Apple breaks its revenue streak with Q2 2016 YoY decline

It's tough times in tech, and there's no better example of that than Apple recording its first year-over-year decline in quarterly revenue since 2003.

Down, down, down: iPhone, iPad and Mac sales all dive in Q2 2016

This afternoon Apple reported their financial Q2 2016 earnings report for investors, and with it, falling sales in devices of all sorts.

KGI: iPhone 7 will have nothing attractive, shipments to fall

KGI: iPhone 7 will have nothing attractive, shipments to fall

If famed KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is to be believed, Apple's market nightmares are far from over. Even though the company already forecast what would its slowest iPhone sales growth early this year, it's fortune isn't going to turn for the better for the rest of 2016.

Kuo attributes this to certain factors, chief among which will be an iPhone 7 that will have nothing attractive to offer. Or so says the analyst.

FBI director hints agency paid more than $1.3m to unlock iPhone

Public information about the FBI’s method for unlocking the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone is slight, and so we’re forced to piece together what precious little information is available. Take, for example, FBI Director James Comey’s recent statement about how much the FBI had to pay to get the iPhone unlocked: more than he will make in the remainder of his time serving as the bureau’s director, which a little bit of math estimates as $1.3 million.
