  • Why Apple TV Is Fighting For Survival [View article]
    I own a small suites hotel that is stuck with Comcast for the last 11 years. I've got fiber w/ 1Gbps, but I can't cut the cable as there are too many guests that watch HBO and ESPN on cable. We have to "program" the boxes as there are many defective ones or we install new equipment or a guest switches the one of two remotes running "tv" and the thing goes haywire.

    I am postponing a decision to switch to Dish as soon as I heard Apple was getting their TV act together. I am imagining something very straightforward. Am I expecting too much?

  • Why I Am Finally Bullish On Zynga [View article]
    Totally agree Simple, ZNGA is the leader in mobile gaming with a CEO that's looking at the future, not the quarter's results. They will get it right eventually. It is a lot of hard work. Long and strong.

  • Unwinding The Mother Of All Carry Trades? [View article]
    Thanks for the explanation of the carry trade. It helps to review the subject matter as it's very esoteric to me.

  • More on Apple's Web TV: What about NBC, basic pay TV channels? [View news story]
    So why watch CNBC?

    Is it giving you good money making advice? Or is it just entertaining talking heads distracting you from your business? There is more "fluff, distraction and wasted time" on CNBC too, but it's the "fluff, distraction and wasted time" you must enjoy to not notice how much BS is on that show.

    Cut the cable completely and be more focused!

  • Apple launches very thin/light 12" retina MacBook [View news story]
    The transformer heats up pretty well too. I think I could cook an egg on it, just need to figure how to turn an egg on an Apple.

  • Zillow's Data Does Not Bode Well For Future Case-Shiller Releases [View article]
    apberustdisvet, the housing bust of the 2000s was a speculative frenzy driven by cheap money and the greed of all participants, banks and borrowers. What is a normal market does not include "everyone" as housing is not the best purchase for "all" people. That was political reasoning justifying loose lending.

    In one of the most expensive markets in the nation, Orange County, CA, housing recovered because there is a local economy that can support it. True with every other recovered markets. Real estate is local.

    If presumed first time buyers are overburdened, then maybe they should pay down their current debt before buying a house that could create a bigger burden when they decide to move. The middle class should not be defined by home ownership.

    And short away on the builders, because they understand the market better than you or I, and have survived one of the biggest RE busts in their lifetimes.

  • Rig idling near 20-year high, offshore drillers say [View news story]
    This is the time you buy as the prices are low. What's not to understand about "buy low"? You think the industry is going to disappear; or RIG and ESV are going to fail; or oil will go the way of dinosaurs as we finally harness solar power and junk all gasoline motors!

  • Transocean CEO steps down [View news story]
    What are you afraid of here? Ask yourself. You already have dead money in RIG. Buy at the bottom. Are you afraid your money will be dead here if you do? I'm buying, and all the negativity here is pointless drivel of old men complaining of the present situation and being afraid to act. Old men complain, it's a given.

    Null123etc., what "...problem in the management runs deep - there is no obvious internal candidate, top management is divided and incapable..."

    Do you really have insight into the inner workings of RIG or, with your first comment, nullify yourself.

    TK, politics works in mysterious way, like the hand of God. Is there any apriori proof? No, but shit happens.

    DavidLMO, if I'm worth 100,000 and increase my net by 100,000, I've done 100%. If I'm worth a million, that 100,000 is only now 10%. Do the math, rate of growth and absolute growth are different. China on an absolute scale is still growing phenomenally, but because it's gotten so large (2nd or 1st largest in the world), it's rate of growth has dropped. It doesn't mean its absolute consumption has diminished, or its absolute growth is less than the year before. You are talking about %s.

    So true, they are not growing as fast, but they are certainly consuming more. It's not good to use statistics like a reporter.

    ant21b, that's not a dead ant bounce you keep referencing? Gold doesn't get consumed and a lot of nonsense prevails in that market. Oil is consumed, permanently.

    I skimmed through all the comments, and I'll just add a thought. If the Saudis said, "We will cut our production because we will make as much money doing this as producing the same amount at a lower price with our limited resource", what happens to price?

    My opinion is their move is and always has been political. In politics, words can be massaged any way a politician wants, with great effect. They spoke through their SG, who's next to speak up?
