Americans may love their smartphones—but they aren't necessarily so enamored with how their colleagues are using them in the workplace.» Read More
In the great pantheon of Apple stories--the iPod, the Mac, the iPhone; and all the good guy, bad guy stories swirling around Steve Jobs, there's another story arguably more important than all of them.
It's here! Or almost here. It's the new Research in Motion BlackBerry 9000 Bold, and what a bold step this is. It's been a year since RIM released an update, and during that time, just about every spotlight has turned to the iPhone from Apple with so many experts ceding the market to the upstart touch-screen wonder.
Research In Motion is launching a new high-end version of the BlackBerry aimed at its core base of business users, but it hopes the sleek device will also catch on in the broad retail market.
A funny thing has been happening to Google lately. Have you noticed? It's going up! And I'm not talking about the one-day pop it got from those surprisingly good earnings. I'm talking about the day to day creep-up, the steady momentum. The parallels to Apple are pretty striking.
Haim Israel of Merrill Lynch in Jerusalem has some ideas about smaller Israeli companies that might have escaped the attention of U.S. investors.
Sprint Nextel and Clearwire are close to announcing a $12 billion joint venture with major cable operators for high speed wireless Internet access for mobile phones and laptops, a source said.
Airports and hotels are looking for new ways to pay for the wireless networks that their customers are demanding.
Sprint Nextel is considering spinning off or selling its Nextel unit, The Wall Street Journal reported on Monday, quoting people familiar with the situation.
I don't get it. I wish I did, but when it comes to Apple, I just don't get it. Shares have been ebbing and flowing with little rhyme or reason since the end of last year, and it continues. Heading into last week's earrings, they rallied.
Hours away from Apple's earnings, as you might expect, investors are a little nervous -- with a stock going from $119 to just short of $170, and then back to $160 in a matter of weeks. Some of you have written in with your thoughts ahead of earnings. Here's a sampling...
Mobile phone maker Sony Ericsson posted sharply lower profits on Wednesday as a slowdown in consumer spending hit its business, but earnings were at the high end of the firm's range and exceeded market expectations.
Back in February, following weeks of steady coverage focusing on Apple's fundamentals, I wrote that the Apple sell-off, which had taken shares from over $202 to around $119, seemed overdone.
A weaker economy is forcing U.S. consumers to find ways to lower their telephone bills, likely limiting profit growth for phone companies like AT&T and Verizon Communications.
AT&T said Friday it would cut its work force by 1.5 percent, or 4,600 jobs, primarily affecting management-level employees, resulting in a first-quarter pre-tax charge of $374 million.
It's so easy to paint investing with broad brushstrokes, and say "tech" is strong, or "tech" is bad, but with Intel, IBM, eBay and Google all reporting this week, we get to remind ourselves that the sector is made up of individual stocks and individual industries.
This is the second of my two part blogs on Bon Jovi. Make no mistake: Bon Jovi is big business, as we discovered during the band's recent stopover here in Silicon Valley in the middle of its 100 city, global "Lost Highway" tour. Just ask the band's manager, Paul Korzilius.
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.
