  • Fitch says gold rebound unlikely, gold miners in broad plunge [View news story]
    I think the paper gold by hedge funds manipulating the gold price. When look at the physical gold demands, it is huge gap between demand and supply. Also the cost of mining is rising tremendously some closing to 1,000/oz.
    When fiat money collapses, then gold price will be rocketing.

  • Gold Vs. Gold Miners: Which Is The Better Investment? [View article]
    Have seen report from International financial stat, April 2013, China ranked 6 at 1,054 tons about 1.6% of their reserve.
    Looks like paper gold hedging funds manipulate the market price but physical gold supply has a huge gap to demand and gives solid support. Once the fiat money collapses, gold price will be rocketing high.

  • Barrick Gold's (ABX +0.8%) Pascua-Lama gold mine in the Andes is set to receive yet another a blow, with a Chilean court expected to unanimously order the continued suspension of work on the $8.5B project. The court, which is due to rule today, froze construction at the site in April to consider claims by indigenous communities that the work has damaged glaciers and water supplies. Barrick will probably appeal a negative ruling, which could also affect Silver Wheaton (SLW) and Royal Gold (RGLD).  [View news story]
    suggest to give some benefits to Chilean gov to ease the head on situation, or to become friendship matter.

  • After sliding 61% YTD, Stifel Nicolaus gets around to downgrading Barrick Gold (ABX +2.6%) to Hold from Buy. The firm admits it should have moved sooner but expected a gold price bounce to allow a better exit price; the risks of continuing to wait could outweigh the rewards since it now expects gold to go lower before recovering in 6-12 months. The firm says ABX’s fortunes are linked to gold prices more than peers. [View news story]
    us economy is still on sandy ground. dun trust the wall street corcodile, they hammer the gold price to snatch world's wealth in their dirty hands.

  • Steve Overman, Nokia's (NOK) VP of global branding strategy and marketing strategy, has left the company. Overman co-wrote Nokia's marketing deal with Microsoft, and handled marketing campaigns for the Lumia and Asha lines. Last month, Nokia saw the departure of Shiv Shivakumar, the company's operations chief for India, the Middle East, and Africa. [View news story]
    One more thing, I think Nokia should stop selling 7.x Lumia (I'm currently using Lumia900 win7.8) because the market place is really bad in terms of lacking apps and poor updates.
    The biggest problem, in my opinion, is that market stores for Win8 & 7.x are not compatible. This requires providers to prepare 2 sets of apps for different versions of wp os, which is already few and thus even fewer.
    App providers support will be poor if the population of wp users is not large enough to justify their resources.

  • The Apple-Microsoft Comparison Is Valid [View article]
    Like to share that win8 is turly a revolutionary OS. I'm using Nokia Lumia900 WP, iphone3, Samsung Android 7" tab, 10"ipad, Dell laptop running vista, HP notebook running win7 and my 2005 old desktop Dell Dimension 5150 running Win8 pro, which was upgraded from xp about 8 months ago.
    My experience tells me that Win8 os is best among all my devices.
    Also share the report by Tony Bradley of PC World about how he views the 14% pc sales down. I think he has the points.

  • Apple: How To Admit You're Out Of Ideas [View article]
    Thomson Audio Team in Syracuse designed the first mp3 player under the brand "Lyra" RCA in 1999.
    Unfortunately the top management missed totally the opportunity to grow the digital audio business.
    Also mp3 is one of the patents owned by Thomson.

  • Windows 8.1 (Blue) will indeed feature the return of the Start button in desktop mode, The Verge reports, backing up a ZDNet report suggesting likewise. But it won't feature the return of the Start menu - the button will merely allow users to click their way to Win. 8's (oft-criticized) start screen. The Verge also backs up ZDNet in stating Microsoft (MSFT +4.1%) will provide an option to boot directly into desktop mode. (ValueAct: I, II[View news story]

    The biggest problem, in my opinion, is that market stores for win8 & 7.x are not compatible. This requires providers to prepare 2 sets of apps for different version of wp os, which is already thin and even thinner.
