(WFC) said Tuesday that its profit edged up by 4 percent to $2.28 billion, or 68 cents per share, in the three months ended in September.

Leopard

Apple Inc.’s (AAPL) next-generation operating system, Mac OS X Leopard, will be available Oct. 26 for $129, and Apple’s online store is taking preorders, the company said Tuesday.
