  • Facebook to beam Internet from space  [View news story]
    Good points all, but mobile phones in the same areas have tended to bring greater prosperity to all in the loop; I’d expect internet to do more of the same, though it’s an inferior grade. It won’t matter for most things, but a flash crash, for instance, would be over and done with before even an automatic stop-loss could get through via satellite, and perhaps even with the lesser (but significant) delays via drone or balloon.

    Not a neccesity, no, but far more empowering than any luxury!

    It’s not so much the connection speed but rather the delays; even if the satellite is in low orbit, it is impractical for anything resembling high speed trading.

  • Facebook: Priced For Perfection At $92?  [View article]
    It's a good question, beth; there are an awful lot of them, even if they are dwarfed by FB users as a whole. As far as I'm concerned, then, as a whole, it should be filled in, but that's just me...

    What I'd like to know is; does he get the salary of both positions? If not, and one salary is saved, then that is the only good thing I know of, about joint CEO/ chairs!

    Calculating quickly, that would amount to circa 50% per annum, so nothing to grumble about!

    The price will rise in time, it's a question of when, so short term calls wasn't really the best option.

    Yeah sure; lets close down more branches, so senior execs can have another million in bonuses...

    I'm quite sure I've never made anyone "misrible"! Seriously, which was the "outstanding point" you refer to? I did find it an interesting read.
