    Apple’s bulletproof Wall Street growth story came to a halt this year

    This year was an interesting one for Apple — but not necessarily in a good way. iPhones aren’t selling the way they used to, the Apple Watch isn’t a big hit and Alphabet is emerging as a bigger and formidable competitor.

    Nintendo learns a multi-billion dollar lesson that Mario is no guarantee for success

    Nintendo has not had a good past few days, despite its original superstar Mario finally hitting the iPhone.
