All the latest news and rumors surrounding Apple, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pandora.

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.

  • Apple puts its money where it's mouth is. Actions speak louder than words, and $14 billion goes a long way.
  • Apple has always played it small when it comes to acquisitions. Is Apple preparing to open up its wallet when the time is right?
  • Twitter beat expectations on the top and bottom lines in its earnings report this week, but the market was looking at something entirely different.
  • Why weak guidance now for LinkedIn may be well worth it in the long run.
  • Online music streaming service Pandora was yet another tech stock to get crushed after earnings, despite reporting a pretty good quarter. Why did investors walk away?
