  • Keystone pipeline to kick off Senate agenda next year [View news story]
    HiSpeed, all this time and discussion and you still do not understand that this has nothing to do with our energy future? Canadian oil, refined in the gulf, shipped overseas as gasoline and fuel oil at market prices. Ever wonder why the Canadians don't just build their own pipelines to the coast and refine it? They are playing us for suckers..we get possible environmental damage, a few hundred jobs, and take all the risk, with NONE of the profits. Put a federal tax of 20% on the oil and I might be interested it. In any case, the State Dept (and then Obama) is awaiting the Nebraska court decision (private property rights!).

  • Ambarella beats by $0.14, beats on revenue [View news story]
    Maybe just take profits since such a terrific rise. I know I set my trailing STOP very tight since you never know how market reacts to earnings, good or bad. Of course AH trading is weird anyway. We won't really know the market until tomorrow morning regular opening. AMBA price probably ahead of itself, and the technical charts show overbought, as part of normal cycle pattern that can last a few weeks.

  • Russia follows OPEC decision, keeps output unchanged [View news story]
    It IS possible that we have some collusion between Saudi Arabia and USA. This and the sanctions will at least put Putin's European adventures on hold, as he tries to rebuild the old USSR.

    If prices drop much further, hopefully the oil sands/push for Keystone (totally political) fades away, which will be very good to the climate change fight.

  • Russia follows OPEC decision, keeps output unchanged [View news story]
    No kidding...consumer confidence and spending had been slowing a bit...this should really be a boost (and thus keep the stock market going up as well)...after all, when Bush invaded Iraq and drove up the cost of oil (which really, until now, has never come back down), that started economic problems around the world which led to the Great Recession...maybe this is a chance to climb out a bit more..GOP won't like it though since they have been fighting any improvements in the economy or good paying jobs, with an eye on 2016.

  • Final chapter written in Toyota unintended acceleration case [View news story]
    Interestingly enough, I just returned from New Zealand (from the USA), where I rented three Toyotas during the vacation. All three had loose floor mats, which were irritating, slippery, dangerous. Why aren't they "bolted" down? Weird.

  • G20 commits to grow economy; Russia isolated over Ukraine [View news story]
    No reason to approve Keystone (never will be a good reason since it only generates a few temp jobs and does NOTHING for our oil independence since it is almost all Canadian oil and is very significant increase in CO2). That said, put a $10 tax on each barrel and I might be interested. He is holding off since there is no reason to piss of environment supporters until the Nebraska court routing case winds up, which might be awhile. The House/Senate votes are all about Louisiana Senate run off race, that is all. Politics. You can vote all you want, but the case has to come to a conclusion in Nebraska first.

  • Nadella talks cloud spending, unveils new Microsoft Azure services [View news story]
    I love all the Cloud crap...they are just what we used to call Web Application Servers...the actual data storage could ALWAYS be at someplace offsite. Amazing how all these companies made all the businesses reinvest again just by changing the names...!

  • CBS announces online subscription service [View news story]
    And, with this and the Showtime announcement, it is be beginning of the end (slow death) for the Sat. and cable companies (of course, cable will raise prices for the internet/ISP they provide, which will help a bit). That is why they are providing more and more original content, because that is where the money will come from (ads).
