  • Google earnings, the currency exchange factor

    Will external factors like foreign currency markets play into Google's earnings or have they taken appropriate measures to counteract them?

    Investors are putting up their GOOG predictions this week ahead of Google's earnings call.  Recent updates seem to be centered around Google's decision to stop selling the Nexus One on its site and the recent sharp increase in U.S. Dollar valuation against foreign currencies. Google brings in a significant majority of its revenues from MORE

  • JP Morgan lowers GOOG ahead of Q2 earnings

    Analyst reduces price target to $566 from $639 on lowered estimates.

    JP Morgan's Imran Khan sent a note out ahead of Google's (GOOG) Q2 financials stating that they were dropping their price targets on Google significantly, from $639 to $566.  The $73 drop is largely due to changes in international currency rates and the discontinuation of the Nexus One, according to the report.

  • How bad is the iPhone 4's signal loss?

    Pretty bad, say engineers who have measured the effect of the "death grip." But it's not fatal.

    It's been nearly a week since Steve Jobs famously told a new iPhone owner with reception issues to "stay tuned," but Apple (AAPL) still hasn't solved the new device's Death Grip problem -- its tendency to lose signal strength rapidly when gripped across the gap on the left-hand corner where its two external MORE

  • Sprint dumps Nexus One for 4G EVO

    Second dumping in as many months for the Nexus One shouldn't be seen as a bad sign for Google's phones.

    If you are like me, you are drooling over the specs on the Sprint EVO 4G Android phone. It either meets or exceeds every spec of Google's Nexus One and yet was scheduled to be sold at around the same price at about the same time on the same network, Sprint MORE

  • Hack allows first generation handsets to upgrade to Android 2.1

    The hack proves that Android 2.1 can work on first generation Android phones like the T-Mobile G1.

    Called Cyanogen, the upgrade is not for the feint of heart and has the very real potential of bricking your phone.  However, if successful, HTC Dream, Magic and Sapphire (T-Mobile G1 and myTouch 3G) users could have most of the features of the Nexus One on older, slower Android phones.

    What's NOT included that MORE

  • Meet the Google iPad

    No matter what sleek device Apple designs, it's Google that will win the data war.

    By Jeff Jarvis, contributor

    Apple and Google, until recently friends and allies, are now fighting for the future of the Internet. They won't occupy the same territory exactly: Apple will still design hardware; Google will still organize information and sell advertising. They have been complementary. But now they are competing to be our constant companion.

    The two giants MORE
