  • Report: Facebook talking with Hollywood about Oculus deals [View news story]
    One thing I thought Google can do is, partner with Disney (perhaps at Epcot center) and build a "holodeck" (Star Trek style) ... using their street maps technology, google glass and moving floors.

    The experience starts in a special room (rooms could be small "pods" for individuals or small groups) with moving floors in many directions and projectors built all around. Visitors can choose where they want to be - e.g. Paris. Google street view videos provide a 360 degree coverage of the starting location. As the visitor walks in a direction, floor moves back to compensate for walking experience and the sorrounding imagery changes in co-ordination. Visitors will wear a special google glass which will provide them additional information, prompts, feedback etc.

    Not sure about the details of oculus but Google certainly has a lot of the technology needed for a virtual experience.

  • Here It Is, The Big Sell-Off... Has Been Wrong The Past 169 Times [View article]
    Of course, the market will come back up. I'm not dumping my GILD, AAPL or BABA (aka YHOO). I'm only talking about recognizing a high probability short term correction at an early stage, take profits, increase cash position and look for short opportunities and buy the dip at the appropriate time.

    Other than the Direxion 3X bear ETFs, does anyone have any other recommendation for maximizing returns in a downturn?

    Probability of a serious correction increases with time. The very fact that the past 169 times did not lead to a major drop over 5 years means that the probability of one occurring this time or in one of the next 3 or 6 months is "astronomically high".

    In other words, SA should not contain any success stories - only case studies & ideas for doom and gloom.

    Michael - There are 3 kinds of people in the world:

    1. People who have an iPhone
    2. People who would like to own an iPhone some day
    3. Michael Blair

    #3 being a small demographics of one person, #2 is a huge opportunity for Apple and they will do well in future.
