  • Facebook - It's The Valuation Stupid (Lessons For Twitter) [View article]
    The sentiment for FB is still strong, it seems to me, but then, three years is a long time; I'd be looking at long term puts (if I had any money...)!

    My reporting of my inability to check on new comments to previously read articles, got me the observation that "We would like to clarify that there might have been a moderation issue with one of the comments, and for this reason the links don't work anymore. We are aware of this bug and it should be fixed soon" (yes, I've had some puzzling deletions too) on Dec 25th. They thank me for my inputs, but the problem persists, so I still have to wait for the e-mail notifications...

    He'd better enjoy it; this is going to be the volatility chap!

    For some reason I can't access that link! Can I take it there's a BBRY in there?

    Well argued, hz, but they are cutting it fine, and they need to take some pretty revolutionary steps to win the notice of potential enterprise customers, like my previous suggestion of putting current inventory on loan to as many IT officers as they can get to agree (starting with Fortune 500 companies and government/military/se... departments) for a month or so, as the products are (reportedly) so good that they should sell themselves, but only once they've been tried, and for long enough for familiarisation. They'd also do better to ditch the carriers, in favour of direct sales on-line, and use their sites to educate any visitors (being the most secure doesn't help when too few people know of it!). Just delivering phones to shops with zero promotional material (as was the case around here) was a disaster waiting to happen!

    Amen to that, kev; introverts tend to think deeply and logically, whilst extroverts are more influenced by emotional cues, so which would you want as a CEO? This current fashion of expecting CEO's to be flashy, confidence inspiring(?) salesmen, is a bit silly; give me a deep thinker every time!

    That's about right, MK, but please forgive me for not remembering the tulip bubble; I was a bit young at the time...

    And eyeballs, if the thief is ruthless enough, so I won't be using anything with a retina scanner, either!

    Not likely; WB buys stuff people want every day (a good plan, if you've enough money that you can live off a steady return) and though it may not seem so to many, I and many others can get through the day quite easily without a smart phone.

    I can't state hear, hear (Sp; please note the correct spelling?) as, as you must have read above, Da, owners love their BB phones. What was that you claimed about it not being "bashing" when it's "the truth"?

    It's what they should have done from the beginning, CH, using their web site to educate their visitors about QNX etc. Just delivering phones to the shops, with zero promotion (which is all I've seen around here) is a complete waste of time and effort!

    I'm still trying to figure out if "still has a few strives to make" is English!

    It would serve the carriers right, Lo; if they were so unhappy with sales of BBRY phones, why didn't they try promoting them, and tell their staff to stop running them down to any potential customer who showed any interest?
