Too Long; Didn't Read

This week, Apple (+14.3%) surpassed Amazon (-2.7%) for the top spot in HackerNoon’s free tech company data reports. Two weeks ago they were 4th and last week they were third. Inc argues that the Macbook Pro has become “the biggest hit product Apple has had in a decade.” Meanwhile the EU has declared Apple Pay as anti-competitive “by limiting access to a standard technology used for contactless payments with mobile devices in stores (‘Near-Field Communication (NFC)' or ‘tap and go'), Apple restricts competition in the mobile wallets market on iOS.” So that’ll get the people talking!
