Apple's shares rallied nearly 6 percent Monday. Despite the recent 28-nanomenter chip shortage, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has maintained his iPhone shipment target. He gave the company a 80 percent chance of reaching his target of nearly 50 million iPhone units in the December quarter, when the iPhone 5 is expected to launch. "We believe the iPhone 5 will represent the biggest consumer-electronics product launch of 2012 as well as the biggest device-upgrade cycle in smartphone history," Munster wrote.
Boeing recently announced that it has completed the acquisition of Inmedius, a provider of software applications and services for managing and sharing information and learning content. Terms of the transaction, announced on April 26, were not disclosed. Inmedius will be integrated into Continental DataGraphics (CDG), a subsidiary of Boeing Commercial Aviation Services.
