  • Research In Motion's Stock Surge, And Why It's Not Here To Stay [View article]
    Seriously, the app thing again?

    RIM is having port-a-thons where they port over 15,000 apps in 3 days. They are offering a $10k guarantee for qualified apps.

    Get off the app thing.
    No room in the market? A global market that continues to grow.

    Are you losing money on your shorts or something?

  • Research In Motion Beats, But Stock Plunges [View article]
    Right now they are spending money on selling BB10 to developers. They have been doing it for months. Win over the developers, you have the apps, which people keep saying is really really important.

    @gwynfryn They got a whole month before and after January 30th for advertising.

    But, if you repeat it with putting your own statement to dispute it, then you are agreeing with it.

  • Research In Motion Short Sellers Will Not Get A Second Chance [View article]
    The OS has no compelling advantage?
    They have very little apps in comparison?

    You could be an analyst on SA with that lack of knowledge.

    If they are long on RIMM, wouldn't that be good news for them to buy more shares?

  • The right-to-work bill in Michigan awaiting Governor Snyder's signature won't have any impact on the bottom line of the Big Three anytime soon, but could pull at the thread of the organized labor movement in the state, according to analysts. With the unions able to flex their muscles with the Detroit automakers historically, the question now centers on if future labor negotiations could be influenced, if even just a shade? [View news story]
    Canada proves Krugman wrong.
    The Roaring 20s proves Krugman wrong.


    "Within eight months after the change in the law took effect, Viking Yachts, the largest U.S. yacht manufacturer, laid off 1,140 of its 1,400 employees and closed one of its two manufacturing plants. Before it was all over, Viking Yachts was down to 68 employees. In the first year, one-third of U.S. yacht-building companies stopped production, and according to a report by the congressional Joint Economic Committee, the industry lost 7,600 jobs. When it was over, 25,000 workers had lost their jobs building yachts, and 75,000 more jobs were lost in companies that supplied yacht parts and material."

    Jan 14 call - well, I guess it was better than having one the day after the BB10 global announcement. Good luck in pushing the price down.

    @Mortbert Would you like to go back to the discussion on how minimum wages reduces the standard of living by offering less service or the same price or similar service or a higher price?

    I live in NC. Millionaires weren't the only ones buying boats in the 90s. Hundreds of small ship building companies shut down after the luxury tax was implemented because it put the boats just out of range of a lot of buyers. 1,000s lost jobs.

    Reagan lowered effective tax rates, which increased tax revenue. JFK also reduce income taxes, which increased tax revenue. You can't increase tax revenue beyond 20% of GDP. Current spending is at 25% of GDP.

    Paul Krugman is a loon. Or do you honestly believe that sending an alien invasion to break all the windows will help the economy? Don't answer that. The person whose window was broken now has to pay an expense for maintenance instead of investment towards increasing wealth.

    @Mortbert Are there more millionaires now, than before?

    All you have to do is look at what is defined as "poor" today. Years ago, the rich bought a box that would store food for longer periods of time without the need of bringing in chunks of ice, it is called a refrigerator. Because the rich had the extra money to purchase these items, they were built, refined and made cheaper. Now, 99% of all households have at least one refrigerator. Other items, like phones, televisions, computers, cars, watches, etc... also went the same route. Also, when the rich buy specialty items, like boats, many craftsmen are given jobs that a poor person wouldn't give them. That is until, government levies a luxury tax that puts buying boats out of the range of middle income makers, then in return makes 1,000s of craftsmen unemployed. (Bush Sr. did this)

    How many arguments do you want to lose?

    Al Gore and Barrack Obama both got Nobel prizes. One for lying and the other for doing nothing. I don't put any credence into that prize, which is now purely political.

    @Mortbert

    "a young girl handed a note to one of Franklin Roosevelt's aides asking for help"
    The result. Minimum wage and no child labor. What do you think a "young girl" is?

    I doubt that you'll understand that wealth is an increasing pie. The rich do not take from the poor to get wealthier. Wealth creation increases the size of the pie and allows more people to have some.

    @Mortbert Did you learn from what you posted that a girl asked FDR for help and he eliminated her job?
