Join us at 6:30pm today for a live blog covering the appearances of Apple CEO Tim Cook and Alibaba founder and executive chairman Jack Ma at the Wall Street Journal’s first WSJ.D conference.
In a rare public appearance, Apple CEO Tim Cook talks about why Apple cares about fighting climate change and embracing sustainability.
Surprised, and maybe even annoyed, by the sudden appearance of U2’s latest album on your phone? You are not alone. Here’s what others are saying, and how to get rid of the album.
The Apple Watch is finally a reality, so will it redefine what a smartwatch actually is and does? That’s a tough one because I’m not sure we’re really defined the need for a smartwatch to begin with.
Apple’s legal headaches over its role in a price-fixing scheme for ebooks appeared to be over. Now, shareholders have piled on with a new lawsuit accusing its executives of mismanagement.
The company will soon start making it more difficult for people to illicitly access iCloud accounts. Better late than never.
Apple’s slowing iPad sales met Apple’s own expectations but nobody else’s apparently. Sure, slowing growth rates aren’t necessarily a good thing but there are several reasons to explain why iPad sales have slowed.
Apple devices are flooding the enterprise anyway. Now businesses — IBM accounts anyway — can get help making sure they work well with others once inside.
A new profile of Apple CEO Tim Cook suggests he is less hands-on with product development than his predecessor, Steve Jobs.
By making Nike hardware and Apple hardware one and the same, Nike not only gains a huge installed user base, but Apple gets a user-facing feature no other handset maker can match: fitness from a world famous fitness company.
What’s on the menu? Killer Drones, the man who mastered them and another who uses them; 20,000 warcrimes later; the rise of the machines and are we becoming puppets of a wired world. Plus, who is Marty Sullivan? Hint: Ask Tim Cook.
We covered Apple’s fall iPad event here in this live blog, and here’s how it happened.
Angela Ahrendts, CEO of Burberry, is an inspired choice by Apple CEO Tim Cook to run its retail and online businesses. She could become the change that changes Apple and be a future CEO candidate. Or fail spectacularly. Either way it will be fun to watch.
The tech firm will next year have a retail chief for the first time since October 2012, when the less-than-successful John Browett was booted out.
Oh, if we only had a Batphone directly to Tim Cook. Wait, Carl Icahn just might have that. He spoke with Apple’s CEO on Tuesday and like what he’s heard saying the company is very undervalued right now.
Apple CEO Tim Cook, internet visionary Vint Cerf and others met with President Obama behind closed doors Thursday. No one’s talking, but we can bet one topic was PRISM and its negative impact on U.S. cloud businesses.
There aren’t many details on what was discussed, but it’s apparently just one of a series of meetings the Obama administration has held recently with tech industry representatives about privacy and surveillance.
Local news reports say he’s in town to meet with mobile carriers, which would be the second such trip since January, and his third since he became CEO in late 2011.
Bob Mansfield, who has led hardware development at Apple for years, has finally found a way to step back from that role after trying to retire last year. He’ll remain with the company, but is no longer on the executive leadership team.
Apple has found ways to keep the iPhone growing in emerging and also established markets. But it’s coming at the cost of slipping profit margins.
The shift in consumer media consumption from fixed, dedicated platforms to open, IP-based platforms caused problems for both in the second quarter. The period also saw a courtroom showdown between Apple and the Justice Department over ebook prices and a set-back for 3DTV.
To boost iPhone sales in stores, Apple is reportedly planning to offer new incentives to customers — perhaps more like the current Back to School offer — and start a trade-in program.
Performance grading will only be applied to half of the units per vesting cycle. The metric used to gauge Apple’s success will be “total shareholder return.”
A slow week will not stop The GigaOM Show! We dig into the D11 conference, get our heads in the cloud and talk Arrested Development
WIth talks between Facebook and Waze, the Israel-based mapping startup, reportedly breaking down, it now opens the door for other tech companies to grab the startup everyone is interested in.
