    Yes, LT but they are kinder, gentler dictatorships now... To your #2 point we are stable politically because there are no choices, we have the spend more party or the spend even more party. Spending $2B an hour to be completely ineffective and create a unsustainable kluster of epic proportions.

    You mean we can just keep the printing presses running 24x7! I guess that is "good" since it is the only strategy we have....

  • Buy Sprint: Results Prove Turnaround Is In Progress, And Business Is Healing [View article]
    Very interesting at this price and down almost 50% it may be a play. To make a difference management has got to stop thinking "we're number 3, we're number 3" and break out of the box, they should have moved on T-mob much quicker, Qcoms spectrum, other acquisitions they missed etc they need to act like they want to be #1 or they will not get very far.

  • Still No Sign Of Recession Risk In Latest Jobless Claims Data [View article]
    Where do I begin.... The BLS numbers are whatever the regime in power says they are, they have never been a real number. They do not show under-employed, part-time, unqualified and elapsed claims. To base a guess on an imaginary number and come out with an answer is not a good analysis. People who build Ipads for $1 a day are in high demand ask anyone in the US mortgage sector, construction or related industries how they feel about a recession.

    Wow, the take away from dot-com 101 is that the number of subscribers does not equate to revenue. FB has no way of monetizing whatever it is they do, now your pulling a rabbit out of a hat because "mobile" is the future. FB is part duex. Yahoo was a $50B stock to.....(AOL anyone?......)

  • Facebook Valuation Investigation [View article]
    Let's see in 18 onths if FB is still worth more than BoA and McD, LOL! Lies, damn lies and Wall st IPO's no doubt the prospectus was signed off by the same firms that guarateed CDOs..... it is amazing to see that not a single analyst has said anything negative about this bubble. Yahoo was the NBT at one time to.

  • Facebook Bullishness Is Unwarranted [View article]
    This one could be interesting even the thought of FB being valued anywhere near a blue chip stock with 12-99 quarters of functioning is scary enough. Its the new, new, new, new economy. People seek out stocks like this being more afraid that they will miss out on the next big thing than that the fundamentals clearly say stay away. Because the alleged comfort and familiarity of FB everyone will feel that they have more insight than their fellow investor, a recipe for doom. Look how many people could not get enough of Netflix. GS and Bono will make bank but not too many others.

  • Best Buy: The Writing Is On The Wall [View article]
    Yes BBY is dead. So is retail in general with a 2.2% margin it is only a matter of time on bad bad quarter and boom. Is there any diferentitation between the "electronics" section at Wallymart and going to BBY? no not enough if any at all. The days of getting "advice" from retail staff (who knew less than you did about the product) for an electronics purchase are over. I dont know how Radio Shack has hung on this long with batteries and adapters but so be it.

  • Facebook vs. Google+: Social Marketing and e-Commerce Fight to the Death [View article]
    Bubbles rarely pop gracefully. 700 million users and no way to monetize it, same story different decade, FBs core users do not have any money either. Goldman wants you to believe it's worth billions as long as they make 5 pts on it, then they'll offer up Webvan 2 and son of Flooz. Google makes money, FB is a toy.

  • Why the Rumors of Research In Motion's Death Are Not Exaggerated [View article]
    CK depending how much damage was done on the June sell off Rim may not have hit bottom, less sales or delayed sales from a wait and see what happens attitude could hurt them all over again. Rim cant run Rim, trying to run Siri is a really dumb idea, since 12 months after a tablet was introduced they were unable to handle a decent product launch much less run another company of which they have no experience with. ( heavy consumer, content, automotive )

  • Why These 3 Stocks Deserve a Long Look [View article]
    Guys for the last time bandwidth is getting cheaper and cheaper not scarcer, double nothing is still nothing. All this cloud talk is ludicrous if you make a deal for bandwidth today in 12 months you can say I want 30% more and I want to pay 30% less for it and so on. L3 is long haul fiber, not last mile wireless big difference.
