    Ugly trainwreck for T-Mobile (DT) Sidekick users, with Microsoft-owned subsidiary Danger (MSFT) saying the likelihood of customers getting their data (contacts, calendars, etc.) back is "extremely low." Cloud computing is only as good as its proprietors' redundancies, which in this case weren't very good at all.

    The DoJ launches an investigation into whether IBM (IBM) is abusing its monopoly of the mainframe computer market. Trade group Computer and Communications Industry Association - backed by IBM rivals like Microsoft (MSFT) and Oracle (ORCL) - contends IBM stymied competition in the mainframe market and blocked competitors and potential partners from licensing its software.

    CrunchGear says Dell's (DELL -0.9%) China-only Android (GOOG) phone, the Mini 3i, is coming to the U.S., likely with an upgrade. This will be Dell's first smartphone since the ill-fated Axim in 2007, and is something of an attack on the Windows Mobile (MSFT) architecture.

Google (GOOG) rose impressively to 71.08%, while Yahoo (YHOO) fell to 16.38% from 16.96%.
