Mac360 has the ironically titled Apple Is Late To Yet Another Technology Party. Personally, I like hand-sized phones, but I do understand that for some other folks their phone is their computer, and the ability to change sizes could be useful.

From the WSJ article:
Apple has so far built mostly lower-end models in India. Wistron Corp. , another Taiwanese contract manufacturer, began assembling the SE model, then Apple’s cheapest, in the southern state of Karnataka in 2017. Those were the first iPhones made in India, and Wistron has since started assembling the 6S model there as well.
Foxconn is currently considering producing higher end, pricier iPhones in India, including models with organic light-emitting diode, or OLED, displays, the people familiar said.
This is a non starter IMHO. is ALREADY supplying the iPhones wanted by Indians.
has never cared about the short term price of AAPL! & "We run the business for the long term, not the 90-day clock"
I've skied 4 of the last 5 days, which while is a good escape from watching the stock price move (though I did read a few articles on the lift today, including the first I remember in a long time with beleaguered in the title (from Bloomberg?). Our family was hitting the fresh powder yesterday at Diamond Peak, and then I hit the day-after stuff on freshly opened terrain at Homewood today, getting the first and last chair, and generally getting worn out but having 25 runs in up to knee high powder, after they got 70" in the past week.
Anyways, I enjoy getting to chat with people on the chair lift, often people from out of town. Rarely it's celebs, like Mel Gibson last year (didn't realize it at the time). This time both Saturday and Monday I went up with a guy who is in a similar job and area to where I worked at Apple. I'm not into trying to pry any secret info out, but it was nice to hear that they are still playing volleyball at lunch at Apple, and that the new campus is maybe 99% moved in.
Don't bother hunting for that Bloomberg article. The short of it was that one analyst pointed out that AAPL is 20% off the S&P (presumably based on P/E), where it has averaged the past 5 years, so it questioned whether the Jan 2 miss info is fully priced in, or if "AAPL may go lower!!!!!"
In sadder news, at least for an inanimate object, my wife's 8+ got a crack in the glass on the powder day, and then another today. It has a small case, and has been dropped, but she didn't think anything happened to it on Monday. She wondered if it was the cold temps. I think it's more likely that it's like a windshield, that it had a chip or something, and then the cold temps (especially if there was any moisture) made the crack form. Apple wants a lot to replace the whole screen, but it looks like just the glass part is fairly reasonable to buy and do yourself. Either way, we're better off than our neighbor's iPhone 7 or 8, which fell in the snow and wasn't found....until the next morning, when her son was running the snowblower. It was partially intact, and she was brining it to a shop yesterday, in hopes they could help retrieve her 2500 photos that she wasn't managing to find on iCloud.
(Side note (as if everything else wasn't already), the new battery in my 5S is doing great, but had it's first "low temperature shutoff" issue today. After running a ski tracking app for around 7 hours, but around 20-25 degrees outside and the battery down to around 40%, it shut down. This was a lot better than before replacing it, where in the early summer it shut down when around 50 degrees outside and only an hour or so of a bike route tracking app. Guess I need to move it to a more-inner pocket)
mercel: It's been a long strange trip - good to see you're still around (and in AAPL -my assumption).

sponge: Regarding the future of VR, I think it will be huge. I was a gamer when I was in college. But as an adult I lost interest. Last fall I flew up to visit my son at college and check out his new Vive set up. After playing with it for the weekend, I was
