Apple Shares Drop On Samsung Product Releases


Apple's stock took a beating Wednesday after rival Samsung showed off a number of new products at a Berlin trade show.

Samsung's reveal of two new smartphones -- the Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy Note 4 -- along with virtual reality headset Gear VR come ahead of Apple's highly anticipated Sept. 9 media event in which it is expected to take the wraps off the iPhone 6 and make other product announcements.

The news also trails the widely reported leak of celebrity nude photos hacked from personal iCloud accounts over the weekend. 

Apple drew steep criticism over iCloud's security capabilities and said in a release Tuesday that 

"None of the cases we have investigated has resulted from any breach in any of Apple’s systems 
including iCloud or Find my iPhone."



With Galaxy Note 4 launch, Samsung aims to

 pre-empt Apple, claim innovation mantle






Samsung and Oculus partner to create Gear VR,

a virtual reality headset that uses the Note 4

Facebook's Oculus VR is creating the Rift. Sony's PlayStation is creating Project Morpheus. 

Google is... well, Cardboard exists. 

And now Samsung's getting in 
on the virtual reality action, 

announcing Gear VR at IFA 2014 

in Berlin, Germany. Gear VR is a 

virtual reality headset with a removable front cover where Samsung's newly announced Note 4 slips in, acting as the screen. 

Paired with adjustable lenses built into the headset 
and a comfy strap, Gear VR turns

Samsung's next Note into a virtual reality machine. 

And what's the first thing you'll see when you strap on 

Gear VR? Oculus VR's handiwork. 

The company behind the re-birth of virtual reality is partnering with Samsung on Gear VR: 

Samsung handles the hardware; 
Oculus offers up its software prowess.
