Tech Teardown: Dec. 9, 2013

In this episode of Tech Teardown, Erin Kennedy discusses the latest developments in the tech sector with Evan Niu, CFA, our tech and telecom bureau chief.

  • Micron's stock has had a heck of a run this year, but the memory industry is a tricky one to navigate.
  • Microsoft is now targeting Chromebooks for ridicule, but the company could be missing out on an emerging computing trend -- again.
  • Good news for Apple investors: There will definitely be enough iPhones to go around this holiday quarter.
  • Google might have a set-top box in the works, but that's not necessarily a positive for Google investors: Big G has already tried and failed before in this category.
