Weekly Highlights: Sony And Microsoft Vie For Domination, LeBron James' Big Payday And More

Louis Bedigian

During the first week of June, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) ruled the media with countless headlines.

Last week, Apple took a backseat while Sony (NYSE: SNE) and Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) took center stage, thanks to their presentations at the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo.

Neither company introduced new hardware, but their software presentations proved to be an ongoing draw at mainstream and specialty publications alike.

E3 is a trade show and is not open to the public, but Nintendo (OTC: NTDOY) and Best Buy (NYSE: BBY) offered a nice consolation prize in the form of a nationwide consumer event.

Elsewhere in the world of technology, China Mobile (NYSE: CHL) expanded outside of its homeland.

Apple and Beats Electronics made a huge deposit into LeBron James' bank account.

Samsung (OTC: SSNLF) diversified its tablet lineup.

Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) announced a streaming music service for Prime subscribers.

Disclosure: At the time of this writing, Louis Bedigian had no position in the equities mentioned in this slideshow.
