  1. Why I'm rooting for Michael Dell

    Michael Dell has done it! Defying skeptics, he arranged a deal for Dell Inc. to go private, making the bold moves necessary to return the company he founded to its former glory. Or as close as it can get.

  2. Is the iPhone becoming the fabled Facebook phone?

    Will the world ever see a Facebook phone? In the sense of a device designed and branded by Facebook, probably not. The idea has been around for several years and has been losing steam lately. The idea of Facebook selling phones was never a very good one, and the prototypes were not very compelling.

  3. Yahoo's new sense of caution is welcome

    Under some of Yahoo's previous CEO's, the quarterly conference calls discussing financial earnings used to involve a lot of encouraging spin. The ever-elusive turnaround was right around the corner. The company's nth makeover was sure to revive the site's appeal. Defections of key staff was balanced by die-hard employees who bled purple. And so on.

  4. Why going private won't save Dell

    Desperate times, they say, call for desperate measures. And a corollary to that rule is that desperate companies are sometimes driven to make desperate moves. That seems to be the case with Dell this week, as reports emerge that the company is considering a leveraged buyout on a large scale rare in the tech industry. Such a move may end up swapping one set of complications for another, while doing little to solve the deeper problems facing the company.

  5. The Web in 2013: Already old, or forever young?

    New Year's Day has long been one of my favorite holidays. It caps a week of year-in-review stories that underscores how ghastly the past year has been – fiscal cliffs, mass shootings, super storms – and then for a few glorious minutes you're in a crowd of ecstatic people screaming, embracing, giddy again about the possibility, however sketchy, that great things are about to happen.

  6. I admire Amazon. I just don't shop there anymore.

    In one of the year's least surprising news developments, Amazon enjoyed yet another banner holiday season – the busiest one ever! And for the first time I wasn't a part of the online throngs of shoppers crowding to its site.

  7. Just what Microsoft didn't need: An awkward Windows 8 launch

    The warning signs started to appear on Black Friday. A YouTube video comparing a Apple Store with an Microsoft Store on the most crazed shopping day of the year showed the former jam-packed, the latter sparsely populated with quiet shoppers. It dramatized Microsoft's worst fear – that the company's big bets on bold new products like Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and the Surface tablet weren't resonating early on with consumers. Not like Apple's products.

  8. Hold the conspiracy theories: The real reason why Apple is slumping

    For a company at the peak of its game, Apple sure had a dismal week. The stock slumped 9 percent without any negative news, and in the midst of what could be its strongest quarter ever.