One of these days we’re going to have new things to talk about in personal computing. Until then, we’re stuck talking about taxes, market-share battles, and promises of what’s to come.
Apple has hired former EPA Chief Lisa Jackson. Sounds like Apple’s attention to clean power for its data centers, lowering its carbon emissions and removing toxic chemicals from devices will only get stronger.
Here’s our account of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s appearance at D11. He didn’t announce an iWatch or iTV, don’t worry.
The reason for Apple’s being singled out for common U.S. tax minimization practices wasn’t completely explained by a U.S. Senate subcommittee Tuesday. But Tim Cook handled the grilling before Congress easily.
Cook will call for a revenue-neutral reform of the corporate tax code that does away with all tax expenditures, lowers tax rates and establishes a “reasonable” tax on companies’ earnings from overseas.
It’s an unfamiliar role for an Apple executive to be in. But Tim Cook will say that while he believes 35 percent is too high of a corporate tax, he also doesn’t think “zero” taxes on that money is reasonable.
Well no one saw this one coming: a comparison between Steve Ballmer and Tim Cook; the Future of Television according to Netflix; 3D printers and guns; plus Touchscreen Toddlers and San Francisco’s real estate inflation are some of topics covered this week.
January through March sales are always slower compared to the holiday buying period. And all of Apple’s major products — iPhone, iPad, iPad mini, Macs — were refreshed in the fall, leaving Apple with no major new device release during the quarter.
it will be interesting to see what kind of precedent this sets for how Apple gets along in its No. 2 market with the Chinese media, and more importantly, the Chinese government.
Open letters from the Apple CEO are few and far between, as are apologies. But from Tim Cook they come when he senses that public opinion is turning dangerously against the company — see also “Apple Maps.”
A year after Apple’s CEO topped Glassdoor’s employee rankings as best chief executive, he dropped down to No. 18 this year. SAP and Facebook’s CEOs are the new highest-rated CEOs.
A federal judge ruled Wednesday that Apple CEO Tim Cook must testify in the Department of Justice’s lawsuit against Apple for conspiring to fix ebook prices, citing Steve Jobs’ death as a key factor in her decision.
Groupon CEO Andrew Mason fired, Google CEO Sergey Brin feels emasculated by phones but not by nerd glasses and Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer is putting an end to remote work. Plus Oscars & Fashion. Here is our take on the week that was!
The rule was instituted just before Apple shareholders voted down a similar proposal earlier this week. And it comes in the midst of a six-month-long stock slide.
Apple is enamored with China — and rightfully so. However, in not paying attention to India, it has allowed world’s second-largest mobile market to become a mostly Android phenomenon, leaving upper end of the market to Samsung. Wrong strategy, if you ask me.
Apple’s CEO defended the company against attacks that it’s irrationally conservative about cash and reiterated that the board of directors is in “very active discussions” about returning more money to shareholders.
Tim Cook could use his speaking slot at the Goldman Sachs tech conference Tuesday to signal how he’s thinking about Apple’s excess cash.
All signs point to Apple reporting a great holiday quarter. But sinking investor confidence about Apple’s future will hang over the earnings call.
Tim Cook told China’s state-run news agency that he sees the country becoming its largest market. He’s not just flattering his hosts: the greater China region represents about 15 percent of Apple’s total revenue, bringing in $23.8 billion during Apple’s fiscal 2012.
From a further fragmented iPhone, to smart watches, Jony Ive’s heightened influence and defusing the thermonuclear patent wars, we take a look at the people, themes and products to watch for from Apple in the coming year.
Pop quiz: what secrets were revealed at the Apple-Samsung trial? Who shunned Microsoft’s mobile software back when it mattered? What had folks tweeting up a storm this year? Find out below.
In his very first television interview aired Thursday night, Apple CEO Tim Cook was typically cryptic about how his company is looking at the television market. He would only reveal that they have “intense interest” in it.
Apple’s CEO gave a long, wide-ranging interview on his first 15 months at the helm of the company. Here’s a quick round up of some of his more interesting comments, including more hints as to why Scott Forstall had to go.
