On the northern coast of Spain in Basque country and Asturias, a taste for hard cider instead of wine reaches its height in April, when cider houses called sagardotegi celebrate with calls for "Txotx!" (say: "choach!") and casks are tapped, sending newly fermented fall sidra streaming from holes in the barrel straight into revelers' glasses. Tinto is having its own Txotx party Thursday, and it's an ideal moment to taste how fascinatingly different these ciders are - low in carbonation and vivid with earthy apple essence.

Samsung Electronics Co. fired the first of three smartphone salvos this year aimed at hurting Apple Inc. in its home market, releasing a bigger and faster Galaxy S4 that reviewers said may only glance its target. The device announced Thursday night is lighter than predecessor S3 and has software to track movement of the eyes and waves of the hands. The Galaxy S4 will be able to take photos in two directions, monitor sleeping habits, and translate commands into different languages as the South Korean company tries to lure customers in a slowing global smartphone market.

WHAT MAKES Apple so hot - and the envy of all other electronics brands? Its ecosystem, largely. Apple-branded products don't just work well together; the goodies play even nicer when enhanced with accessories made by third-party vendors. Nowhere is this synergy demonstrated better than with the new Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch Keyboard ($99.99) and matching Rechargeable Trackpad for Mac ($79.99), which Gizmo Guy has deployed to compose this piece. Apple users like to line up several of the maker's devices on a desk.

Apple CEO Tim Cook is calling a shareholder lawsuit against the company a "silly sideshow," even as he said he was open to looking at the shareholders' proposals for sharing more cash with investors. Investor David Einhorn sued Apple Inc. last week, saying a proposal slated for a vote at the company's annual meeting in two weeks would make it more difficult to enact his plan to reward shareholders by distributing a new class of shares. Cook said Apple's proposal would put more power in the hands of shareholders, making it difficult to understand why a shareholder would fight it. Calling the fight a waste of time, Cook said Apple would not waste money by mailing shareholders to try to persuade them to vote for the proposal.

There are many things to call Apple Inc. Maker of the iPhone, iPad, and other must-have products. The world's most innovative company, and the world's most valuable company (at times). Allow me to add to the list: "Major buyer of Pennsylvania tax credits. " The Cupertino, Calif.-based technology Goliath may have more cash than investor David Einhorn believes is prudent, but Apple isn't foolish when comes to taxes. Apple apparently is trying to reduce its tax liability in Pennsylvania by buying up tax credits from other companies here.

NEW YORK - A sharp drop in Apple's stock pulled the Nasdaq down with it after the tech giant warned of weaker sales. Other stock-market indexes eked out slight gains. Apple sank $63.50 to $430.50. With iPhone sales hitting a plateau and no new products to introduce, Apple said sales would likely increase just 7 percent in the current quarter. That's a letdown for a company that has regularly posted growth rates above 50 percent. The Standard & Poor's 500 index edged up 0.01 of a point to 1,494.82.

NEW YORK - Apple's profit surge halted in the latest quarter, as a flood of new products, such as the iPhone 5, meant high start-up costs for new production lines. Apple posted net income for the October to December quarter that was flat with the year before. It was the first time in years that Apple didn't post a double-digit earnings increase. The earnings report also made clear that Apple was no longer able to sustain the breakneck sales increases of the last three years, even with a fresh iPhone on store shelves.
