  • Why Facebook Is Poised To Win In The Rapidly Shifting Ad Landscape [View article]
    Good points overall, bj, but you shouldn't look for honesty from Hollywood. In fact it's safer to distrust everything you see in a film, as their only real interest is how good the story is! Zuc seems to me an innately honest person, even if he is inclined to take liberties.

    Those guys he's supposed to have "scammed" FB from? They successfully sued him for several million $ (which isn’t bad for whatever help they contributed to writing the original software) and then tried to sue him for yet more, regardless of the fact that their contribution to FB's subsequent financial success has been zero; how honest is that?

  • Report: Uber bids up to $3B for Nokia's HERE unit [View news story]
    Good point AH; I hadn't considered that aspect. Maybe I should suggest it to my housing association, who have hundreds of empty properties but no apparent plans to do anything with them (despite a large waiting list...)?

    That's so, bw, but the fact remains that the World has moved on; BBRY would not have paid good money for the rights, if they had no plans to profit from them.

  • BlackBerry, T-Mobile Reunion Will Be A Catalyst For Both Companies [View article]
    Only if it works, Prof, and the public at large seem strangely resistant to anything BBRY tries. You may have confused me with others, as I think I'd remember if I'd used that phrase "fifty million times"...

    How so? You know as well as I that QNX used to be open source, and it's near impossible for BBRY to get any revenue from anything launched back then. They may end up doing better with more recent stuff.

    Sorry to be picky, HE, but your "new word" is redundant, as it says the same as "egomania".

  • Here's Why Nokia Is Buying Alcatel-Lucent [View article]
    Yes, they seem to go out of their way to be unpleasant to the "peasants" don't they? As for the way they manage production lines, the workers might as well be serfs! Sorry I didn't respond earlier, but I wasn't notified of your post, for some reason. I wonder if we're considered seditious?

    It'd use up any remaining inventory, EZR. Besides, should they become popular with carrier support (always a possibility, if not guaranteed) they can be produced again; neither are particularly out of date (and were built from previous generation hardware, anyway) nor does either have direct competition, and could well capture a niche!

    Try to avoid those double negatives, MF; they don't really contribute anything, except complication.

    I'll concede it's a net positive, but is it too little too late?

  • Why You Want To Own Facebook Rather Than Google [View article]
    Would you claim that ad revenue has "real substance" cash? To me it is something over which FB has no direct control, and which can be switched of easily and quickly. What then?

    I guess it'd depend on the communities, AH; AirBnB seems to me a good way of using rooms that would otherwise remain empty, but I must admit that, when I read of NewYorkers charging hotel-like rates for their spare rooms, and making a great living by doing so, it is a bit disturbing. There again, I find hotel prices disturbing too!

    Thanks Mr. K; CH's link didn't work for me, either! You are right; it ARE a pity they don't generate much revenue...

    Tax is only paid on profit, so how is it a "burden"?

    The whole(!) thing may not be too(!) complicated, fm, but it does seem a bit daunting to the uninitiated. The moral is that study is required, and one shouldn't get involved until completely confident that one knows how it works! Even then, a couple of years making dummy plays on a practise board would not be a bad idea...
