Today's Video Update: Apple's Big Day And Waze To Go Google

Hello traders everywhere! Adam Hewison here, President of and Co-creator of MarketClub, with your mid-day market update for Monday, the 10th of June.

Apple's Big Day
Today, Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) kicks off its developers conference in San Francisco. This is the day that the Apple-faithful have been patiently waiting for. It is widely speculated that Apple will announce IOS 7, a new operating system, and perhaps some other upgrades. No new disruptive technologies are expected to be announced at this conference, but with Apple you never know. One of the presenters today is Sir Jonathan Paul "Jony" Ive, who is the genius designer for many of Apple's most recent products. In my opinion, Jony was the main creative force behind Steve Jobs. The new operating system is rumored to be cleaner, simpler and “flatter”, moving away from the skeuomorphic design. Apple is also expected to announce a new music service that's going to go head-to-head with the likes of Pandora, Spotify, and other online streaming music platforms. Let's put everything in perspective, Apple has 500 million users, Pandora has less than 70 million. Mathematically, this gives Apple a huge advantage in terms of creating a really successful, new income-producing music service. Initially iRadio, as the name is rumored to be, will be supported by ads, and eventually it will end up becoming a recurring revenue product. I will be covering Apple in today's daily update.

Google Waze
It looks like Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) plunked down over $1 billion to buy Waze, a social mapping system. If you are not familiar with Waze, it is a very cool app that uses social networking to get the latest traffic and map updates. Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and FaceBook (NASDAQ:FB) both looked at Waze earlier this year and decided to take a pass. In the case of FaceBook, they wanted to have Waze engineers move from Israel to the States and that was the deal breaker. Apple's reasons remain a mystery. If you aren't using this app and you have an iPhone or iPad, I highly recommend the Waze app. The app really adds a lot more to your driving experience, reporting on police sightings, traffic accidents and much more. I will be looking at Google today to see how this announcement is affecting its stock.
