  • Apple (AAPL) has until tomorrow to outline which Samsung devices it wants to ban from being sold in the U.S. following the U.S. company's massive patent win. A hearing is provisionally set for Sept. 20. Following the verdict, Samsung (SSNLF.PK), might need to postpone introducing new devices so that it can make design changes. Meanwhile, the WSJ, Bloomberg (I,II) and Reuters provide accounts of jury's deliberations. [View news story]
    I've never once had any of this. Have you had any kind of screen lock on?

    Nokia needs to actually release competitive devices to be a factor. We haven't seen that. This won't really help them much. They're still way behind in the smartphone market right now.

    The jury were expressly forbidden from punishing Samsung in the instructions given to them, and they were only to compensate for losses. The jury foreman has since said they imposed fees to punish Samsung.

    This will be one of many grounds for appeal.

    I don't disagree in the slightest. I'm just going off what they said themselves in the article :)

    Yeah, reading the article it sounds like the miners sell when they can. Shame they can't hold. I, for one, would take the hit on the short term dividend for long term greater gain. Oh well :)

    Interesting article. I found this a little worrying:
    “Instead of paying the $30 to $40 to $50 an ounce that people were asking last year, we waited until the near bottom of the cycle"

    When silver prices go back up what's to prevent this becoming a problem in the future, inhibiting further investment and growth?

    I know they'll be making a lot more on each ounce, but will it cap out then?

    Does SLW have the option of holding off on sales of ounces until a later date when the prices are better?

    If so, what are the pros and cons of doing so?

    Cons I can think of:
    Less quarterly income in the short term
    Potentially less cash to invest, though they have a fairly decent amount of cash already.

  • The Apple iPhone 5: Put Up Or Shut Up [View article]
    "In February 2011, Microsoft executives literally boarded a plane for Finland and dropped off briefcases full of cash at Nokia headquarters."

    I don't think "literally" means what you think it does, and basing investments on rumours read on tech blogs is not really a good idea. Much of the time they're people just trying to see what they can get tech blogs to publish.

  • Ford (F) reportedly is planning a radical redesign of its F-150 truck, trading in steel for a largely aluminum body, in a bid to meet tougher fuel requirements. Ford hopes a switch to the lighter metal will cut the weight by ~700 pounds, a 15% reduction for the company's most popular U.S. pickup. But can die-hard pickup buyers be convinced that aluminum is as tough as steel?  [View news story]
    Whoops, that wasn't meant to be acceleration :)

    That's not neccessarily true. Example being a truck from 30 years ago and a compact car from today. I'd take the compact car.

    Crumple zones, crash tests, etc. all matter far more than weight.

    I'd rather not be hit by any truck, but if I'm going to be hit by a truck I'd like it to be a bit lighter if possible. Force = mass x acceleration.

    For the truck itself, lightness on its own does not mean it's any less safe than a heavier truck. I'd rather have a 100mph crash in an F1 car than in a truck.

    How will this change the raw materials prices for a truck?

  • Silver Wheaton: Get In Before Fed Actions [View article]
    Preposterous?

    Have you seen what has happened to the buying power of the dollar in the last 10 years? How about 20? 50? 100 years?

    Say what you like but inflation is real, reduction of your buying power is real and the pushing of central banks to reduce the buying power of savings in order to enable those who would push us debt is very very real.

    Preposterous is suggesting otherwise in the face of all of these facts.
