  • Apple's Win Over Samsung Is A Kick In The Teeth For Google [View article]
    Time for GM to sue Ford for copying the "truck" concept; tailgate, cargo area, big engine and all that...

    Agree.

    Let them compete with customers, not in kangaroo courts.

    "Drought to lead to massive losses for insurers"

    Er...losses for taxpayers who don't farm or collect insurance premiums. And after bailing out AIG, we bail out insurers who are supposed to collect premiums to cover loss? Isn't this theft? (Yes).

    "Samsung shares plunge after patent loss to Apple"

    I fail to see how a rectangular touch screen and icons are anything patentable in 2012. There were touch screens and icons in 1992. A really ridiculous bunch of lawyering and judicial punity that only encourages monopolies. Did Apple invent the question mark, too? (uh-oh).

    "Opel denies job cuts"

    Yeah sure. The economies of the world are NOT recovering and everybody knows it. Job cuts are coming, and have been occuring, and will occur. Equities are floated while people are sunk. Brilliant.

    A rectangle and a touch screen are "patents"?

    Oh yes, let's have more monopolies, please.

    Edison stole from Tesla.

    Icons and touch screens were nothing new before the iPhone.

    Apple invented the paper clip and the question mark too, or haven't you heard?

    Ooops, just invited a lawsuit.

  • If Windows 8 Fails Google Will Be There To Pick Up The Pieces [View article]
    Before long the "computer" will be a cell phone that if needed wirelessly connects to a T.V. screen, or a monitor and keyboard.

    Hard drives, towers, even laptops and netbooks will be gone.

    People will still need keyboards and large displays.

    Bullish for Logitech and L.G.

    Not so much for Apple, Microsoft, Google, or any of the old players.

    Short term the problem for Apple and Google is that business and government still run on Microsoft Office applications - spreadsheets, PDF, PowerPoint, Sharepoint, Access, etc. (please don't mention Google docs in the cloud - fine for a college student but...).

    I've been hearing the "Google/Linux are going to take over the world" story for the past 15 years; Apple beat them to it, but Steve Jobs is gone.

    Microsoft is too much of a lumbering Ogre to create it's own hardware.

    User reviews of Windows 8 release candidate have been awful, but I don't see the masses jumping into Chrome/Android O.S. but rather renewed life for Windows 7.

    Consider that growing the population necessitates growing the population; that cycle has to end and there must be a "culling" event.

    Children are expensive, and a huge committment. We shouldn't be surprised that the generations we have trained to be self-focused consumers don't want the burden or responsibility of children. And, birth control is quite cheap and effective so they can have all the sex they want with no concern about consequences.

  • Is Modern Portfolio Theory Dead? Come On [View article]
    Spoken like a true accolyte.

    There is no market or investing when the rule of law is apparently dead (CORZINE, etc.), stocks are valued based on mark to fantasy accounting, and the average investor is the supplier of gambling chips for those who make a living off the casino.

    Reference: flash crash, QE's and $16 Trillion national debt, MBS's, CDO's, and retail investors FLEEING from equities like the plague and historically low volume.

    I realize I am like the person asserting the Earth is round and upsetting the church and it's members - but to talk of theory within the framework of a broken corrupt system is moot.

    "Nevada joins LVS investigation bandwagon."

    What? Washington and Wall Street don't like the competition from the legal casinos?

    Washington and Wall Street have sold out entire generations to China for a fast buck, but are going after Las Vegas Sands?

    "NBC hopes to build on golden Olympics with new shows"

    NBC coverage was horrid, and the vapid commercials for the shallow shows were unrelenting. I won't watch them - on purpose.

    Other news - growth slowing, job cuts, more fraud and chicanery with no jail time but "hearings" full of empty words and stuffed shirts.

    Why do I feel as though I am trapped at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party?

    mpcascio - Agreed, and just wait until the government takes more of what you try to save via higher taxation or outright confiscation.

    Of course, Financial "Advisors" will still get their fee/commission off you for advising diversified gambling at the Wall Street Casino where boys like JON CORZINE are pit bosses.

    MPT = "Please give us your hard earned money; our HFT robots need something to play with. It will only cost you a 1.75% commission, and we SWEAR you will make 8% or more."

    *cough*
