With so many people writing about Apple, finding the best stories and reports isn’t easy. Here’s our daily pick of stories about the company from around the Web that you shouldn’t miss:

  • Harry McCracken at TIME fact checks a sampling of Digitimes reports regarding Apple over the years. It’s not pretty.
  • No surprise: Foxconn refutes last Friday’s report that it’s building an Apple television. The Next Web has the details and explanation.
  • Jean-Louis Gassée makes a strong argument for why Apple won’t go back to Intel and x86 processors for its iOS devices.
  • Apple’s current cable-disrupting technology is supposed to be AirPlay. So why hasn’t the CEO of one of the country’s biggest cable companies ever heard of it? Read the New York Times story.
  • Following some recent malware episodes, it looks like Apple is getting serious about Mac security, says ZDNet. It has hired security firm Kaspersky Labs as a consultant. (Update: Kaspersky CTO Nikolay Grebennikov says he was misquoted by, the source of the original report. He has issued a statement of clarification: “This security analysis of Mac OS X was conducted independently of Apple; however, Apple is open to collaborating with us regarding new Mac OS X vulnerabilities and malware that we identify during our analysis.”)
