On Monday, a research report published by JP Morgan forecasted that sales of Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) upcoming model of iPhone might rise almost one quarter and one half a percentage point to 4Q yearly US gross domestic product growth this year.

As per report, the company’s chief US economist Michael Feroli, forecasted domestic sales of the purported iPhone 5 would be almost 8 million units in quarter four, not counting buying of deferred phones like the iPhone 4S.

Feroli studies the calculations that came at the moderately huge GDP contribution by calculating the difference between an allocated retail price of $600 per handset, same as previous releases, and an enhanced cost component of $200 per phone, a $400 per iPhone trade margin can be included in the GDP.

It’s Florida Company, Not FBI

A Florida firm reported on Monday that its files not an FBI agent’s laptop were hacked by a rebel group that revealed Apple (AAPL) product identification data it asserted to have acquired from a violation of the nation’s elite law enforcement agency.

We want to make an apology, declare what happened and set the record at once, Paul DeHart stated CEO of software firm BlueToad Inc, informed Reuters.

FBI spokesman Paul Bresson assured to Reuters that it definitely does seem that BlueToad was where the information was really compromised.

BlueToad operates over 5,000 worldwide publications counting consumer magazines and business reports, and makes apps for its clients. DeHart stated that the firm experiences almost 1,000 ineffective hacking attempts each day.

Shares of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) moved down -2.60% to end at 662.74 during Tuesday’s trading session.
