Ask Sia who she's most excited about seeing at Coachella this year and the singer-songwriter brings up Prince before making a startling confession: "I don't listen to music. I'm such [an idiot]. I like the Carpenters and Elvis. Is Robyn playing? Dolly Parton?" Sadly, not this year. Regardless, Sia and her mates are headed to Indio on Friday, long before her scheduled appearance at the music festival on Sunday afternoon. "It's so sunny and it's outdoors and I get to see a bunch of bands and go swimming at the hotel pool," she says.

Love her or hate her, Rihanna doesn't seem to want a respite from her omnipresence on the pop charts. Though her previous album, “Talk That Talk,” was released less than a year ago, she's already moved on and started drafting her next record. On Wednesday, the singer issued “Diamonds,” the lead single from what's expected to be her seventh album in as many years. (Listen to the track below.) “Diamonds” trades in the thumping, heavy-duty backbeats of recent singles “Where Have You Been” and “We Found Love” for something more scaled down.

Worldwide semiconductor sales growth slowed for the fourth straight month in December, and growth this year could be less than half of what's expected, an industry group said. December chip sales rose 22% from a year ago to $17.9 billion, the Semiconductor Industry Assn. said. That was down 2.1% from November. Sales for all of 2000 rose to $204 billion, missing the SIA's prediction of $205 billion. Chip makers including Intel Corp. and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. cut their sales forecasts at the end of 2000, citing disappointing demand for personal computers and cell phones as U.S. economic growth wanes.

Securities Industry Assn. Chairman John Bachmann told the Senate Banking Committee that the SIA supports reducing the time for disclosure of a purchase of 5% or more of a company's stock to one day from 10 days but does not think the disclosure requirement should be reduced to 3% from 5%, as the bill would do.

Wall Street leaders are increasingly concluding--and admitting--that they aren't going to win their decade-long battle to keep banks out of the stocks and bonds business. The latest sign of their retreat from the lobbying effort came here Wednesday when the head of the Street's main trade group said the organization no longer opposes repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933.

A rewrite of mutual fund prospectuses to put them in plain English should be voluntary and not mandatory, as federal regulators are proposing, the securities industry says. The Securities Industry Assn. submitted comments Thursday on the sweeping initiative being pushed by the Securities and Exchange Commission to make prospectus documents simpler for investors to understand by using plain English and clearing away technical jargon and clutter.

He had to get a state law changed to do it, but John Sias has no qualms about becoming a father again at age 69. "I now have a son," he said with a mixture of relief and joy in his voice. But the proud father wasn't in a hospital maternity ward; he was in a courtroom. And his new son isn't a newborn. He's 25 years old. Sixteen years after Sias met Chris McMullen through Nashua's Big Brother organization, the pair have finally made legal what they have long known: They belong together.

The chip industry's monthly book-to-bill ratio surged to 1.10 in October from 0.98 in September, exceeding expectations and marking the first time this year that the measure has been above 1.00. The Semiconductor Industry Assn., which releases the number, also said Monday that it plans to phase out the monthly figure because it isn't a global number and doesn't accurately reflect what is going on in the $150-billion-a-year world market.
