Judging from sources in the supply chain, Apple appears to be anticipating yet another runaway hit for the wearable device, and we've got all the details in our Thursday Morning Report.

Last week, the Home Depot suffered a devastating security breach in which 56 million credit card numbers and 53 million e-mail addresses were stolen. By the time a massive story hit The Wall Street Journal regarding the issue, investigators revealed that someone had managed to get access to the files through a Windows security breach. And what do you do when that happens? If you're in charge at Home Depot, apparently, you buy your executives a bunch of MacBooks and iPhones to replace their old Windows devices.
Americans might be divided on the meaning of last night's election results, but at least the Apple faithful can unite in enjoying another botched product placement from an Apple competitor.

What a difference a day makes! On Wednesday, developers grappled with a potentially major setback for iOS 8 widgets, while Microsoft launched its own multi-platform Health initiative.

Our Tuesday Morning Report has the details, along with new iPad keyboard solutions from Logitech and a huge cloud storage bump from Microsoft.
Developers, start your engines! Apple released the gold master for OS X Yosemite on Tuesday, and is now asking developers to begin submitting their updated apps, suggesting that a release is just around the corner. Speaking of gold, rumor has it that the next iPad Air will be available in just that color. And what kind of trick is Microsoft trying to pull now? That and more in today's Morning Report!
The debate over the flexibility of Apple's new iPhone 6 models hasn't quite died down just yet, with Consumer Reports seemingly hoping to become the last word on the subject. Our Monday Morning Report also takes a look at Microsoft's first New York flagship store only a stone's throw from a rival, while AT&T gets generous with Mobile Share Value data for your new iPhone or iPad.
