  • Yahoo's (YHOO) latest home page revamp, currently in trial mode, clearly has mobile in mind. A set of Windows 8-like photo tiles take up plenty of screen real estate, and Yahoo compensates by cutting down on icons, text links, and display ad modules. A previous test for Yahoo's home page, which gets 4.4B page views/month, involved a news feed that infinitely scrolls (much like Twitter). Separately, Yahoo disclosed in its Q3 10-Q it has bought back $212M in shares thus far in Q4, after buying $190M in Q3. [View news story]

  • Market recap: After yesterday's carnage, stocks slid again as fear builds that the fiscal cliff will hurt equities as it hurts the economy, and worries over meager revenue and profit growth as earnings season wraps up. Gold rose to $1,726/oz. as a safe-haven bid. Apple fell 3.7% and has now dropped 22% in less than two months. NYSE decliners led advancers three to one. [View news story]

  • Shares of Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR +11.6%) are on watch heading into the release of quarterly earnings for Starbucks after the bell. Today's rally is being attributed to shorts lightening their position in front of the report, although some bulls are holding out hope the SBUX numbers will show the single-serve pie is large enough for all the players to carve off a healthy slice. [View news story]

  • Netflix (NFLX +13.4%) resumes trading after a halt to reach as high as $84.50 before tripping up circuit breakers once again. All the excitement is tied to a 13D filed by Carl Icahn showing a 9.98% stake in Netflix and saying the company holds "significant strategic value due its dominant market position and global growth prospects". Now the question is if Icahn still sees shares as undervalued now that they have run up a hefty gain lickety-split. [View news story]

  • We're likely to see higher prices at the pump soon, in response to a likely drawdown in refining capacity stemming from Hurricane Sandy. Gas futures have already rallied 5% off their lows last Wednesday in response to fears of shortages, as an estimated 330K barrels a day of refining capacity could be taken off-line, says Tradition Energy's Addison Armstrong. This is an issue of an “already tight supply situation being compounded by the shut-in.” [View news story]

  • Microsoft (MSFT) officially launches Windows 8 at an NYC event (live blog) that's light on new details. More importantly, a flurry of Windows 8 reviews are out. Like others, David Pogue isn't a fan of Microsoft's efforts to fuse two UIs: "TileWorld is fantastic for touch screens ... Desktop Windows is obviously designed for the mouse ... you can’t live exclusively in one world or the other." The Verge has similar concerns, but is more positive about Win. 8's tablet potential. "Picking up a tablet PC with Windows 8 makes an iPad feel immediately out of date." (more[View news story]
