...might be in the news lately, but don't forget about Apple !
Industry analysts at American Technology Research have raised their Apple stock purchasing recommendations from "hold" to "buy" on their belief that NVIDIA has secured its place in the much anticipated device. They believe that NVIDIA's entrance into the iPod can be viewed as a strong sign that Apple intends to support 3D on the video iPod, and they believe that this will translate into significant sales. News of the recommendation change first appeared on the Dow Jones Newswire.
On the programming front, Apple appears to be investing in gaming development. The company has reportedly been in the market for gaming developers, and rumors back in May even indicated that the position was somehow related to the iTunes Music Store. Could Apple be selling Zuma for the iPod in a few short months? It's all starting to add up, that's for sure.
