Analyst forecasts concerning iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S





Gene Munster, a famous analyst, has published a research note concerning his thoughts about the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S.

According to Munster, the iPhone 5C will not boast  Siri and it will replace iPhone 4S and will be selling for $300 off contract.

In terms of the phone itself, we expect the cheaper phone to have a plastic casing, 4" display, and lower end internal specs (processor, camera, memory, etc.) than the 5S/5 line up. Additionally, we believe that Apple may exclude some software features, such as Siri, which we note was not an option on the iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 upon launch.

Apple's request to suspend ruling in e-book pricing case was denied



According to the Associated Press, the court denied Apple's request to suspend the ruling in the E-Book case.

A judge on Friday refused a request by Apple to temporarily suspend her ruling that it violated antitrust laws by conspiring with publishers to raise electronic book prices in 2010.
Judge Denise Cote, ruling from the bench in Manhattan federal court, declined to withdraw the effect of last month's ruling while Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple Inc. appeals.

Last month, Apple was found guilty for conspiring with publishers to fix prices in the iBooks store instead of using the typical agency model.
The five settling publishers did not agree with the proposed punishment, claiming that it would hurt them more. than Apple. The punishment implies that Apple will be obliged to discount their ebooks for five years.

Microsoft is abasing iPad. Again [video]



Microsoft has launched an ad attacking Apple. Or should be say launched again? It is not the first time Microsoft is  comparing its devices with iPad. The ad always claims Microsoft products to be much cooler. They feature exactly the specifics iPad lacks. For example, a built-in back stand, USB port, and keyboard accessory. All of these accessories are options on the iPad, though it still can be considered a disadvantage. Are they really? The price for such an ad is quite high to pay. It was announced that Microsoft lost 900 million dollars in the last quarter due to Surface discount.

Another interesting feature is that in all ads of such type the Voiceover says,”This isn’t going to end well for me, is it? Nope definitely not ending well.”  However, financial research shows that it is the Surface which is likely to be in trouble rather than Apple’s iPad.
