Good morning. Chances are, there won't be a massive amount of tech news today, as the SOPA/PIPA blackouts will preempt most companies from making any major announcements today. The last few hours of Tuesday were already filled with SOPA news, as more and more companies announced their support for the protests. Like what you read here? Sign up using the...

It's not every day that a major media tycoon like Rupert Murdoch takes to his bully pulpit on Twitter to accuse Google of streaming pirated videos. Rupert Murdoch did just that over the weekend, presenting us with a series of misguided and misinformed tweets. Google, of course, was not amused. Otherwise, the news was relatively quiet this weekend, though there...

Even though CES remains in full swing in Vegas, Google monopolized the attention of the tech news world on Tuesday with the announcement of its updated personalized search algorithm. The reactions so far have been relatively negative, as many have the impression that Google is just trying to push Google+ with this update. Google vehemently denies that it is...

As expected, the first day of CES brought a slew of news. Microsoft's keynote was mostly forgettable, except for the announcement of a launch date for the Kinect for PC (Feb. 1st). Other vendors made better use of their time in the spotlight, however. Google, however, managed to re-capture the limelight this morning by announcing its new, highly personalized...

Weekends tend to be rather slow when it comes to tech news, but thanks to the launch of Walter Isaacson's biography of Steve Jobs, even those sites that usually don't cover Apple news in detail kept pumping out stories as more and more details from the book leaked before today's release date. The book, in its various e-Book and hardcover editions currently dominates Amazon's sales charts, just as it dominated the tech news over the weekend. Having read about a quarter through the book by now, I have to say that it's definitely worth a read - not just for the insights into Jobs' life and thoughts, but also because it’s a fascinating history of Silicon Valley and the players that made it what it is today.
