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.

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.

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.

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.

"I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me," says Apple head honcho Tim Cook in a new essay in Bloomberg Businessweek. Well, he may be proud, but he never acknowledged it publicly before. He said that announcing it "wasn't an easy choice. " May we someday have a world in which it's easy. As it is, some behind-the-timesers, I guess, have their knickers in a bunch. Cook is now one of the highest-ranking businesspeople of self-acknowledged same-sex orientation.

On a ridge above the Delaware River in northern Bucks County, an orchard's first Winesaps of the season were picked this week. The hillside apple orchard has already produced its Macouns and Empires and Jonathans, more than 20 kinds so far this year. Only two more tastes of autumn remain, still ripening, up there above the river. And by the middle of November, even the still-untouched trees, the ones heavy with Romes and Granny Smiths, will have been stripped. "We're very late this year . . . maybe 15 days later than last year," said William Erkes, walking along that ridge line one afternoon this week.

When Fiona Apple finished singing the aptly titled "Sullen Girl" Wednesday at the Theatre of Living Arts, she turned her attention, somewhat reluctantly, to the capacity crowd. "OhmyGod, "Ohmigod, I don't know what to say," she gushed, seeming genuinely flustered. "I don't know if you know, but tonight is the last night of this tour. It's my first tour as a headliner, and I just want to be straight with you, I'm kind of freaking out. I've really not been handling it that well. I used to freak out before, but I was by myself.

The biggest iPhones ever, with new and improved sensors. A new mobile-payment system with Apple's pedigree and a promise to protect your financial data.

It's hard to avoid superlatives when talking about a company that lays claim to creating the most revolutionary consumer product in a generation - the smartphone - and that boasts a world-leading market value of nearly $600 billion.

It may seem a little like bringing coals to Newcastle, but the small show of Cézanne still-life paintings soon to open at the Barnes Foundation is more like bringing a shiny apple to school. In fact, it's a lot like bringing many apples to school - along with a skull or two. "The World Is an Apple: The Still Lifes of Paul Cézanne" opens in the Barnes' special exhibition space on June 22 and runs through Sept. 22 before traveling to the Art Gallery of Hamilton in Ontario, where it will be a centerpiece of the gallery's 2014 centennial exhibition season.

NEW YORK - Three years ago, Madison Square Garden embarked on a three-phase, $1 billion renovation to the "World's Most Famous Arena. " Concourses were widened. Ice-level suites were added. A sparkling new scoreboard was hung. Every seat was ripped out of the building. Apparently, also cleaned out was any ability for the Flyers to string together three periods somewhat resembling professional hockey there. Amid the buzz and the bright lights of Broadway, the Flyers' biggest stars from Broad Street simply forgot to show up in a befuddling, 3-1 loss last night that could serve as an ugly harbinger of a first-round Eastern Conference playoff series.
