    While some see Google (GOOG) as a global powerhouse whose stock is "undervalued," Gary Kaminski sees "stock purgatory" for a "stagnant" company. "Mature growth stocks need a second stage of accelerated revenue to stir investor excitement," he says, and Google hasn't found it.

    Steve Jobs' defense of the iPhone 4 (AAPL) ignites a debate about whether competing smartphones are equally prone to reception problems. RIM (RIMM) and Motorola (MOT) say they have deliberately avoided locating antennas on the phone's edge. HTC and Samsung are the latest to issue sharp rebukes, saying reception problems aren't common on their smartphones.

    Google (GOOG) "remains one of the best plays on the continued growth of web content and commerce," says Barron's Eric Savitz. "Concerns seem well-reflected in the stock; through Thursday, Google was down about 20% this year. For buy-and-holders, this looks like a nice entry point." (GOOG's Q2 earnings)

    Google's (GOOG -0.2%) Q2 earnings likely will come in under Street estimates, Stifel Nicolaus' Jordan Rohan tells CNBC, but he is a long-term buyer. "Google continues to hire and invest in things like mobile... which is having a real impact and is creating a real asset value but isn’t creating a lot of revenue for Google today."

    Shareholders looking to avoid a repeat of Google's (GOOG) 7.6% selloff following its last earnings report may want to consider a short-term position in TYP, Direxion's Daily Tech Bear 3x ETF. Despite GOOG comprising just 6.25% of TYP's portfolio, the leveraged inverse ETF climbed 3.5% on GOOG's Q1 earnings disappointment.

    Microsoft (MSFT +2%) is paying developers to create apps for its Windows Phone 7 as it tries to play catch-up with rival products from Apple (AAPL) and Google (GOOG +1%). Compensation ranges from free tools and test handsets to money for development/marketing and revenue guarantees.

    AdMob chief (and now VP of mobile ads for acquirer Google (GOOG)) Omar Hamoui thinks Apple (AAPL) has "a really interesting take" on ads with its iAd mobile ad platform, and that bringing in new advertisers is good for all: "It's not a zero-sum game." Of course, the love could still be that Apple's moves were vital to taking antitrust heat off Google.

    Apple's (AAPL) iPhone 4 is the king of the smartphones, for the moment at least. But the momentum is moving towards Android (GOOG), writes Barron's, and a cloud-based music platform may be Android's golden opportunity to pull ahead of its rival.
