, plastic-bodied iPhone that's otherwise similar to the iPhone 5 (Apple's design philosophy makes this questionable), and believes Sharp's light/low-power IGZO displays will be used in the 5th-gen iPad (more believable). He now predicts an iTV won't arrive this year due to challenges in making "a display that looks like 4K/Ultra HD but without the super-premium cost" - BI observes Misek's iTV forecasts haven't been too accurate[View news story]

When was the last time Tim Cook opened his mouth and the stock went up?
