ON THE MONEY-STUDENT LOANS

NEW YORK â¿¿ Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle agree that interest rates on student loans shouldn't double in July. Especially if they're going to be blamed for it in an election year. The matter has become a political football in recent weeks, with both Democrats and Republicans maneuvering to cast responsibility on the other side in case Congress fails to pass legislation to prevent rates from doubling. Amid all the rhetoric, a look at what's really at stake. By Business Writer Candice Choi.

DIGITAL LIFE-TECH TEST-ONLINE STORAGE

NEW YORK â¿¿ Moving digital files between your work and home computers can be a pain. Add smartphones and tablet computers to the mix, and you've got yourself a giant headache. Google Inc. unveiled its solution to the problem last week, while two other companies, Dropbox Inc. and Microsoft Corp., improved their existing offerings. The services make using and sharing files from multiple locations easy, though they are no replacement yet for your regular storage drives. By Anick Jesdanun.

OF MUTUAL INTEREST-DISOWNING APPLE

BOSTON â¿¿ Mutual fund managers are used to justifying why they invest in a particular stock. But the market impact of Apple Inc. is so great these days that some managers must explain why they don't own the powerhouse stock, or why they own relatively little of it. Shares of the world's most valuable company are up more than 40 percent this year, and the few large-growth funds that don't count Apple among their top holdings are underperforming. We'll interview two Apple-averse managers who explain why they're remaining holdouts. By Personal Finance Writer Mark Jewell.
