  • SEC to investigate false Steve Jobs heart attack claim

    Whoever made that false Steve-Jobs-had-a-heart-attack claim is going to be in a lot of trouble now that the SEC is getting involved. The independent agency is looking to see if the false report was done maliciously. That is to say, it’s trying to figure out whether or not the person who posted the claim in order to profit from the resulting drop in stock price. (Apple’s stock went… Read More

  • Apple stock still worth buying, says Citi and Goldman Sachs

    Yes, we’ll soon all be at each other’s throats fighting over cans of soup, but Apple? It’s fine, despite that drop earlier in the week. That’s what Citi and Goldman Sachs say, at least. Those two haven’t failed yet, so we’d do well to hang on their every word. Both Citi and Goldman Sachs kept a “buy” rating on Apple stock, despite the fact that… Read More

  • Yes! I was right about betting on AMD and NVIDIA stock


    Oh ye of little faith! Last month I posted about how I thought AMD and NVIDIA stocks were undervalued but the companies themselves were thriving. Buy, buy, buy, I said — to general disapproval. It’s not customary of course to give stock tips on CrunchGear, and to be honest I wouldn’t trust myself to invest a roll of quarters, but it looks like my amateur day-trading… Read More

  • Both AMD and NVIDIA's stocks are falling like rocks – buy!


    Pretty soon both of these suckers are going to bottom out, and since there’s really no other players in the consumer video card game, at least one of them is going to bounce back. NVIDIA is at around $11, down from almost $25 a couple months ago, and AMD has been steadily declining for a long time and is on its way to becoming a penny stock. Have a little extra cash? There’s… Read More

  • Palms shares jump on hot new "buy" rating by JPMorgan; Centro selling very well for Sprint

    [photopress:070928_Centro.jpg,full,center] I’ve been talking quite a bit about how much I love the Centro smartphones by Palm, and why I think it’s going to be a sleeper hit, and now someone finally agrees with me. That someone is JPMorgan, who upgraded Palm’s stock to “buy” on the strength of the Centro and it’s impending launch on AT&T sometime… Read More

  • Apple to produce 'cheaper, innovative iPods with Wi-Fi and multi-touch technology' soon?

    Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster (who used to work with my dad, went to the same high school as me, and is or was dating my friend Ross’ sister) thinks that Apple might put out some newer, cheaper iPod touch-like devices. “We believe that the iPod touch is the first of several Internet-connected iPods that Apple is currently developing.

The alarm raised by Hackintosh member XianLi that Apple was sending out your International Mobile Equipment Identity with every outgoing transmission turns out to have been nothing but the most base alarmism. Sure, there are graphs and numbers to support his theory, but some intrepid investigator at Heise.de broke… Read More
