  • Will Apple Ditch Google For Yahoo Search? Never Say Never [View article]
    Google's search is becoming too good for the advertisers to be efficient for the searchers. For example, type an IRS form #, and Google brings a ton of paid tax services, instead of the most direct and useful IRS web site.

  • The Great Unwind - How Is It All Going To End? [View article]
    Please explain the math supporting your surprising perspective quoted from Bill Mitchell:

    Fed deficit is about $1.2 trillion/year and QE is about $1trillion/year, so why the % official US government holdings does not drastically go up?

    Why is America's Economy Stuck In Low Growth?

    It is because huge # of baby boomers are retiring and downsizing. Rid of your big lawn brings the cost and its contribution to GDP to zero. It will take a couple of more years for this process to be completed.

    Why are AAPL and Samsung so cheap? The market is full of momentum players, blindly following the trend.

  • What If Apple Weren't A Tech Stock? [View article]
    Apply is down for one simple reason:
    Too many people have accumulated huge long term capital gain profits in AAPL, which they are eager to cash out before taxes increase..........

  • Google's (GOOG) Eric Schmidt says his company hasn't made any move to provide a Google Maps app for the App Store, in spite of the backlash to Apple's (AAPL) iOS 6 Maps. Schmidt hints, but doesn't overtly state, that Apple hasn't signaled it will approve a Google Maps app. He also refuses to guarantee Google will remain the default search option for iOS - that arrangement has produced huge revenue-sharing payments for Apple, and cemented Google's mobile search dominance. [View news story]
    Two years ago Google Maps similarly misplaced buildings and houses. Apple should not use anything from a thief previously disguised on its board. Apple will surely do everything possible to debug out its own maps. Everything has a beginning even though a beginning is hard.

  • Samsung And Apple: A Necessary Love-Hate Relationship [View article]
    The greatest risk lies in raising a man-eating tiger or poisonous snake in your bed. There is hardly any risk diversifying to other suppliers who have plenty of unused capacities due to the global slowdown.

    As Steve said, "Use thermo-nuclear against thieves (in your boardroom or bedroom)......"

  • Samsung And Apple: A Necessary Love-Hate Relationship [View article]
    Never deal with a known thief twice, let alone an unfaithful servent caught for repeated and unrepented stealing of your most valuable and essential properties! To use such a thief again is like feeding a poisonous snake in your bed. Apple has been cheated once and should ASAP diversify to other suppliers, such as AUO, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (TSM) and GlobalFoundries who have plenty of unused capacities due to the global slowdown.

  • "Come on. This is farce," says tech legal site Groklaw, incredulous Apple-Samsung jurors took only 21 hours to deliberate over a 700-question form one lawyer says would take him 3 days to understand. Groklaw is also unimpressed with contradictory statements from jurors, several verdict inconsistencies, and the fact jurors reached a decision without reading a 109-page instruction form (.pdf). Some lawyers are predicting this case will reach the Supreme Court, due to the issues it raises about UI and design patents. (more[View news story]
    You lawyers just love to make simple issues very very complicate, so as to use endless debating to make more money for yourselves. The jurors did read the instructions and 21 solid hours plus three solid weeks of trial is long enough for a theft case.

    Apple-Samsung jurors deliberated for 21 solid hours, which is equivalent to a typical lawyer's 3 days of 7 hours/day anyway. The jurors also had been listening and pondering with the debate for three solid weeks of trial. This should be sufficiently long to distinguish thefts from inventions.

    Groklaw seems picking bones inside an egg.

  • The San Jose Verdict: Implications For Apple [View article]
    A thief has been caught and Samsung's cheap devices will suffer.
    Some consumers will have to pay more in the near term (for better devices) but the majority will benefit (since we'll have better devices due to the huge incentives given to R&D due to this verdict) and will win in the long run.

    You said "....Court of Appeals has a little over 10% rate of overturning district court decisions" but WSJ said 50%. Why is this large difference???

  • Is An Oil Shock Coming This Summer? [View article]
    The current low oil price is driven mainly by the over-production drive by US and her allies to provide a cushion against possible Iran related supply disruptions. OPEC will cut production once this risk is over and only then the price will hit the bottom. The oil/gold ratio is irrelevant during ths process.

  • How Germany Can Save The Euro [View article]
    Germany benefits from this weak Euro: better exports as well as lower labor and borrowing costs. It is unreasonable for you or anyone else to expect that the Germans would give up these benefits to leave EURO.
