  • The 5 On Apple's Press Invitation May Be A Triple Entendre

    (click to enlarge)5 Apple devices are expected to be refreshed later this year: the iPhone 5, the iPad Mini, the new iTouch, the iPod Nano and the iPod Shuffle.

  • We Are No Longer Amused

    From Reuters this morning:

    Top European stocks .FTEU3 were down 0.2 percent by 1145 GMT after the ECB responded to the report in Germany's der Spiegel.

    "It is absolutely misleading to report on decisions, which have not yet been taken and also on individual views, which have not yet been discussed by the ECB's Governing Council," the ECB said.

    Every time the markets cut the ECB some slack - which is exactly what it's "confidence! confidence!" proclamations are practically begging the markets to do -the ECB thumbs its nose and shouts "SUCKERS!" It's like watching a Monty Python gag.

    Even the uber-cryptic Fed doesn't behave this way. The ECB has a lot of growing up to do.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.
