Tuesday Highlights: Tim Cook already under fire before he announces Apple's earnings this afternoon with one analyst believing Apple has peaked under Cook and needs new management, possibly misjudging his business; Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times have earnings previews; Dan Frommer says "investors have 'extremely low' expectations" as Apple's confidence in next iPhone launch is about to be revealed; Apple may announce sale of one billion iPhones in today's earnings call; Google updates Google Maps for iOS with a cleaner look; TechCrunch was hacked by OurMine today, possible publicity stunt; and if Apple names next iPhone the 6SE, they're making a "terrible marketing decision" argues Ashraf Eassa.
