10 million iPhones sold since launch

The Telegraph 1 hour 29 minutes ago

Sept. 22 (Reuters): Apple Inc said it sold more than 10 million iPhones in the first weekend after its new models went on sale on Friday, underscoring strong demand for phones with larger displays.
Apple sells more than 10 million new iPhones in first three days
Apple's shares were little changed at $101.03 in early trading on the Nasdaq on Monday
More than 10m new iPhones sold in first 3 days
Apple Inc said it sold more than 10 million iPhones in the first weekend after its new models went on sale on Friday, underscoring strong demand for phones with larger displays. Chief Executive Tim Cook said the company could have sold even more iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models if supplies had been available. Analysts had estimated first-weekend sales of up to 10 million iPhones, after Apple booked record pre-orders of 4 million on Sept. 12, the day pre-orders opened. Apple's shares were little changed at $101.03 in early trading on the Nasdaq on Monday. The company's first-quarter revenue is likely to be 9 percent higher than Wall Street estimates, based on reported sales and projected demand for the new iPhones, Piper Jaffray & Co analyst Gene Munster wrote in a note. He said he expected earnings per share to be 12 per cent higher than estimates. "Despite the supply chain constraints around the iPhone 6 Plus and tightness around certain models of the iPhone 6, we believe (Monday's) strong print demonstrates that Apple executed extremely well in the face of severe supply constraints," Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White wrote in a note. First-day pre-orders of the new phones, which went on sale in 10 countries, far surpassed the 2 million first-day pre-orders for the iPhone 5 model two years ago. "While our team managed the manufacturing ramp better than ever before, we could have sold many more iPhones with greater supply and we are working hard to fill orders as quickly as possible," Cook said in a statement. Last year, Apple sold 9 million iPhone 5S and 5C models in 11 countries, including China, in the first weekend they were available. Sales of the latest models in China, the world's largest smartphone market, have been delayed by regulatory issues. Apple sold 5 million iPhone 5 handsets, 4 million iPhone 4S models and 1.7 million iPhone 4 units during the first weekend. The company said last week that many U.S. customers would have to wait until next month for their new iPhones due to strong demand. Apple routinely faces iPhone supply constraints, particularly in years that involve a re-design. The new iPhones will be available in 20 more countries on Sept. 26, Apple said. The shipment levels are positive, given that iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are not initially available in China, unlike iPhone 5S and 5C models, Stifel Nicolaus & Co analyst Aaron Rakers wrote in a note

Maha Poll: Shiv Sena raises demand after BJP's dismal UP, Bihar bypoll show

Economic Times 30 minutes ago

Shiv Sena plays tough in dividing seats with BJP for the coming Assembly elections; ups demand for greater share of seats.
Message to Vasundhara from Mumbai
New Delhi, Sept. 22: When Amit Shah named Om Prakash Mathur his principal interlocutor with the Shiv Sena last week, quite a few in the party had wondered why the 62-year-old, not part of the BJP president's organisational team, had been pulled out of the woodworks virtually.
BJP to convince Parrikar to contest 2017 assembly polls as CM candidate: Tendulkar
Partys State Unit Chief Says Underperforming Ministers Will Improve Soon
BJP gears up to go solo in Maharashtra
The impasse over seat sharing between Shiv Sena and the BJP continues. With no negotiations held between the alliance partners on Monday, both parties were ready with a list of 288 candidates, clearly indicating their preparedness and willingness to go solo. Sources from both parties said the bone of contention between the alliance partners is less about seat sharing and more about getting the chief ministerial post. No discussions were held on Monday and we are not going to talk with Shiv Sena as of now. Lets see what the Sena has to say about the seat sharing. One should talk across the table and not through the media, senior BJP leader and leader of opposition in the assembly, Eknath Khadse, said. BJP has convened a meeting of its senior leaders on Tuesday morning and is expected to arrive at a decision. The comment came after Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, at a national executive meeting held in Mumbai, told the media, instead of talking directly to its ally, that the BJP should stick to contesting 119 seats. However, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut too said the party is ready to negotiate. We want to continue the alliance and are ready to talk, Raut said. Sources in the Sena said that Uddhav might offer 122 seats to BJP, three more than his earlier offer. Party sources said that the egotiations were held over the phone between Uddhav and BJP national president Amit Shah. There was no official comment. However, party sources said the controversy is more about the chief ministerial position than contesting more seats. Shiv Sena has declared Uddhav Thackeray as the chief ministerial candidate, a move that has not gone down well with BJP leaders in the state, who considered themselves to be in the race. Union minister Nitin Gadkari, state president Devendra Fadnavis, Eknath Khadse, Vinod Tawde, Pankaja Munde are among the interested candidates for the chief ministers post. BJP president Amit Shah told the state leadership on Sunday at a meeting held at Delhi that the CM would be from BJP, refusing to accept Thackeray as the CM, a senior BJP leader said. BJP state president Fadnavis said a decision on the leadership could be taken after the polls. The people of Maharashtra will decide the chief minister. The chief minister will be from the party having more MLAs. The formula for the chief minister was decided with late Sena supremo Balasaheb then, Fadnavis said. Meanwhile, both the parties have finalised their list of 288 candidates and have told the local leadership to prepare for fighting alone. Bharatiya janta Party leaders said that they might release the first list of 70 candidates on Tuesday. Shiv Sena too has its list of 288 and has asked local leaders to wait till Monday evening. A meeting of the party MPs was held at Matoshree, headed by Uddhav Thackeray on Monday. At the meeting, Thackeray discussed the changing political scenario and reportedly told Sena leaders to be ready for whatever comes. There are only five days left to file nominations for the assembly polls, but none of the major parties have come up with their lists. Local leaders and probable candidates are upset with the inordinate delay, as they will get only 15-16 days for campaigning. First time candidates would have more trouble with less number of days in hands to campaign. We have kept the candidates ready with their affidavits, but everything depends upon final decision, a district leader from Sena said. Meanwhile, toughening its stand on seat sharing in Maharashtra, Congress on Monday held discussions on the prospects of contesting all the 288 Assembly segments in the state alone but made it clear that it will take a decision only after NCP makes its position clear. "We have held discussion on all seats," said Madhusudan Mistry, AICC general secretary in-charge of the central election committee after a meeting of the top election body chaired by party president Sonia Gandhi discussed the issue in detail here. Mistry, however, parried questions on an alliance with the NCP, which has so far not budged from its demand of 144 of the 288 seats in Maharashtra assembly on a 50:50 formula.

