  • BlackBerry: Don't Try To Catch This Falling Knife... Yet [View article]
    Will Chen grasp the not so fine point that products only sell when effectively advertised? If not, it is destined for oblivion.

  • Bank Of America: Dead Money At Best [View article]
    A lot of pundits are echoing your take, RL, and I'm not knocking it, but I do think 8$ is a bit optimistic. I'm more inclined to expect resistance at just under 10$, if only because of psychological reasons, regardless of how well the bank is really doing, because the public are no longer panicking over the prospect of a financial meltdown (not that we are really any safer than we were five years ago; it's the perception that counts). TBTFs have a different set of rules, don't they?

    Why even consider buying back cheaper,TQR? That you've lost money on a particular stock is no reason whatsoever to try and recover it on the same stock, so look for something safer to spend your money on. As for holding, that's entirely down to whether you think it'll climb back or not, and I can't help you with that one, but as it's BBRY, I'd deep six it anyway, as there are too many shady deals going on, and this is not going to be at all predictable, anytime soon!

    There's an interesting article in this weeks Time (european version) about the deep net, and TOR multilayered encryption, which doesn't so much encrypt the message, but rather make it impossible to determine the address of the sender (which amounts to pretty much the same thing). I don't see why the same technique can't be applied to phone calls (OK, it does require a lot of dedicated severs, which in turn may slow calls down)? I had no idea about the existence of this "other" internet", so I found it quite fascinating!

    That's an interesting idea, jo, but would it be workable? It might start like that, and maybe even be well intended at the offset, but personnel change, so how long would it be before a new chinese big boss starts leaning on whoever is in charge of security, who may not, in any case, be committed to the original intent?

    Why? Because a smack in the kisser might offend? I don't think it really matters, if he's going to make a real effort to sort this pup out, especially the atrocious marketing, as he'll be on airline jets most of the time

    Yes, that seems strange to me too, Lo, when he's not even on the board any longer, but I guess it's just more shady backroom deals; business as usual...

    BB10.2 is getting very good write-ups, as is the Z30, though it's smaller than I would have liked, and doesn't have a great camera, but never mind all that, yo; you forgot to post in broken English again.

    No Red; "ad hominem" is to attack the person and his/her qualities (or is it that white rap star? I get a bit confused myself, sometimes...)

  • Bank Of America Could Be On Sale Soon, Again [View article]
    Why do you keep banging the same drum, aa? He more than doubled his money, at a time when no one knew for sure what the future would bring, so what's to be sore about? Any fool can be wise with hindsight!

    Yes, whilst the Dick Fulds keep raking it in, and getting away with it! Governments are supposed to manage these things, but they are evidently in the pockets of the Capitalists, and so talk the talk, but when it comes to walking the walk, suddenly the lobbyists' opinions matter most. What a stupid system; elect people who don't know what they are about, who then follow the advice of guys paid by vested interests! Aint Democracy great?

    Mysterious, isn't it Brian? For instance, how do they know "teens don't report the right data on their profile"? If they do have a way of determining the right data, why don't they just use that? Methinks excuses are being invented, here!

    Whatever, it's still only half of Apple's. Interesting though, that Nokia just lost their n° 1 position in internet usage?

    That's the way, heli, but shouldn't it be obvious that when professionals give out free advice, it's likely to be worth just as much as you paid for it?
