  1. There's messy. Then there's Groupon messy.

    There's no way around it. From an investor standpoint, the financial performance Groupon delivered in its most recent earnings report is a disaster. But Groupon is keeping its chin up, presenting a game face to investors as if to say: Hey, growth in our market can get messy. Like, you know, the way fast-growing startups can be messy.

  2. Facebook won't die. And it won't own the Web. It'll just be... mediocre

    The good news about Facebook is that it is, once again, destined for great things. Which is unfortunate. Because the bad news about Facebook is that it's dying.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
