  • VMware the 'Google' of Virtualization -- Stockwise Tuesday, 14 Aug 2007 | 3:31 PM ET
    VMWARE

    Ever hear of VMware? Probably not since the company works in high end "virtualization software" that makes a computer run better; the way STP or other fuel enhancers increase the performance of your car? VMware does that with software for your PC.

  • Fake Steve "Outed" As iMac Makes Real News Monday, 6 Aug 2007 | 1:46 PM ET

    First things first: I'm disappointed. Fake Steve Jobs has been outed and I'm bummed about it. Some mysteries ought to just stay that way. Over the weekend, the New York Times' tech reporter Brad Stone outed Fake Steve as Forbes' Senior Editor Daniel Lyons. So now, as I read the blog, instead of hearing Steve Jobs' voice tell me the words, I hear someone else. Noise. A distraction. Something NOT Steve, but just another writer trying to be Steve. And that's a bummer.

    Video game publisher Take-Two Interactive Software said Thursday it is delaying the release the latest installment of its top-selling "Grand Theft Auto" game until next year. The company cut its 2007 earnings outlook as a result of the delay, sending shares down sharply in after-hours trading.

  • Google: Is gPhone Dialing Up Once Again? Thursday, 2 Aug 2007 | 3:58 PM ET
    A gPhone in the future?

    Here we go again--when it comes to all the speculation swirling around whether Google will jump into the cell phone market, not with new software, but with a handset of its own. To wit, we've already reported the myriad possibilities and puzzle pieces pointing to a possible cell-phone market entry by the search giant

  • Google: "Searching" For The Wireless Spectrum Tuesday, 31 Jul 2007 | 2:51 PM ET

    The experts call the 700Mhz wireless spectrum the last piece of undeveloped beachfront real estate in cyberspace, and Google wants it. "I'll tell you, even at Google you can't make a $4.6 billion commitment without being serious," says Chris Sacca, Google's vice president who's spearheading the company's aggressive lobbying effort of the FCC to make sure its voice is heard in the upcoming auction of wireless spectrum.

  • Microsoft Meeting: Will Another Demo End Up On YouTube? Thursday, 26 Jul 2007 | 4:35 PM ET

    Microsoft's top brass are hosting the company's Financial Analysts Meeting at company headquarters in Redmond, Washington today. I was going to be there as well, but at the last minute, changed plans for several reasons. And it was probably a good idea, at least for Microsoft.

  • Now that the major tech earnings parade has largely passed by, I have a chance to reflect on some bizarre developments swirling around both Google and Apple. This is the first of two blogs today, but I'll focus here on Google. It's interesting to note, that both companies are caught in a strange whirlpool of shifting euphoria, great expectations--and then punishing share-price brutality when performance doesn't match up with what the experts were looking for.

  • Apple's conference call continues at this hour with the company's Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer re-iterating the company's projections to sell 10 million iPhones, despite the perceived slow start the product has suffered. Further, the company's shares opened to enormous volatility after being halted just moments before the earnings release hit the the tape.

  • Apple Beats Street But What About Those iPhone Sales? Wednesday, 25 Jul 2007 | 5:08 PM ET

    Apple Inc. released its Third Quarter numbers and for a company more than doubling this past year, this was not the news investors were hoping for. The Third Quarter was a blow-out by normal standards: the 92 cents a share and $5.41 billion in revenue soundly beat the 72 cents and $5.285 billion the Street expected. Same goes for the 1.76 million Macs and 9.8 million iPods shipped on the quarter. Gross margins climbed to 36%. All very good news.

  • Apple iPhone: Unable To Ring Up Enough AT&T Customers? Tuesday, 24 Jul 2007 | 10:39 AM ET

    Too much hype? Or not enough? It's clear, from AT&T's earnings news this morning, that Apple iPhone projections were way ahead of reality. That "popping" noise could be Apple shares. I wrote earlier today that Apple's highly hyped iPhone performed nowhere near Wall Street expectations during its first 30 hours on sale: AT&T reports 146,000 activations during its first weekend on sale.

  • iPhone Fits Apple To a "T" (AT&T That Is) Monday, 23 Jul 2007 | 1:08 PM ET

    AT&T reports earnings Tuesday and while the company's NYSE trading symbol is "T," in this case, "t" stands for telegraph, as in telegraphing what to expect from Apple which reports on Wednesday. In AT&T's case, the Street is looking for 67 cents on $29.61 billion in revenue. Rather than looking at the company's entire financial picture, I want to focus on the wireless sector since I'm really more interested in what all this could mean for Apple a day later.

  • Tech earnings for the week are in the books and we now all get to look ahead to Apple Inc.'s earnings next Wednesday. But reading the tea leaves from some of the biggest names reporting this week may signal a pretty good uptick in tech. And despite NASDAQ's declines today, some positive trends are developing that may signal a nice opportunity for investors.

  • Fake Steve Jobs Meet Fake Gene Munster: It's A Blog Party Thursday, 19 Jul 2007 | 12:44 PM ET

    So, earlier today, I delved into the drama gripping the blogosphere: Fake Steve Jobs and the efforts to unmask him. Now we have a fake Wall Street analyst purporting to be one of the key voices covering the company.
