10 last-minute Valentine
10 last-minute Valentine's Day gifts you can still get in time for next Tuesday

Let's be honest for a moment if we can: no one really wants flowers on Valentine's Day. Don't be boring this year, get that special someone a gift that she'll never forget. Want to get her a stuffed teddy bear? Fine, but make it one she'll always remember, like a gigantic 5-foot plush teddy . Is chocolate the way to her heart? Don't go for a boring old heart-shaped box, get her a gallon of Ghirardelli chocolate or a bunch of giant Hershey Kisses instead. It also doesn't hurt to go the less conventional route. A Kindle eBook reader or a Fire Tablet would make a fantastic gift. Or, if you want to go the extra mile, upgrade her TV with an affordable 50-inch Roku TV and you'll score some...

Apple poaches Amazon
Apple poaches Amazon's Fire TV boss to lead Apple TV business

The word "best" is never really an absolute in consumer tech since opinions, needs and wants vary so dramatically. When that word is tossed around to describe streaming media devices, it seems to be used to describe Amazon's Fire TV devices more often than not. Streaming entertainment solutions like the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick are wildly popular options thanks largely to their ease of use, low cost and a wide range of functionality. In fact, they're so popular that Amazon can't even keep them in stock right now - new orders of either model won't ship until February 23rd. If you want a Fire TV today, your only option is the  Amazon Fire TV Gaming Edition , which bumps up the price from...

Many teens use e-cigarettes for 'dripping' liquid nicotine

By Lisa Rapaport (Reuters Health) - One in four teens who use electronic cigarettes have tried "dripping" liquid nicotine directly onto the heating coils on the devices to get thicker clouds of vapor, a new study suggests. Big U.S. tobacco companies are all developing e-cigarettes, battery-powered gadgets with a heating element that turns liquid nicotine and flavorings into a cloud of vapor that users inhale. For the past decade, public health experts have debated whether the gadgets might help with smoking cessation or at least be a safer alternative to traditional combustible cigarettes, or whether "vaping" e-cigarettes or vape pens might lure a new generation into nicotine addiction.

BlackBerry Ltd has signed a hardware licensing agreement covering India and nearby countries, the Canadian company said on Monday, filling in the last markets where a third-party will manufacture its once-ubiquitous devices as it turns fully to software. The Waterloo, Ontario-based company said the long-term licensing deal with Optiemus Infracom Ltd covers India, one of BlackBerry's biggest handset markets, as well as Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh. The company did not provide financial terms of the deal, but one analyst estimates that BlackBerry is collecting $1 per handset from around 7 million third-party sales a quarter.

Apple delivers monster earnings as iPhone sales get back on track
Apple delivers monster earnings as iPhone sales get back on track

Apple just posted its earnings report for the December quarter and the company appears to be back on track. Revenue wise, Apple posted $78.4 billion in revenue, a quarterly profit of $17.9 billion and EPS of $3.36. As a point of comparison, Apple during the same quarter a year-ago posted revenue of $75.9 billion and EPS of $3.28. Funny enough, for all the armchair pundits and professional analysts who have been so eager to proclaim Apple's demise, Apple last quarter set a new quarterly record for both revenue and EPS. Incidentally, analysts were anticipating Apple to deliver revenue of $77.4 billion and EPS of $3.23. In other words, Apple completely smashed analyst expectations this past...

Day trader is betting his last $250,000 that Apple shares will crash today

One of the oldest adages about investing is that you can't time the market. Sure, you can do your best to try, but if you're hoping to accumulate a vast amount of wealth a'la Warren Buffet, you might want to try investing for the long-term instead of gambling your money away with multiple trades a week. Still, that sound piece of advice has never stopped enterprising folks from trying to strike it rich. And with Apple slated to post its earnings later today, one day-trader who frequents the WallStreetBets subreddit -- where bold and crazy bets are the norm -- has decided to risk everything on the prospect of Apple shares dipping following its earnings report. After nearly squandering $2.5...
