Happy May Day! April sure flew by quickly, but it had plenty of highs and lows and the month ended on the higher end of the scale, judging from our last recap from the month. We've got a pair of Tim Cook tales to bookend today's edition, along with a Vine update, Hulu statistics and the CEO of BlackBerry predicting the end of the tablet within five years -- and he doesn't mean the company's own. Stay with us, won't you?
The middle of April is behind us, which means corporations will begin posting quarterly earnings for the first three months of 2013. First out of the gate: Verizon, who's off to a great start, and Nokia, who still isn't out of the woods quite yet.
It's been four long years since T-Mobile has seen subscriber growth in the United States, but the fourth-place carrier is finally getting a little good news now that the first quarter of 2013 is behind it.
AT&T users in rural areas may soon find a big improvement in their service, thanks to the carrier buying up what remains of the former Alltel, which was previously acquired by Verizon Wireless. Confused? Don't be.
While Apple has an ever-increasing presence in China, the world's largest cell phone carrier based there is still curiously deficient on offering an iPhone -- but that may change as executives from the two companies sit down for a chat.
It's gotta hurt being the only major U.S. carrier without the iPhone, and the proof of this dilemma is certainly being shown in T-Mobile USA's second-quarter, during which time more than half a million subscribers jumped ship for greener pastures.
