I'm skeptical, to say the least, of a report originally in the Chinese language Economic Daily News, and now re-printed by Digitimes detailing an iPhone shipment slowdown by Apple. The story says Apple has lowered its projected shipments of iPhones from 2 million units to around 1 million or 1.2 million for its fiscal second quarter ending march 2008.
This is the LIVE blog from Tuesday's Apple earnings conference call. Read it for the first time or re-read again. I had fun doing it and I hope you enjoy reading it.
eBay is one of the net's four horsemen, ushering in a spate of online earnings after the bell today, and coming a week ahead of Yahoo (next Tuesday); Amazon (next Wednesday); and Google (next Thursday.) So eBay's earnings will put the entire sector under the spotlight.
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.
Just some quick thoughts on what started out as a brutal morning, but is "coming back" a little thanks to the Fed's must-do move minutes ago: I heard from many of you over the weekend, and the tone was a little surprising.
Apple Inc.'s earnings are always a big-time financial event, but this time, the company's numbers will be followed more closely than ever before. Why? Worries about a recession, concerns over a lackluster holiday shopping season, insecurity about how the company's products are selling.

It's not often that I'm thrown for a loop when a company reports earnings. But when the headline number from Advanced Micro Devices crossed the wires as a loss of $3.06 a share, my eyes nearly popped. Where's the charge coming from? What's the problem here? What did we all miss?
Google shares continue to slide, and this is getting ugly. The question investors and the Street are asking is how low these shares can go? The Google chart is as ugly as it's ever been. No real surprise in some respects since many of the biggest names in big-cap tech have been torpedoed along with the rest of the market.

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. Just look at the shellacking these shares are taking today. But is the selloff warranted, or -- like so many other moves to the downside in recent weeks among the top names in tech -- is the Intel drubbing overdone?
What a crazy day for Apple Inc., Macworld attendees, and me. Still trying to get the feeling back in my thumbs after live-blogging, via Blackberry, during the keynote. I really hope you found that useful.

This is the text of my live blog from the Steve Jobs speech at Macworld. It was fun to do and I hope you enjoy reading it for the first time, or re-reading it again.

When it comes to Apple Inc. and Wall Street, I don't get it. These last few weeks have seen a precipitous decline in Apple shares, from a high right near $203 to a low of $171. The fall in Apple shares follows a general downdraft in all kinds of tech, yet many experts both in and outside the company I'm talking to have continued to harp on the "fundamentals" that got Apple to those lofty heights to begin with.
You knew it was coming simply because we all know that stocks, particularly tech stocks, don't move in only one direction despite what we've seen since Jan. 1. It took a stunning IBM pre-announcement to get the ball rolling, and that ball is rolling, fast.
Jeff Raikes, president of Microsoft's Business Division, is calling it quits after 26 years at the company, announcing his retirement today. He'll be replaced by Stephen Elop, who most recently served as Juniper Network's chief operating officer.
