Get Ready for a Post-Earnings Surge for NVIDIA

Graphics chip company, NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA), reported first-quarter earnings last Friday. And although revenue of $924.9 million represents a 4% decline from the same quarter last year, it beat the consensus estimate of $915.7 million.

Batteries Not Included: Powering Electronics Through Your Eyes

Last month I discussed how Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) plans to change the way we interact with our digital lives with its Project Glass initiative.

VIDEO: Autodesk’s 3-D Printing App Targets the Average Consumer

If there’s one feature that was added to the iPad that makes zero sense to me, it’s the camera. Not the front-facing camera, mind you.

Avita Medical: A Solid Biomedical Play

Here’s a quick reminder of how it works… Essentially, the process starts with a doctor removing a small skin biopsy from a patient. The...

Investors Ignore EA Earnings Beat

Looks like “The Force” was certainly with Electronic Arts (Nasdaq: EA) yesterday – at least for a short time. The company reported stronger-than-expected results. Earnings per share came in at $0.17 on revenue of $977 million, compared to the consensus estimate of $0.16 earnings per share and $960 million in sales. The positive sales are...

AT&T Aims to Set Your House on Autopilot

Since I’m still undergoing the stressful journey that is house hunting, I suppose I have home-based technology on the brain. At this time last month, I discussed the Nest thermostat’s ability to cut energy costs by learning your heating and cooling schedules and putting the process on autopilot. And users could save even more cash...
