  • 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.

  • RIM's Balsillie Still Interested In NHL Friday, 12 Sep 2008 | 3:17 PM ET

    The background is this: Balsillie has been Jonesing for an NHL team for the past several years. He looked close to getting a deal done for the financially strapped Pittsburgh Penguins. When that didn't work out, he started to focus on the Nashville Predators.

  • "Big Bad Apple" Fake Steve: Your Emails Friday, 12 Sep 2008 | 1:32 PM ET

    I had a feeling my early morning post about Dan Lyons and his Apple monopoly mongering might engender some choice responses from some of you. But some of these posts might surprise you. Here's a taste:

  • Big Profits From Big Cap Stocks Friday, 12 Sep 2008 | 1:14 PM ET

    Christian Andreach, managing director at Manning and Napier Equity Fund, told CNBC it's a good time to take advantage of what big-cap stocks offer.

  • Fake Steve Jobs and His Real Bad Argument Friday, 12 Sep 2008 | 4:36 AM ET
    Apple Store 5th Ave NY

    Look, I don't want to play the role of Apple defender, because heaven only knows message boards and Apple shorts think I support this company too much already.

  • This is the guy who is running arguably the most effective, most innovative company in arguably one of the most exciting and dynamic sectors in tech. And he just doesn't tend to sit down for TV interviews.

  • Research In Motion: Time For Their Spotlight Wednesday, 10 Sep 2008 | 1:47 PM ET

    Apple owned the spotlight yesterday with its iPod event in San Francisco, but today and tomorrow it will all be about Research in Motion, with CEO Jim Balsillie preparing to keynote the big CTIA Wireless expo Thursday, which comes a week before the company issues its quarterly earnings.

  • Steve Jobs Talks New iPods, Health: My One On One Tuesday, 9 Sep 2008 | 4:37 PM ET
    Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduces the new iPod Nano in San Francisco, Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2008.

    Steve Jobs is healthy, was taken by surprise by all the speculation about his health swirling around him after his last public appearance in June, and says while he could "stand to gain 10 or 15 pounds," he's doing just fine.
