Posts on handset makers, carriers and Oracle

I wrote a number of earnings stories during this period on AT&T, Microsoft, Motorola and Sprint.

But I also got a couple of stories out of covering a Sprint developers' conference in Santa Clara:

Sprint touts 4G possibilities at developer conference
Internet-ready Ford F-150 at Sprint conference

Sprint removes barriers to Google Voice, Skype, Vonage

I also followed the continuing opposition to the Oracle acquisition of Sun when a deal critic came to Silicon Valley from Europe.

I ended the week receiving my demo of the Samsung Moment from Sprint, which I played with over the weekend and posted my review of Nov. 1, the day it went on sale:

A couple of days I posted two stories in one day, earning me the number 1 position as top San Jose Examiner for having the most page views.

Persuasive Marketing

I've been blogging the last few months for Persuasive Marketing, a blog site from the firm Attain Marketing, based in North Carolina. Lorraine Kauffman-Hall, who once worked PR for a tech company I covered in Silicon Valley, is now with Attain and asked me to write about PR from the media's perspective. Here are some of the posts:
