    Let me focus on something that deserves a lot more attention: the upcoming Apple App Store, a new online Apple store that will post and sell third party software applications.

  • 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.

  • Bill Gates

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

  • 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'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."
