  • "The chatter about Apple’s broader television plans has been picking up. And if that chatter is to believed, something is happening this fall — likely late fall," says Apple (AAPL) uber-fan MG Siegler, who seems to have a source or two in Cupertino. Siegler isn't sure whether a TV or a new set-top will arrive - the most recent rumors suggest the latter - and expects an SDK ahead of a product launch. The comments come shortly after Xbox (MSFT) co-founder Nat Brown bemoaned the Xbox's failure to appeal to small developers the way iOS and Android have[View news story]
    Hmmm, disappointing that the only thing a set top box by Apple will do is allow developers to develop games that will make all current game makers (Sony, Microsoft) obsolete, allow you to watch movies, program content currenty offered by Netflix, Comcast, Dish, etc. rendering them obsolete, allow you to access the internet in a way that is intuitive as only Apple can do, allow you to use your iPhone as your one and only remote so you can throw away the 3-4 remotes you now use, make phone calls using Facetime on your large screen tv, download apps and all do it with the ease and intuitiveness that only Apple can do. Yeah, no big deal.

  • Apple (AAPL) roundup: 1) iOS chief Scott Forstall, seen by some as Apple's future CEO, is drawing heat over the Maps debacle. The fact Forstall is also in charge of Siri isn't helping matters. 2) Japanese blog Macotakara claims iPad Mini production has begun at a Brazilian plant (presumably Foxconn's). 3) The EU is investigating Apple over its warranty marketing practices. 4) Piper's Gene Munster claims 16 of 20 surveyed U.S. Apple Stores were sold out of iPhone 5 units - is that due to huge demand, shortages, or both?

    I demand an apology from Apple for this debacle! Apple must be mismanaging if they have to apologize. If Apple would only apologize this would all go away. lol! so true GRJ.

  • Kayak (KYAK +2.7%) rallied today after CEO Steve Hafner declared on CNBC (video) that Google (GOOG) isn't a threat to the travel search engine. "Google has had their flight search and hotel finder out in the market for two years ... it's an inferior product," Hafner asserts. Kayak and Google have a complex relationship: about a tenth of Kayak's traffic comes from Google queries, and the company relies on data from Google's ITA Software unit. Kayak opposed Google's purchase of ITA last year.  [View news story]
    Google flights is by far the BEST airfare search engine out there. Not all bogged down with clutter and ads. I'm sure most people don't even know about it. Check it out for yourself. Its the only air travel site I use. I would say that all the travel sites have A LOT to worry about if more people discover how AWESOME Google travel is!

  • Technician Louise Yamada urges clients to keep stops tight as she watches equities with growing unease. "You could call it a vacuum rally," she says, characterized by short-covering, low volume, and deteriorating new highs vs. new lows. The lagging Transport Index (IYT) has her attention as well, but following this indicator kept some out of the big summer rally.  [View news story]
    Fortunately the internet is an excellent resource to find previous calls, whether good or bad. Here Ms Yamada has a perfect opportunity to call a bottom, "if" she, or anyone for that matter, truly knew. But no-one knows the future no matter what charts they study. If they did, they would be multi-trillionaires. Listen for yourself to this interview from March 2009 when the DJIA was bottoming in the 6500 range:
