  • Intel's New Tablet Processor Beats The Best ARM Chip By A Huge Margin [View article]
    Why is that? Intel runs windows, android and osx. Arm runs winrt, android and ios. Seems software advantage for intel if anything.

  • Why I Won't Be Buying Netflix Anytime Soon [View article]
    Its only a matter of time before all networks follow HBO's example and we all start buying content straight from the source, cut out all the middlemen. The NFL deal with MS for X-box One is imo the beginning of the end for cable companies, Netflix, Hulu, everybody.

  • iOS 7's (AAPL) support for physical game controllers should worry home console vendors (MSFT, SNE, NTDOY.PK), thinks BGR's Jonathan S. Geller. A combo of iOS game controllers, high-speed 802.11ac Wi-Fi links, and Apple's AirPlay tech for the wireless mirroring of an iOS display on a TV (via Apple TV) could replicate a console experience at a lower cost, while also allowing gameplay to be continued on an iPhone/iPad away from home. For now, home consoles maintain a decent graphics quality edge. But mobile processors are quickly narrowing the gap. Nvidia's (NVDA) Shield Android handheld console also supports TV mirroring. [View news story]

    Uggghh. Third party, not very good, $.99, no better than the android one, which bites. Better to just use the browser.

  • Team Alpha Retirement Portfolio: Use The Cycle Rotation To Grow Dividends And Gains [View article]
    Yeah RS, you might be a little late here. I backed up the truck on intc through the beginning of the year when everyone and their dog was saying they were done (thanks ashraf 4% yoc!). With the release of Haswell, its obvious in the action of intc and armh that the street has taken notice. Not saying intc is a bad buy here, just kind of surprised, your usually ahead of the pack.
    Same goes with msft. I am very long both of those, adding as,much as I could afford of both through the beginning of the year. Sentiment was just so low for such ridiculous reasons, it just screamed opportunity.

    So my .02$, both are buys, I'm just surprised they are not already in the portfolio.

  • Why Microsoft's Dumb Move On Xbox One Might Actually Be Smart [View article]
    Since the release of windows 8, major changes began appearing on my Xbox, and I began to see the glimmer,of a vision of where MS was going. For those of you who do not already use an Xbox, let me explain a little what I mean. First of all, I never paid a dime for my Xbox, it was given to me as a gift when I signed a contract with my cable company. The Xbox is capable of being used as a digital tv box. Through my Xbox live account, I have access to Netflix. Later internet explorer was added and most recently, SkyDrive. I can now use the Xbox to display personal content on my 62" wall mounted tv, such as pictures taken with my Lumia 920 and synched to SkyDrive. The use of the controller is a little awkward for these actions which is why the addition of smartglass was so welcome. Most recently I downloaded the Hockey Night in Canada app, which has allowed me to watch all of the Stanley,cup playoffs without the use of cable. It us only a matter of time before this model is followed by other content creators, and it is not a stretch to imagine a la carte programming through the use of apps downloaded straight from the content providers like Hbo that can be written once and then used on all of Microsoft's products. Sony does not have a chance of competing against this level,of functionality.

    The bottom line is that the downfall of the Xbox over issues that are irrelevant in the face of all this potential lead me to recall a line from one of my favorite Shakespearean plays. "the lady doth protest too much". The reality is MS won the battle for the living room before the Xbox one was even released.

  • Own These World's Leading Brands And Never Fear A Recession Again [View article]
    Chuck, you sir have a ton of patience. I'm not even sure half the commentors even read your article, let alone bothered to grasp it. What good a tool to think with if your audience is incapable of thinking?

    Thanks for another great article, I read every one with a fine tooth comb. I truly feel that one day your articles will be collected into one of the greatest investing books ever.

    I cant believe the nerve of a guy to come on a website dedicated to learning how to invest and telling people not to bother. Just fork over your money to me and my ilk, and we'll take care of it for you, for a price. And you're the snake oil salesman!

    Again, I cant believe your patience.

  • ARM Holdings Starts To Sound Desperate [View article]
    Ashraf,

    I'm really happy that this is starting to go your way, and only partly because I took the same trade (long intc, didn't have the guts to take the short side). You have worked very hard to cut through the bull and deliver the facts to us so that we could benefit from this swing of fortune. So thanks, and keep up the good work.

  • Intel's Haswell: The Must Read Guide [View article]
    As someone who invests, but also uses AutoCAD, spreadsheets and database software extensively in my day to day work, I can say unequivocally that the PC is far from dead and that Ashraf's thesis on Intel is spot on. There is no other company that is positioned to revolutionize the hardware needed for improvements in these areas, and that these areas are what make the world go round, not the consumer electronics side which gets all the headlines. The thought of drafting on future touch enabled computers makes me drool. What Intel is ushering in will not only benefit their investors but will bring major gains to the worldwide economy as a whole. These guys are architects of the future, why on earth wouldn't you want to be a part of that?

  • Why Windows 8.1 Is Irrelevant And It's Time For Investors To Look Toward Windows 9 [View article]
    Windows 8 was a beta beta test. Nothing more. This is how MS always operates, they have a vision, they release a product to their customers, then they refine it over the next couple of years based of customer usage, and developer needs. Windows 8 was windows 95 or NT, which was never fully fleshed out till 98 se and xp sp 2 respectively. They can do tgis because their main customer base sticks with the proven stable version of the current iteration, while techies and fans play with te latst nd geatest. This is why business are just migrating to windows 7 from xp, and why they will eventually migrate to the new touch enabled windows in a few years, once what windows 8 started has been optimised.

  • The Lumia 925 (NOK) is officially revealed. Thanks to its aluminum frame, it's ~50g lighter than the 920, and ~30g lighter than the 928. Otherwise, the specs resemble the 928's: a 4.5," 1280x768, OLED display, a dual-core, 1.5 GHz., Qualcomm (QCOM) processor, and an 8.7MP camera with optical image stabilization. There's no xenon flash, but there is an advanced camera app that leverages Scalado. Nokia will be charging a steep unsubsidized price of €469 ($609) when the 925 hits China and Europe this June. But T-Mobile USA (TMUS) is expected to sell it for less than $100 subsidized. Shares -5%. Were investors expecting a 41MP sensor PureView phone[View news story]
    This phone makes my 920 look like a dinosaur. Wireless charging will be available with optional colorful cases.

  • Intel's Server Market Share To Decline As Competition Heats Up [View article]
    Ok, let me get this straight, so the world leader in processor design and manufacture, with countless years of proven results is in danger because another company claims they are designing a product that will compete.

    yeah, reads as stupid as I thought
