  • RIM's "Irrational Exuberance" Friday, 26 Sep 2008 | 9:53 AM ET

    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.

  • To say that the optimism surrounding Research in Motion going into the company's second quarter earnings, reported just moments ago, was thick, is an understatement.

  • RIM's Earnings To Come In Wireless "Surge" Thursday, 25 Sep 2008 | 9:32 AM ET

    The news is good for BlackBerry, even in the face of iPhone's success, which speaks to my point yesterday that the sector is having no trouble supporting multiple success stories.

  • Yahoo CEO Email Tells Of Sweeping Layoffs? Wednesday, 24 Sep 2008 | 3:31 PM ET
    Yahoo Headquarters

    There's little chance that telegrams bring good news; likewise can be said when your email inbox suddenly shows a note from the CEO with the words, "Time for another update."

  • RIM Readies Earnings Facing "Brutal Competition" Wednesday, 24 Sep 2008 | 12:27 PM ET

    Thursday will be a big day for Research in Motion as the company prepares to release its second fiscal 2009 quarterly earnings into a climate that's either really good, or really bad, for the wireless leader, depending upon who you believe on Wall Street.

  • 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.

  • Simulating a Stimulating Formula One Race Monday, 22 Sep 2008 | 10:53 PM ET

    Formula One fever is in the air as Singapore prepares to host the fist ever F1 night race this weekend. And for those unable to watch the race, the simulated experience may be quite the stimulating alternative.

  • iPhone Soars on Eve of gPhone's Release Monday, 22 Sep 2008 | 10:15 PM ET
    Apple iPhone

    Here we are, the night before Google, HTC and T-Mobile unveil the highly anticipated "Dream" smartphone--otherwise known as the gPhone--and Apple tries to ruin the party with headline-stealing news of its own.

  • Could Microsoft Merely Be The First Buyback Domino? Monday, 22 Sep 2008 | 9:34 AM ET
    Microsoft Sign

    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.

  • Dude, HP "Goes After" Dell Friday, 19 Sep 2008 | 1:45 PM ET
    HP

    HP is resurrecting the "Dude, You're Gettin' a Dell" campaign, which wasn't the brightest point in Dell's history, and now it's being used against it.

  • The "Back To School Sale" For Tech Stocks Friday, 19 Sep 2008 | 9:28 AM ET
    Teck Stocks

    With this morning's rally, this is quickly shaping up as the week that wasn't for so many battered and bruised technology companies, and whiplashed investors are learning some important lessons:

  • Oracle

    Turns out, reporting pretty good news on a day when the Dow scampers 400 points and the Nasdaq recovers 100 points, translates into fantastic timing for Oracle shareholders.

  • Microsoft-Seinfeld Ad Saga: Company "Clarifies" My Post Thursday, 18 Sep 2008 | 2:58 PM ET
    Jerry Seinfeld

    Seinfeld wasn't "fired," or "canned," or "cancelled," or "let go." The company said from the early going that the Seinfeld commercials were "teaser ads" meant to stir conversation and debate, and tee up this next round of ads.

  • Palm Earnings Preview: Trying To Keep The Momentum Thursday, 18 Sep 2008 | 12:21 PM ET
    Palm Earnings

    It's not often that a company like Palm enjoys "bellwether" status, but such is the unusual result of these crazy times on Wall Street where investors are breathlessly searching for any kind of sign post they can find.

  • Oracle Earnings Could Be Wall Street Victim Thursday, 18 Sep 2008 | 9:48 AM ET
    Oracle

    If so many things in life come down to timing, today is a day Oracle would probably rather avoid. The Dow's off more than 800 points in a couple of days this week; the Nasdaq plunged more than 100 points just yesterday.

  • Google's gPhone: Is There Really Room For One More Device? Wednesday, 17 Sep 2008 | 12:34 PM ET

    Google will hardly be a me-too vendor. I'm sure the new HTC "Dream" phone will be feature-rich. But how it looks and how it feels might eclipse what it does since there are so many other options out there for consumers right now.

  • Teck Stocks

    This has been a crazy week on the markets, and it's still only Tuesday morning out here in Silicon Valley. But look no further than the stalwarts in the PC business, like Apple, Hewlett-Packard and Dell to see a new kind of volatility index.

  • 'H' Might Stand for Hurd in the New HP Tuesday, 16 Sep 2008 | 1:06 AM ET
    HP

    There was a time not too long ago when Hewlett-Packard simply became "HP."  I'm not talking about the "HP" it's always been known as, but "HP" as the official new name of the company, supplanting Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, and joining the ranks of KFC as a company running the risk of forgetting history for the sake of convenience and short-hand.

  • EA Plays the Microsoft Game Sunday, 14 Sep 2008 | 7:24 PM ET

    If Electronic Art's unsolicited bid for Take-Two Interactive sounds a lot like Microsoft's unsolicited play for Yahoo — complete with both EA and Microsoft ultimately walking away — think again.
