  • Apple's Last Chance To Dominate The High End [View article]
    " I want my children to have at least their state run kindergartens and schools kept free of brute-force sales pitches by big brands. Any brands for that matter. "

    State run schools are all about brute-force sales pitches.

  • Intel Shorts Are In Trouble [View article]
    BigT- this senior is loving his Intel powered MacBook Pro with 2.3Ghz Core I7, 16GB DDR3 and SSD drives... Power consumption low enough to let me wander around without having to replug it every few hours.. My BigComplaint is that it does not heat up- it is 5 degrees outside and I'm heating with wood. the only time it feels warm is when the battery recharges...

  • Glycomimetics IPO Is Risky But Promising [View article]
    I had an offer to participate via an eTrade account. I would reckon that the offer suggests that they were shaking the shrubs for interest.

  • Exploring Intel's Manufacturing Leadership [View article]
    What is be the effect on yields due to the smaller sizes to the negative? That is, since Intel is able to salvage a percentage of defects as lesser valued product in the larger sizes, does less size/complexity mean a total loss per defect? I know it may not be meaningful- just curious.

  • It May Soon Be Time To Be Bullish On Hewlett-Packard [View article]
    I just took a small position to keep HP on my radar with a similar premise. I believe there is a greater replacement cycle waiting on the new products from Intel than the market suspects. I have been holding onto my 17" core duo as it still runs and technology has not left it behind yet. I suspect that will likely change in the next year. Thanks for the good overview.

    I believe MSFT will ride INTC's highway into mobile. Wintel becomes Intelwinds.

  • Why Stocks Continue To Levitate In The Face Of Eroding Economic Metrics: Ask Elizabeth Warren [View article]
    At the end of the day it will have been "too big to bail".

    The problem is a lack of lifeboats.

    At the end of the day I always hope for a new outro line. Rarely am I disappointed by what comes earlier.

  • Barnes & Noble (BKS) gains 1.2% in premarket trading after it opens up Nook products to Google Play and in the process exponentially increases the number of apps available to users. The company is already pushing the development hard on its website as a selling feature. The combination of a friendly relationship with Google on top of the $300M Microsoft plowed into Nook Media gives B&N some nice friends to have as it looks to potentially re-invent itself in the future. [View news story]
    "...looks to


    reinvent itself
