  • The Monetization Of WhatsApp Will Catalyze Facebook's Stock [View article]
    The argument, CB, is that most people won't want to lose the contacts they've made on WA or FB, but I don't see that it's difficult to just include your contact details on another service, in your next message, so it's an argument I don't buy. I could imagine myself paying a subscription for a better service, but I can't imagine what that "better service" could be, so again, it's a no go. As for text messages, what's wrong with e-mail?

    Are "chinesses" perhaps related to the Chinese, A4?

    Would this be since they ditched IE and it's host of famous back doors, A2? I think it's a bit early to determine if their new browser is really any better in this respect!

    Ownership doesn't always translate as control, Sp. All a share holder can do is sell the shares, if a buyer can be found, which is just water off a ducks back to the executives who really control things!

  • NOK/ALU rally as German automakers' HERE bid reportedly gets support [View news story]
    Ah, but do Apple fans, TB? They tend to assume that anything associated with Apple is the best available, and there are an awful lot of them...

    All german companies, dd; maybe they are planning on WW111, in anticipation of Putin's moves?

    Ah yes; I missed Mercedes, but we're still short.

    RTR, are you addressing anyone, or any post, in particular? It would be easier for us to follow your contribution if you use the "Reply" button, or else name the author you are responding to.

    Alicia Keys turned out really well, huh, tg? They'd do better to hand out phones to some selected big name execs for a month, with the option to buy it at the end of it. Then we'd find out for sure if they are as good as some claim. Nothing beats a free period of acclimatisation, to sell a new product...

    The link works here in France, but is still subscriber only.

    stt; this is lifted from the second paragraph: "That compares with the $85.8 million he received in fiscal 2014, of which all but about $1 million was from...". I perceive no ambiguity here!

    Hang on, so $1.2B is 30% of $4B, but if the two car manufacturers are only good for $780M, where does the rest come from? By my maths we're still $1.24B short...

    Michael Blair has it all wrong about the secu smart tablet; whether it is modified by Samsung or BBRY (I've read of both) it is still basically a Samsung device, and it is Samsung that will be the main beneficiary if it sells, leaving BBRY no more than the crumbs.

  • Facebook Should Merge Messenger And WhatsApp [View article]
    The puzzle is that so many assume the more expensive product is somehow better!

    Can't their databases be merged, so that a user of either can talk to any other? They could still retain separate identities.
