Eric Bleeker believes these are the top three tech stories of the week:
1. Facebook (NASDAQ: FB ) redesigns its newsfeed to keep advertisements fresh. Facebook is putting adverts in the body of the newsfeed instead of in a banner to the side of the page. This should keep advertising revenue going.
2. Google (NASDAQ: GOOG ) surpasses Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL ) for institutional ownership. Google flies while Apple dries. Analysts are going gaga over Google, and hedge funds and mutual funds now own more Google than Apple.
3. BlackBerry's (NASDAQ: BBRY ) new smartphone to launch in the U.S. on March 22. Blackberry has launched its newest smartphone in a variety of other markets with differing results. Will the BB10 rescue Blackberry from oblivion in the U.S. market? The answer will begin to be known later this month.
