Bulls have become addicted to the stock. That's a good thing. For now.
If Apple (AAPL) news flies under the radar, does that mean it never happened?
Apple pulled an ad campaign that never should have seen the light of day in the first place, yet it barely made headlines.
Credit gigaom as one of the few outlets to report the news: Apple not only pulled its horrific Genius Bar-focused advertising run from television, the company removed it from its Web site and YouTube channel. Many had criticized the ads for showing customers in an unflattering light.
The company will tie in its new badge with upcoming releases of Windows 8, Office and phone software.
Microsoft (MSFT) unveiled its first new logo in 25 years on Thursday as it looks to unify its branding ahead of a clutch of new product releases this year.
The world's largest software company is introducing a dash of color in its first logo redesign since 1987, using a new multi-colored square next to a plain rendering of its name, replacing its well-worn italic style logo. (Microsoft owns and publishes TechBiz, an MSN Money site.)

Can you believe it's been about a year since streaming movie giant Netflix (NFLX) made a pair of self-destructive decisions?
First it moved to hike prices when its customers were struggling to make ends meet just to pay for basic household necessities. Then it turned around and announced plans to split its popular DVD delivery service from its streaming business -- a decision it later nixed.

As automakers begin to equip cars with technologies that take control from the driver, it's not unrealistic to expect self-driving cars to hit the market within the next decade. The state of Nevada recently granted Google (GOOG) a license to test its self-driving car on public streets. This week, the Department of Transportation will kick off a program to pilot-test 2,800 connected vehicles in Ann Arbor with communication devices that allow them to talk to each other and avert accidents on their own. A recent report by The Center for Automotive Research and KPMG concludes that self-driving cars for consumers are inevitable – it only depends on how quickly the country can adopt the technology and infrastructure.
