  • Despite Netflix (NFLX +8.2%) rising over 30% already this year, Whitney Tilson reckons the stock "should go crazy to the upside."

  • Sony Could Regain Its Previous Glory  [View article]
    The psx vita will fail jjust like ninrendos latest effort the nds d3, for the simple reason that phones are fast becoming the new mmobile gaming platform. Granted most android and phone games are quite bland this will improve.

    That leaves the psx3 and its next generation as the only unique property belonging to sony exclusively. All tvs, phones are fast coming commodities, they all are starting to look the ssame aas their cocompetitors. Televisions and phones will all be running android soon enough, so why would anyone pay a premium ffor a Sony tv?
