Top Apple Suppliers Post Solid Sales as iPhone Concerns Persist

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. and Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. both posted a 5.6 percent rise in November sales, a solid figure given Apple suppliers around the globe have taken turns to cut back on output or revenue outlooks to reflect waning demand for the U.S. company’s most important product. While reflecting just 30 days of business, TSMC’s and Hon Hai’s performance comes in the middle of the year’s busiest quarter and may help balance the narrative that Apple’s latest line-up -...

Consider how, in recent years, the fashion at Apple, Inc., has been to make everything thin, light, and stylish.

VMware's newest Amazon partnership proves that the $65 billion company can thrive in the cloud wars after all, says Wall Street (AMZN, VMW)

VMware is showing steady growth with a 14% year-over-year revenue growth this past quarter, driven by its revitalized cloud strategy — an area in which it had historically been seen to be weak.
