  • Apple Caves: iPhone Software Now Open For Biz Wednesday, 17 Oct 2007 | 12:49 PM ET

    Steve Jobs has a message for third party software developers who have largely been shut out of the iPhone extravaganza: Call Us Up! In a sharp reversal to an earlier policy, and in an open letter from Jobs posted on Apple's web site, the company is now inviting software developers to create applications for the iPhone that would live on the iPhone's memory and not on the web.

  • EBay: Will It Keep Its Rally Going? Wednesday, 17 Oct 2007 | 10:58 AM ET

    Check a chart of eBay these last three months and you'll see a company in rally mode; a rally that is continuing in a big way today and today's momentum comes from an ironic source. Earlier this quarter, eBay wrote down its Skype investment by about 50%...

  • Yahoo and Intel Surprise; IBM Keeps on Comin'! Wednesday, 17 Oct 2007 | 9:23 AM ET
    Yahoo

    The news from tech seems pretty good at first blush, and it's coming from some surprising places. Most notably, the news from Yahoo and the shares are reacting nicely. More than nicely. Yahoo shares scampered 10% as this news trickled out, and I have to say, I'm surprised.

  • IBM Profit Edges Forecasts; Services Revenue Rises Tuesday, 16 Oct 2007 | 5:30 PM ET

    IBM posted a 6 percent rise in quarterly profit on strength in its services business, but profit margins narrowed.

  • Apple's Real iOpening News: Leopard Finally Unleashed! Tuesday, 16 Oct 2007 | 1:53 PM ET

  • Microsoft Gears for Unified Communications Tuesday, 16 Oct 2007 | 1:51 PM ET

  • Yahoo Earnings: What You Should Expect Monday, 15 Oct 2007 | 4:02 PM ET
    Yahoo

    This will be a giant week for tech stocks and tech investors, beginning with three huge names reporting earnings Tuesday: Yahoo, Intel and IBM. So rather than focus on what these companies HAVE reported, I thought I'd focus on what to expect instead.

  • Intel Earnings: What You Should Expect (Pt 2) Monday, 15 Oct 2007 | 3:58 PM ET

    Here's part two of my what to expect posts on tech earnings this week: At Intel, a decidedly more upbeat outlook for the world's largest chipmaker Intel: The company took the unusual step of hosting a mid-quarter financial update a few weeks ago, raising its outlook and narrowing its gross margins to a healthy 52%.

  • IBM Earnings: What You Should Expect (Pt 3) Monday, 15 Oct 2007 | 3:56 PM ET

    Here's part three of my outlook for tech earnings this week: IBM might be the dark horse suitor to step in and snap BEA Systems right out from under Oracle. That could come up on the company's conference call.

  • BEA, Oracle at Odds on $17 a Share Offer Friday, 12 Oct 2007 | 6:33 PM ET
    Oracle's headquarters in California.

    BEA Systems said on Friday that its board had concluded that a $17 per share unsolicited takeover bid from Oracle "significantly under-values BEA."

  • Google Cracks $600; $Googleplex Next? Tuesday, 9 Oct 2007 | 12:01 PM ET
    Google

    Is there no end in sight for Google and its shares? Last week when the company was oh-so-close to $600, I wrote that price targets would be on the move now that the company was teasing investors with yet another key milestone on its journey to the stratosphere, and sure enough, Bear Stearns revised its 52-week target to $700 just two days later.

  • Google Jumps Past $600; Firm Bigger Than Wal-Mart Monday, 8 Oct 2007 | 4:34 PM ET

    Shares in Google surged past a new benchmark of $600, fueled by investor confidence that the Web search leader's advertising technology will capitalize on new areas of the media industry.

  • SAP Shares Slump on Business Objects Deal Monday, 8 Oct 2007 | 11:30 AM ET

    Shares of SAP, the world's leading business software maker, tumbled Monday on the news that it would buy Franco-American company Business Objects, as investors feared the price of the transaction was too high.

  • Unlocking Apple's iPhone Profit Stream? Monday, 8 Oct 2007 | 11:01 AM ET
    Apple iPhone

    Apple shares continue to take off, thanks to news nuggets here and there about the better-than-expected iPhone sales success. In fact, shares are so high that rumblings of an impending stock split are coming back, even though CEO Steve Jobs was pretty clear at his shareholders meeting earlier this year, offering up props to the Google no-split stock-price strategy (Eric Schmidt sits on Apple's board) and steering investors away from the idea of any kind of split.

  • Microsoft 'Halo' Creators to be Separate Company Friday, 5 Oct 2007 | 12:22 PM ET

  • Halo 3: Does Success Push Bungie Out Of The Game? Thursday, 4 Oct 2007 | 3:17 PM ET

    You can't say we didn't warn you: Halo 3 is an even bigger success than analysts thought it would be and the numbers are simply staggering. So staggering in fact that the game title alone might be enough to push Microsoft's Xbox 360 into the black for the first time in its history...

  • Google: Why It's Good To Be Them (Almost $600/Share) Wednesday, 3 Oct 2007 | 4:57 PM ET

    So close, but so far yesterday, and now it appears investors will have to wait a little longer for Google to hit that magic, $600 a share milestone. This isn't quite "Dow 10,000," but the numbers are nothing short of staggering.

  • Icahn Boosts Stakes in BEA Systems, Temple Inland Wednesday, 3 Oct 2007 | 11:48 AM ET
