  • 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.

  • "Big Bad Apple" Fake Steve: Your Emails Friday, 12 Sep 2008 | 1:32 PM ET

    I had a feeling my early morning post about Dan Lyons and his Apple monopoly mongering might engender some choice responses from some of you. But some of these posts might surprise you. Here's a taste:

  • Fake Steve Jobs and His Real Bad Argument Friday, 12 Sep 2008 | 4:36 AM ET
    Apple Store 5th Ave NY

    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.

  • Research In Motion: Time For Their Spotlight Wednesday, 10 Sep 2008 | 1:47 PM ET

    Apple owned the spotlight yesterday with its iPod event in San Francisco, but today and tomorrow it will all be about Research in Motion, with CEO Jim Balsillie preparing to keynote the big CTIA Wireless expo Thursday, which comes a week before the company issues its quarterly earnings.

  • Steve Jobs Talks New iPods, Health: My One On One Tuesday, 9 Sep 2008 | 4:37 PM ET
    Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduces the new iPod Nano in San Francisco, Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2008.

    Steve Jobs is healthy, was taken by surprise by all the speculation about his health swirling around him after his last public appearance in June, and says while he could "stand to gain 10 or 15 pounds," he's doing just fine.

  • 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.

  • Real DVD: Upload Movie Discs On Your Computer Monday, 8 Sep 2008 | 2:23 PM ET
    RealNetworks

    With this $50 software (the introductory rate is cheaper) users can upload unlimited DVDs onto one hard drive. This allows someone who's constantly on the go to load up all their favorite DVDs onto their laptop for entertainment on those long flights.

  • Apple "Fatigue" Hitting The Street? Monday, 8 Sep 2008 | 1:41 PM ET
    A flag showing the Apple Computer logo flies outside the Apple shop in Regent Street, London

    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.

  • Apple Says "Let's Rock" With New "Family" Of IPods Thursday, 4 Sep 2008 | 1:58 PM ET

    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.

  • Yahoo

    Both companies are in the red today thanks to the JP Morgan report out this morning suggesting weakness in display advertising because of the general economic malaise gripping so many companies during this non-recession recession.

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

    Never mind that chrome is typically the stuff that gets dented on older car bumpers, Google thinks Chrome will be the answer to Microsoft's browser dominance on the net.

  • Dell's Margin Erosion Prompts Selloff Friday, 29 Aug 2008 | 12:58 PM ET

    Computer maker Dell shares fell 13 percent Friday, as both earnings and margins fell short of Wall Street estimates.

  • Dell Sees Tech Weakness Spreading as Profit Falls Thursday, 28 Aug 2008 | 5:28 PM ET

    Dell reported a profit that fell well short of consensus expectations, punishing the company's shares in late trading.

  • 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. We in the news business sensationalize, we rationalize, we sanitize, we get things wrong, and sometimes we stick with stories far too long. But the ugly little truth is that the news business can actually (mis-)manage the news itself...
