Nasdaq continues to fall

The drop followed more Microsoft losses. The company fell 5 per cent in the morning after cautious analyst commentary on its growth. Another big loser was Compuware, which dropped 37 per cent amid disappointment over its earnings, losing $US7.50, to $12.56.

Microsoft and Compuware were the two most actively traded stocks on the Nasdaq in morning trading, but they weren't the only tech issues to lose ground. Cisco Systems lost 5 per cent to $66.13. Sun Microsystems added to recent losses with an additional 6 per cent drop to $82.88. IBM was down 4 per cent at midday to $114.31, and Intel lost almost 3 per cent to $127.19.

Yahoo was a rare exception in the tech sector, reversing a recent downslide with a 5 per cent gain to $140 at midday. But internet peers Amazon.com and Inktomi dropped 4 per cent each, to $60.63 and $129.50, respectively. Internet Capital Group also lost 10 per cent to $51.75.

But the Dow retained its confident posture in morning training. Building on recent gains, it was up 121.54 at midday, to 11408.62. Coca-Cola was among its big winners, up nearly 5 per cent to $49.38. Wal-Mart was up 1.5 per cent to $64.31.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
