    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

  • The end of the Apple dynasty? Crunch Network

    The end of the Apple dynasty?

    Apple is misplaying the hand Steve Jobs left them, making themselves vulnerable to competition for the first time since iPod. The company has always been at least one step ahead of the competition in hardware advancements and software experience.
