SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Apple's latest financial report shows iPhone sales are still surging, driven partly by growth in China. But it also contains hints that Apple's much-vaunted smartwatch may not be selling as fast as Wall Street expected.
A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday vacated five out of 18 criminal convictions against former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, who is serving a 14-year sentence for attempted extortion from campaign contributors, wire fraud and other crimes. The judges vacated his sentence and ordered a retrial on the five counts, but said Blagojevich, 58, was not entitled to release from prison pending retrial because most convictions were upheld and the advisory sentencing range is above 14 years. An attorney for Blagojevich said he believed his client should pursue further appeals and Blagojevich's wife, Patti Blagojevich, told a news conference her husband is an innocent man who never intended to break the law.
