Apple Remains World's Top Tablet Vendor - IDC



According to the latest reports from J.D Power and IDC, Apple currently remains world's top tablet manufacturer with 22.8% market share and 12.3 million iPad units shipped in the third quarter of this year. Still, the researchers claim that Apple's tablet sales are weaker than in the year-ago quarter. The manufacturers of the lower-cost tablets, for example, Lenovo or RCA, saw a noticeable increase in sales in 2014 and that means that more and more people prefer cheaper, but pretty efficient and reliable Android devices to hi-end and expensive iOS products.

Many OS X Yosemite Users Encounter Wi-Fi Issues



According to a number of complaints that can be found on Apple's Support Communities forum, a number of OS X Yosemite users have encountered some issues with Wi-Fi connectivity. The Wi-Fi connections are extremely slow or, in some cases, they disconnect within few minutes of work. It should be noted, however, that the number of users that have reported Wi-Fi issues is relatively small. Nevertheless, I believe the guys from Cupertino should pay attention to the complaints and fix the bug inside of the recently-released OS X Yosemite as soon as possible.

Meet Another Possible Apple Watch Rival: Microsoft Band



More than a month after Apple, Microsoft has today officially announced its smartwatch. The new wearable device is called Microsoft Band and I must admit it is totally different from the Apple Watch and other market rivals. It should be noted, however, that it is very difficult to call the new gadget a smartwatch; because of its design and the price tag of $199, it is rather a fitness tracker.

Apple CEO Tim Cook Is 'Proud to Be Gay'



In a letter written for Bloomberg Businessweek, Tim Cook declared his support for human equality and for the first time publicly admitted that he's gay. I must say, this was quite a surprising step as earlier Apple CEO was keeping his personal life away from public. According to the letter, Cook decided to tell about his sexuality to "bring comfort to anyone who feels alone" as well as to "inspire people to insist on their equality."

Several days ago, I told you about OS X Yosemite adoption rate, which at that time was 12.8%. Today I'd like to talk about Apple's iOS 8 and its adoption rate.

Apple's Vice President Greg Joswiak Apologizes for iOS 8.0.1 Bug



Greg Joswiak, Apple's VP of iPhone marketing, earlier today had an interview with Re/code reporters Ina Fried and Walt Mossberg. During this interview, Apple representative apologized for the iOS 8.0.1 bug that made it impossible for many iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users to access Touch ID and cellular service on their smartphones. Joswiak claimed that a problem with iOS 8.0.1 was caused by the software distribution and not by the flaw in the operating system as it was believed earlier. Anyway, it was a terrible mistake, so I guess the guys from Cupertino should find out whose fault was that.
