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.

NEW YORK - Apple briefly surpassed Exxon Mobil yesterday as the nation's most valuable company. 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.

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.

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.

After receiving a positive evaluation from an NFL advisory committee, Ohio State cornerback and former Eastern High School star Eli Apple announced Monday on Twitter that he would give up his final two years of eligibility to enter the NFL draft. Apple, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound redshirt sophomore, started 14 games as a freshman on Ohio State's 2014 national championship team. He had 13 starts this season, when he was second on the Buckeyes with eight passes broken up while posting 33 tackles.

Rapid technological progress, accompanied by the increasing standardization of what once was sold as costly optional equipment, is upsetting the notion of traditional automotive luxury. I've written this before - much to the chagrin of many in the car industry, particularly executives who cling to the eroding but still profitable idea that "luxury" is reserved for those truly wealthy enough to afford it, or aspirant buyers willing to incur enormous debt to acquire it. I am hereby restating my argument and offering as proof Exhibit A - the 2016 Kia Optima SX Limited sedan.

On chilly fall nights, there is nothing quite as cozy as a mug of hot cider - except for a mug of hot cider spiked with a shot of Snap. When added at the last moment, this ginger- and molasses-infused liqueur from Philadelphia's Art in the Age, inspired by Pennsylvania Dutch ginger bread, has the effect of an instant mulling spice. I didn't expect to like this so much. I haven't had much luck with Art in the Age's line of boldly flavored organic liqueurs, which, such as Root, are so commandingly distinctive they do not always play nice as congenial mixers in cocktails, where they tend to overpower.

Before sixth grade, Eli Apple was nervous about playing football. He was small for his age, he said, and was afraid to get hit. But then he went out for the team, fell in love with the sport, and started dreaming about playing college football. Now, the 6-foot-1, 200-pounder from Voorhees starts at cornerback for top-ranked Ohio State. The redshirt sophomore started 14 of 15 games last season, logging 53 tackles. In the national championship game, he intercepted a pass from Marcus Mariota to solidify the Buckeyes' 42-20 win over Oregon.

On a golden October afternoon on the outskirts of Strawberry Mansion, a crowd gathered around a hand-cranked wooden press to squeeze out fresh apple cider. On the lawn, children painted pumpkins and ate freshly made treats. In the shadow of one of the city's historic treasures, Saturday's seventh annual Woodford Orchard Apple Harvest Festival in Fairmount Park brought to life centuries-old crafts - and showcased one of the city's most unusual learning environments. Among the fruits of age-old talents on display, bakers shared homemade apple muffins, apple sauce, and pies to be judged and then quickly consumed.

Crab-Apple Salad Season There's a reason Audrey Taichman hasn't been seen much lately during the dinner hour around 20th and Spruce, the corner where nearly two decades ago she helped launch the minimalist chic spirit of Philly's BYOB boom with her iconic Audrey Claire.

Within the last three years, she had a baby boy, adopted the young twins of her sister, Leslie, who tragically died of cancer, and then became stepmother to two more sets of older twins through marriage this year.
