  • AT&T Saying Goodbye To iPhone Subsidies: Should You Say Hello To The Stock?  [View article]
    Tell your friend that a closed ecosystem is much better for the masses that have no business playing with their products and therefore not letting anyone else into to their system with viruses.
    MS PCs = Virus Magnets (Open Ecosystem).
    Apple OS = Limited to No Viruses (Closed Ecosystem). - I LOVE IT!!!
    This means my computer works more and spends no time at the Geek Squad or other service tech.

  • Seagate (STX -3.6%) and Western Digital (WDC -1.8%) slump after Jim Chanos calls the hard drive makers value traps at the Sohn conference. Chanos, who was bearish on Dell before the bottom fell out of its PC business, calls the hard drive industry "PC with a year lag." "Most people have way too much storage as it is on their laptops and desktops," he adds. Seagate is Chanos' favorite short - he cites margin pressure, accounting issues (Chanos thinks $1B of goodwill from the Samsung deal could mask cash flow issues), and insider selling.  [View news story]
    what Mr. Chanos fails to recognize is that these companies are expanding on their storage business away from just PCs. We all need more back up to save all the high capacity pictures and videos we are taking.

  • Barney Frank and Chris Dodd set a Thursday deadline for reconciling the House and Senate financial overhaul bills. Frank says the timing is necessary to allow Obama to present the package at this weekend's G-20 meeting and so the bill could be signed into law by July 4. Still some big issues to finalize, among them derivatives regulation and which banks should be required to post higher capital requirements.   [View news story]
    great. so lets have them rush a piece of crap bill down the throats of everyone and add all kind of extra stuff that has no biz in being a financial reform bill.

  • Apple (AAPL) will sell its new iPhone in its own retail stores and at Walmart (WMT); now Best Buy (BBY) says it will start to take pre-orders tomorrow. The iPhone will become available nearly everywhere, but customer service offered by other retailers is likely to prove a big dropoff. Apple may be repeating the mistake made when it paired with AT&T (T) as its provider of 3G service.   [View news story]
    verizon had their chance and passed!!! so they decided to partner up with google instead. and those who think that the verizon network will hold up with all of the data drain that the iphone provides to the T network are kidding themselves. the VZ network will suffer as well. why is the 4g netowrk so good on Sprint, because no one uses it!!!
