Kohl’s now lets you earn loyalty points through Apple Pay

Technology is supposed to make things easier, but sometimes having an app for everything can be more of a pain than it's worth.

Apple loses exclusive use of ‘iPhone’ trademark in China

The term "iPhone" is synonymous with Apple the world over, but in China, where trademarks are often ignored, a court has ruled that's not exactly the case. Apple has lost a trademark suit in the country against the Beijing-based Xintong Tiandi Technology, which sells leather goods like phone cases and handbags under the product name "IPHONE." This means the Cupertino company no longer has exclusive use of the iPhone brand name in China, as it must share it with the local accessories maker.

Tim Cook: loyalty rates have never been higher

Tim Cook: loyalty rates have never been higher

The once untouchable Apple has recently become the subject of the same kind of scrutiny, even prophecies of doom, that its rivals, like Samsung, have been enduring for the past years. All for a series of numbers for the past months that have failed to meet analyst projections. Some are going as far as saying that Apple, or at least innovation in Apple, is dead.

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. It's not as if this is the worst quarter Apple has ever had - far from it. Instead, it would appear that Apple's device sales have reached a saturation point. Many consumers that would be buying an iPhone, iPad, or Mac have already got one. As such, even Apple's astronomical sales numbers don't seem as spectacular as they have in the past.
