  • How Mexico Is Becoming More Attractive To U.S. Manufacturers [View article]
    This was an interesting look at importation of goods from Mexico into the United States. I had not realized how much Mexico's trade suffered from China's favored WTO status. Your illustrations indicate that the trajectory favors Mexico in the long run, and IBM's seven branches in fast-growing Mexican cities suggest that prospects are exceptionally good.

  • Apple (AAPL) is sued for patent infringement by Intertrust Technologies, an early pioneer in digital copyright protection jointly owned by Sony (SNE) and Royal Philips Electronics (PHG). Intertrust has won these things in the past, getting a $440M settlement from Microsoft in 2004. [View news story]

    Your idea is interesting. Not only could Apple enter the gaming arena in a big way, it could probably introduce millions of non-gamers to the industry -- thus expanding the market. Thanks for posting.
