  • Sweet! Is Sugar the future of publishing?

    The women-centric collection of sites is shaking up the web -- and traditional media.

    The state of affairs in publishing is beyond depressing. Unless, of course, by publishing you mean the shiny new online-only startups who are behaving as if it were boom times for journalism. An example is Sugar Publishing, the 3 1/2-year old blogging company that focuses on young women. Run by the husband-and-wife team Brian and Lisa Sugar, MORE

  • You've got blogs: ex-AOLers build sites for writers, documentarians

    New online platforms like True/Slant and SnagFilms are a home for original content. Can they succeed?

  • AOL's Tim Armstrong turns skeptics into believers

    If new AOL CEO Tim Armstrong keeps talking, the company just might reemerge Phoenix-like on the Internet landscape. At least that's what the results of audience polling showed at Fortune's Brainstorm Tech conference Thursday.

    Fortune's David Kirkpatrick opened the interview by asking whether AOL would slowly "run out of juice, remain profitable but not a significant industry force,  or return to health as a major Internet player." Using devices provided by MORE

  • Why Google may walk away from Yahoo deal

    By Scott Moritz

    The planned advertising partnership between Google (GOOG) and Yahoo (YHOO), which was devised during Microsoft's (MSFT) unsolicited bid for Yahoo, is headed for a federal antitrust challenge. And that could mean, according to one analyst, that Google could wind up walking away from the deal.

    Two days after the Association of National Advertisers sent a letter to the Justice Department opposing the Google-Yahoo ad pact, antitrust regulators hired high-powered MORE

  • Recount shows big protest vote against Yahoo CEO

    By Yi-Wyn Yen

    Yahoo (YHOO) on Tuesday disclosed that CEO Jerry Yang and other directors were re-elected last week to its board with far fewer votes than previously thought.

  • Cablevision considers a dividend and spin-off

    By Scott Moritz

    Cablevision's Dolan family is weighing its options again. But while the chilly credit market puts some boundaries on the scope of the Long Island cable company's options, some of the more likely moves include a dividend and a spinoff of its Rainbow Media unit, say analysts.

    "We arrive at the view that given the current state of the credit markets and $1.7 billion in maturities [Cablevision faces] next year, the MORE

  • Apple's new Hollywood deal: Death of the DVD?

    The news that Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes let slip in a conference call on Wednesday -- that from now on Warner Bros. movies would come out as video on demand the same day as the DVD -- turns out to be bigger than he let on.

    Apple on Thursday announced that not only would Warner Bros. titles be available for purchase on the iTunes store the same day and date MORE

  • Time Warner Cable braces for independence

    By Scott Moritz

    Time Warner Cable (TWC) posted strong numbers as the unit gets set to fly independent of parent Time Warner (TWX), but analysts see turbulence ahead as Verizon (VZ) enters the key New York market with a rival TV offering.

    The No.2 cable shop reversed a trend of losing basic subscribers by adding 55,000 net new customers in the first quarter. Even better, the company added 896,000 so-called revenue generating MORE

  • Verizon to hike TV prices

    By Scott Moritz, writer

    Seeing no signs that the slowing economy is crimping consumer spending, Verizon (VZ) plans to raise prices on its nascent TV service.

    The New York phone giant reported first quarter earnings that met Thomson Financial's analyst estimate but missed the Bloomberg consensus by a penny Monday. On a conference call following the release, the company blamed the loss of a large former MCI business customer for some of the profit weakness.
