Once again, Nintendo will be forgoing a press conference this year in favor of an online streaming Digital Event.

We’re now just three days away from one of just a few big events Apple holds each year, and this year’s WorldWide Developer Conference is shaping up to be hugely important for Apple. Despite the fact that Apple hasn’t released a single new device so far in 2014, the company’s stock is soaring to 12-month highs. Why?
