We begin today's email with a closer look at a report from The Nikkei indicating Apple cut iPhone 7 production by 10 percent. We go over my thoughts and observations about the topic. The email then shifts to news of Amazon partnering with a few low-end TV manufacturers to sell Amazon Fire televisions. With Apple in mind, we discuss the various implications from this development. We conclude with a look at Google's strategy for its flagship Android Wear 2.0 smartwatches in 2017. Google is passing on selling its own smartwatches in favor of third-party partnerships.
