    It's official, or as official as this is going to get: HD DVD is dead; long live Blu-ray! All along, industry pundits have compared the next-generation DVD format war to the Beta vs. VHS conflict when VCRs first burst on the scene. I didn't realize just how true that comparison truly was.

  • Microsoft's hostile play for Yahoo certainly isn't lacking from strong opinions about the deal from experts on both sides of the argument. But the more interesting opinions are coming from the companies themselves.

  • George Lucas And The Next Installment Of "Star Wars" Wednesday, 13 Feb 2008 | 2:42 PM ET

    Forget about Apple Inc. for a second; even the ongoing drama between Microsoft and Yahoo: the real news on the technology front comes from George Lucas and his plans for the next installment of "Star Wars."

  • RIM's BlackBerry Buckling Under Bigger Growth Tuesday, 12 Feb 2008 | 3:37 PM ET
    Blackberry 8800

    Research in Motion appears to be suffering from growing pains and while strong sales are usually good news for a company, they could become cataclysmic if the company can't handle the additions.

  • Apple: On The Road (Back) To Respect? Tuesday, 12 Feb 2008 | 11:10 AM ET

    Apple Inc. as a "value play?" Seems counter-intuitive to think of a company trading at better than 20 times next year's earnings as a "value," but maybe--just maybe--the Street is coming around to the idea that the growth and potential of this company seem horribly undervalued.

  • 'CrackBerry' Crisis: Outage Hits The Americas Monday, 11 Feb 2008 | 7:01 PM ET

    It is a "CrackBerry" addict's worst nightmare: a catastrophic outage affecting the company's entire network in the Americas. In an e-mail to its enterprise clients, Research in Motion says it has suffered a "critical severity outage" --and the company as of yet is providing no details as to when the network will be back up and running.

  • Yahoo Set to Reject Microsoft, But Should It? Sunday, 10 Feb 2008 | 1:55 PM ET

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.

  • Cisco Stuns Street with Lousy Forecast Wednesday, 6 Feb 2008 | 6:26 PM ET

    The news from Cisco was a kind of Goldilocks earnings report...a small upside surprise on the topline to the tune of $30 million: $9.83 billion instead of the consensus of $9.8 billion the Street was looking for. Until the guidance. Ouch.

  • Cisco's Earnings: A Case Of High Anxiety For The Street Wednesday, 6 Feb 2008 | 12:39 PM ET

    Just a few hours to go now before Cisco reports and to say there's a nervous tension on Wall Street right now anticipating the news is a deep understatement. It's palpable. I've spent a chunk of the morning calling investors and culling reaction: "nervous" comes up a lot.

  • Cisco's Outlook Ready To Set Tech Stage Tuesday, 5 Feb 2008 | 12:35 PM ET

    If guidance and outlook have been the Achilles' heels of so many great-earnings-reports-gone-bad this earnings season, then the grand-daddy of them all could come at the close Wednesday when Cisco Systems reports its earnings.

  • Silicon Valley & The Election: Big $$$ Endorsements Tuesday, 5 Feb 2008 | 11:34 AM ET

  • With all the attention we lavish on Google as it breaks through one stock-price plateau or another, it seems only fair to cover the company's stock as it retreats as well. Retreat might be an understatement.

  • Search: Arrogance +: Google Monday, 4 Feb 2008 | 12:00 PM ET

    I read and re-read the blogpost from Google Chief Legal Officer David Drummond yesterday -- distracted from the Super Bowl by the words on the screen because I couldn't believe what I was seeing. The real clash of the titans was unfolding -- not on the gridiron, but online.

  • Microsoft CEO Ballmer: His Memo On Plans For Yahoo Friday, 1 Feb 2008 | 11:02 AM ET

  • Microsoft Goes "Hostile" In Search For Yahoo Friday, 1 Feb 2008 | 8:52 AM ET

    Microsoft's take-out play for Yahoo is a stunning move by the world's largest software maker, even though rumors of a deal have been swirling for the better part of a year. The 62 percent premium Microsoft is willing to pay for Yahoo, valuing the deal at a shade under $45 billion, shows just how serious--and just how frustrated--Microsoft has become with Yahoo.
