Analysts: TV prices to take a dip
Prices for flat-panel TVs are expected to slide this holiday season. Demand is tailing off, creating an oversupply of sets. A 32-inch set could drop to $350. Would you buy at these prices? Hit my Message Board.

Will Apple’s growth rate plateau?
Last quarter, Apple accounted for about 10 percent of U.S. computer sales. This could change. Apple doesn’t have a low-priced netbook. Need an inexpensive laptop? Check my buying guide.

YouTube, PBS roll out voting channel
YouTube and PBS want voters to record their experiences on election day. They want videos of the energy and excitement, along with glitches. The best videos will be aired on PBS.

Prolonged cell use can cause rash
Doctors are warning about rashes caused by cell phones. Many cell phones use nickel on their surfaces. Nickel is a common cause of allergic reactions.

Internet crime rising steadily
