  • Facebook: Undervalued When Viewing Peer Group P/E Multiple [View article]
    With the ad blocker war heating up between Apple and Google, Facebook's closed garden mobile app is a nice safe place for advertisers to put their ads.

    Facebook is a great buy right now. Nobody can mess with their app ads. It is the Switzerland for mobile ads.

  • Google moves to better monetize Gmail, reportedly preps new Nexus phones [View news story]
    "stop mining my data Google"

    It will only get worse and more invasive, since they will start loosing HUGE mobile ad revenue shortly.

    Google management team is greedy and EVIL dark overlords. Going after app developers that use ads other than Google is pretty mean and low. No wonder so many programmers have left or are leaving Google. They are done! Google should have been busted up 5 years ago. The Feds need a refresher course in antitrust, free trading, and competition laws. Google has killed off millions of businesses the last 4 years and it is only getting worse(read article).

    Amazon and Facebook seem like better buys now, since they have closed gardens with friendly growing ad revenue.

  • Why Facebook's 1 Billion Milestone Is A Big Deal [View article]
    "the billion users didn't necessarily log into face books actual website"

    Will here is some new REAL facts EVERYONE should love about FaceBook.

    Apple will be releasing the Ad Blocker friendly IOS 9 Safari very soon.

    So what does this mean? It means Google's ads on Safari IOS can and will be blocked by millions. This move will drive business advertisers over to Facebook's closed garden site where they will get a bigger and more stable audience for their mobile ads.

    Do the numbers, Facebook will get more and more advertisers thanks to this Apple browser update.

    I would buy Facebook before they role out the new IOS 9 Safari.

  • Google: Fighting Diabetes Is A Multi-Billion Dollar Opportunity [View article]
    "I think a lot of these "moonshots" have quite a bit more potential value than GOOG is currently getting credit for"

    And what is paying for these PR pumped dud moon shots? Yup, you guessed it, their ad revenue.

    And will the Google mobile ad revenue be growing next year? Not according to the latest news...

    You are better off to put your money in a closed garden like FaceBook. The ads their can't get messed with since it is FaceBook's App. Ask yourself, what ever happened to Google+, the FaceBook killer?

    I predict Google will be letting go a lot of employees and shelving a lot of moon shot programs late next year. Ad revenue greases the wheels at this company and it will be disappearing like their once great search results.

    "All this stuff is too far fetched and speculative"

    Pretty much. More Google smoke and mirrors.

    What Google needs to be fighting is in-house stupidity that is KILLING their brand faster than bleach on salmonella! The new blurry alphabet soup style kiddie logo is a perfect example. What's next? A Google Clippy???

    They need to take a branding lesson from Coke!

  • Why Is YouTube Gaming Cutting Off Its Nose To Spite Its Face? [View article]
    Speaking of cutting off?

    I CAN NOT wait until Apple roles out IOS 9 and the available third party Google ad blocker for Safari.

    I will truly enjoy watching Google get squeezed! You can say goodbye to most of Google's mobile ad income which will finally send the stock dropping down to where it should be, and hopefully blow apart their horrid search monopoly.

    In the food-chain of the internet, Apple is still way above in the pecking order. Google needs to start kissing they're a$$ again before Apple squeezes their ad income as dry as the Salt River.

    Two words - Sell Google

  • Apple: Best Tasting Bear Ever? [View article]
    "Cook seems to always say everything is "fabulous" "

    I fear Cook more than this correction. His music investments and the Apple Watch have hurt Apple way more than the market correction.

    I want to see Apple get into the search game and network $ecurity which gets worse news every day!(Ashley Madison)

    Maybe buy a company like Palo Alto Networks and the neglected Bing Search?

  • Why Apple Investors Shouldn't Fear China [View article]
    The China stock market investors that are getting their tails handed to them in are mostly already extremely rich. They can afford any smartphone they want!

    The China crash is not going to effect Apple sales over there. Both the rich and poor still want and will buy quality smartphones. Especially if you use it everyday.

  • New Verizon data plans go contract-free, drop phone subsidies [View news story]
    "seems far better for most use cases"

    You are more than welcome to pay the retail 750.00 for your next smartphone. I will be going with AT&T. They still have two year contract deals on smartphones and their data prices are not that bad.

    Verizon is now nickel and diming customers to death, especially single users! Look at the fine print.

    Also, most customers want a new phone for 200.00 after two years with their contracts. Just like leasing a car, everyone wants the new model. Just try getting a new phone every two years with your new Verizon contract. You better be rich!

    Verizon is going to shed a ton of customers on this stupid move. Their greed is showing through!

  • Is Verizon Finally Taking FiOS Serious? [View article]
    "VZ is nobody's fool.

    Always at least a step ahead of AT&T."

    Don't make us laugh! Verizon are a bunch of greedy fools.

    Verizon is going to lose a ton of customers making them NOW buy their smartphones for full price.

    AT&T still has 2 year contracts with 200.00 package phone deals that Verizon just dumped. And AT&Ts data prices are now WAY cheaper. Verizon is just to dam greedy. Maybe this is great for shareholders, but very bad for the Average Joe smartphone user.

    Run the yearly provider numbers. My next phone may be an AT&T since I am not going to shell out 750.00 bucks to Verizon, when I can get the same iPhone 6+ for 249.00 on a two year contract.

    Verizon just shot themselves in the foot!

    "Verizon will abandon / sell all wireline in 3 to 5 years."

    Hardly, maybe offer a cheaper wifi service, but wifi still has HUGE issues over stable fiber.

    "use much cheaper wireless sytems"

    They already are! Verizon's STBs are as CHEAP and horrid as they GET now! The replacement they sent is a cheap plastic Motorola box(7100 2) with NO display for clock or channels. It is as bad as it can get!

    I wish Apple would just buy FIOS and end the slow neglect.

  • Are Google Investors Too Exuberant Before Apple Introduces Its Next iPhone? [View article]
    "Google search is still miles ahead of bing etc"


    I see you know NOTHING of SEO and Google search. And for that matter, most investors don't either. Google search quality, updates, and their search employees have all been going down hill and leaving real fast the last five years. This is not my personal view, these are the facts coming straight from behind the Google curtain each day!

    I would not invest in evil Google or alphabet if you paid me. Their hobby now seems to be to wipe out as many small businesses as they can, not help find them! You see, if you can't find what you are looking for, you are more likely to click on their horrid ads.

  • How Twitter Could Fit Into Google's Plans [View article]
    Google does not need another hot mess on their plate!

    If anybody bothers watching Google tech news, than you know that they currently are having HUGE technical problems with their search engine updates. Lots of web/SEO people losing faith in Google's so-called "brilliant" people. And Bing is just getting better and better each day. Why buy Google or Twitter?
