Do you expect today's Apple earnings to be a hit, miss, or meet? Vote for the results in the left column below or go straight to the results here.

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.

MacUpdate offers 91% off its SUMMER BUNDLE for just $49.99. 1 super price, 10 great apps: Toast 15 Titanium, Waltr, Disk Drill Pro, Myriad 4, Next Flipbook Maker, Corel AfterShot, iStat Menus, MoneyWiz , DaisyDisk, and Folx 5 Pro.