Apple’s CEO reveals in an interview that he will invest $100 million of Apple’s money to build Macs in the U.S., starting next year. The reason: corporate responsibility.
Apple is loading up inventory of the iPhone 5 to meet the expected outsize demand of the holiday cycle and hitting big, important markets like China, South Korea and Brazil before the end of the year.
CEO Tim Cook is adding more employee perks, including personal time for projects. If these “perks” sounds rather run-of-the-mill to you, it’s because they are — for many modern companies. It’s yet another move by Cook to turn Apple into a more “normal” company.
Jobs wanted to “destroy” Android for copying his mobile operating system; HTC was the first company he targeted. But as Tim Cook has been molding Apple into a company he would run, it appears he decided keeping up Jobs’ total war wasn’t a sound, long-term investment.
Apple and HTC have agreed to settle all outstanding patent litigation between the two companies, signing a ten-year licensing deal but not disclosing financial terms. The settlement ends one of the most prominent battles over Google’s Android smartphone operating system.
Many designers say Apple’s once polished software has lost its luster. Olof Schybergson, CEO of design firm Fjord, believes Scott Forstall’s departure could spark a new era of software innovation for the company and define Tim Cook’s tenure.
Whoever Tim Cook chooses to run Apple retail has big implications for future growth and Apple’s valuable brand. While the timing of the search — heading into the holiday sales season — isn’t ideal, the decision also represents a big opportunity for Apple’s image.
Scott Forstall, the deposed iOS chief, has been a divisive figure inside Apple. His exit from Apple is likely to have an impact on the company’s stock price when the markets re-open. How are Apple insiders feeling about his exit? I asked a few of my sources.
Cook’s decision to let Scott Forstall go from his his position leading iOS software from Apple after a major misstep involving Maps shows that Cook is unafraid to remake Apple into a company that works for him, not just for Steve Jobs.
As part of the reorganization, other top executives will be expanding their roles at the company. Siri and Maps will be under the online services group headed by Eddy Cue, while iOS will be led by the head of Mac OS X.
At Apple’s iPad Mini launch event in San Francisco on Tuesday, the company also announced updates to its e-reading platform, iBooks. In addition, Apple is reportedly expanding the iBookstore to 18 more countries, including many in Latin America.
Tomorrow will mark a year since the death of Apple’s founder. Yet our industry still proclaims what he would think or do in any situation. We should follow the example of Tim Cook: while aiming to preserve Apple’s legacy, he’s still looking to the future.
As the mobile game is shifting from hardware to services, Apple needs to have more deep services of its own, rather than relying on competition. And maps is an important control point for the company.
Cook apologizes to users for the mapping debacle touched off by the iOS 6 launch last week. In an open letter Friday he points customers to other mapping products to use until Apple’s maps data gets better.
Small slates are expected to account for 32 percent of all tablet sales this year says iHS iSuppli. After nearly two years of saying there’s a market for the 7-inch tablet, it’s good to see the analysts reaffirm my own experiences. Now: Where’s that 7.85-inch iPad?
In the wake of Amazon’s Kindle Fire announcement today, Unicorn Labs’ co-founder Mark Sigal offers his analysis of Amazon’s strategy and how it compares with other platform players, particularly Apple and Google.
The impetus for these talks was reportedly Apple’s landmark victory in its Samsung patent case last Friday. Apple hasn’t sued Google directly for infringing on iOS patents with Android, but a jury found very easily that Google’s most important and most successful Android customer did.
Friday marks the one-year anniversary of Tim Cook stepping into the most challenging role in tech history: following in the footsteps of Steve Jobs as Apple CEO. Here’s a look at what we’ve learned about him in the past year, and what we still have yet to see.
When British retail veteran John Browett took over Apple’s store operation, plenty of critics lined up to question the decision. And now, with the company forced to apologize for cutting customer service staff, his appointment by Tim Cook looks even more baffling.
