  • Obamacare signs up 8M [View news story]
    Pretty easy to sign people up when _it's required by law_ and it's something like health insurance, which is _life and death_ in many case. What a joke.

  • Jefferies: Apple negotiating $100 iPhone 6 price hike with carriers [View news story]
    @sam, agreed that that is their strategy. But no telling if it will work in perpetuity.

    I don't know if this is the ticket of course, but MSFT is doing the right thing to bolster the inevitable decline in the personal (or whatever it's called now) division's rev.

    The problem is, for both Apple and Samsung, phones are just too good across the board. There is nothing compelling enough from any maker to warrant such prices. With so many good lesser makers producing very nice phones, margins simply can't hold up.

  • Doctors group criticizes EPA's lack of disclosure in its experiments [View news story]
    @tricky, If you want to throw the 10-11 year line around, why not throw the ABC News article's 40 year line around? We have never seen this level of testing without disclosure and consent, and with the Orwellian, collectivist ends-justifies-the-means argument when caught, on top of the IRS investigating opponents, the rewriting of health and immigration laws, etc. The totality of this administration we have never seen before.

    @tricky, ABC News/AP on this: http://abcn.ws/1kR7a2h

    left leaning site: http://bit.ly/1kR77DG [has photo of the exposure chamber]

    As a centrist, you're being lulled into rejecting the content of the news based on its source. This is how the dominant media operates: ignore or downplay a story, then discredit it based on the fact that "only" some other media covers it.

    Use your own mind. Is this consistent with the government-centered mindset that dominates the Obama admin? Does the EPA's response, defending exposing individuals for the collective good, strike you as Orwellian?

    It's worth a fair discussion without dismissing the story because it's being little reported.

    @tricky, it seems these were 2010 and 2011 experiments on people. http://bit.ly/1fzKrrt

    There is no difference between the thinking in the Obama admin and totalitarian regimes. That is, the right, decency, and inherent value of a single human is worth nothing compared to the collective ideal of the moment. Elections, law, rules, and the Constitution are pesky impediments to their goals. We the people are eggs, and they're making an omelette.

  • Tesla And Texas: A Solid Plan For The Gigafactory [View article]
    @freedom, where is the future market for Tesla cars? When you add west coast, east coast, TX, Asia, and Europe, I'd guess more cars will go out of the port of Oakland over time. Also TX as a red state is not long. Demographics indicate a CA-like future sooner rather than later. Not that NV is much better in that regard, but the TX advantage there is not long for this world.

    @stanO5, no rare earths in the S of course. But if Musk is thinking 30 years ahead to the electric transport equivalent of Silicon Valley, rare earths will be part of the equation for the industry that might bloom there one day.

    Agreed on NV. Too many reasons it makes sense. 1, cheap land, taxes. 2, close to CA HQ. 3, renewable energy in abundance. 4, potential future rare earths nearby.

    @mike, how does the stock price move on earnings when earnings are taxed so heavily?

    @big bad, no, I directed that toward @jake's "obama restored our honor" comment. You and I agree.

  • After 25% Pullback, Lenovo Looks Extremely Interesting [View article]
    Nice article, thanks. Got into Lenovo recently for a myriad of reasons and am pleased at the long term. Short term was a hit of course, but that's fine in this case.
