Apple News Items You Should Check out: Aug. 5

Since I can’t cover everything, I like to offer a daily round-up of must-read articles from some other great websites. To wit:

° From MacRumors: Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers now have a new tool in their arsenal to determine if a customer’s iPhone is unexpectedly restarting.

° From AppleInsider: Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo backs up rumors that Apple is diversifying its suppliers in China.

° From Nikkei Asia: Smartphone shipments in China are on track to fall to their lowest point in a decade this year as market saturation, longer waits between upgrades, and increasingly budget-conscious consumers combine for what could prove a prolonged downturn.

° From Reuters: Goldman Sachs Group Inc’s (GS.N) credit card business is being investigated by a top U.S. consumer watchdog, the bank disclosed in a regulatory filing on Thursday.
