Apple Roundup: Ghostbusters, iPad, Cadillac (Update 1)
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- As Apple's(AAPL) share price performance has spooked some longs, former CEO Steve Jobs may be the one to call.
New footage has been found of Jobs and other Apple employees parodying Ghostbusters in an internal video named "The Blue Busters," which was a shot at Apple's major rival IBM(IBM) . When there's something strange in the neighborhood, calling Steve Jobs for advice isn't a bad option.
As cars become more like computers every day, General Motors's(GM) Cadillac will give owners of the 2013 CTS model a new iPad that goes over the car's features. The news came at this week's CTIA telecom conference.The iPad will have certain Cadillac features preloaded, enabling it to talk about the car's entertainment system, the tablet, however, is not actually integrated into the dashboard, à la Mercedes Benz and Siri. Though no word on whether the iPad will help drivers learn how to drive.
Apple has reportedly offered Proview, the firm which owns the iPad name in China, $16 million to settle a dispute about the tablet's trademark. Apple has already received clearance to sell the iPad in China, but presumably has not done so until this lawsuit is settled.
