In an earlier post I talked about the effect Michael Jackson's death was having on various big players on the internet. But one of the biggest players is seeing some of the biggest impact.
The web has become much more than merely a place to post feelings; it's an international global marketplace, and with social networking one of the hottest things going, we're seeing a convergence of financial and personal exchanges on an incredible level in the wake of Michael Jackson's death.
There's no question Palm's quarterly report surprised investors by beating the Street. With expectations already so high, you'd have thought Palm shares were already priced to perfection.
Google sure would like us all to believe that its dominance is now facing a real threat from Microsoft, Yahoo, and any number of also-ran crumb-eaters trying to stake their claim in Search.
It was extraordinary enough that Methodist University Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee released a statement last night confirming that Apple CEO Steve Jobs had a liver transplant, and the circumstances surrounding how he secured the procedure.
Palm will release its quarterly earnings Thursday, and this report is arguably the most important in the company's recent history. This stock has been on a wild ride since January, and investors will learn whether they're aboard a rocket to the moon, or a nuclear missile ready to explode.
Facing mounting criticism that Apple CEO Steve Jobs acquired a donated liver somehow through unethical means, the hospital where Jobs had the operation took the extraordinary step of confirming the surgery, and offered the reasons why Jobs was a prime candidate for the organ.
It was a solid fourth quarter for the world's second largest software maker, but investors who have pushed these shares higher by better than 50 percent over the past quarter were apparently looking for something more.
It's sounds almost simplistic to say that Oracle's spacer shares will only move tonight after the company reports its fourth quarter earnings with a sizeable surprise, either to the up or downside. And some analysts I'm talking to say that surprise, to the upside, is indeed a real possibility.
Steve Jobs did report to work today, as I suggested in an earlier post, at Apple's Cupertino headquarters, according to employees who have seen him on campus.
It struck me, as it did so many of you, in reading the Apple press release about iPhone 3GS sales this past weekend, a notable quote from Steve Jobs. A simple sentence, espousing nothing more different than anything Jobs has said before: iPhone is great, App Store is great, Apple is great.
Investors, start-ups and major corporations are pouring money into services that make it easier to use cellphones to buy goods and transfer money, the New York Times reports.
Let the controversies, speculation and navel-gazing begin anew as it relates to Steve Jobs, Apple, health, disclosure, fiduciary responsibility, who knew what and when and where do we all go from here.
All this talk this week about the coming iPhone 3GS and lost in the noise was a major development for SiriusXM Radio, and something users have been clamoring for
Piper Jaffray is admitting that its initial estimate of 500,000 iPhone 3GS handsets might have been too conservative. Gene Munster published a note this afternoon based on admittedly non-scientific data, but useful information nonetheless.
So just how busy is Apple's flagship San Francisco store? By 915aPDT, 354 customers had come in to buy their iPhone 3GS's. Not bad for a little more than 2 hours of sales. Three hours later, at 1215pPDT, that number had swollen to 647.
To say that Apple's iPhone 3GS is living up to its advanced billing is an understatement. Outside this flagship Apple store in San Francisco, the line has stretched a few hundred deep consistently for the last several hours. Apple even offered free coffee and bagels for those here.
So you gotta wonder whether Research in Motion's lighter than expected Blackberry sales and subscription sign-ups are a sign of sluggishness in the smart phone sector? Or whether this could be a sign that Apple's iPhone is starting to chip away at RIM's success in the marketplace.
