Jan 22- British mobile banking software maker Monitise Plc has put itself up for sale, blaming changes in its business model for its third revenue warning in a year. Monitise, which switched to a subscription model from one based on licences last year, said it had hired Moelis& Co to conduct an "all encompassing" strategic review that included "corporate...» Read More
This afternoon Oracle will give us a first look at how software companies did in the first months of 2008. Did the U.S. economic slowdown take a bite out of Oracle's business? Read on to see what other questions investors will be asking.
Demand for design tools like Photoshop, Illustrator and Dreamweaver and for its Acrobat publishing tool pushed Adobe Systems' profit up 52 percent in the first quarter, but the software maker still forecast just 13 percent revenue growth for the year.
After the bell Tuesday, Adobe announced better than expected revenues and earnings. First quarter revenue came in at $890 million, up 37 percent from the year ago quarter. During the quarter the company spent $1.25 billion repurchasing 33.3 million shares of its outstanding stock, putting its GAAP diluted earnings at 38 cents per share, beating the target range...
U.S. software maker Adobe Systems on Tuesday posted a higher quarterly profit and gave a forecast that topped Wall Street expectations, sending shares up more than 7 percent in after-hours trade.
When Apple opened its iPhone to software developers last week, as well as enterprise clients, I surmised then that the strategy could lead to the same kind of "halo effect" that iPod enjoyed.
Senior executives from Microsoft and Yahoo met Monday to discuss Microsoft's takeover bid for the company, according to two people familiar with the matter.
If Microsoft's play for a tiny chip of Facebook helped value the company at a staggering $15 billion, then AOL's play for social networking site Bebo makes perfect sense, even at $850 million.
It's unusual for Apple to issue press releases, but this was news the company probably couldn't wait to share: We knew that the software developer kit, the so-called SDK for iPhone, was likely going to be a big deal for the Apple community. And now we have some facts.
The technology industry thrives on its ability to sell new products to consumers at an ever-increasing pace. But millions of users of nearly every type of Internet service and technology, from Netscape and AOL dial-up to old e-mail systems, still cling to older technologies.
For Google, the European Union's ongoing scrutiny of its plans to buy DoubleClick has been an overhang on the stock since the deal was first announced. Today came the long-awaited EU blessing Google has been waiting for.
I'm skeptical. Let me just say that right out of the gate. I'm skeptical that Apple Inc. and Apple Corps have signed a deal to put the Beatles' 255 song catalogue on the iTunes web site. Don't get me wrong, I see the economies here and I know that everyone involved sees $$$ in their eyes
This is quite possibly the last momentum stock around. Here's why the CEO thinks the growth will continue.
A day after the iPhone news from Apple, we've all had a chance to digest the ramifications of the announcements and as you might expect, there's a lot of opinions floating through Wall Street about just how significant, and important the news is.
Apple will unveil a comprehensive set of tools for developers to create their own applications for the company's hot-selling iPhone, and then sell them on the iTunes web site.
This is the post of the live blog I did today on the Apple iPhone event at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California. Please enjoy reading it the first time or again if you were with me earlier today. It reads from my last posting at the top to the very first at the bottom of the page.
When in doubt, delay! That appears to be the strategy at Yahoo, where the company's board has authorized a deadline extension for outsiders to nominate their own slate of directors, which would have been next week. The new deadline will now be 10 days after the company announces the date of its annual shareholder meeting. This clock indeed is ticking...
Yahoo has stepped up merger talks with AOL in an effort to avoid being taken over by Microsoft.
Investors lined up 2 hours before the Apple shareholder meeting began here in Cupertino, California. It's a little unusual for them to be here so early, and I thought it might be related to the company's 40 percent plunge since the beginning of the year.
Today's disaster du jour comes from Intel, the world's largest chipmaker, reducing gross margin expectations for the first quarter by a couple of percentage points. The company now expects gross margins of about 54 percent, compared to its original forecast of 56 percent.
When it comes to Apple and the company's sagging stock price--and increasingly frustrated shareholders--it seems to me a solution is getting clearer by the day. Stock buyback.
