  • Tech Titans Back California Bike Races Tuesday, 19 Feb 2008 | 2:49 PM ET
    Chris Carmichael

    I'm writing from the road this week, taking some time off to attend legendary coach Chris Carmichael's cycling training camp in Buellton, Calif. The camp takes place at the same time as the huge Amgen Tour of California pro cycling race, and both are boasting their fair share of some pretty spectacular technology. Carmichael made a name for himself training Lance Armstrong...

  • Apple Earnings: Predicting the China Factor Tuesday, 19 Feb 2008 | 1:56 PM ET

    Here we are still in February, and there's already a healthy amount of speculation about Apple's earnings. And when they are released in April, they could hold some surprising news -- thanks in part to China's giant market.

  • Sony Playstation 3

  • HD DVD's "Unofficial" Official Death--Blu-ray Lives Friday, 15 Feb 2008 | 11:16 AM ET

    It's official, or as official as this is going to get: HD DVD is dead; long live Blu-ray! All along, industry pundits have compared the next-generation DVD format war to the Beta vs. VHS conflict when VCRs first burst on the scene. I didn't realize just how true that comparison truly was.

  • Microsoft's hostile play for Yahoo certainly isn't lacking from strong opinions about the deal from experts on both sides of the argument. But the more interesting opinions are coming from the companies themselves.

  • George Lucas And The Next Installment Of "Star Wars" Wednesday, 13 Feb 2008 | 2:42 PM ET

    Blackberry 8800

  • Apple: On The Road (Back) To Respect? Tuesday, 12 Feb 2008 | 11:10 AM ET

    Apple Inc. as a "value play?" Seems counter-intuitive to think of a company trading at better than 20 times next year's earnings as a "value," but maybe--just maybe--the Street is coming around to the idea that the growth and potential of this company seem horribly undervalued.

  • 'CrackBerry' Crisis: Outage Hits The Americas Monday, 11 Feb 2008 | 7:01 PM ET

    It is a "CrackBerry" addict's worst nightmare: a catastrophic outage affecting the company's entire network in the Americas.

    Yahoo will make public a letter from its board of directors Monday morning before the US stock market opens rejecting Microsoft's $31 hostile bid for the company as "massively undervalued," sources tell me.

  • Apple Rumor Mills "Abuzz" But I'm Not Buying Them Thursday, 7 Feb 2008 | 12:58 PM ET
    Apple

    Apple investors have to be scratching their heads wondering when the great story of 2007 will return to 2008. Or if it will at all. The latest grenade lobbed into the Apple tent comes from Friedman Billings Ramsey, purporting to show that Apple has reduced production of its iPod, iPhone and Mac.

  • Cisco Stuns Street with Lousy Forecast Wednesday, 6 Feb 2008 | 6:26 PM ET

    The news from Cisco was a kind of Goldilocks earnings report...a small upside surprise on the topline to the tune of $30 million: $9.83 billion instead of the consensus of $9.8 billion the Street was looking for. Until the guidance. Ouch.

  • Carmen Wong Ulrich

    Question: I would like to get on a financial budget and need to know which financial budgeting software you recommend?

  • Cisco's Earnings: A Case Of High Anxiety For The Street Wednesday, 6 Feb 2008 | 12:39 PM ET

    Just a few hours to go now before Cisco reports and to say there's a nervous tension on Wall Street right now anticipating the news is a deep understatement. It's palpable. I've spent a chunk of the morning calling investors and culling reaction: "nervous" comes up a lot.