Apple executive Scott Forstall was asked to read an email in court Friday sent to him, CEO Tim Cook and others by fellow Apple executive Eddy Cue in January 2011 in which Cue said he believed there was a market for a 7-inch iPad.
Apple has long benefited from the relentless rumor machine that constantly speculates about new products it has coming up. But this arrangement is, by its own admission, now hurting its sales.
Here’s our daily pick of stories about Apple from around the web that you shouldn’t miss. Today’s installment: the political issues Apple cares about, Apple’s capital expenditure machine, closing the in-app purchase loophole, coming changes for the iPhone dock, and the ebook buying dilemma.
With $5,647 per square foot sales, nearly twice that of Tiffany’s, Apple’s a high-end retail player that pays like its products sell themselves and has so many applicants, it can afford to do just that. At some point, though, retention may pay off more.
Sceptics have raised concerns recently about Facebook’s ability to show continued revenue growth, particularly in the mobile market, but the social networking giant just got a big boost in that area from Apple, which has integrated Facebook’s features into the new version of its operating systems.
Apple was supposed to give third-party developers access to the Apple TV SDK today, enabling them to build apps for the TV platform. That didn’t happen, and for good reason: Apple platforms are a numbers game, and Apple simply doesn’t feel like playing yet.
Months after a third-party investigation into the labor practices at Foxconn, the electronics manufacturer who counts Apple as its most important customer, very little has improved, a Chinese labor rights group said Thursday.
Here’s our daily pick of stories about Apple from around the web that you shouldn’t miss. Today’s installment: Is Apple breaking even on its little Apple TV hobby?, whispers about a new Apple TV OS, and why it will never own a U.S. wireless carrier.
It’s an impossible act to follow. No, not the gospel choir and high-school marching band that preceded Apple (s aapl) CEO Tim…
Fortune’s cover story on Cook this week sketches a fascinating portrait of how Tim Cook is making his mark on Apple: Wall Street loves him, employees aren’t scared of him, he talks to Washington, and he’s still overseeing great new products, according to people who’ve seen them.
In a surprise to almost no one following the case, Samsung and Apple are not any closer to an agreement to stop suing each other following a rare face-to-face mediation session in San Francisco on Monday and Tuesday between the two companies’ CEOs.
Here’s our daily pick of stories about Apple from around the web you shouldn’t miss. Today’s installment: What Apple et al are up to with Nortel’s patent trove, why iPhone subsidies won’t be lowered any time soon, a contract-free iPhone 3GS and Tim Cook’s compensation.
The ongoing patent battle between the dominant smartphone providers, is about to get its prime-time drama moment, when the CEOs of Apple and Samsung will reportedly be brought before a U.S, federal judge for mediation on Monday. Get ready for Law & Order: Silicon Valley.
A Reuters report says Apple will be using some of its billions to help improve working conditions at some Foxconn plants. It’s an unexpected move for Apple, but one that’s starting to indicate a pattern in CEO Tim Cook’s short time at the company’s helm.
Is Apple Tim Cook finally weary of the stress and financial toll of maintaining mobile patent suits in courtrooms around the world? In perhaps his strongest public comments yet on the mobile patent disputes, Cook made his distate for litigation clear.
Apple and Samsung are closer than ever to a possible settlement in their long-running legal showdown over smartphone and tablet technologies. The both companies agreed to send their respective chief executives and general counsel to meet face-to-face in the next 90 days.
All this talk about how much money Google may or may not have made off of Android misses the point. Google’s decision to enter the mobile operating system battle wasn’t primarily about money — it was about ensuring competition in the next great personal computer market.
Tim Cook is in China, but it’s not just to shake hands with foreign leaders and executives. On Wednesday, Cook took a tour of a new iPhone factory owned by its contract manufacturer Foxconn in Zhengzhou, China, Bloomberg reported Thursday. Apple supplied photos.
On Monday Apple CEO Tim Cook met with government officials to talk “investment” in the country. This kind of trip to China is something Steve Jobs didn’t do, but China’s importance to Apple has changed drastically in just the last couple years.
