  • EA Plays the Microsoft Game Sunday, 14 Sep 2008 | 7:24 PM ET

    If Electronic Art's unsolicited bid for Take-Two Interactive sounds a lot like Microsoft's unsolicited play for Yahoo — complete with both EA and Microsoft ultimately walking away — think again.

  • RIM's Balsillie Still Interested In NHL Friday, 12 Sep 2008 | 3:17 PM ET

    The background is this: Balsillie has been Jonesing for an NHL team for the past several years. He looked close to getting a deal done for the financially strapped Pittsburgh Penguins. When that didn't work out, he started to focus on the Nashville Predators.

    Look, I don't want to play the role of Apple defender, because heaven only knows message boards and Apple shorts think I support this company too much already.

    This is the guy who is running arguably the most effective, most innovative company in arguably one of the most exciting and dynamic sectors in tech. And he just doesn't tend to sit down for TV interviews.

    Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduces the new iPod Nano in San Francisco, Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2008.

  • Apple Event "Let's Rock": The Live Blog Tuesday, 9 Sep 2008 | 12:42 PM ET
    iPod - Lets Rock!

    This is the live blog of the Apple "Let's Rock" event. The first post is at the bottom of the page, with the last enry at top.

  • As you might imagine, the reactions to the my earlier post today about Apple fatigue plaguing investors seems to have struck a nerve. Here are some more of your responses:

  • I just knew that when I wrote that last post about some on the Street growing tired of Apple, that it would lead to a few responses from some of you. Well, I was right.

  • Apple "Fatigue" Hitting The Street? Monday, 8 Sep 2008 | 1:41 PM ET

    Yet this time around, it seems to me that Apple is laboring to manufacture the magic. Investor expectations have been ratcheting up at fever pitch for four straight years. It's simply getting more difficult to wow them every time.

  • New Microsoft Ad With Seinfeld Hardly a "Shoe-In" Friday, 5 Sep 2008 | 2:40 PM ET
    Jerry Seinfeld

    A few weeks ago, I detailed in a blog Microsoft's decision to use comedian Jerry Seinfeld as its new pitchman. I wrote then of the unusual choice of a professional complainer who hasn't done anything meaningful since his show Seinfeld went off the air a decade ago.

    Attention will turn from Jobs himself to those new products and what Apple will do for iPod. This is still clearly the little music player that could, and can. Investors have been waiting for iPod sales to slow precipitously, and while they are slowing, it's not nearly as bad as investors feared.

  • Google Puts a Shine to 'Chrome' Tuesday, 2 Sep 2008 | 1:02 PM ET
    Google Headquarters

  • Steve Jobs' Mark Twain Moment: "Reports of My Death..." Thursday, 28 Aug 2008 | 12:47 PM ET
    Steve Jobs

    The news business can be an ugly business sometimes. Just ask Apple and its CEO Steve Jobs—the subject of an erroneous obituary report Thursday.

  • Apple's "Mac vs. PC" ads are advertising legend now, and in 30 seconds can do more to spotlight the differences between Apple and Microsoft than just about anything else. So effective, they even annoyed Bill Gates. Microsoft's counter-attack? Jerry Seinfeld (!)
