Apple, Google and others urge Obama to allow surveillance disclosures (FirstPost)
Dozens of companies, non-profits and trade organisations including Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) sent a letter Thursday pushing the Obama administration and Congress for more disclosures on the government’s national security-related requests for user data. Together with LinkedIn Corp (NYSE:LNKD), Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ:YHOO), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), Twitter and many others, the companies asked for more transparency of secret data gathering in the letter addressed to President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, National Intelligence Director James Clapper, National Security Agency (NSA) Director General Keith Alexander and national security leaders in Congress.

Apple needs new features to make Apple TV exciting (USAToday)
As I near the end of my membership to the key 18-to-34 demographic for advertisers, I realize what an awful member I was. Throughout most of those precious years, I carelessly fast-forwarded through commercial breaks, installed ad blockers on my Web browsers, flipped past magazine ads without a second glance, even openly mocked the particularly egregious ads I did happen to see to friends and family. And I doubt I was really unique in that respect. I, like many others, have become pretty disaffected with advertising and grown to be passively resistant to the heartless corporate pandering that occurs every waking moment of our lives. In my late teens and twenties, I angrily defied the ad inundation and took on a furious, Bill Hicks-level contempt toward anyone who perpetuated the scheming capitalist machine that spent billions upon billions of dollars for catchy jingles, memorable slogans, and overpaid celebrity pitchmen.

Apple shares technical analysis (CityIndex)
As shown on the daily chart of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), the price has been rising within a clear bullish leg for the past three weeks after turning back to the upside from major support around 385. This support level was last hit in April, when Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) made a 16-month low right at 385 before bouncing. Since then, the price retested that low three weeks ago in late June when it dipped back down to 388 before making its most recent recovery. While the price has essentially been entrenched within a trading range consolidation for the past five months, the overall trend since the September 2012 highs around 705 has been markedly bearish.

Will Apple Delay the iPhone 5S to Deliver a Bigger Screen? (AAPL) (Benzinga)
It’s the question on everybody’s mind: would Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) really delay the next iPhone to add a larger display? Apple was expected to release an iPhone upgrade comparable to the iPhone 4S, one that would improve upon the existing model without making too many drastic changes. But after months of hearing about this familiar release, the rumor mill has turned its attention to a more significant revision. According to a Bloomberg translation of a Commercial Times report, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) might delay the iPhone 5S to increase the screen size from four inches to 4.3 inches. This minor display increase may appear to be an unlikely cause for delay, especially when Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been so content to go its own path. The company famously resisted the lure to release a smartphone with a large screen for four years. Finally in 2012, Apple caved when it stretched the Retina Display from 3.5 inches to the four-inch model available today.

Apple Inc. (AAPL): A Fading Brand? (ETFDailyNews)
Faith in tech giant Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), while not at an all-time low, is down considerably from last year. And as should come as no surprise, its share price has followed its sinking public sentiment. Especially as rivals like Samsung and Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) take aim at areas Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) alone once dominated, the future seems less certain for Apple than it has for some time. Given all the pain its investors have endured over the last year, is it finally time to admit that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s lost its mojo? In this edition of our Ask a Fool series, Fool contributor Andrew Tonner explains why he still believes Apple has plenty of room to run.