In his short tenure as Apple CEO, Tim Cook has put his own stamp on Apple. Though it may not have been in Steve Jobs’ playbook, Cook has chosen to put the company’s enormous cash pile to work through a dividend and share buyback.
After being nagged about it for years by Wall Street, Apple on Monday said it has decided to cut into its significant cash reserves by offering a dividend of $2.65 per share each quarter, starting with the company’s fourth fiscal quarter of 2012, July 1.
Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Peter Oppenheimer will host a conference call Monday with investors and discuss company’s position on its massive pile of cash — nearly $100 billion — and what it intends to do with it.
Apple finally gave the wireless industry the 4G device it’s so long been craving. Even more importantly, LTE connectivity in the new iPad virtually assures similar treatment in the next iPhone. Apple has stepped up; now it’s the operators’ turn to lower mobile data prices.
The cat is out of the bag: Apple’s new tablet won’t be called iPad 3 or iPad HD, but simply the new iPad. That may sound like an odd choice at first, but it signals a profound change, as the iPad is dominating the post-PC world.
At its annual shareholder meeting today in Cupertino, Calif., Apple did not reveal much of anything new. While it was CEO Tim Cook’s first such meeting since taking over as CEO, the biggest news was what didn’t happen: there was no dividend for shareholders announced.
Apple doesn’t count iPads as laptops when they sell them, or when they account for them to shareholders. And we don’t use iPads the same way as PCs. So why are we throwing them in the same basket?
It’s been less than a week since Apple sent independent auditors to evaluate its third-party factories in China. The auditors have publicly given hints about what they’re finding, but aren’t getting into specifics. On Friday they told Bloomberg they were finding “tons of issues” at Foxconn.
It’s kind of amazing to consider how passé the iPod, the gadget that defined a decade of music, has become at Apple: the iPhone is the now…
It’s kind of amazing to consider how passé the iPod, the gadget that defined a decade of music, has become at Apple: the iPhone is the now the halo maker, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook.
At Goldman Sachs’ investor conference Tuesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook gave some rare color on how he views not only his own job as Steve Jobs’ successor, but also his views on the company’s $98 billion cash pile.
Apple stock hit an all-time high of $503.83 in early trading Monday, surpassing the magic $500 mark. It has since gone back down a bit, and at the time of publishing, AAPL was at $499.22. The stock has gone steadily upward since Tim Cook became CEO.
With $100B in cash, there have been quite a few whispers about an Apple dividend, starting when Tim Cook officially become CEO. But after years of wishful thinking on the part of longtime investors in Apple, it’s starting to look like it could actually happen soon.
Tim Cook has made his first major appointment at Apple — by handing over control of the company’s retail stores to a British businessman who has built his reputation largely through pile-em-high tactics and aggressive expansion.
Apple’s iPad sold 15.4 million units during the final calendar quarter of 2011, representing a 111-percent year-over-year increase in tablet sales. Android tablets may have gained market share during the same period, but it’s PC makers that should fear that growth.
Apple’s record quarter is prompting a lot of analysts and Wall Street watchers to up their estimates for the stock’s performance. A slew of investor notes released Wednesday suggest few believe Apple’s fortunes have reached their apex. Investors seem to agree, as Apple’s stock opened strong.
China is Apple’s second-most-important market after the U.S. But when it comes to finding other new emerging markets to sell its wares, Apple has its eye on Brazil. CEO Tim Cook spoke of the country’s growing importance during Apple’s quarterly earnings call on Tuesday.
The Apple TV sold 1.4 million units during the holiday quarter, about half of what Apple sold in the entire year prior. While it’s far from a mass-market device, its sales numbers show that even in a relatively small market, Apple dominates the competition.
Steve Jobs wouldn’t hear of a dividend or share buyback. But under the Tim Cook regime, it appears things might change. Apple hasn’t made plans public of what it will do with its $97.6 billion in cash, but the company is currently discussing the matter internally.
