  • Apple: Valuation Doesn't Matter, At Least For Now [View article]
    Jobs couldn't control what is going on with the economy, or the selling off for profit. Everyone is talking innovation, explain to me what they are supposed to innovate? Their products keep getting better and better. I don't see Samsung innovating.

  • "When I go into my living room and turn on the TV, I feel like I have gone backwards in time by 20 to 30 years," says Apple (AAPL) CEO Tim Cook in a TV interview. "It's an area of intense interest, I can't say more than that." Other news from the chat is his announcement one of the existing Mac lines will be manufactured exclusively in the U.S. next year. [View news story]

  • More on the iPhone: Gene Munster says his latest Apple Store checks indicate "the iPhone 5 has finally reached a point where consumers can walk into an Apple Store and walk out with a phone." He also notes AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint are all "showing 90%+ availability" for the iPhone, which recently saw its shipping time on Apple's online store fall to 1 week. Munster still forecasts 45M Dec. quarter iPhone sales - he was predicting 49M when the quarter started. (previous[View news story]

  • An Apple (AAPL) TV set hasn't arrived yet only because of challenges in making the Sharp IGZO LCD panels Apple wants for the device, according to Gene Munster. Most prior reports (I, II) have suggested content deals are the main holdup. Munster still thinks an Apple set could launch in a year, and sport an MSRP of $1.5K-$2K. But he's been predicting one would arrive for quite some time[View news story]

  • "Speculation is heightening" Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY.PK) will announce an iPhone (AAPL +1.3%) deal for T-Mobile USA at its Dec. 6-7 analyst day, writes Merrill's Scott Craig. T-Mobile's failure to provide the iPhone is a big reason for its dismal performance, but it was only last week its COO suggested Apple's terms don't make economic sense for the carrier, now set to merge with MetroPCS (PCS). If the Sprint deal is any guide, those terms include giant purchase requirements. Two days ago, UBS wrote T-Mobile may offer the iPhone in early 2013. [View news story]

  • Hurricane-hardened New Yorkers snapped up the iPad Mini today: Topeka's Brian White reports the flagship 5th Avenue store sold out in an hour. Lines were much smaller elsewhere, though Piper still thinks 1.5M in weekend sales is possible. Meanwhile, Apple (AAPL -3.3%) has been banned from selling the iPhone in Mexico under its current name after a court ruled the name is too similar to iFone, trademarked by a local firm in '03. Like the Chinese iPad dispute with Proview, this will probably end with a payoff. (earlier) Update: The Verge claims reports of a ban are off, though it looks as if the court "ordered Apple to pay substantial fines and perhaps even pull the iPhone from market." [View news story]

  • Though many pundits, analysts, and (reportedly) employees liked Apple's (AAPL -2.3%) big management shakeup (I, II), shares have fallen below the $600 threshold today. Scott Forstall had plenty of critics, but he also earned a lot of respect on account of iOS' success over the last 5 years. Today's decline comes as Chinese regulators give their approval to iPhone 5 models meant for China Unicom (CHU) and China Telecom's (CHA) 3G networks. [View news story]

  • Some of the iPhone 5's (AAPL) finer details are getting criticized. Among the issues: 1) The iPhone 5 won't support simultaneous voice and data on Verizon and Sprint's 4G LTE networks, unlike many other LTE phones. 2) A $29 adapter meant to link the iPhone 5's new dock connector with older accessories won't work with some speakers. 3) Until they're rewritten, existing iPhone apps will display black borders on the iPhone 5, due to its larger display and new aspect ratio. [View news story]
