    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.

    Microsoft

    If you believe the media -- and you should, every word ;)  -- you'd think this nation was spiraling toward recession. But it's not necessarily so. Take Microsoft as an example...

  • Microsoft Ready To Challenge Google? Yahoo? Both? Friday, 25 Jan 2008 | 11:32 AM ET

    If the entertainment and device division performance by Microsoft in its second quarter was a surprise, the company's online business growth is a stunner, especially as the company tries to chip away at Google's near total dominance.

  • When Microsoft's earnings came out yesterday, I had to do a double-take because it was hard for me to process just how strong these numbers truly were. I knew the company was poised for a strong quarter, but it was the breadth of its success, and optimistic guidance that took me, and so many investors, by surprise.

    Microsoft's earnings may be the most anticipated report from the tech sector, and possibly the most anticipated report during the earnings season, and here's why: The company is just as big a deal in this country as it is in Europe, Asia, emerging markets.

  • Texas Instruments reports after the bell, and the company will be forced into Apple Inc.'s shadow, which might be a shame. That's because this company could offer up some surprisingly good news, both in wireless and in flat TV's.

    They are easily the most anticipated numbers of the year by Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony:  NPD's year-end sales figures for the video games industry.  And what a story they tell. NPD reports tonight a record $17.94 billion was spent on non-PC game hardware, software and accessories; a staggering 43 percent better than 2006.

  • Hey, Wall St.: Don't Dump Intel! Wednesday, 16 Jan 2008 | 12:54 PM ET

    Ouch. There's really no other way to summarize Intel's earnings, and there's little question that Intel's softness took Wall Street by surprise.

  • Macworld: What Can We Expect From Jobs And Company? Friday, 11 Jan 2008 | 2:42 PM ET

    It's the Friday before Macworld and once again, tongues are wagging about what Steve Jobs will pull out of his jeans pocket; what he might have lurking up his trademarked black sleeve; whether he can offer up something to pump some life back into this sagging stock.
