Once again, Apple served up some impressive numbers during its quarterly earnings report on Monday, only to have investors back off and critics paint a bleak picture for the iPhone maker. Perhaps the only truly sad news was CEO Tim Cook's comments about "declining business" with the iPod, which took a year-over-year nose dive after hitting its peak back in 2008.

Was anyone else impressed by Apple's ninja-like skills with Tuesday's release of the iPad mini with Retina Display? Aside from one or two last-minute rumors the night before which were largely dismissed, everyone was focused on later in November, allowing Apple to pull yet another rabbit out if its hat.

Deutsche Telekom (DT)-owned carrier T-Mobile's iPhone exclusivity deal with Apple is expiring very soon. And, to make matters better for those not interested in being under the shackles of one mobile carrier, there have been no talks about extending that deal either.