In his first full quarter as Apple CEO, Tim Cook delivered. For the first fiscal quarter of 2012 Apple posted its most impressive quarter yet: record revenue of $46.3 billion and earnings of $13.87 per share. The company also sold a record 37 million iPhones.
For the second time in three months a book is set to appear that endeavors to explain the “magic” and mystery of why Apple can do what it does. On Wednesday, Inside Apple, by Fortune reporter Adam Lashinsky, will be released. Here is our review.
The late Steve Jobs famously drew a $1 salary when he was CEO of Apple (NSDQ: AAPL), with other compensation coming in the form of millions…
Apple released its proxy materials ahead of its annual shareholder’s meeting Monday. Contained in the small print is lots of detail about the compensation of its most important executives and board members, including a note about the big raise that CEO Tim Cook got in November.
Expectations are sky-high for the iPhone and iPad maker. The reason? CEO Tim Cook and CFO Peter Oppenheimer put them there. At the last earnings call the pair went on record that the fiscal first quarter of 2012 would be the company’s biggest yet.
Apple will begin selling the iPhone 4S in China on Friday, Jan. 13, according to a press release from the company issued on Wednesday morning. In addition to finally arriving in Apple’s “fastest-growing region by far,” the iPhone 4S will also hit 21 other new countries.
Investor’s Business Daily has named Google’s Larry Page “CEO of the year” eight months after he took over for Eric Schmidt. Talk about being premature. There is no doubt he has made many moves, but it is not clear if those moves are going to pay off.
This is the first in a series of posts over the next week that will highlight key people, companies and trends to watch in 2012 in the secto…
There’s no denying Apple’s MacBook Air has been a solid hit with consumers: In March, reports indicated the company had sold 1 million in the two months following the major Oct. 2010 upgrade. And sales don’t seem to be slowing down, which begs the following question: Is the MacBook Air the peak of notebook design?

Apple will hold its next media event on Tuesday, Oct. 4 according to a new report. The event will supposedly unveil the Phone 5, and Apple CEO Tim Cook will be running the show, along with a supporting cast of Apple’s senior executive team.
Since Tim Cook took over as CEO for Steve Jobs, conventional wisdom has dictated that it would be business as usual at Apple. But it’s becoming clear Cook has some of his own ideas over how to run the company, starting with a new charitable-matching program.
Apple’s executive team is undergoing some changes, and one of those changes is a promotion for Eddy Cue to Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services. Cue will continue to oversee Apple’s online stores and iCloud and take on the challenge of iAd, too.
We witnessed the end of an era this week. Steve Jobs’ resignation as Apple’s charismatic leader has had, and will continue to have, an incredible impact on Apple’s image. But will this shift in power drastically alter the company, or will Apple continue its fiery trailblazing path of success? We interviewed GigaOM readers to get their thoughts about Apple’s future and whether its mystical aura will vanish — or at least diminish — along with Steve Jobs’ departure.

It’s a question many in tech have pondered: What would happen to Apple without Steve Jobs as CEO? Now that the iconic businessman and CEO of Apple officially resigned as CEO, we look at how elevating COO Tim Cook to CEO will–and won’t–bring changes.
Steve Jobs has stepped down as Apple CEO, according to a letter penned by Jobs himself and issued as a press release by the company. Jobs says he wants to remain as chairman of the board, as well as a director and employee of the company.
Steve Jobs, a remarkable man and a maverick CEO today resigned from the top job at Apple, making way for Tim Cook, currently company’s COO. Jobs wants to be the chairman of the company as he battles with his illness. It’s an end of an era.
When Apple released its third-quarter 2011 earnings results Tuesday, the numbers were, as is becoming almost customary for the Cupertino crew, a huge blow-out. Success was spread over many parts of the business, particularly the company’s flagship products. But those iPad results? Those were fairly stunning.
Apple executives expressed supreme confidence in the future of iOS during a meeting with Goldman Sachs analyst Bill Shope. And Apple COO Tim Cook thinks the iPad is on track for even more impressive success as the tablet market moves to eclipse PC sales.
