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:

  • Fortune recounts how the iPad played a role in the Greek debt crisis: the company working on reordering the country’s finances bought 100 of Apple’s tablets, loaded debt-restructuring and real-time analytics software on them, and handed them out to its team scattered all over the globe.
  • Security guru Eugene Kaspersky wants to create antivirus software for iOS, but he says Apple won’t let him, for a variety of reasons, reports The Register.
  • Apple’s Monday stock bump added $29 billion to its market cap, or as Daily Finance put it, “about double the size of Research in Motion and Nokia combined.”
  • Another example of what a company can do with billions in the bank: Apple will spend $27 billion on chips this year, according to analysts at IHS iSuppli, which puts it far ahead of any of its competitors, including Samsung. CNET has the report from IHS iSuppli’s Technology, Media and Telecommunications Summit in Paris.
  • Later this summer TiVo will start selling the TiVo Stream, which will send streaming video from the set-top box to an iPad or an iPhone. ZDNet has details and a photo of the Apple TV-like device.
  1. “Security guru Eugene Kaspersky” is an idiot. Why would his firm be better at Anti-Virus than Apple? If Apple allowed companies the level of access to the OS needed to create an AV program, they would in fact be creating a security threat … lastly, iOS only allows apps installed via the app store which is a great place for Apple to check for viruses and malware which they already do … I’m tired of guys like this bitching about this.
