Intel reported earnings that fell precipitously from last year but matched Wall Street forecasts, the chip maker tempered its outlook for the current quarter.
Among computer geeks of a certain age Microsoft has long been synonymous with the word evil. I think that's giving the brass at Microsoft a little too much credit. To me, they're just clueless. Steve Ballmer should just go ahead and fire everyone over the age of, say, 35, and let people who really understand how computers are used run the show.
CES will be something of a preview of what’s to come for the consumer electronics industry this year. Less will have to be more, as revenue and investment shrink while buyers and profits become scarce.
Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs said a hormone imbalance is behind the weight loss that has prompted rumors about his health.
Cisco Systems, the dominant provider of the digital pipes that run the Internet, is making a big play in digital entertainment, the New York Times reports.

It's time for a minor mea culpa. On last night's show Jim talked about the lack of pin action off of Hewlett-Packard's positive earnings preannouncement. We concluded that good news for Hewlett-Packard couldn't be extrapolated to the rest of tech because we'd heard so much bad news and so many negative forecasts, for example from Intel spacer. Then I, like a doofus, went and wrote a post about pin action, or more specifically the lack thereof.
Dell reported earnings that declined 5 percent but easily exceeded expectations, sending its shares higher in late trading.
As Cliff Mason noted earlier today, Cramer likes to talk about "pin action" a lot -- the effect that one company's good fortune usually has on other, related companies (parts manufacturers, for example). The key word, however, is "usually." In the disastrous market we have these days, you can't even depend on this pin action any more.
Cramer's prediction yesterday that tech hasn't seen bottom yet and was due for more beating came true today, with most big tech names ending lower. One of the most beaten-down of these companies was AMD. Still, even with the dismal tech sector in the dismal overall market, there's still money to be made IF you're willing to speculate on battered stocks like -- you got it -- AMD. But "battered" doesn't even do this company justice: it's down 67% for the year and had another bloody session today.
As investors search for "recession-proof" investments, they may find buying opportunities in video games, once a realm dominated almost exclusively by teenage boys.
Microchip maker Intel warned that its revenue would be about 14 percent below its previous forecast due to weak demand around the globe and in all market segments. The stock plunged after-hours.

Flash memory maker SanDisk has rejected a takeover bid from Samsung Electronics valued at $5.85 billion, or $26 a share, which the world's top maker of memory chips made late Tuesday.
There was a time not too long ago when Hewlett-Packard simply became "HP." I'm not talking about the "HP" it's always been known as, but "HP" as the official new name of the company, supplanting Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, and joining the ranks of KFC as a company running the risk of forgetting history for the sake of convenience and short-hand.
Dell reported a profit that fell well short of consensus expectations, punishing the company's shares in late trading.
Hewlett Packard reported a profit that rose over last year and beat analysts' forecasts by 3 cents a share. Sales also beat expectations.
