I’ve used Apple computers my entire life. Here's why I'm never buying one again.

I've grown up with Apple computers my entire life, starting with a model released the year I was born (1986). Apple's design choices have been increasingly hostile to users who want to make even the smallest improvements to their devices themselves. I've decided my current MacBook Pro laptop will be my last; Apple's just not the computer company for me anymore — and they probably agree.   For most of my life, I've been more than just an Apple fanboy — I've been an Apple disciple. My first ...

An expert estimates that Apple has a $37 billion business that it barely talks about (AAPL)

Back in 2015, Tim Cook revealed in a comment during an interview, that Apple's enterprise business — products and services sold to businesses, not consumers — is a $25 billion a year affair. In the three years since, Apple hasn't publicly updated this number.  Being quiet like that is often a less-than-good-sign, but in Apple's case, all the evidence points to Apple's steady investment and growth in the enterprise market. One market researcher estimates that Apple's growth has been at least 50...

There’s a Strong Chance That Apple Will Buy Netflix, Citi Analysts Say

Imagine going to work at 7:30pm every night and spending the next twelve hours, including meals and breaks, inside a factory where your only job is to insert a single screw into the back of smartphone, repeating the task over and over and over again. During the day you sleep in a shared dorm room, and in the evening you wake up and start all over again.

People are talking about hackers 'ransoming' Apple — here's what's actually going on

If you don't want to get hacked, don't use the same password across different services.  And if you're an Apple user, it's a good idea to check your Apple ID and iCloud account to make sure it's using a unique and long password today. That's because on Wednesday, a hacking group calling itself the Turkish Crime Family claimed to Business Insider that it had in its possession around "600m" iCloud passwords that it threatened to use to reset users' accounts on April 7.  Apple told Business Insider...

Apple iPads are getting crushed in a key market by what Tim Cook calls 'test machines' (AAPL)

Tech companies like to hook customers when they're young. If a company can get young people to use your products, the logic goes, then they're likely to remain customers when they grow up and enter the workforce. If that's true, then the iPad's struggle to break into the U.S. educational market is a very bad sign for the company. Apple's share of the United States "K-12" market has fallen to new lows, according to data released by researcher Futuresource Consulting on Friday. Apple's iOS operati...
