This is the first of two posts on my "exclusive" interview with Bon Jovi. Be sure and come back tomorrow for more. Bon Jovi's tour continues through the United States today, but it was at a visit to Silicon Valley earlier this week that I got a taste of the phenomenal technology the band is using during the show.
You ever watch popcorn pop? The oil gets hot, the kernels start moving around, and then one pops. And another. And then pretty soon, it gets so hot that everything pops all at once. Check out what's going on today on Wall Street with Apple and you gotta wonder whether these are merely the first kernels to pop before the company reports earnings.
Motorola said Monday it has settled all litigation with billionaire investor Carl Icahn ahead of the cellphone maker's annual meeting and agreed to name two of Icahn's nominees to its board of directors.
Microsoft's deadline ditty late Friday that Yahoo has three weeks left to get a deal done before the deal gets hostile spurred a lengthy, and at some times personal, retort from Yahoo. And the rhetoric is getting interesting, but only to a point.
The European Union on Monday opened the way for air travelers to use mobile phones to talk, text or send e-mails on planes throughout Europe's airspace.
Mobile phone maker Motorola said after U.S. markets closed Thursday that it was cutting jobs and paying severance payments to around 2,600 workers, resulting in a net pre-tax charge in the first quarter of around $104 million.

Some of us knew it was going to happen; it was just a matter of when. Over the last few Apple events, it seemed as if Steve Jobs would always throw a graphic up on the big screen behind him to show the progress iTunes had been making against the traditional music retailers.

Let's face it. Most people above a certain age don't "get" instant messaging.

If you think this company sounds boring or its products aren't sexy, you haven't seen RIM's growth numbers.
Today could be a watershed day for Research in Motion after a raucous quarter that saw shares dip into the low $80s before launching their recent recovery over the past week or so. And that's the quirkiness comes in: never during the quarter was there an indication that fundamentals hit any snags, and yet shares suffered a precipitous decline.
We've spent a lot of time at CTIA talking about Research in Motion, Apple, Nokia and other major players from the wireless world. But it was the surprising comments from Microsoft's spacer entertainment and devices division president during my interview with him that began to drive Microsoft's shares.
