apple-beats-music
There was considerable fascination over Apple's decision to buy Beats Electronics in a multibillion-dollar deal earlier this year, and much of it centered on the strength of the Beats brand. Now it appears that Apple may not be that enamored of the name. Rumors are circulating that it may rebrand the Beats Music streaming service. There's even a chance it will shut it down. [More...]

Blackberry Passport
BlackBerry is about to present its Passport to the business world -- a smartphone that costs less than rivals, while offering more screen real estate and a physical keyboard. The only hitch, in the words of tech analyst Roger Entner, is that "oh my god, this is ugly." Well, "pretty is as pretty does," BlackBerry might fire back. It's clearly going for functionality, not sex appeal. [More...]

eBay users should be on high alert for phishing scams designed to rob them of their credentials. eBay reportedly is riddled with scam listings that redirect shoppers to fake log-in sites.

iphone-6-iphone-6-plus
Apple enjoyed a spectacular opening weekend of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales, and if it can just keep up with demand, it's not likely there will be a slowdown any time soon. "This is not just a weekend sales story -- this is a multiproduct, multiyear growth story," suggested tech analyst Trip Chowdhry. "Innovation is back at Apple after three years of pause, and we are entering a new era." [More...]

home-depot
Home Depot has uttered the warning to its customers that every retailer must dread: Carefully check your credit card transactions. The theft of payment data that lasted for at least five months may have affected up to 56 million customers, making the Home Depot breach potentially worse than the one that devastated Target last year. Company officials are now scrambling to control the damage. [More...]

Larry Ellison is handing over Oracle's CEO reins to a pair of successors, but whether Safra Catz and Mark Hurd will pull them in the same direction is doubtful. Hurd is the wild card, suggested former Oracle exec Jeff Seabloom. "Safra is trusted and really, really gets it," he said, while "Mark has a history of 'tension' with sales teams ... . No secret -- he sometimes is a lightning rod." [More...]

News Corp. and Google have lashed out at each other as the EU reconsiders the terms of its proposed antitrust settlement with the latter.
