Last week, I saw dozens of articles warning of key signals that Apple had finally hit the wall and that demands for its new iPhones would not reach the levels of the company’s recent heydays. Strike that, reverse it. Now it’s this week and we know that what we were actually witnessing was Apple’s most successful product launch ever. The company sold 9 million new iPhones over the weekend. And two hundred million people have already upgraded to iOS 7.

+ Some of those upgraders did so at the request of the NYPD.

+ Meanwhile, Blackberry has signed a preliminary deal to sell itself to a private investor for just under $5 bilion. That makes my old rotary phone worth right around $4 billion.
