    Bottom line, if you can not raise taxes just print more money to keep partying!

    Yep, line the ones that burned down that neighborhood in San Francisco and the one that just dumped 105,000 gallons of crude on Santa Barbara beaches!

    "Farmers" was not meant to be their exact occupation.

  • Reports: Intel launching Skylake in late summer, subsidy for Rockchip CPUs [View news story]
    I hate to say it but I think Intel's CEO is really wrong about Windows 10's impact on PC sales. Maybe he's just hedging Q2 2015 results but I think W10 is going to be huge in H2 2015 and H1 2016. PC vendors are already giving big discounts on devices with 5th gen iCores and it's obvious they're clearing the shelves for 6th gen and Windows 10. If W10 ships in August I might even be tempted to buy a new 15" touch screen notebook with i5-5200 and 256Gb SSD if the price is right and not wait for Skylake. I guess time will tell but I think both Intel and Microsoft are both setting up a huge uptick in device demand.

  • Intel: Wintel Alliance Might Help The Atom X3 Gain More Industry Support [View article]
    bnlitin - There is a good reason that most hedge funds are shorting Intel.

    You really need to understand what "hedge" funds do! They hold both long and short positions in many stocks. Stocks that are volatile because of opposing market sentiments are great positions for selling calls and shorting even if you've also got a long position. I would not put a lot of faith is using hedge funds short positions when making my investment decisions unless you really understand the whole value thesis.

    bnlitin - That's old unit news with wrong losses for 2014. Intel actually sold 46 million Atom Bay Trails and the losses directly attributable to those sales was closer to $2 billion. You need to fast forward 5 0r 6 months.

    Hardware costs $45 for a 7" Android tablet with Rockchip x3 inside?

    The price of all PC's including smart phones and tablets is going to come way down! Somebody's not going to benefit from that?

    Bruce -

    That's good if you get fast LTE but using rural Prescott, AZ as an example LTE is not dependable enough and AT&T bandwidth and hotspot option is too pricey for two people to use it as hot spot for constant notebook use. So we've got DirecTV and Centurylink high speed WIFI but no land line phone. We can't get Phoenix local stations without cable because it's 90 mi away behind mountains. I keep evaluating options to cut DirecTV cable but it's sure convenient to just turn it on for special content shows.

  • Microsoft: Transformation To Cloud And Mobile Implies Strong Growth [View article]
    Great article. The Wall Street analysts that rode Steve Jobs "The PC"s Dead" rhetoric are having to eat that notion. The PC's alive and well in the form of smart phones and tablets that are consuming googles, pun intended, of web content producing demands for more and more cloud products and services. Microsoft spent an entire decade, 2000-2010, focused on building out an enterprise ecosystem while Apple created the mobile PC and app revolution. Google joined in and now it's Microsoft's turn. It's interesting how WS analysts are quick to point out that Google's Chromebook is taking notebook share from Microsoft, around 7 million units in 2015, but also point out that Microsoft's Lumia is a failure shipping only 40 million units in 2014. It seems to me that's a 33 million net increase in Windows devices for Microsoft? If Microsoft can grow their branded devices, Lumia, Surface and Xbox, by 20% a year they'll be shipping over 120 million devices per year by 2018. Microsoft's Xbox is also poised to be a home entertainment server going well beyond just playing single user games. Add all that to Microsoft's every expanding Azure cloud products and services for consumers and enterprises and you have a huge opportunity to invest in the next big shift in real technology. Long COP, INTC and MSFT.
