The growing maturity of the smartphone and tablet markets were readily apparent in Apple's financial results for the second quarter of its fiscal 2014, which runs from the beginning of January to the end of March. Even though it sold a few more iPhones than it did in the second quarter of 2013, it sold slightly fewer iPads, and both revenues and profit margins were up a little from last year (think single-digit percentage growth).
There's no question that Apple is still making money hand over fist: it reported profits of $10.2 billion on revenue of $45.6 billion, giving it a profit margin of 39.3 percent and beating its own upper guidance of $44 billion from last quarter—those margins also beat the company's upper guidance of 38 percent.

The FCC is calling the spectrum-sharing plan the “Citizens Broadband Radio Service.”

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler confirmed today that proposed rules to replace the net neutrality regulations struck down by a court decision are on track for an FCC vote on May 15.
Wheeler didn't detail exactly what those rules would be, but The Wall Street Journal says it has a source who knows."The Federal Communications Commission plans to propose new open Internet rules on Thursday that would allow content companies to pay Internet service providers for special access to consumers, according to a person familiar with the proposal," the Journal reported.
This would be the opposite of the FCC's original intent with the 2010 Open Internet Order passed under Wheeler's predecessor, Julius Genachowski.
