Apple was started in a garage on this day in 1976. Here are the modest beginnings of 5 tech companies worth billions today. (GOOG, MSFT, AAPL, AMZN) – Silicon Alley
Google, Apple, HP, Microsoft, and Amazon all say that they started in garages.
Now, they are some of the most valuable companies in the world and are worth billions.
The idea of starting in a garage has taken on a mythic status, to the point where some founders intentionally want to be able to say that they did it, too.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.
Some of the most legendary companies in Silicon Valley famously started in garages. A few scrappy guys with a genius idea working out of a garage has become essential to the stories told about these companies, and even the stories the companies tell about themselves.
The Garage Beginning has become an essential, almost cliché, part of a tech company's story. Fast Company called the startup garage "more than just a part of Silicon Valley's folklore; it has transformed into an image, an exportable idea ... the architectural symbol that would attract the right venture capital...

German Court Throws Out Qualcomm’s Latest Patent Case Against Apple – Daring Fireball
A patent lawsuit filed by Qualcomm Inc against Apple Inc was
thrown out by a German court on Tuesday, in a reversal for the
U.S. chipmaker after it won a recent court ban on the sale of some
iPhones in the country.
The regional court in the city of Mannheim dismissed the Qualcomm
suit as groundless in an initial verbal decision, saying the
patent in question was not violated by the installation of its
chips in Apple’s smartphones.
“We are happy with the decision and thank the court for their time
and diligence,” Apple said in a statement. “We regret Qualcomm’s
use of the court to divert attention from their illegal behavior
that is the subject of multiple lawsuits and proceedings around
These court cases are so tedious to follow, but the effects are real. Until this ruling Apple was forced to removed the iPhone 7 and 8 from sale in Germany — very popular products in a very big market...

Amazon strikes deal with Apple to sell new iPhones and iPads – The Verge
Amazon has made a deal with Apple that will see the Cupertino tech company sell its products — including iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches — directly on Amazon, according to a report from CNET.
Amazon has sold Apple products before, but those have been from third-party sellers, which means that the prices are often variable (and wildly different from the “official” Apple prices) and that sourcing isn’t as reputable.

Snap launches new styles of Spectacles that look more like traditional sunglasses – The Verge
If the main hangup that’s kept you from purchasing Snap’s Spectacles has been their design, two new models that the company is introducing today might eliminate those hesitations. Snap has just announced the new Veronica and Nico styles of Spectacles 2. They contain all the same features and recording quality improvements as the model first introduced in April, but this time inside a more traditional look. It maybe won’t be quite so obvious that you’re wearing Spectacles anymore.
The new models of Spectacles are also different in a couple of other ways: they've got polarized lenses, and they come with a nondescript, black “semi-soft” case instead of the bright yellow hard case you get with the original...

Android P’s flagrant iPhone X imitation shows how little Google is innovating – PCWorld
Android P is still in super-duper developer-only beta mode, but you only need to look at an iPhone X to see what your Pixel phone will look like once the new models land later this summer.Okay, I kid, but there’s no denying that Google has taken at least some inspiration from Apple’s thousand-dollar flagship phone. First there’s the support for “cutout” displays, better known as The Notch. One of Android P’s premier features will be proper support for cameras that jut into the screen, so apps, videos, and status bars can display properly...

Supplier says Apple’s iPhone X production cut isn’t as big as recently reported – BGR
A report on Monday sent Apple’s stock down by 1.6% after revealing that Apple has purportedly cut iPhone X orders by 20 million for the current quarter, or half of the initial estimates. Apple, the same report said, would make 30 million non-iPhone X handsets during the period, including the iPhone 8, a number that hasn’t changed.
A day later, one of Apple’s iPhone X suppliers went on record to say the order cuts aren’t “that great.”
“Our understanding is that it is not that great,” Murata vice chairman Yoshitaka Fujita said when asked about the report Nikkei ran on Monday.
It’s surprising to see a supplier go on record about its dealings with Apple. But that’s all Fujita had to say on the matter, according to Reuters. The exec did not reveal any other details about Murata’s dealings with Apple for the iPhone X
Murata is one of the two makers of flexible printed circuit boards (FPCB) for the iPhone X, a...
