The latest numbers reveal a decline of 40 percent in the number of iPhones stolen in San Francisco and 25 percent in New York between September 2013 and September 2014.

This is Tim: Cook at the Goldman Sachs Conference

This is Tim: Cook at the Goldman Sachs Conference

Ed: Tim Cook spoke at length during today's Goldman Sachs conference on Apple's insane first quarter, China, the Apple Watch, and so much more. Here's a transcript of his remarks, with occasional interjection by the Goldman Sachs interviewer.

On the strongest quarter ever

Y'know, we're fortunate to have a good year, but maybe the most important answer to that first would be that we don't believe in such laws as laws of large numbers. This is sort of, uh, old dogma, I think, that was cooked up by somebody and Steve [Jobs] did a lot of things for us for many years, but one of the things he ingrained in us [is] that putting limits on your thinking [is] never good.

Apple crossed $700 billion: Another milestone for the world's most valuable company

Shares of Apple stock today reached another all-time high, which in and of itself isn't shocking — Apple does that on a regular basis — but today market the point where Apple as a company crossed the $700 billion line. Apple has been the world's most valuable publicly-traded company for some time, but its skyrocketing share price has seen it rapidly pull away from every other company on the planet.

Never mind iOS 9, iPhone stability and performance improvements are already coming!

Never mind iOS 9, iPhone stability and performance improvements are already coming!

iOS 7 was a complete interface and interactivity redesign and iOS 8, a complete functional upgrade. That led to some complaints that Apple was putting innovation ahead of platform stability. This followed years of complaints about iOS looking stale and missing features, of course, but fair enough. In the rush to get major changes out the door, especially when new products depend on them, there were some stumbles along the way.

iOS 9, anticipated for this fall, will focus more on stability. Recent updates like iOS 8.1.2 and iOS 8.1.3, however, and upcoming updates like the in-beta iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.3, and the currently internal iOS 8.4, make it clear Apple isn't waiting on the next version of iOS to address issues. They're already addressing them.

The keys to Apple's to success in China: People, stores, and partnerships

Apple's been making great strides in China, and CEO Tim Cook today elaborated on how. China's been long regarded as a market that should have been challenging for Apple, but the explosive growth seen by Apple in the last quarter was fueled in part by the anticipated iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but also by massive growth in China.

Alfred Remote gives you a remote launchbar for your Mac

Alfred Remote gives you a remote launchbar for your Mac

Since my early Mac-using days, I've been an avid shortcuts user — keyboard commands, QuickKeys, launchbars, you name it. I probably use my keyboard more than my trackpad for navigating through programs and windows, though I've grown to love the multitouch gestures for swiping screens on my 11-inch Air.

Given that I'm also multitasking with my iPhone almost all the time, it makes a crazy amount of sense that a launcher utility like Alfred would take advantage of that second screen to create a remote control. Enter Alfred Remote: The app uses local sharing with the Alfred app to turn your iPhone into a launchbar for your Mac.

The highlight of the new Anki Overdrive, due out in September 2015, is a modular track that replaces the roll-out mat of the first edition. The individual segments of the track are held together by magnets embedded in the edges, and can even be assembled to build bridges that cross the track or have gaps that cars must jump.
