11/29/2018, 08:11 am

Bloomberg had a stunningly important -- and apparently stunningly wrong -- news story about an alleged iCloud spy chip and now it's hoping we'll forget about it. Two months on, the company has a responsibility to either prove or retract it, and it's a responsibility the publication is avoiding.

11/27/2018, 08:11 am

Apple raised eyebrows when it announced it would no longer be detailing quarterly unit sales for iPhone, iPad, and Macs starting in the December quarter. Various pundits have sought to portray this as Apple having "something to hide," and have added it to their listicles of "bad news" that various writers keep insisting is "piling up" for Apple.

Before China iCloud spy chip allegations, Bloomberg published these five incorrect stories about Apple

10/10/2018, 08:10 am

Media personalities have been bending over backward to find a way to square the claims made by Bloomberg in its "China Hack" story with a series of strongly worded denials from Amazon and Apple insisting that the report was "wrong and misinformed."

Bloomberg obsessed with Google's Pixel, Apple's iPhone Supply Chain -- but not Google's Pixel Supply Chain
