Visitors walk past the IBM booth at the 9th China International Software Product & Information Service Expo in NanjingBy Marina Lopes WASHINGTON (Reuters) - When IBM Corp CEO Ginni Rometty was asked recently for her tips on how to transform companies, she spoke of "relentless reinvention" and not protecting the past. Applying those precepts to IBM is proving particularly tricky as many of the company's old-line businesses have already been shut down or sold, while the units that are supposed to push future growth, such as cloud and security, face stiff competition. Earlier on Monday, IBM reported a marked slowdown in business in September and abandoned its 2015 operating earnings target. ...

IBM shares fell nearly 7 percent to a three-year low, a blow for legendary investor Warren Buffett whose Berkshire Hathaway Inc is its top shareholder.

The awesome 'Guardians of the Galaxy' mixtape will be released on cassetteMarvel's Guardians of the Galaxy makes it clear that Peter "Star Lord" Quill is willing to risk his life for two things: his friends, and a cassette mixtape called "Awesome Mix Vol. 1." The mix has been available in the real world in digital, CD, and record form, but soon you'll be able to get your hands on Quill's actual tape — or one designed to look exactly like it — when Marvel releases a special version of the cassette to a select group of record stores shortly before the movie comes out on Blu-Ray and DVD on December 9th. Disney hasn't said how many copies of the tape it'll be producing, but it's the first music cassette released by the company since 2003. The track listing includes 10cc's "I'm Not In Love," The Runaways' "Cherry Bomb," and Blue Swede's infamous "Hooked on a Feeling," used in the film's first trailers. Guardians of the Galaxy's Peter Quill managed to keep his Walkman around, but if you threw yours out years ago, then you're in luck —  the tape also comes with a digital download of the 12-track album.

I rode a hoverboard designed to save buildings from earthquakes and floodsAs I push off for my first time on an actual working hoverboard, the first thought in my mind is not how different it is from how Michael J. Fox did it in Back To The Future Part II — which is obviously just a movie. It’s whether or not I’m going to immediately go face-first into this large, copper-lined floor. It’s also sinking in that this highly experimental skateboard required signing a liability waiver, and that there are several people positioned around me whose sole job it is to make sure I and their $10,000 prototype don’t go flying out of control.
