  • The Legal Battle Between Apple and Nokia Heats Up [View article]
    This is fertile ground for the bean counters, sharks and ambulance chasers, as the the technology complexifies and operable solutions converge to barely distinguishable differences in viability.
    When design is co-opted from the engineers to the lawyers, innovation is surely lost.

  • New Trend: U.S. Households Canceling Cable TV [View article]
    Please inform me about which 'net service(s) will provide equivalent content for mebbe half the cost, and I will switch sooo fast- I'm prepared to update my 'puter to accommodate any of the alternate means. HDMI looks like the preferred interconnect between 'puter and TV - I shouldn't have to watch TV on a monitor.

  • Next Up for Google, Superfast Broadband [View article]
    I have lived in Mountain View CA for decades, and may I say that it is amazing to see the local street light standards now bristling with WiFi antennas along with new fiber optic cable going in regularly along the main drag (El Camino Real). The reason is only now clear, with Google's announcement, something of a surprise when the local economy is in slo-mo and the MV city government has an existing wifi in place, altho of lesser capacity.
    This can only be good news for the future for wider access and lower prices inherent in more competition for the same user base.

  • Think the PIGS Are in Trouble? These 7 U.S. States Could Be Heading for Something Worse [View article]
    Let's get down to the real problem: State and Federal government is under the influence of cocaine and crack.
    Think of the characteristics of the typical addict- irresponsible spending (maxing the CC), poor business judgment where it exists, lack of concern for mate or dependents, narcissistic behavior (true for all things)-
    I could go on, but U should grasp the metaphor by now.

  • Apple: A Look Before Earnings [View article]
    I'm an Apple booster and shareholder, and would cheer on the optimism thru the next two months- however, the overall market is vulnerable to exogenous factors such as China's interest rate bump, and the distinct possibility of a siimiar move by the USA later this year.
    AAPL is stronger than most and their products are fine; just don't lose sight of the likely prospect of big guys, hedge funds et al, acting in concert to sell off to collect profits at the expense of we smaller fish. Refer to DJ '09 chart to illustrate the issue.
