Rumored Apple Plans Hint at Smart Speaker Battle Ahead


Apple reportedly has begun production of a high-end speaker with Siri-based digital assistant technology to compete directly with Amazon’s Alexa-based Echo speakers and the Google Assistant-powered Home speaker. Production is in the early stages, but the device could be unveiled as early as next week at WWDC, Apple’s annual developer conference. That would position the company to begin shipping in time for the winter holiday season. Inventec, which manufactures Apple AirPods, reportedly has landed the deal to build the intelligent speakers.

Samsung's Galaxy Note7 Assembly Lines Grind to Halt


Samsung has stopped production of its problematic Galaxy Note7 smartphones, according to multiple press reports Monday. The company had been offering replacements of the phone after issuing a recall due to defective batteries, but all four major carriers have stopped doing so, presumably because several of the replacements exhibited similar problems, including smoking and catching fire.

Apple, Inc CEO Tim Cook's piqued peek at Peak iPhone

Article Image Halfway through the last quarter, supply chain rumors of iPhone production cuts–purportedly “30 percent” of some unknown number–snowballed into an abominable snow-boogeyman of conjecture that claimed the end to iPhone growth was nigh and speculated about a downhill implosion of Apple’s sales overall, an embarrassing lack of interest in Apple’s newest iPhone 6s and a rapid evaporation of the world’s most valuable company. They were wrong, here’s why.
