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.

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.

NEW YORK - Apple said Monday that an independent group, the Fair Labor Association, had started inspecting working conditions in the Chinese factories where its iPads and iPhones are assembled. Amid growing criticism over labor and environmental practices - especially in China - Apple last month for the first time disclosed a list of suppliers for its gadgets. 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.

Apple Inc. and the FBI denied claims by hackers who said they stole information on 12 million Apple Inc. user accounts from an FBI computer. Many of the hackers' claims were posted this week in a long, online missive from the group calling itself Anonymous. The FBI said in a statement Tuesday that there was "no evidence indicating that an FBI laptop was compromised or that the FBI either sought or obtained this data. " Apple said it did not provide any user information to the FBI or other organizations.

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.

"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.

Taylor Swift smashes Apple She's Taylor Swift : Hear her roar! The 25-year-old Reading native has single-handedly forced Apple to change its marketing plans for its forthcoming Apple Music streaming service. The company had announced that for the first month, it would offer its subscription service free, conceding this meant the corporate giant would not pay artists any royalties during that period. Swift took to social media to protest. "It is unfair to ask anyone to work for nothing," she wrote on her Tumblr, vowing to keep her new record, 1989 , off Apple Music.

Summer is always ripe for cherry pie. But this year, I'm excited about the one that's pouring on draft: Cherry Pie, the cider. This wickedly good blush of sweet-tart dry cider comes from Stone & Key Cellars in Montgomeryville, the eight-month-old custom crush winery from the owners of Keystone Homebrew Supply that's also become one of the state's innovative new cideries. S&K's initial cider series ferments a blend of up to 17 apple varieties from Solebury Orchards to complete dryness followed by a variety of vivid finishes, including a funky wild yeast for "Untamed," or the oaky vanilla of brandy barrels.

What Apple doesn't invent, it polishes. That's the strategy with the new Apple Music and Apple News, plus the upgraded Apple Pay, WatchOS, and iOS9 operating system.

Apple Music - given the "one more thing" closing slot on the program, reserved for the most important news - is the company's second swing at a subscription service. Such services are one of the only growth areas in the prerecorded music business.

In those cash-strapped days when you first moved into your own place and used plastic milk crates as furniture, you might not have considered yourself part of the sustainability movement. But you were, by repurposing that crate. A few years ago, Morgan Berman decided she, too, wanted to live a greener existence. "I kept thinking, 'I want to make these life choices,' but I didn't know how," the 29-year-old Philadelphia resident recalled. So she developed an app, MilkCrate, to help her and other like-minded consumers connect with local sustainable businesses and other resources.
