  • Google is looking to solve expensive roaming charges [View news story]
    You're free to invest that way.

    However to be realistic any investment is going to take months or years to start showing a profit.

  • What's In The Box? Nothing Good, Apparently [View article]
    Pennies on the gig?
    I pay $0.01/gig/month on Amazon for Glacier storage.
    If I wanted it to have higher availability I could pay $0.03.

    That's already pennies per gig.

    It's an also ran service.

    Dropbox is a much better business concept.
    They've got a brand, and sell a commodity product. A commodity they don't actually provide.

  • Illustrating My Decision To Invest In UPS [View article]
    I've dealt with many different shipping companies.
    It really comes down to the local staff, particularly good drivers, and I'd assume their supervisors.
    UPS was horrible and Purolator were great in my last city.
    Once I moved, Purolator was horrible (unforgivably so) and UPS is AMAZING.

    It's easy to focus on your local issues, you really have to get a broader and more representative sample.

  • WSJ: Google building virtual reality version of Android [View news story]
    Google is okay trying lots of things and failing often. They'll even do it publicly. Apple tries a lot of things, just not as publicly.

  • Apple's Dow Inclusion Good For All Parties [View article]
    Your post is a bit over enthusiastic. I've seen that before on other companies. AAPL is just a company with a single really popular product. When the iPhone becomes less cool and popular, they'll have serious problems.

    Cardboard is decent and super cheap. It is going to be hard for anyone to justify more expensive options, particularly with the next generation of phones.

  • Micron Technology (MU) Presents at Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference (Transcript) [View article]
    My summary. They see the best margin opportunity from 3d TLC, which is going to be consumer or user level SSD. Other 3d nand is going to be primarily performance gains. Mobile dram demand growth is very broad based, not confined to any particular portion of the market.

    Some people don't know that. Or even what Linux is.

    Closed systems are usually buggier and less secure.

    There is a reason OSX incorporated BSD code.

  • Apple iOS Versus Android: Is This The Turn Of The Tide? [View article]
    The Android phone makers made a few billion in profit off cell phones last year. I don't see how that signals impending doom.

  • Apple iOS Versus Android: Is This The Turn Of The Tide? [View article]
    The only reason I'd switch to an iOS phone is it offered a vastly superior user experience than Android. Right now Lollipop is much more usable than iOS 8,and I have both.

  • Apple iOS Versus Android: Is This The Turn Of The Tide? [View article]
    I love my Nexus 5, it has been an excellent phone. My iPad is also an excellent product, but I find that iOS to be m check more problematic.
    When streaming a video, why does it stop part way through to tell me my storage is almost full?

  • Micron Investors Should Follow Baupost's Lead [View article]
    I slightly increased my oil exposure in January. Up nicely on that one too.
    It was a slight increase because I didn't have the stomach for anything more than a sliver of a position.

  • Why Google Is Winning The Wallet Wars [View article]
    Apple Pay was actually working in October.
    AFAIK Apple pay works just fine with a standard NFC terminal, and it's just Apple blocking the use of non US cards on Apple-Pay.

    My comment was really directed at "Android is for poor people who lack the discretionary income to justify stores buying the NFC readers".

    Almost every store already has an NFC reader, it's been a standard for several years. The above comment suggest that NFC deployment isn't as widespread.
    It's of general investing interest if NFC or other technologies aren't deployed as widely as I assume they would be.
