NEW YORK - Apple spoiled the stock market's party on Friday. Stocks shot higher in the early morning, after the government reported that the United States added jobs in November. But Apple Inc., which has been flailing in recent weeks as investors wonder how long its momentum can continue, dragged down certain indexes. The Dow Jones industrial average, which doesn't include Apple, rose 81.09, or 0.6 percent, to close at 13,155.13. The Standard & Poor's 500 and Nasdaq, which do, were less impressive.

The iPhone and iPad maker had the lead for much of the afternoon before its stock closed just behind Exxon's. The two companies are so close that Apple is likely to keep the top spot soon. Apple Inc.'s stock gained 5.9 percent to $374.01 yesterday, bringing its market capitalization to about $347 billion. Exxon Mobil Corp.'s stock, meanwhile, closed up 2.1 percent at $71.64.

Q. I baked blueberry muffins with Jiffy Muffin Mix and they were good, but on the box it says "imitation blueberries. " What in the world are imitation blueberries? Mary Solek Tuckerton, N.J. A. Ruth Stone of the Chelsea Milling Company's customer relations department tells us that the blueberries in the mix are actually little bits of apples which are flavored and colored to look and taste like blueberries. Why does Jiffy do this? Two reasons are given. "An apple," says Stone, "is a very nutritious and healthful food, and we chose that from which to make our blueberries for that reason.

BEIJING - Apple issued an apology to Chinese consumers Monday after government media attacked its repair policies for two weeks in a campaign that reeked of economic nationalism. A statement Apple posted in Chinese on its website Monday said the complaints had prompted "deep reflection" and convinced the company of the need to revamp its repair policies, boost communication with Chinese consumers and strengthen oversight of authorized resellers. The ruling party's flagship newspaper, People's Daily , had accused Apple of arrogance, greed and exploiting the Chinese consumer.

Judgment Day came early for Philly Jesus, and the results were mixed: He was found guilty on Wednesday in Philadelphia Municipal Court of defiant trespass, but not guilty of disorderly conduct. The charges against Michael Grant, 29, a recovering heroin addict who walks the streets of Philadelphia dressed as Jesus , stemmed from his refusal to leave the Apple store at 1607 Walnut St. in Center City in May. Grant owns an iPhone and jokes that he's on the "family plan" with God and the Holy Ghost.

The Fair Labor team began the inspections Monday at Foxconn City in Shenzhen, China, Apple said. The complex employs and houses hundreds of thousands of workers.

Many of the hackers' claims were posted this week in a long, online missive from the group calling itself Anonymous.

" Apple said it did not provide any user information to the FBI or other organizations.

It is one of the highest points in the New Jersey Pinelands. And the view from the 60-foot-tall Apple Pie Hill fire tower is so sweeping that at certain times on a clear day, you can see the sun refracted from the glistening Liberty Place tower in Philadelphia, some 30 miles to the west and the Borgata Casino about 50 miles to the southeast. With so little light pollution from electrical sources in the remote Burlington County spot, the site is said to have an almost magical vibe at night, with the stars above and a carpet of sparkling points of light for miles and miles below.

What's up with Apple's fall product line introduced Wednesday? At $649 and up, the iPhone 7 boasts a sleeker profile, faster processors, two to three more hours of battery run time a day, water dunking resistance, and a far more sophisticated camera system - with two cameras on the business side of the larger, 5.5-inch "Plus" sized iPhone edition. The twin-lens design will enable instant switching between telephoto and wide-angle views and special background image blurring effects previously seen in other makers' smartphones.

WHAT IT IS - Move over apple: Scrapple is now the best-selling pie flavor at Wards Pastry Shop in Ocean City. While your dream of a perfect pie flavor may not be that whitish congealed block of something-or-other made famous by the Pennsylvania Dutch, apparently this bakery - around for 88 years and considered a Jersey Shore staple - knows a thing or two about taking such an oddity and making it, well, palatable. "I think some people hear about scrapple pie and come in and buy it for the goof . . . but they come back because they try it and it's really good," said Wards' owner and chief baker Walter Hohman, 51, who started working in the bakery when he was 12. Scrapple is traditionally a combination of pork offal - scraps and trimmings like the heart, head, liver, and bones that wouldn't be used for anything else - that is boiled down into a broth and then combined with cornmeal, flour, and spices to form a mush.

On any other Sunday afternoon, Ecco Conte would have been inside watching television. But she walked miles around Philadelphia over the weekend - all for the sake of catching Pokémon. "I've done more walking in the past couple days than I have probably in the past six months," Conte said. And she wasn't alone. So many people have downloaded Pokémon Go - a new app that has users physically visit different geocached locations to "catch" animated creatures in a virtual world - that it was the No. 1 free app in Apple's App Store just days after its release last week.

Serving up more features in smaller packages was the major theme at Apple's media event Monday, as the company ushered in a downsized four-inch iPhone SE and a refreshed 9.7 inch iPad Air called the iPad Pro - with both products borrowing tricks from their bigger sisters. Unlike Samsung, which sells a ton of big-screen "phablet" phones, Apple has seen its 6 series iPhone sales be far stronger in the smaller-screened, 4.7-inch 6S model than in the 5.5-inch 6S Plus. Consumer Intelligence Research Partners suggests the smaller iPhone 6S made up 48 percent of all U.S. iPhone sales during Apple's fiscal first quarter this year, while the iPhone 6S Plus accounted for 19 percent.