I am not aware of any such diktat given by police to the hotel authorities about their staff. We were just concerned about the Tibetans, said Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) A.K. Sharma. Vikas Sahay, JCP, Special Branch, too said he was not aware of any such order having been issued. The management of hotel Hyatt Ahmedabad expressed surprise over the reports and claimed all staffers, including those from the northeast, did duty on September 17 when Mr. Xi had a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi there.

Ahmedabad hotel 'diktat' against NE staff: MHA orders probe
The Home Ministry today ordered a probe into allegation that employees of northeast origin at an Ahmedabad hotel were asked to stay away during Chinese President Xi Jinpings recent visit to the city. Sources said the Ministry asked the Intelligence Bureau to find out the veracity of the order and, if so, who issued it and why. There were also reports that northeast origin employees at a mall in Ahmedabad were asked not to come for duty on the day Xi visited the Gujarat capital last week. The IB has been asked to send its findings by tomorrow after probing the allegations of both the incidents. The sources said that the Home Ministry ordered the probe taking serious objection to the allegations. Last week, taking umbrage at the reports, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi had said, "It is an insult to the northeast. They doubted us as if we are not patriots. Are we not citizens of India? This is not good for the region." Meanwhile, the Arunachal Students Union Delhi (ASUD) has also condemned the alleged "racial segregation" meted out to people from North-East during the Chinese Presidents visit. Keeping away employees from North East from hotels in Ahmedabad, where the Chinese Premier stayed, to "prevent any anti-China protest in respect to Tibet" is a great humiliation to the people of the region, the outfit said in a statement. "Are Northeasterners not Indian? Why do we have to prove our identity as Indian again and again?... it is very disheartening when such discrimination and segregation comes from the top level," it said. The outfit lamented that government has "neither settled the issue of stapled visa nor has taken firm stand on Chinese showing Arunachal Pradesh in its political map".

IITs to consider aggregate board marks

Business Standard 4 hours 31 minutes ago

This is in addition to the top-20 percentile condition: Ashok Thakur
Relief for students as IITs ease admission criteria
About 200 students with top scores in JEE, considered tough, could not get into the IITs as they were not in the top-20 percentile league.
IIT eases norm, allows board exam marks; 20 percentile to stay
Chennai : In a significant decision which is set to benefit students aspiring to enter IITs, the Council meet of the prestigious institutions here today decided to consider the aggregate marks secured in Class 12 Board Examinations for admission. “In addition to the top-20 percentile condition, it has been decided now to give another provision [to aspirants seeking admission] which is the marks secured in the board exams,” Secretary, Union Ministry of Human Resources, Ashok Thakur told reporters here. The 48th meeting of the Council of the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) was held here today at the IIT Madras, chaired by Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani. Presently, only students those who are in the top-20 percentile in their Class XII board exams are admitted to the 16 IITs across the country. Also, they must have cleared the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) advanced. About 200 students with top scores in JEE, considered tough, could not get into the IITs as they were not in the top-20 percentile league. Now, with the new norm, even if a student does not figure in the 20 percentile category, she or he could aspire to get into the IITs provided they meet the minimum marks prescribed by the Council. Briefing about the deliberations, Thakur said the Council approved the new norm of marks secured after due deliberations. According to the norm, an aspiring OBC and general category candidate should have secured 75 per cent and those belonging to SC, ST, and disabled section should have got 70 per cent in class 12 board exam to be considered for admission in addition to clearing the JEE. “This norm will bring tremendous releif to students. Now marks secured formula will be there alongwith 20-percentile rule.” Replying to a question, Thakur said the heads of the IITs in Chennai and Kanpur have been given the responsibility of preparing a framework for a new India-centric ranking system for Indian instituions of higher learning. When introduced, the system will cover the IITs and the Central universities and later it would be extended to UGC funded institutions. “This ranking system will be India centric. The parameters will be relevant to India. The IITs will take the lead and devise the framework for Indian institutions.” By March 2015, the framework for the ranking system is expected to be completed. A pan-Indian IIT-alumni centre, intended to be an interface between the industry and academia, will be set up at Bangalore. “The concept has been approved by the Council,” he said.
