Strategic investors are showing interest in BlackBerry; SEC clears Apple's tax strategy.

Cisco, Google and SAP are all showing interest in pieces of BlackBerry, according to a report. Any such transaction would be separate from the $4.7 billion preliminary deal struck with Fairfax Financial Holdings to take the company private.

In addition, Apple's reputation is back intact, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission. The SEC closed the books on its review of how the company handled its overseas cash and tax policies.

TechCrunch reporter Colleen Taylor said there's resentment against the tech sector and that "Apple's being cleared sets a good precedent for the industry."
