Today's news is seemingly all about competition:
- Apple's possibly announcing new products tomorrow morning, as the online store and some other services are shut down from 3 AM - 8:30 AM ET. Could it be new iPads or Macs? Or just maintenance?
- Apple's buddy SoftBank apparently yanked a $100 million investment from Essential, the new smartphone startup created by Android creator Andy Rubin
- Microsoft wants Mac users to switch to Surface so badly that it has created a migration tool to speed up the process
- Siri is going to get even more competition in the AI realm, this time from Samsung's Bixby
