And at the time, virtually all of AMD's strategic board partners were at the ready with products based... Read more...

Apple is a funny beast. We say "beast" because it's hard to deny that this company is ripping through the tech world like no other that we've seen in the last decade. Our television programs are laden with Apple ads poking fun at Windows and seducing you into buying yet another iPod, and every quarterly earnings report is filled with optimism.... Read more...
Apple prides itself on providing operating systems that "just work," though some are saying OS X 10.6 (its latest version) "just works against you." Too harsh? Maybe, but there's no denying that the latest bug is one that's simply too large to stay quiet about. For years, OS X was as stable a consumer OS as the world... Read more...
Let's face it--Apple's App Store is big business. Really big. And if you paid any attention to the fact that Apple saw its 1.5 billionth (yes, with a "B") app downloaded back in July, you'd know that things still weren't even close to slowing down. But have you ever stopped to think about just how much cash is being... Read more...

Shortly before most of America hits the pause... Read more...
Apple never has been a company to cater to the lower-end. For whatever reason, it just never has had to compete on price alone. For decades, the company has made clear that the price premium associated with its products was due to the unique design and ingenuity. That said, there's hardly ever been a better time for Apple to consider dipping... Read more...
Really, Microsoft? Has it come to this? During last night's highly watched NCAA Men's Basketball tournament, Microsoft decided to buy pretty much every single ad slot from the first tip to the final basket in order to grab Apple by the collar, slap it around a time or two and then spit on it as it walked away. We've seen the Mac vs. PC ads... Read more...
