    An Apple analyst is saying next year's iPhones will use bigger, newly designed batteries
    Business Insider, Dec 8 2017

    KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo recently suggested that Apple would make three new iPhones next year. Two are expected to be successors to this year's iPhone X: a new, equal-size 5.8-inch model and an additional Plus-size 6.5-inch variant. There will also reportedly be a third "budget" iPhone, which will keep using LCD displays and come at 6.1 inches in size. The iPhone X's direct successors will reportedly use an optimized version of the L-shaped batteries inside the iPhone X. The cheaper LCD iPhone is said to stick to a less costly, traditional rectangular shape battery instead.

    A "music recognition app." A lot of the songs I hear nowadays I wouldn't really call "music" -- but I digress.

    Apple to buy music recognition app Shazam for $400 million

    This thread is titled "iPhone X sales push Apple shares to record high." Now we know one of the reasons iPhones sell so well. Reddit members discovered -- and Apple acknowledged -- that iPhones have software that slows the devices down as the batteries age. Users then go out and buy a new phone when probably all they needed to do was replace the battery.

    Well, it didn't take long for a class action lawsuit to be filed:

    A phone that costs $999 (plus tax) isn't selling as well as Apple had hoped. Is anyone surprised?

    Analysts cut iPhone X shipment forecasts, citing lukewarm demand
    High price and few innovations dimming buyer interest.

    Apple not expected to make big acquisitions with repatriated cash
    Investors Business Daily, Dec 25 2017 12:55 PM

    Apple is likely to bring $214 billion in foreign profits banked overseas to the U.S. next year thanks to tax reform legislation, but don't expect the company to make any transformative acquisitions with the cash. Gene Munster, an Apple analyst managing partner at venture capital firm Loup Ventures, said in a blog post, "With the new tax structure we expect Apple will bring $214 billion back to the U.S. using a 15.5% one-time repatriation tax rate. "We don't expect this cash will change Apple's mergers and acquisitions philosophy, which will likely continue to be focused on sub-$1 billion technology acquisitions."

    In the past, some analysts have speculated Apple might buy Netflix or Tesla. Instead, Apple is likely to increase its share buybacks and dividends with the foreign cash, Munster said. Apple has $269 billion in cash and investments, of which $252 billion is overseas. Apple also is likely to use the foreign cash to boost its spending on research and development in areas such as artificial intelligence and augmented reality.

    Don't spend $999 (plus tax) on that new iPhone just yet -- his is from The Motley Fool:

    Apple rumored to be cutting iPhone prices in early 2018
    Could price cuts push demand up for Apple's most important products?

    A 47% pay increase is called a "bump"? A "bump"?

    Apple CEO Tim Cook gets 47% pay bump
    The Wrap, Dec 28 2017 2:15 PM

    Apple CEO Tim Cook enjoyed a 47% jump in compensation in 2017, pulling in $12.8 million for the year, including a $9.3 million cash bonus. It’s a healthy jump from the $8.5 million he banked in 2016 when Apple’s revenue dipped slightly. But the company bounced back in 2017, spurred on by impressive Watch sales and the release of two new iPhones; its stock performance mirrored Cook’s compensation increase, running 47% since January 1.
