  • Consumer, Credit "Concerns" At GS Conference Wednesday, 5 Sep 2007 | 12:25 PM ET

    If you were looking for a sign of the times when it comes to the mood of the marketplace, my location today may be a fair indicator. It is the first day of Fashion Week and rather than being under the tents in Bryant Park, I am at the Goldman Sachs investor conference.

  • Woods, Mickelson: Why They Don't Play Every FedEx Cup Wednesday, 5 Sep 2007 | 8:58 AM ET

    FedEx. We have a problem? Tiger Woods, who led the field heading into the Barclay's, the first FedEx Cup tournament, didn't play in it. Now, Phil Mickelson, who just won the second FedEx Cup tournament (the Deutsche Bank Championship) and is now in first place, isn't playing the BMW, the third tournament on the list.

  • The Perfect Contest: America's Ugliest Office Tuesday, 4 Sep 2007 | 1:59 PM ET

    I have found it. The perfect contest for the miserable office worker. Acco Brands is sponsoring America’s Ugliest Office. Enter at www.americasugliestoffice.com and you have a shot at either a 42” HDTV, or a TRIP TO HAWAII. Talk about bringing hope to the downtrodden! One mock-up of an ugly office has the chair doubling as a toilet, so you never have to leave. Nice. The contest runs through Nov. 30, and, so far, Jerry’s home office in Columbus gets my vote.

  • John Isner Is A 'Prince' Of An Endorser Tuesday, 4 Sep 2007 | 11:10 AM ET

  • Michigan, Appalachian State: Who Really Won? Tuesday, 4 Sep 2007 | 8:44 AM ET

    The University of Michigan's loss to Appalachian State on Saturday was such an upset partly because of the financial differences between the two schools. If Appalachian State sells out every home game this year, they will make roughly $2.1 million (charging a little more than $20 a head with 16,650 seats per game. Michigan has sold out all eight home games already...

  • KFC Has A 'Finger Lickin Good' Mail Call Friday, 31 Aug 2007 | 12:35 PM ET
    KFC Delivers in the office.

    KFC is trying to get people to buy its new $2.99 lunch deals by going door-to-door at the office. Literally. It is paying to put plates of chicken on company mail carts making the rounds in office buildings before lunch.

  • David Beckham: One Goal And Done? Friday, 31 Aug 2007 | 9:14 AM ET
    David Beckham

    David Beckham's latest, if you haven't heard, is a sprained knee. They say it could take him out until the final three games of the season. To be honest, I'm relieved. I obviously don't wish bad things on Beckham or anyone for that matter, but I'm really glad this thing is over. Why?

  • L'Oreal CEO Confident on 2007 Despite U.S. Slowdown Friday, 31 Aug 2007 | 8:14 AM ET

  • Credit Crunch Crunching Internet Advertising? Thursday, 30 Aug 2007 | 4:55 PM ET

    From Wall Street to Madison Avenue to Silicon Valley--the subprime credit crunch is taking its toll. Mortgage and lending companies are among the biggest online advertisers, so if they start cutting back on their ad spending, then it'll be noticed. Financial services comprised 16% of the total $17 billion in Internet ad spending in 2006, and that percentage was likely even larger this year.

  • Yanks/ BoSox Rivalry: Ticket To Big Business Thursday, 30 Aug 2007 | 2:18 PM ET

    I love the rivalries and I love to cover the business of rivalries. Because it’s amazing what people will pay for a ticket and how many people feel they have to be in the stadium. Just got a great number from the folks at eBay’s StubHub. For last night’s Red Sox-Yankees game, there were 9,216 tickets sold on StubHub. Just to give you an idea, that’s about 16 percent of the crowd.

  • New Fashion? There's Not Much New To Buy Thursday, 30 Aug 2007 | 9:06 AM ET

    I have seen the future in next seasons' fashion at America's biggest retailers and to put it bluntly, there is no fashion. This is the new worry to add into the equation of whether (and how much) the consumer will slow his/her spending: there is nothing new to buy. The fashion cycle is stuck. The "style" is a return to classics which means that people already have the items in their closet.

  • A&P Market Rap Video: Eat To The Beets Anyone? Thursday, 30 Aug 2007 | 8:51 AM ET
    A&P Supermarkets

    Two brothers from New Jersey have been fired from an A&P market for filming a rap video called “Produce Paradise.” Click here to check it out. Yes, it’s juvenile and somewhat disgusting, and it reminds us all to thoroughly rinse our veggies when we get home from the grocery store.

  • Bonds' Homer Balls No Real Hit With Bidders Wednesday, 29 Aug 2007 | 3:09 PM ET
    Matt Murphy

    I know. There's still 17 days left for someone to bid on Barry Bonds' home run balls No. 755 and No. 756. But I think it's a big deal--though not surprising--that 25 hours after the auction was put online there's not a single bid registered. The minimum bid for No. 755 is $60,000. The minimum bid for No. 756 is $100,000.

  • Ana Ivanovic: Last Post For Now (But Maybe Not!) Tuesday, 28 Aug 2007 | 10:02 AM ET

    To the dismay of many of you, I have to get on to covering something other than Ana Ivanovic, so today will be the last day (at least until next week, if she makes a run at the U.S. Open) I'm going to focus on her story. First, to the business. If you haven't already, or would like to look again, check out the beautiful slide show we made.

  • Vogue Proving That Print Is Alive (With The Internet) Monday, 27 Aug 2007 | 10:10 AM ET
    Vogue Magazine, September 2007

    Who said print was dead? September's issue of Vogue (owned by Conde Nast) boasts a record breaking 727 advertising pages: the most ad pages EVER published in a monthly consumer magazine. Sienna Miller graces the cover of the door-stop sized mag which is on shelves now. The oversize layout is a sign that fashion magazines are alive and kicking in a publication industry otherwise suffering from ever declining ad revenues.

  • Ana Ivanovic Day On CNBC (Yes, She's My Favorite) Monday, 27 Aug 2007 | 9:44 AM ET
    Ana Ivanovic

    With the start of the U.S. Open today, I am hereby declaring it National Ana Ivanovic day. I'm sure the government won't sanction it because she's not an American citizen, but so what? The fifth-ranked tennis beauty is playing Aiko Nakamura today in Louis Armstrong Stadium. All day on CNBC, you'll see the awesome story of Ivanovic, who could be the next force in the sports marketing world if she wins the final grand slam of the year.
