  • Consumers who buy phones from cellular carriers no longer have legal protection to unlock the devices so they can work on another operator's network. Under a change in regulation from the Library of Congress's Copyright Office that came into force yesterday, unlocking phones is not expressly permitted under law. "It may go to court some time, and then it will be up to a judge," says lawyer Mitch Stoltz. [View news story]
    Incorrect statement when you buy the iPhone directly from Apple off of their website. Also, if you get it from a carrier it is not a lease it is subsidized for the contract once the contract is fulfilled you are not required to return because you own it and if you break the contract you pay a fee and still keep the phone.

    hacking your phone does not give you free service it allows you as a consumer to have freedom of choice with hardware that you have purchased and have ownership of. Example you can buy an unlocked iphone directly from apple and use it on your T-Mobile account even though T-Mobile does not offer the iphone.

  • Clearwire (CLWR +12.5%) soars to to $3.10 on news of Sprint's (S -1.1%) $2.90/share offer. Wells Fargo views Sprint's initial bid as a starting point for negotiations, and so, apparently, do many others. At $0.17/MHz.-pop, other spectrum deals have involved 50%+ premiums to the implied value of Sprint's offer, the firm notes. Though not 100% comparable, Verizon's cable spectrum purchases cost $0.68/MHz-pop[View news story]
    I don't see it going to $6. Doesn't Sprint already have a controlling shares thru a recent purchase giving them a hand in the board room?

  • Roundy's Supermarkets, Inc's CEO Discusses Q3 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I agree very informative it would be great if investor relations saw that info as well. By the way we have a new Mariano's store here in Schaumburg Illinois and it is rocking with business. Maybe that is the exception but that is what impressed me and I took the gamble.

  • More than 350 coal-fired generators, or ~6% of U.S. power generating capacity, are too old and dirty and should be retired in favor of cleaner alternatives, according to a report from the Union of Concerned Citizens. Southern Co. (SO) has the highest number of "ripe for retirement" plants at 48, followed by the Tennessee Valley Authority's 28, and Duke Energy (DUK) with 17. [View news story]

    Battleships have already been replaced in favor of newer hightech carriers.

    From wiki:
    "Some battleships remained in service during the Cold War and the last were decommissioned in the 1990s."

    I think this will bounce back up higher as will the rest of the market once the fiscal cliff nonsense is resolved. Opportunity to make some money off of that pop.

  • More on AMD: Sources tell Reuters a full-blown sale of the company is "not a priority," but that a patent sale is among the options on the table. There's definitely some logic behind a cash-raising effort: AMD has over $2B in debt on its balance sheet, and the company's deteriorating cash flow situation has led to debt rating downgrades (I, II). [View news story]
