  • As you might expect, my earlier post calling on Steve Jobs to announce a shareholder buyback at tomorrow's Apple spacer annual shareholder meeting, generated quite a bit of reader reaction. As we prepare to cover the meeting, I'm curious how many of you plan to attend...

    Dell posted a lower-than-expected quarterly profit and cautioned that customers may rein in spending, sending its shares lower in extended trading.

  • Talk about a confusing report: Dell reports 31 cents a share on $15.99 billion in revenue and at first blush the news seemed almost devastating. The conventional wisdom going into the report was that expectations had been lowered so significantly that Dell should have no trouble at all beating them.

    It's clear that Michael Dell's honeymoon period is over, and that investors are looking for tangible results from the turnaround strategy he has implemented since returning to his namesake company as CEO. The question though is whether this is merely a dead-cat bounce, or whether Dell is truly beginning to turn things around.

    The European Union stepped up to level the biggest single fine against a company when it slapped Microsoft with a $1.35 billion penalty for anti-trust and anti-competitive behavior, and for not complying with earlier rulings to curb these kinds of practices.

  • Another day, another big drop in Google shares. Another day, and more head-scratching for Apple shareholders. For Google, it's getting ugly. Even a big, broad Wall Street rally couldn't help these shares, ceding another 4 percent on Monday with the slide continuing pre-market today.

  • Electronic Arts is desperate; and desperate times call for desperate measures. Look no further than the company's multiple bids for Take-Two Interactive, a company with such a checkered financial past, pandering to the lowest common denominator of entertainment, but that apparently commands a 64 percent premium that in Take-Two's estimation still isn't enough.
