(Associated Press Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Alone, together: Snowed in, in the age of hashtagsHAMDEN, Conn. (AP) _ The East Coast woke up under a blanket of snow this weekend and collectively documented the experience on the myriad social and mobile inventions of the past decade. Facebook, Twitter and other technologies make it increasingly difficult to stay isolated _ even if you're stuck home alone. "The funny thing is that I actually checked my Instagram feed before I even looked out my own window," says Eric Witz, who lives in Medford, Mass.

Phone cos: Cell service holding up after stormNEW YORK (AP) _ Cellphone companies say their networks are largely up and running after a blizzard dumped up to 3 feet of snow on New England.

Dell looks to calm shareholder concern over buyoutNEW YORK (AP) _ Dell is trying to reassure shareholders about its proposed $24.4 billion acquisition by a group led by its founder, saying it considered a number of strategic options before agreeing to the deal.

9 things Apple could do with $137BApple Inc. has recently come under attack for its practice of stockpiling cash. At the end of last year, the company was sitting on $137 billion _and the heap keeps growing. Corporations normally don't hoard cash the way Apple does. They keep enough around for immediate needs, and either invest the rest in their operations or dole it out to shareholders in the form of dividends or stock buybacks. If they need more cash for, say, an acquisition, they borrow it.
