4. -- Apple (AAPL) released a new update late Thursday that the tech giant said would repair the problems caused by software it released Wednesday morning. It also repeated an earlier apology to owners of its newest iPhones who were affected by the buggy release.
Apple shares fell almost 4% on Thursday, a day after the company was forced to withdraw an update to its new iOS 8 mobile software because of glitches that primarily affected customers who had purchased its new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models.
The company also defended its manufacturing standards following reports that the extra-large shell on the iPhone 6 Plus model was vulnerable to bending. Apple said bending "is extremely rare" with normal use of an iPhone.

6. -- Nike (NKE) , the global footwear and athletic apparel company, reported fiscal first-quarter earnings of $1.09 a share, up from 86 cents a share a year earlier and above analysts' estimates of 88 cents.
Revenue rose to $7.98 billion from $6.97 billion a year earlier. Wall Street expected revenue of $7.83 billion.
Nike-brand revenue rose 15% and posted growth in all regions and categories except action sports and golf.
Gross margins improved by 170 basis points to 46.6% helped by a change in product mix.
Nike said orders scheduled for delivery in the current quarter are up 11% from a year earlier.
