  • It started with a note from Mike Abramsky at RBC Capital, now calling for a "breakout" fiscal fourth quarter because of iPhone. He's estimating Apple will sell 14 million iPhones in 2008, thanks to last week's new 3G version.

  • Steve Jobs

    When Jobs did arrive for my interview, I, like many of you, was immediately struck by his appearance. He was smiley, cordial, forthcoming, engaged with his usual piercing eye-contact. Let's face it, he's a terrific interview.

  • iPhone 3G

    Yesterday, they were all over the map: plunging, recovering, plunging, settling the day with a mild loss even in the face of what could be one of the most exciting platforms—not products, but platforms—this company has ever unveiled.

  • Here are my video hits today from the Apple spacer WWDC and the iPhone re-launch. hr<!-- -->

  • IPhone 3G

    The posts from today's live blogging of the Apple World Wide Developers Conference and launch of the new generation iPhone from the Moscone West building in San Francisco, California.

  • iPhone Redux

    I arrived here at Moscone West in San Francisco a little before 5 am PDT and the line of Apple faithful stretched around the block. Some of these folks got here before midnight!

  • Yahoo!'s headquarters in California.

    We're learning from those court documents unsealed in Delaware that Yahoo was working on a way to thwart Microsoft's offers. Forget "poison pills." This was like a bullet to the head.

  • What a wild day for Intel: Investors awoke to read a Financial Times Germany article claiming that the European Commission was on the verge of finding Intel guilty of anti-competitive behavior and ready to levy a staggering $4.1 billion fine against the world's largest chipmaker.

  • Cisco Systems

    Cisco Systems Chief Executive John Chambers said Wednesday the company is "extremely comfortable" with its long-term growth target and expects the economy to start recovering toward the end of the year.

  • All Things Digital

    Gates and Ballmer started with a trip down memory lane, talking about one of the tech industry's most enduring and successful relationships, stretching back 28 years. And it was an opportunity Ballmer almost missed out, thanks to the subtle recruitment strategy by Gates.

  • I'm with my colleague Melissa Francis at this week's All Things D conference in Carlsbad, Calif., and we'll be rounding up all our video reports here on this page. You can check out more from the conference on the 'All Things D' Web site link listed below.

  • Microsoft

    Microsoft plans to give users of the next version of its Windows operating system touch screen controls as one option for controlling the software, its top executives said on Tuesday.

  • Playing Guitar Hero

    These titles are working their magic for new songs as well, and that could mean a critically important new distribution method for established bands, as well as new bands seeking a way to end run traditional music labels, trying to reach their fans directly.

    It wasn't too long ago that Apple Inc. was out of favor on Wall Street, the stock languishing, the outlook nebulous, the bears drooling at the raise-'em-up-tear-'em-down prospects of one of the most compelling companies in all of technology.

  • It's a double-dose of odd news Thursday night from Yahoo: losing board member Ed Kozel, one of two true outside tech experts on the company's board of directors; and word that the company is delaying its annual shareholders meeting.

  • Google Headquarters

    At a time when Microsoft and Yahoo publicly stumble about, trying to come up with some way to take on Google's search juggernaut, we now get more market research data showing Google continues to gobble up market share. And it's the kind of news that neither Microsoft nor Yahoo can afford to hear.

  • Microsoft is not looking to bid to buy all of Yahoo but is in talks about other types of deals with the U.S. No. 2 search engine, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said on Wednesday.

  • Hewlett-Packard's headquarters in Palo Alto, California.

    Talk about a busy couple of days for HP: yesterday, news begins trickling out that a $13 billion deal between HP and Electronic Data Systems. Shares are halted, speculation begins, a statement from HP confirms the talks, the deal is announced this morning, investors wonder whether IBM will face competition in its bread-and-butter business, and oh yeah, HP also pre-releases earnings.

  • HP Headquarters

    There's been lots of speculation about why HP is willing to shell out nearly $14 billion for EDS when that company's shares have flat-lined recently. Why spend a 30 percent premium on an also-ran player in services and technology outsourcing?

    It's here! Or almost here. It's the new Research in Motion BlackBerry 9000 Bold, and what a bold step this is. It's been a year since RIM released an update, and during that time, just about every spotlight has turned to the iPhone from Apple with so many experts ceding the market to the upstart touch-screen wonder.
