  • How Tesla's New Powerwall Battery Will Save Consumers Money On Electricity [View article]
    Why is it always the Powerwall or nothing? I'll bet a lead acid battery array is one third the price. Oh, but that would lead to the "why bother" question. At any rate, the lithium solution seems to be the modern equivalent of an eighteenth century indulgence payment for using too much power from the utilities in the first place.

  • Why I'm Praying For Microsoft's Irrational Sell-Off To Continue [View article]
    Maybe if MSFT didn't borrow billions of dollars while issueing new stock to employees, which they then buy back at market, there would be some value left for shareholders. If I'm wrong about this, does anyone have some numbers?

  • A Comprehensive Look At Tesla's Home Batteries [View article]
    A few months ago, weren't we all arguing about how the Gigafactory wasn't going to be able to produce enough batteries for the cars Tesla was planning to build?

  • The Long Case For U.S. Silica Holdings, Inc. [View article]
    The proppant supplier stocks seemed to be controlled by the devil. Earnings forecasts and yields are big, but the stocks are behaving like pump-and-dumps.

  • After Today's 335 Point Dive In The DOW, A Rebound Appears Likely. [View instapost]
    I don't see how the descending broadening wedge would be bullish. It is so easy for prices to decline when there are no support levels. Is there a candlestick pattern for this? How about feng shui? The caos will probably keep me from trading tommorrow.

    EMES Emerge?
    EMES, HCLP, and SLCA have been under heavy selling pressure. Too heavy, in fact, to warrant buying yet. At what point are they oversold?

  • Can Windows 10 Win Back The Business Community? [View article]
    Microsoft is already way ahead of their audience; a swiss army knife with way too many blades, while doing nothing to educate their users. Windows 8.1 is a good robust OS, but people are still learning how to use workgroups. MS answer is to invent yet another way of getting to the same place, which makes it seem like unnecessary complication.

    Electronics solder does not use silver, it is a 60/40 mixture of lead and tin.

  • How Will Microsoft Monetize Minecraft? [View article]
    It's hard to put a price tag on this 'hearts and mind' acquisition. Microsoft tends to kill off game franchises when they are in charge.

  • More on Microsoft's pursuit of Minecraft [View news story]
    A waste of money now. They should have done it years ago. Go back to working on Flight Simulator, a classic that showed off their programming expertise. Microsoft abandoned the adult gaming market because they couldn't maintain a 90% margin.

  • Microsoft Misses The Big Point With Opera [View article]
    The upgrade for IE is the upgrade that won't install properly everytime I try (Vista). I hide the upgrade now so I guess I'll never know how good it is.
