  • HD DVD's "Unofficial" Official Death--Blu-ray Lives Friday, 15 Feb 2008 | 11:16 AM ET

    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.

    Motorola, Inc.

    It is a stunning move by the pioneering name in mobile phones and the best data yet about just how deep the company's problems run: Motorola announced late Thursday that it is seeking alternatives for its handset business that likely will mean a sell-off of the division.

  • When Microsoft's earnings came out yesterday, I had to do a double-take because it was hard for me to process just how strong these numbers truly were. I knew the company was poised for a strong quarter, but it was the breadth of its success, and optimistic guidance that took me, and so many investors, by surprise.

NPD reports tonight a record $17.94 billion was spent on non-PC game hardware, software and accessories; a staggering 43 percent better than 2006.

  • Hey, Wall St.: Don't Dump Intel! Wednesday, 16 Jan 2008 | 12:54 PM ET

    Ouch. There's really no other way to summarize Intel's earnings, and there's little question that Intel's softness took Wall Street by surprise. Just look at the shellacking these shares are taking today. But is the selloff warranted, or -- like so many other moves to the downside in recent weeks among the top names in tech -- is the Intel drubbing overdone?

    There are two stories I'm looking forward to investigating as the crowds hit the floor Monday. First, there's the state of the struggle between Toshiba, with its HD DVD high-def disc format, and Sony's rival Blu-ray format.

    This past year was a busy one for tech, including Apple's iPhone release; Halo 3; Xbox vs. Wii vs. PlayStation; HD-DVD vs. Blu-ray: Google's new mobile strategy; Intel's surge at AMD's expense; all things wireless; Oracle and Microsoft's blockbuster earnings; Yahoo's CEO shakeup; VMWare's IPO; the ongoing shake-up at Dell; and of course my favorite: Star Wars celebrating its 30th anniversary.

    Something strange is developing around the Nintendo Wii phenomenon and it's showing capitalism at its finest: I was skeptical about a derivatives market in the Wii actually existing, but now I have confirmation that one does exist.

  • Gadgets Galore Fuel 'Black Friday: Part II' Friday, 21 Dec 2007 | 10:58 AM ET

    Black Friday has come and gone, but you might want to call today Black Friday: Part II as we usher in the last weekend before Christmas. I'm inside a Best Buy in the heart of Silicon Valley, where business has been more than brisk these last few weeks...

  • Chinese "Lead Scare" Not Real Reason for Slow Toy Sales Thursday, 20 Dec 2007 | 3:43 PM ET
    Parents shop in the toy aisle at a Target store, Kingston, Massachusetts

    I'd like to deconstruct the myth that the China lead-contaminated is responsible for the drop off in toy sales this year. Lead-contamination worries or not, parents are still buying toys and kids are still playing with them this season.
