By Luke Jones on Thursday November 13, 2014

KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has predicted a big drop off in iPad sales from the upcoming fourth quarter of this year to the first quarter of 2015.

Nevertheless, Kuo is saying Apple's iPad sales will drop over 50% quarter to quarter.

According to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) that is not actually the case as the new iPhones are not taking market share or indeed customers from Android.

By Luke Jones on Thursday November 13, 2014

We are used to hearing about Android growing market share in just about every aspect, but there are a few areas where Google's mobile platform is not so dominant.

By Luke Jones on Tuesday November 11, 2014

Steve Wozniak is the man who literally built Apple while Steve Jobs built the empire. However, he has not worked for the Cupertino based company for nearly thirty years, so he is not connected to success or failure of the brand aside from being a shareholder. Wozniak of course loves the company he helped create, but he is also one of the most honest people to tap up to discuss Apple and its products.

By Luke Jones on Monday November 03, 2014

When Apple launched the Apple Watch back at the start of September, the company announced that the device would not be available until 2015.

She said in a video message to employees that the device will be arriving in spring next year.
