    Apple will spend $1 billion to build a facility in Austin that will accommodate 15,000 employees. The headline describes the campus as "new." Yeah, if Apple plans to build something, I guess it would be new, wouldn't it? Doyl

    Apple to build new Austin headquarters campus, expand across US

    Cook said a smaller-than-expected number of people are upgrading to new models of iPhones. It seems not everyone feels a need to spend hundreds of dollars on a new phone when their current phone works just fine. Doy!

    Apple warns that iPhone sales could take a big hit from China slowdown
    CNN, Jan 2 2019 5:42 PM ET

    After decades of expansion, the Chinese economy is slowing down. Apple has warned investors to expect lower sales from the holiday quarter due primarily to "lower than anticipated" iPhone sales in China amid an ongoing trade war with the US as well as other factors such as the company offering cheaper iPhone battery replacements, according to a letter from CEO Tim Cook on Tuesday. "While we anticipated some challenges in key emerging markets, we did not foresee the magnitude of the economic deceleration, particularly in Greater China," Cook wrote. He pointed in part to "rising trade tensions" with the US.

    Global smartphone sales declined in 2018 for the first time ever. Can Apple reverse the trend in 2019? Maybe, maybe not -- but at least Apple will be trying.

    "iPhone X sales push Apple shares to record high" was the headline I posted a year ago. Here is where I say, "That was then, this is now." This news was just posted on the CNN Business live news feed:

    Apple's iPhone revenue falls 15%

    Apple said today its sales for the all-important holiday quarter hit $84.3 billion. The figure was slightly better than Apple had warned investors to expect but nonetheless represented a 5% decline from the same quarter a year ago. The sales decline was driven by a dip in iPhone sales, which Apple CEO Tim Cook previously said was primarily due to a slowdown in China. Apple's iPhone revenue for the quarter fell 15%, to $51.98 billion. Apple's sales in China also fell considerably. It reported revenue in the region of $13.17 billion, down from $17.95 billion in the same period a year ago.

    The last time Apple reported earnings results, it was the most valuable public company in the world. Today, it's fourth on the list. Apple stock is down about 30% since the last time it reported earnings in early November.

    Today, for the first time since December 3, Apple's market value surpasses that of Microsoft and Amazon -- quite a change from last week, when Apple ranked fourth. (Alphabet, parent company of Google, was third.)

    Apple is once again the most valuable publicly traded company in the world

    The new iPad Air has a bigger display. It, and the new iPad mini, will support Apple's wireless stylus pen, which for some odd reason is called Apple Pencil. The new models also have a much faster processor than previous models -- but will they sell?

    Last year, HBO spent around $2 billion creating its own original programming for its streaming service. Amazon Prime Video spent $4.5 billion and Netflix spent $6 billion. Apple spent a paltry-by-comparison $1 billion and will spend the same amount this year. Disney and WarnerMedia are launching streaming services this year. In order to compete, Apple will need to spend much more than $1 billion. Remember their short-lived reality series Planet Of The Apps? Oy vey!

    Apple event 2019: Everything announced at Apple's big March presentation
    CNN Business. Mar 25 2019 6:37 PM ET

    Apple CEO Tim Cook and a roster of big-name celebrities, including Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey, announced the company's much-anticipated entrance into the crowded video-streaming market at a press event today inside the underground Steve Jobs theater at its Cupertino headquarters. The company is producing its own lineup of films and TV shows that will be available via an updated version of the company's TV app on Apple devices. It is working with a number of existing streaming services, such as HBO, Starz and Showtime, to flesh out what's available there, in addition to its own streaming subscription. The company also announced its own mostly-digital credit card and a subscription magazine option for its news app.

    An Apple vice president said, "We've concluded AirPower will not achieve our high standards." This is shocking news. Who knew any big technology companies even had high standards? (Okay, maybe I'm being overly sarcastic.)
