Sorry Apple, I’m still not ready to upgrade my iPhone

Last week, in light of Apple’s revised revenue guidance, my TC colleague Ron Miller made a tongue-in-cheek apology for taking so long to upgrade his old iPhone. He wrote that he had finally bitten the bullet and shelled out to upgrade  a more than three-years-old (but still working) iPhone 6 for a shiny new iPhone XR ($750+) — deciding at the last minute to spare his wallet the full $1,000 whack for the top of the range iPhone XS.  Ergo, even the famous Apple premium only stretches so far. I br...

Apple has way bigger problems than China, analysts say (AAPL)

Apple's revenue warning this week shook investors, sending shares plunging 10% and plaguing the broader market. The tech giant pinned most of the blame on a slowdown in iPhone sales, primarily in China. But China isn't Apple's biggest issue, according to a new analysis from CLSA, who points to the iPhones' average selling price and rising competition as the "real problems." Investors were shaken this week as Apple warned late Wednesday it would miss revenue expectations for its fiscal first-...

Silicon Valley’s year of reckoning

Tech companies have always branded themselves as the good guys. But 2018 was the year that the long-held belief that Silicon Valley is on the right side of progress and all things good was called into question by a critical mass. As startups grow bigger and richer, amassing more power and influence outside of the Valley, a reckoning has played out in government and business. Mission statements like “connecting the world” and “don’t be evil” no longer hold water. A look at a few of this year’s mo...
