Apple proved it could grow outside the smartphone in 2019, now the spotlight is back on the iPhone and Wall Street is looking for a show of force (AAPL)

For Apple, 2019 was all about new product expansions into areas like television and personal finance and boosting its wearables and services business.

Netflix and Apple Have Considered Buying MGM as the Streaming Wars Continue

The streaming wars are really heating up now that Apple TV+ is a key player alongside the likes of Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime. It’ll soon get even more crowded with the upcoming arrival of Peacock from NBCUniversal and HBO Max from Warner Media. But not every content provider out there has the money to create their own streaming service, which means some studios are in the market to work out deals for their content libraries, or perhaps even selling the entire studio. That’s what MGM might ...

We compared iPhone 11 to iPhone XS to see which is better for iPhone owners — and the new iPhone 11 is best if you love taking photos

Apple's latest iPhone lineup has been out for a while now, including the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 11 is an excellent "entry-level" flagship phone from Apple, with specs and a camera that are solid upgrades from the iPhone XR. If you're upgrading from a device that's more than a year old, we recommend choosing the iPhone 11. But, is Apple's new ground-level flagship good enough to be worth an upgrade from the newer iPhone XS? The answer is no — with one major ...

If you’ve spent a lot of time on the internet in the last decade, you might immediately recognize this description: a toddler clenches his fist in front of a determined-looking face. “Success kid” is one of the most popular online memes in history.

Apple investors should protect against earnings losses as expectations soar, JPMorgan says

Apple shares sit just below record highs after an 86% gain in 2019, and JPMorgan analysts say investors should "reduce risk" heading into the company's Tuesday earnings report. The consensus forecast is for the tech giant to beat profit estimates in its fiscal first-quarter report, but the "high bar of expectations" and the stock's lofty price could lead to profit-taking, analysts said in a Monday note. A JPMorgan equity strategist recommends buying options spreads to reduce earnings-related r...

Why I won't buy an Ipad: ten years later

Ten years ago, Apple released the Ipad. I was in a hotel room in Seattle, jetlagged and awake at 4AM while my wife and daughter slept. I had been thinking about Apple's impending Ipad release and what a reversal it meant for everything I loved about tech: taking away your right to decide whose code you'd run -- even your right to change the battery! I wrote about my feelings and many people read it. It even rated a mention in Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs. A decade later, th...

Google may be quietly preparing to add one of the iPhone's most coveted features to Android (GOOG, GOOGL, AAPL)

Google is reportedly working on a new file sharing feature for Android called Nearby Sharing, which would function much like Apple's AirDrop, as XDA Developers recently reported.  Google has offered some similar functionality in the past through its older Android Beam feature, which it has since phased out, and its Files by Google app. But this new addition, reportedly called Nearby Sharing, would be built in to the operating system and would presumably work across all Android devices.

10 Years of iPad

Source: Statista January 27 marks 10 years since Apple announced the debut of the iPad. At first, people thought it was nothing more than a clunky, glorified iPhone. But Steve Jobs knew the type of success the iPad could have. The key was in the apps, and how they could be used on an iPad versus an iPhone. But the iPad isn’t as popular as it once was. The company has seen a decline in the sales of the iPad in 2015. It was at its peak in 2013, where the iPad accounted for 26 percent of Appl...

We asked 14 big backers like Bain Capital Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, and Point72 what counts as a fintech. They had a wide range of opinions on a $24 billion question.

Business Insider surveyed 14 investors to understand how they define the word "fintech." Responses varied greatly. Some think it's pretty straightforward, while others think it's complicated and wide-ranging. Some VCs said the term "fintech" isn't really a thing anymore, and others think "fintech" could mean applying finance to everything, as opposed to applying tech to finance. But even though the investors didn't settle on one clear answer, a lot of their money is converging. In 2019, VCs po...

Apple is under pressure to kill the iPhone's Lightning charger — but here's why that probably won't happen anytime soon (AAPL)

The EU is pushing for the adoption of a common charging cable that would work across all types of smartphones, a measure that would likely require Apple to switch from its proprietary Lightning charging method to USB-C. Apple has pushed back against such regulation, saying that it would stifle innovation and pose an inconvenience to consumers. There are several reasons why Apple isn't likely to ditch the more than 7-years-old Lightning cable unless it has to. For example, doing so would cause ...
