  • Futures gain as Greek creditors issue ultimatum [View news story]
    I give ultimatums to my cat every day too.

    Don't rip the leather sofa or you will be kicked out and become an outside cat.

    Don't bring home another dead squirrel or I will make you an inside cat only.

    Strangely my cat seems to believe the cans of wet food will keep coming and he ignores my stern ultimatums....

  • Report: Netflix to enter India in 2016 [View news story]
    Average internet speed among "broadband" in India is 2 mbps. "free" content available everywhere & also on sd cards or usb drives, loaded with the 25 recent movies and such like. for a throwaway price. General resistance to paying for content except the cable bill since the cable operator can physically remove the connection.

    This is Herbalife selling "diet" shakes in Ghana and Ethiopia all over again.

  • Piper hikes Facebook target to $120; shares rise [View news story]
    Guess I'm old fashioned. The the thought of strapping things on your face, or elsewhere on your body, for pleasure, just doesn't seem like a great idea, socially.

  • Apple caves on music streaming royalties [View news story]
    How would it be if a owner of a new restaurant told his suppliers that he would be giving away the food free for three months, as a marketing gimmick, and the suppliers would have to eat the cost?

    Won't fly, you think?

    one day spotting the dog tied up to a small fence while the panhandler was bothering someone else, I tried to pet the dog to make friends with it. It nearly snapped my fingers off.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Chinese Shares Shout Mayday! [View article]
    The Greeks so completely remind me of the militant beggars I used to encounter in downtown Chicago. There was one aggressive panhandler with a large dog I had to pass every day. I always worried if I didn't give him a buck or two, he would set the dog on me. Wonder if his threatening to bite dog was called Tsipras?

  • FedEx lower after results and guidance [View news story]
    UPS and Fedex have both gotten too greedy, and have effectively cartelized and are co-ordinating. Wtiness recent efforts to charge by parcel size.

    I'm pretty sure the real barrier to entry is not the planes and hubs, but the trucks and last mile. Amazon could buy the planes and build the hubs. And easily build and scale the tracking software.

    The labor for the trucks and last mile delivery could easily be crowdsourced or "uber for delivery" ed

    The minute Amazon or someone else announces a crowdsourced delivery initiative, watch one trick ponies like UPS and Fedex, with capital sunk in illiquid assets and huge bloated payrolls, come crawing and begging to lower thier rates, begging "please, please, pretty please, just don't crowdsource the deliveries."
