  • BlackBerry thinking of shutting down Swedish design ops [View news story]
    They acquired a 100 or so through acquisition and letting go 100. Good management of capital. Let others within BlackBerry do what the Swedish office was doing.

  • Apple Could And Should Diversify To The Renewable Energy Business [View article]
    @MWinMD,

    You are partially correct with your slightly misleading statement.http://bit.ly/1yY3ZSw


    Note that generating capacity is not the same as actual generation. Generation per MW of capacity (i.e., capacity factor) for renewables is often lower than that for fossil fuels and nuclear power. According to the most recent data (i.e., as of November 2014) provided by the U.S. Energy Information Administration, actual net electrical generation from renewable energy sources now totals a bit more than 13.1 percent of total U.S. electrical production; however, this figure almost certainly understates renewables' actual contribution significantly because EIA does not fully account for all electricity generated by distributed renewable energy sources (e.g., rooftop solar).

    Keep it real.

    @Willy Shoemaker,

    I have to agree with your statement, "If" 97% of climate scientists agree.... http://bit.ly/1K9Ihfb

    "It is not clear whether natural or anthropogenic forcings currently dominate. Of the abstracts of 11,944 climate-related papers published in the reviewed journals over the 21 years 1991-2011, only 41 (0.3%) were found to have stated explicitly that most warming since 1950 was manmade (Legates et al., 2013). This is not a “97% consensus” and we express our dismay at the attempts in some scientific journals and in much of the news media to suggest near-unanimity on a scientific question that very much remains open.".

    @Willy Shoemaker,

    I'm long the name to make money. Don't confuse me with an iBeliever. Apple has become a religion and Timmy the savior. As long as iPeople continue to follow him and them, I'll continue to buy $4000 a month of Apples holy shares.

    I'm happy you're doing well. Be well and prosper.

    "If I were BlackBerry I think I would lease AWS servers to minimize capex as opposed to expanding their hard asset base in BIS."

    Is AWS as solid as what Blackberry can do at home? Will this allow the NSA access to Blackberry data? AWS hackable?

    Cliff......thanks!

    Author,

    I could not think this to be a good suggestion. Apple knows the heart and soul of iPeople. Apple knows how to advertise and create want for their product (anything i). They sold the idea to them and nothing more. iPhone is Apple. Until they can untether from the phone, let's not give them any other ideas. Very good people in the energy markets are scrambling.

    Long Apple

  • BlackBerry's Health Initiatives Might Have Hit A Wall [View article]
    If Apple were to get the Red Dot Award, it wouldn't matter? If BlackBerry never got another Red Dot Award, people would notice. It's expected of them to rack up awards, they do this yearly. So yes, no news here.

    @bwsf,

    "And then you look at the financial reports and you realize what's important ".

    You understand that the cute little Apple bite is a consumer grade product, built for the "consumers". Enterprise demands more; much more! All the money in the world (and Apple has it. That, and the greatest engineers to boot) and they still can't get security. They make money not secure devices. Never will! Never!!

    Neither Apple products nor IBM have demonstrated secure unhackable mobile devices.

    The largest chemical company in the world had its medical records hacked recently. They use Good Technology.

    I will not list the ever growing hacks on Apple.

    Author, where is the proof that IBM and Apple will corner the market on anything. Apple is only 13% of the smartphone market and IBM is fading. You can hang your hat on them, I won't.
