  • Fiat's NatGas Cars Could Solve America's Oil Dependence [View article]
    I tend to agree with T Boone (ala The Pickens Plan) this should be a no-brainer, if we (the USA) don't, we go down as the dumbest guys in the history of the world. Time is right to boost economy, my guestimates is this plan would boost spending power for the average 40k income American by 30-40%.

  • As Apple (AAPL +4%) gets ready to unveil a smaller and cheaper iPad, the education market is taking center stage. Schools and colleges have already begun buying iPads en masse - education-related iPad sales doubled Y/Y in the June quarter - and the iPad Mini launch could accelerate this trend.

  • John Hempton throws in the towel on his Linn Energy (LINE) short following yesterday's acquisition of Berry Petroleum (BRY). It's a swap of what Hempton believes is near-worthless stock for old, but valuable oil assets. Those assets can generate enough cash to keep what he believes is a Ponzi, rolling for many more years. [View news story]
