  • Google, Zen Master of the Market Monday, 7 Jul 2008 | 10:26 AM ET

    In the early years of the 21st century, Google is the company prompting a rethinking of assumptions on what technological monopoly might mean, the New York Times reports.

  • The plot thickens, the noose tightens, and when it comes to Yahoo and Microsoft, the "Little Merger That Couldn't," shareholders this morning, trying to climb this hill, are probably saying "I think 'I-cahn, I think 'I-cahn.'"

  • Still No Deal For Yahoo--Period Wednesday, 2 Jul 2008 | 10:16 AM ET

    I'll say from the outset that I have great respect for the Wall Street Journal. But I, along with a number of folks following the Yahoo/Microsoft will-they-or-won't-they drama are wondering what the point is of today's splashy, front-page tome purporting to break new ground about a new deal to grab a chunk of the company.

  • Low Power Chips Mount Challenge to Intel Monday, 30 Jun 2008 | 9:17 AM ET

    From mainframes to minicomputers and then PCs, each new computing generation has displaced its predecessor by reaching a broader audience and costing far less. And each time, the dominant company in one generation loses control in the next.

  • Bill Gates

    Today's the day. Well sort of. Bill Gates will retire from Microsoft, kind of. He's leaving the day-to-day responsibilities to others. But not really.

  • Bill Gates Doesn't Think Yahoo Deal Is Likely Friday, 27 Jun 2008 | 7:53 AM ET

  • One Small Step for Intel; Giant Leap for Apple? Thursday, 26 Jun 2008 | 12:26 PM ET

    This might be more a leap of faith, but it's a leap worth considering for both Intel and Apple, especially after the blogs have been awash this week about speculation over Intel's resistance to upgrade 80,000 employee computers to Microsoft's Vista.

  • Oracle Traders Giveth, Taketh Away Wednesday, 25 Jun 2008 | 8:12 PM ET
    Oracle's headquarters in Redwood City, California.

    Easy come, easy go, I suppose, when it comes to Oracle.  The company barely had enough time to finish that first glass of champagne, celebrating a great fourth quarter when gloomy guidance cut the party short.

  • Oracle Tops Forecasts; License Growth to Weaken Wednesday, 25 Jun 2008 | 6:01 PM ET

    Oracle the world's third-largest software maker, reported a higher quarterly profit, beating Wall Street estimates, but it sees software license revenue growth weakening.

  • You look at Oracle, you see a company at nearly a 7-year-high, and you wonder whether the company was over-bought, and whether investors were getting a little ahead of themselves. Nope.

  • RIM Shares Plunge as Profit, Outlook Fall Short Wednesday, 25 Jun 2008 | 4:49 PM ET

    Research in Motion reported a profit and sales that both were below analysts' estimates, and the company's shares dropped about 8 percent in extended trading.

  • RIM Misses But Will Cooler Heads Prevail On Stock? Wednesday, 25 Jun 2008 | 4:34 PM ET

    After the build-up and the hype, and the enormous amount of optimism surrounding Research in Motion shares, the company can't beat the buzzer and stock gets popped.

  • Oracle's headquarters in Redwood City, California.

    This could be a big one. Oracle will give us an early read of how American business did in the second quarter. As the largest seller of business software, Oracle has a unique view of the economy.

  • Oracle Becomes Macro "Oracle" For Economy Wednesday, 25 Jun 2008 | 10:28 AM ET
    Oracle's headquarters in Redwood City, California.

    Oracle ended 2007 as the software stock pick of the year for a few key analysts on the Street for 2008, and today we'll get a good idea as to whether those optimistic outlooks are still justified. Just about everyone I've talked to expects Oracle to beat expectations, so it doesn't seem like a question of "if," but instead, "by how much."

  • RIM On Earnings Deck: Set to Soar? Tuesday, 24 Jun 2008 | 12:01 PM ET

    Research in Motion will release earnings on Wednesday, and there's a fair amount of optimism swirling around these shares, even in the face of ever increasing competition and headlines from Apple and the iPhone.

  • iPhone Therefore iCreate? (Your Thoughts) Monday, 23 Jun 2008 | 4:46 PM ET

    Seems that last post about Oxford University Prof. Jonathan Zittrain and his worry about Apple's iPhone -- as well as other technology derailing our creativity -- struck a bit of a nerve. Several of you have written in, deriding his claims, calling him a Luddite, and more importantly, calling into question the basis on which he forms his opinions.

  • Why iPhone Sparks -- Not Stifles -- Creativity Monday, 23 Jun 2008 | 4:12 PM ET

    What am I missing here? That was the polite version of what went through my mind after reading Oxford University's professor Jonathan Zittrain wax philosophic about how the increasing adoption of Apple's iPhone, Research in Motion's Blackberry, and Microsoft's Xbox threaten to derail our very creativity.

  • Google Android Sees Delays? Monday, 23 Jun 2008 | 10:57 AM ET
    Google Headquarters

    Close, but no cigar, at least not yet when it comes to Google's mobile operating system platform code-named Android, at least according to the folks at The Wall Street Journal.
