  • Shades of Green Friday, 20 Apr 2007 | 2:52 PM ET

    I know I've blogged about green building before, but humor me if you will, because I'm not going to let Earth Day go by without reminding everyone of the enormous and growing potentials of going green at home. Now I'm no Al Gore, but one trip to the International Home Builders Show in Orlando a few months ago had me ready to rip out my century-old insulation and put a timer on every light switch.

  • Ticketmaster Files Suit Against EBay's StubHub Unit Friday, 20 Apr 2007 | 1:40 PM ET

    The lawsuit, filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, said StubHub induced artists' representatives or promoters to demand tickets from Ticketmaster's venue clients as part of a deal to bring an act or sports team to a location.

  • Greg Tuza looked around his ACC Conference Store in Greensboro on Friday morning and responded to a caller who asked what he had left of Virginia Tech items. "No polos. Nope. No logo pins. No face tattoos. No, no decals. We won't have hats for two weeks." Pretty much all that was left in his ransacked store was Virginia Tech golf towels and baby rattles. There were 394 Hokies t-shirts in his shop yesterday. All gone.

  • VT Media Frenzy, Nike Hits Imus & Redstone Donation Friday, 20 Apr 2007 | 11:58 AM ET

    This week the media was dominated by the Virginia Tech killings, and Web traffic reflected the public's obsession. Facebook, the social networking site that's refusing to sell -- even as its valuation nears $1 billion -- got a boost. Traffic to the Virginia Tech Facebook website increased 555% on Monday, April 16 over the previous day.

  • Google

  • Sykes: Contest Mentality vs. Real World Thursday, 19 Apr 2007 | 3:42 PM ET

    Wow--we've gotten posts from all three guest bloggers today as this one from Timothy Sykes wraps it up. You certainly have some food for thought. Here's Timothy: Many contestants have been asking why I advocate such a seemingly risky strategy by focusing on chart plays with upcoming earnings. The answer, like my strategy, is rather simple.

  • Google: Could It Be A Contest "Player" Thursday, 19 Apr 2007 | 2:31 PM ET

    Is Google a contest stock worth playing? Well, the company releases earnings after the bell today, so I thought I'd pass along a news video piece from CNBC's Jim Goldman on the Internet giant. Again, this is not a recommendation for the contest or your personal portfolio--just some information. The stock hasn't exactly made the most active list among players, but it has drawn some interest.

  • Google Earnings Preview Thursday, 19 Apr 2007 | 12:15 PM ET

    The big week in Internet earnings reaches a crescendo this afternoon when Google reports earnings. These numbers come at a fascinating time in the company's history.Google has become a kind of financial underdog, compared to other big names in the sector, including Yahoo, which is still licking its wounds, and eBay, which is enjoying its second beat-and-raise quarter in a row. A strange position to be in for a company trading at nearly $500 a share.

  • Margaret C. “Meg” Whitman, president and CEO of eBay, told CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” that the company plans to upgrade its core auction business over the next 12 months and has no immediate plans to make another acquisition.

  • Celebs: Moneymaker Still #1 But Tucker Moves Up Thursday, 19 Apr 2007 | 11:07 AM ET

    It was a volatile day for the celebs. Champion poker player Chris Moneymaker holds onto the first spot despite his $90K loss on Syntel but actor Jonathan Tucker takes over the #2 spot. Meanwhile, Willie Garson falls into 4th, allowing Stephen Collins to gain 3rd place. Johnny Bench falls from 6th to 8th. One of the stocks for Chris M., CBST, is also a favorite of Parker Robinson in our non-celeb trading. Both are "banking" on it paying off.

  • Spa Biz & Restaurant Biz Thursday, 19 Apr 2007 | 9:16 AM ET

    First, Americans started spending more on their pets than their kids. Now we just don't want to be around the children at all! A survey by ModernMom.com found that if moms were given an extra hour of free time every day (which would actually be the only hour of free time they'd have), 36% would use it sleeping, 19% would like to get a manicure or massage, and only 6% would spend that extra hour with the kids.

  • Contest Stocks: The Good, Bad And Ugly Thursday, 19 Apr 2007 | 7:49 AM ET

    Here's the latest on what you're doing with stocks for the contest--and what they're doing to you!! It's pretty much dominated by earnings news, both good (LLTC) and bad (YHOO, ESLR). The most active and widely held lists remain the same. And a stock we took a closer look at yesterday, Seagate, had an impact on another stock--and not for the best. Here's the breakdown...

  • BlackBerry Blackout! Wednesday, 18 Apr 2007 | 11:08 AM ET

    If you went to bed and woke up this morning thinking the world was quiet and that today was going to be a light day at the office, you may want to call in, instead of relying on your BlackBerry. Research in Motion confirms a massive, system wide blackout affecting all its 8 million subscribers that began around 8 p.m. ET Tuesday, and while service is being restored, it is still sporadic and may take much of the day to get back on line completely.

  • Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young

    If you believe everything you read, you would have thought that San Diego Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson was just lucky enough not to get the Madden cover endorsement. Electronic Arts officially announced last night that Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young would grace the cover of the next version of the jinxed popular video game. "Vince was the guy all along," EA's director of marketing Chris Erb told the San Diego Union-Tribune today.

  • CNBC's Schacknow: 18 Candles (Happy Anniversary!) Tuesday, 17 Apr 2007 | 4:57 PM ET
    Peter Schacknow

    It was 18 years ago today -- April 17, 1989 -- that CNBC went on the air for the very first time. For those of us who were here both then and now, we realize that the world is a very different place. The Dow closed that day at 2337.79 -- roughly 10,000 points below where it is now. Alan Greenspan was less than two years into his Fed chairmanship, and the position hadn’t yet become one of financial celebrity. ... We couldn’t "google" anything because there was no Google...
