  • "How Apple Thrived in a Season of Tech Scandals" ["But this year, as it begins to roll out a new set of iPhones, the story line surrounding Apple has improbably shifted. In an era of growing skepticism about the tech industry's impact on society, Apple's business model is turning out to be its most lasting advantage."]  New York Times [Free/Paid Registration Required] 7:25 AM

  • "iPhone naming: 1 step forward, 4 steps back" ["Last year's models set new standards for complexity. We had an 8, 8 Plus, X and SE. That's two numbers, one Roman numeral, one paring of letters, plus an odd numerical gap between 8 and 10. Or, in Apple lingo, between 8 and X. It's hard to imagine how a family of only four products could end up with such needlessly complicated names—especially coming from the company that wrote the book on simplicity."]  Ken Segall's Observatory 7:28 AM
