A fake Internet report that Apple Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs had suffered a heart attack was posted by a teenager, and investigators haven't found evidence he tried to profit from driving down the stock, two people with knowledge of the matter said.
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is examining the 18-year-old's motives after the article on CNN's iReport.com sent Apple shares down as much as 5.4 percent Oct. 3, according to the people, who declined to be identified because the probe isn't public. While the investigation is continuing, the agency hasn't unearthed any trading records that show he benefited from the drop, one of them said.
Unless the SEC finds evidence of stock manipulation, the case is probably out of its jurisdiction. Another prosecutor could always argue it broke some other law, though.

Google’s new G1 phone announced today
is the first real competitor to the iPhone. Like Apple’s product,
it’s a serious handheld computer with a powerful new operating
system (called Android) and a clever touch-based user interface. Like
the iPhone, it’s likely to be a major new platform for
third-party software. But it’s also very different, and may
appeal to different buyers.
The phone, expected to be the first of many to use the Android
operating system, was largely designed by Google, and was built by HTC
of Taiwan. It will be sold in the U.S. starting next month by T-Mobile,
for $179 with a two-year contract.
Here are some first impressions of the G1, based on some experience
with a prototype. This isn’t a full review; that will come later,
when I’ve had a chance to use a more finished device.
Michael Bloomberg announced Thursday that he will ask City Council to
change New York's term-limits law so he can run for another four years

the financial meltdown.
