  • Microsoft apps pre-installed on Galaxy S6; new Lumias launched [View news story]
    Interesting news! Microsoft plus Samsung could be a formidable factor in the fight for mobile device share. Samsung could easily launch a S6 with Windows 10. Microsoft's new Lumia 940 due in May with Windows 10 could be a great top end device with SD 810 onboard but the rest of 2015 could be about Microsoft devices with Intel's x3, x5 and x7 inside. How about those Microsoft store universal apps running on Xbox One with windows 10 onboard?

  • Barrick Gold Earnings Review And The Way Forward [View article]
    ABX's challenges are reducing debt and gold price bottoming, opportunities are gold prices gong up and finding deep pocket partner for Pascua Lama project. I still think a Chinese partner for PL at 49% for several billions would be the answer and that gold will eventually decouple from the USD once the world realizes that the US is the real currency manipulator. I'm buying the stock and selling Jan 2017 $17 calls for $1.50-$2.00 to generate 14-40% for 24 months. If either of the really positive events occur, gold goes up or PL partner found, then I'll go long w/o covered calls.

  • FCC vote: And now the congressional hearings [View news story]
    We need net neutrality so we do not end up paying $120 per month for 1 Gb of bandwidth that's slowed down by Netflix and TWC cramming the web full of reruns while we pay another $120 a month for cable reruns basically competing with ourselves for bandwidth.

  • FCC vote: And now the congressional hearings [View news story]
    It all depends on whether the government you are talking about is for and by the people or those greedy Republican capitalists the are for and by big business. We did not lose free TV because of government regulation we lost it because of big business influencing Congress to give away our TV bandwidth to the mobile carrier operators so they could sell us $600 dumb phones.

  • FCC vote: And now the congressional hearings [View news story]
    Well not really, if the US Congress becomes deadlocked, 100% assured, then the FCC will have their way. That means the big boys will not be able to screw us like they did by stealing the "free" TV bandwidth for their cable reruns, endless advertising and wireless dumb phones.

  • Investments In Gold: An Academic Research Review [View article]
    The key question to gold investing is if and when gold prices will be decoupled from the USD. The FED has just finished 5 years of currency manipulation and the US Congress is now blabbering about adding currency manipulation regulations (China) to pending trade bills. It's easy to see that a large part of the world including China, India, Russia and South America would love to decouple their future from the USD. China's the key to this event happening with future US policy being the driving factor. If the hypocrites in the US Congress continue to see others as currency manipulators after the US almost destroy the world's economies 5 years ago with CDO and MBS paper and the FED responded by counterfeiting $4-8 trillion in US then gold will eventually decouple from the USD.

    Intel's being really mum on 10nm while Samsung and TMC are gushing about their progress and that's had real negative impact on Intel. I think Samsung's using the same smoke and mirrors they've used with 14/16nm. Samsung's advertised 10nm node is really 12nm or bigger. I do not expect MWC to be the game changer. It's going to take SoFIA LTE and Windows 10 refresh to do that.


    This is an interesting side story!

    I suspect it's going to be the details on Atom x3, x5 and X7 plus SoFIA 3g/4g and how all that will play out at 14nm node. How many cores and what architecture plus do they follow Qualcomm and mix slower and faster cores when bursting and idling? Maybe we'll find out about SoFIA LTE 14nm details? How about real devices with any of this Intel Inside? It will also be interesting to see Microsoft's new Lumia models but we won't see the Lumia 940 until May, 2015.

    Corvette, Hellcat, Shelby GT500 or dual-motor Tesla? I'll take the Shelby GT500 that makes real muscle car sounds and produces great engines fumes. My little 2004 Cobra SVT only has 470hp but it only weighs 3665 lbs. It's a lot faster then my one owner 1970 Mach 1 351c! Of course it you want real speed feel try my 25" Nordic 496c at around 80mph on a calm lake.
