  • Speaking on the issue of increased financial regulation, Goldman's Jim O'Neill asks rhetorically: “Is it really that entirely desirable to have financial stability at the expense of everything else?

  • ZIRP for everybody! That's Sheila Bair's "perfect solution" to America's income inequality; it would require merely a small adjustment to the Fed's easy money policy already available to (and highly profitable for) big banks and hedge funds. It "won’t cost taxpayers anything because the Fed is just going to print the money." Who knew Sheila had such a sarcastic wit?  [View news story]

  • The download caps placed by Canadian ISPs such as BCE and Shaw (SJR) are "almost a human rights violation," says Netflix's (NFLX) chief content officer - the caps have forced Netflix to make non-HD streams the default option in the country. CEO Reed Hastings has bashed both Canadian (as well as American) broadband prices before, but they haven't stopped the company from getting 15% of Canadians to subscribe to its streaming service. [View news story]

  • In her speech tonight at the Boston Economic Club, Fed Vice Chair Janet Yellen suggests the Fed may be close to taking more easing steps this month in response to ongoing housing problems, a weak jobs market and the escalating euro zone crisis. "There are a number of significant downside risks to the economic outlook," Yellen says, "Hence it may well be appropriate to insure against adverse shocks that could push the economy into territory where a self-reinforcing downward spiral of economic weakness would be difficult to arrest."  [View news story]

  • More on Apple's (AAPL) increasing use of overseas labor in making iPhones: It's a core conviction at AAPL that it isn’t just that workers are cheaper abroad. It believes "the vast scale of overseas factories as well as the flexibility, diligence and industrial skills of foreign workers have so outpaced their American counterparts that 'Made in the USA' is no longer a viable option for most Apple products.”  [View news story]
    Mike, protectionism (the tariff you speak of) is a tax on intelligence and pays for stupidity. We need to find a way to win, not change the rules of the game when we lose...

  • "It’s a bigger company than just engineers, and we pay the bills," grumbles a Yahoo (YHOO) ad sales employee, upset over Marissa Mayer's overwhelming focus on products and technical talent since becoming CEO.

  • Is Oracle (ORCL) quietly trying to kill the open-source MySQL database? Oracle, which gained control over MySQL's distribution through the Sun acquisition, has been withholding test cases for bug fixes from developers, and has pulled MySQL's revision history. Oracle gets a large chunk of its profits from the proprietary Oracle Database, and had to provide concerned regulators with assurances MySQL would be safe to win approval for the Sun deal. Microsoft and IBM also provide databases that compete with MySQL [View news story]

Quick price drops aren't unprecedented, but NOK (with market cap now down more than 95% from its tech-boom peak) is under scrutiny after a lackluster Lumia rollout.  [View news story]

  • Apple (AAPL) might be forecasting a major drop in iPhone 4S sales ahead of the next iPhone's launch. Topeka Capital's "Apple Monitor," which tracks the sales of Taiwanese firms who (on average) derive 50%-60% of their revenue from Apple, witnessed a 13% M/M sales decline in June. That compares with a 1% average increase over the last 7 years, and suggests a large decline in component orders. Nonetheless, analyst Brian White is maintaining his $1,111 PT on Apple.
