  • Flash Trading Is Here to Stay [View article]
    The reality of the costs of flash trading make the case for flash-taxing every securities transaction. Ban Goldman and insert Fed. Deficit solved.

  • FCC Takes On Apple and AT&T over Google Voice Rejection [View article]
    Does anyone remember WordPerfect? A superior program, but derailed by Microsoft software "glitches" if you tried to use anything other than Microsoft Word on its operating platform.

    So forget Google apps. When they're allowed on the iphone they won't work.

  • Expect Housing Prices to Continue to Rise [View article]
    In my region (Florida) house prices have risen somewhat in the below-$250,000 market as the inventory of cheaper, market-ready foreclosures dropped following the "foreclosure moratorium." This drop in inventory should be temporary. Many neighborhoods have significant numbers of vacant/abandoned houses, indeed more than those legally foreclosed to date, waiting to hit the market. I think we may be making a bottom, but we have more to work through before any housing rally. "Listings," "inventory," and "foreclosure sales" are only down here because REOs and soon to be REOs have been held off the market. And the volume of high priced homes, with more patient, well-heeled sellers, rises as that market continues to be in a chilly, if not frozen, stalemate.
