  • Facebook: A P/E Of 95 And Cheap At The Price? [View article]
    "insiders own less than 0.50% of the company"? Assuming it's a typo, doesn't M Zuck own @40% of it, leaving @10% for all the other employees? That would be worryingly low!

  • Is Oculus The Future Of Facebook? [View article]
    Definitions are somewhat different for hardware producers, and as far as I'm aware, the headsets currently available are still pre production prototypes (and in strangely large numbers, which is not usually a good sign...)!

  • Facebook 2014 Q1 Earnings Preview: Look For Another Earnings Beat [View article]
    "Optimal" is a bit like "truth", ben; that cloud in the sky, ever changing, that can be observed by all, but each according to his different perspective, as JH so aptly demonstrated. Happily, in my game of new product design, it's fairly straightforward; it's when you can't improve one aspect of your solution, without detracting from another! In my case, it usually was worth putting in the effort to get there, as it would have far reaching cost impact in production(etc.) costs and thus, profit. Even then, different people might come to different conclusions on what is optimal (sigh!)...

  • Nokia Patents: A Big Business [View article]
    OK, thanks Sep; it sort of makes sense now, but what a lovely system for the legal profession! Letters Patent where originally intended to give inventors a means of defending their inventions, in order to encourage more, but as ever, those who "manage" it have made sure it operates in a way that primarily benefits, the "management"...

    For any start up, it is still largely guesswork, but I suppose FB can afford expensive guesswork...

    Hadn't seen that one before, ben, but this engineer concurs. Unhappily, my observation of most engineers is that they'll settle for something that just works, when with the right mind set, one can do so much better than that, and with little extra by way of effort!

  • Nokia Patents: A Big Business [View article]
    Lost me here: "Nokia has over 30,000 patents and 10,000 innovations that are patented"? What is the difference between a "patents" and "innovations that are patented"? Anyone?

  • Facebook +1% AH on Credit Suisse upgrade [View news story]
    No need to apologise! Bubbles need someone to pump them up, and there's way too much of this stuff going on. Remember: Cui bono? Why do Credit Suisse and co. give out such "free" analyses? Out of the goodness of their hearts?

    And kids don't, BG? Even if they don't own the money, each new generation seems to have the power to dictate what gets bought, than the previous one. Besides, half of today's kids, are tomorrows moms...

    Now that would be impressive if true, ER, but where did you see that?

    What does it matter, GF, if one has made a profit on the way? I've never been particularly concerned on whether or not I'd made the right call (given the plethora of unknowns, that affect prices nowadays, it's mostly down to luck, anyway!) nor of maximising profit, and find it easier to generate said profit by trading, than by holding. Do longs crave the tension and excitement it generates? I get more than enough of such things in other aspects of my life, thank you!

    He's no screwball, G, the real question is; will he be a successful genius, and that is a tough one to call, so I concur with your reservations. As for the "nearby friends" thing, I suppose it could lead to an amicable hook up, if you were traveling for some reason? Holidays, for instance, are usually more fun with company...
