    Punch bowl is taken away, party ends...indexes tottering in high heels, doing the walk of shame, walking slowly back home where they belong..

  • Facebook: Bulls On Parade [View article]
    Interesting that your top 20 social platforms makes no mention of Whatsapp and Snapchat. A case of "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?"

  • Bob Galvin Turning In His Grave [View article]
    The minute I read this author cited the paid shill Florian Mueller who never disclosed he was a paid shill with conflicts of interest until it came out in a court case involving Oracle, that was the minute this author lost all credibility.

    The paid shill Mueller was the one praising the Oracle over a case about 7 lines of code that Oracle lost miserably. And this author calls him the "definitive authority".

  • Microsoft up following Nadella/Gates report; Gates might stay involved [View news story]
    One wonders how the product of a university in India famed for only one thing - viz. taking students in return for "capitation fees" completely irrespective of any merit - how a product of Manipal rose so far and so fast.

    Satya must be a champion schmoozer and corporate politician. Not a great sign for Microsoft.

  • Report: Yahoo working on search tech that could displace Microsoft [View news story]
    Let me see, She of The Blue Dress is blindly imitating whatever she saw at Google. Not a single original idea in return for all that money she pays herself via a starry eyed tame board.
    Or perhaps she has great and original ideas. As they say, her great ideas are not original and her original ideas are not great.

  • Another 'Typical' Tesla PR Stunt [View article]
    It takes a lot more time to write an article (I hope) than to read and write a comment. The money you get by writing articles (I sometimes notice a small check being deposited) is not the motivation to write articles or comments here. Since it takes about 100 X more time to write an article than to write a comment, any comments you make to Mr. Logical Thought, logically would apply to yourself 100 X more...
    I know plenty of gadget geeks and "creators" who are far from billionaires. I pay some of them to create protoypes and proof of concepts and they are not exactly rolling in it. There are entire websites like Spark Fun, where gadget geeks create gadgets for trifling amounts. Even when I put a small request the response is quite overwhelming.
    Elon Musk is not rich because he is a geek or a creator, he's rich because he s good showman with an eye for publicity. Sort of a Paris Hilton of VC. History and Musk's personal history (wherein he has launched ferocious attacks on critics) has shown that such showmen don't handle adversity well and quite often the huge egos of such showmen have led them into dishonest acts.
    I make no accusation that Elon Musk himself is doing anything illegal, just pointing out flamboyant people like him who are looked at admiringly as "the smartest person in the room" often crash and burn.

    Looks like author started to write an article and then gave up abruptly and published what he had. Reminds me of many papers I graded as a TA in grad school. You always knew who started at last minute and then gave up.

    You may be right. Andy Zaky was also right on all his bullish forecasts. Until he wasn't.

  • Apple rises, eBay slips following payments report; questions remain [View news story]
    Apple payments...MC & Visa's 0.65% transaction fee will look puny before whatever Apple decides to charge...a few high end luxury stores will pay maybe 3-5% as transaction will have a huge margin and a tiny tiny market share....bulls will crow about how Apple makes a 95% margin while MC and visa don't... ]some fanboys will crow about "the quality" of the payment and the "elegant minimalistic" design of the payment interface....which will be crippled by several "features" such as you can only pay in round amounts of $10...all which said features will go to show the far seeing future prognostication capablity of Apple...eventually after 20 years Apple will extend the payment to China...immediately bulls will say 1.6 BILLION people who will all rush to use $10round payment while paying 30% cut to Apple...just like the people on welfare back in the US who buy the iPhone 5S....who will feel so relieved that they no longer have to do calculations now that everything is rounded up to the next multiple of $10...certain fanboy authors here on SA will write about the "Brilliance of Apple and why it makes the best payment systems in the world"...not to mention Apple will then invent mobile payments & credit cards, patent them, and sue every credit card issuer, Paypal, Visa and MC in Cupertino and some not too bright bay area jury will award gadzillion-bajillion in Apple patent "Rectangular Strip of Plastic with Rounded Corners with a 16 digit number Embossed on Said Surface"
