  • Nielsen research: Two in five households have video streaming service [View news story]
    I'm most amazed that anyone could watch 4 hours and 51 minutes of anything per day. On average. No wonder >40% are on the dole.

  • U.S. eases travel restrictions to Cuba [View news story]
    I tend to think the influx of investment capital as well as greatly increased tourist trade (loss of tourists about whom the world does NOT revolve notwithstanding) will result in one hell of a Cuban boom.

    Going to be alot cheaper to get to Cuba from Miami than London.

  • Reports of escalation in Ukraine send markets south [View news story]
    Ukraine doesn't claim to have shelled the "humanitarian" convoy, but an incursion by a Russian column of military vehicles instead. Also been reported that the Russians have shelled Ukraine troops across the border.

    That said, the only thing sure so far is that nobody knows anything.

  • Pandora Grasping At Straws [View article]
    P and Spotify hardly "compliment" each other. Ever since I started paying for Spotify several months ago I haven't listened to Pandora once. In fact, I deleted the app from my phone. I have found my experience is not unique, as just about everyone I know has done the same thing.

  • Pandora Has Power [View article]
    Spotify is growing like a weed, and will definitely cut into P marketshare. I know 5 folks that within the last 3 months switched to Spotify and all rave about how much better it is (including me).

    I'd be careful buying the stock of a company that has a competitor with a plainly superior product.

  • Housing Starts [View news story]
    It appears that the major jump was not in homes, but in rental property starts. Single family home starts rose 0.8%.

    Actually, Bush1 invaded Panama. Just for the sake of historical accuracy.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]

    Garbage. Let's see where you head for healthcare if/when you get a serious illness. Good luck with that.

    But, hey, at least you are correct: we need the government to get involved in every daily problem. Because it has been soooo effective at improving education, healthcare( gov't has been meddling since at least the 1950s), energy . . . .
