Apple reportedly asked its suppliers to cut iPhone production again — these suppliers could get hit the hardest (AAPL)

Apple recently asked its suppliers to cut production on new iPhones again, the Nikkei Asian Review reported on Wednesday. The revelation came just a week after the tech giant slashed its revenue forecast and blamed slumping sales on a slowdown in China. Wall Street has already warned about supply-chain companies with a high dependence on Apple. Here are the companies with a large percentage of revenues coming from Apple. Apple's waning product demand is likely to impact not just the tech g...

Netflix quietly made a change to its iPhone app that should spook Apple (AAPL, NFLX)

Apple takes a 15% to 30% cut of subscriptions made through iTunes. Netflix quietly made a change earlier this month that allows it to circumvent that fee by requiring people to create a new account on its website. The Netflix app will still be available for iPhones and iPads. It's a bad sign for Apple's push for online-services revenue, of which App Store fees are a major component, and other app makers could try similar moves. Many people pay about $11 a month for Netflix. In exchange, they ...

Apple threw shade at Amazon 'HQ2' calling it a 'beauty contest,' but then it did the exact same thing (AAPL, AMZN)

Apple announced a new campus in Austin, Texas that will support 5,000 employees. Unlike Amazon's HQ2 process, Apple stayed quiet during the selection process, and CEO Tim Cook said he didn't want it to be a "beauty contest." But ultimately Apple did the same thing as Amazon — choosing to expand in a rich and highly-educated area where it already had thousands of employees. Some news from Apple this morning: It's expanding! Apple said in a midnight press release that it's building a new campu...

An important reform in antitrust law could be on the way

Last week, the United States Supreme Court signaled that it was about to adopt a major change in antitrust law.

Justices Kavanaugh, Gorsuch, Kagan, Sotomayer, Alito and Breyer indicated in their questioning at oral argument that each would favor th...

One photo shows why Apple is smart to not release a 5G iPhone anytime soon (AAPL, VZ)

Apple won't release a so-called "5G" iPhone until 2020 or later, according to a new report. A look at the only 5G phone that has been announced makes it clear why Apple is sitting this cycle out.  5G technology simply isn't ready for phones.  One of the most anticipated next-generation features for smartphones is "5G" wireless connectivity.  Once the next-generation wireless networks become available, "5G" service will blow away the LTE and 4G networks most phones currently work with, at lea...

Microsoft's surprising comeback over Apple is the outcome of two new CEOs with radically different gameplans (AAPL, MSFT)

Microsoft briefly overtook Apple this week as the world's most valuable company. The development speaks volumes about investors' faith in the respective companies' futures and the leaders driving each company there. While Tim Cook has demonstrated that he's a great manager for Apple, he's repeatedly shown he's "not a product person," and he's left shareholders wondering about the company's next act. By contrast, Satya Nadella has resolutely directed Microsoft to its next act, and his vision is...

Gift Guide: Black Friday tech deals that are actually pretty good

Black Friday is, for the most part, bad.

But you know that. If you’re gonna do this, you might as well go in with some sort of gameplan. Our advice?
