  • Apple (AAPL) roundup: 1) Jefferies' Peter Misek, fairly plugged in to supply chain movements, thinks June quarter iPad build plans have been raised to 20M-25M, and that iPhone build plans stand at 25M-30M. 2H build order pickups are forecast for both as new hardware launches. 2) Brian White's Apple Monitor (tracks supplier sales) also indicates stabilizing orders - April sales rose 1% M/M, slightly better than a -1% historical average (possibly good news for CRUS). 3) T-Mobile USA (TMUS) has raised the down payment for a 16GB iPhone 5 by $50 to $149, bringing the total 24-month cost to $630. [View news story]

  • With bad user reviews piling up, Facebook Home (FB) has fallen out of App Annie's top-100 Google Play download lists for every covered market. Nonetheless, those who have downloaded Home are spending 25% more time using Facebook than before, giving Mark Zuckerberg & Co. a big incentive to right the ship. Updates will soon bring back two Android staples - an app dock and folder support - but there's no word on when a third (widgets) whose absence has sparked many complaints will arrive. Meanwhile, Home now supports Samsung's Galaxy S4, and AT&T has cut the price of the HTC First to a subsidized $0.99. (previous[View news story]
