    As the global financial crisis continues, the advertising environment for the near future is looking increasingly grim.

    There are downgrades, and there are downgrades, but I have never seen the kind of downgrade parade marching through Wall Street this morning related to Research in Motion and its stock.

  • Apple IS the Issue at RIM Thursday, 25 Sep 2008 | 7:54 PM ET

    In my earlier post about Research in Motion's bitter earnings miss, I speculated that before investors rush off to sell their Apple shares in sympathy, they may want to study RIM's reasons for its shortfall. And that appears to be good advice.

  • Google Phone

    The "Dream" name disappeared this morning, in favor of T-Mobile's "G1" moniker instead, a nod to the first handset powered by Google's mobile operating system dubbed Android. And now the market has to weigh whether this is merely another competitor available, or everything Blackberry and iPhone aren't.

    Minutes after Microsoft's news to launch another $40 billion stock buyback and raise its dividend by 18 percent, Hewlett-Packard and Nike both announced major new buybacks of their own. And all of this may serve as a clarion call to other cash rich tech companies to start sharing their wealth.

  • Having A Laugh Over Wall Street's Crazy Week Friday, 19 Sep 2008 | 3:32 PM ET
