Apple breaks record, BlackBerry plans to go private

Apple announced it sold 9 million new iPhones over the weekend. That number includes both the iPhone 5S, the higher-end phone with a fingerprint scanner and the cheaper 5C, which comes in several colors.

And then there's Blackberry. Today it announced that it was going private. It's being acquired for 4-point-7 billion dollars.

Last week, the company announced it sold only 3.7 million devices over an entire quarter.
