Clip Syndicate

iTunes chief Eddy Cue rebutted claims that Apple tried to undermine iPod competitors nearly a decade ago, saying Apple was fighting a "never ending battle" against hackers to protect its digital media player and popularize its then nascent music business. "Steve was mighty upset with me and the team whenever we got hacked," Cue, testifying in a class-action lawsuit against Apple, said Thursday in reference to former CEO Steve Jobs. "If a hack happened, we had to remedy that hack within a certain time period or they [the record labels] would remove all their music from the store." Apple was also trying to prevent others from breaking the ecosystem it had created between its iTunes software, iPod MP3 music player and iTunes online music store.

Requiem For An IPod Classic

Amid all the new products Apple introduced on Tuesday, the Cupertino giant also quietly but officially retired the iPod classic. This was more than a little ironic, considering U2's appearance alongside Tim Cook on with a splashy new Apple video called back to the iPod silhouettes campaign from the mid-2000s.

But while the phone's new features may be central to Amazon's goals, it may not be such a big selling point to consumers. Wall Street's reaction to the announcement was positive. The stock surged by as much as 3% in late trading Wednesday before ending the day up 2.7%.
