The Week Ending Feb. 9
Topping this week's roundup of those having a rough week is Apple, which took a hit after its iOS source code for the iPhone leaked on the web.
Also making the list this week are Cisco, which needed to re-issue a fix for a recently disclosed software security vulnerability; Intel, which was bested by Samsung as the dominant company in the semiconductor market in 2017; Broadcom after its revised $121 billion buyout bid for Qualcomm was unanimously rejected by Qualcomm's board; and Google, which was sued this week by Edible Arrangements for more than $200 million because it was allegedly unfairly prioritizing competitors' goods in its search results.
