Is Cupid's day the date for the long-awaited launch of an iPhone for Verizon?
Here's how these rumors get started. Someone tipped off Peter Burrows at Bloomberg Businessweek that Apple (AAPL) was waiting until after next week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to launch an iPhone for Verizon (VZ).

The poorly-reviewed TV platform is going to miss its coming out party at CES.
According to the New York Times, Google (GOOG) has massively cut back its GoogleTV product's planned releases from CES, which is to take place from January 6-9.

LAS VEGAS - Two big takeaways from Sony's press event at the Consumer Electronics Show:
One, Sony (SNE) is doubling down on 3-D. Two, it's getting serious about the web and open standards. The media and electronics company made both priorities clear in a few ways.
For 3-D, Sony announced several components designed to bring a version of the movie experience into the home. The equipment alone won't do it, though; in an MOREJon Fortt - Jan 7, 2010 6:02 AM ET
LAS VEGAS - When he took the stage to deliver the opening keynote for the Consumer Electronics Show, Steve Ballmer took a novel approach to the hype Apple and Google have generated in the mobile space:
He sidestepped it.
Instead of talking much about his own ambitions in smartphones and tablets, the two emerging platforms that are generating plenty of buzz at the annual gadgetfest, the Microsoft (MSFT) CEO focused on more MOREJon Fortt - Jan 7, 2010 6:00 AM ET
