NEW YORK (

Nexus One smartphone is a trending topic Tuesday afternoon, as mobile carriers have decided not to carry the device.

Sprint

(S) - Get Report

said yesterday that it scrapped plans to carry the phone, while

Verizon

(VZ) - Get Report

previously said it would not make Nexus One available.

Sprint intended on carrying the phone, but decided that another new phone, the Evo, would be better suited for its customers.

JetBlue Airways

(JBLU) - Get Report

continues to make headlines after it announced on Monday that it was offering $10 fares for remaining flights departing today and Wednesday.

"Wachovia online" is a popular search phrase on Google Tuesday morning, after online users couldn't access their

online banking account.

The problem, however, seems to have been resolved.

"Sirius Internet radio" is another hot topic, but there doesn't seem to be any news driving the searches -- so far as we can tell. Shares of

Sirius XM Radio

(SIRI) - Get Report

are hovering around the $1.10 mark today, after Sirius XM stock three weeks ago cleared the $1.00 level required for Nasdaq listing requirements. Subscribers to Sirius XM Radio can also listen online at Sirius Internet Radio.

"Gmail down" was a trending topic earlier this morning as rumors floated on the Internet that

e-mail system is down. But as of 11:15 a.m. Gmail appeared to be up and running.

The Gulf oil leak continues to be a concern as

BP

(BP) - Get Report

fails in its efforts to stop the spill.

The oil spill

continues to widen its impact on the environment, the U.S. economy and politics.

BP said a containment dome, which it hoped would contain the leak, didn't work. At the beginning of last week, BP executives told members of Congress in a closed door meeting that in a worst case scenario the well could actually be leaking at a rate of 60,000 barrels of oil per day, 10 times the previous estimate -- though BP continues to maintain that the actual leak rate is much lower.

Now BP and

Transocean

(RIG) - Get Report

, which owned the sunken rig, will face lawmakers today, as Congress tries to decide who is responsible for the explosion and leak.
