  • Vivendi draws $1.1B in selling out of Activision stake  [View news story]
    This means there was immense buying pressure in the market for the stock to sustain dramatic gains amid such huge insider selling of 5.7%. This should allay investor fears of any future dumping.

  • Report: Google creating virtual reality unit to battle Facebook/Oculus  [View news story]
    Now I'm wondering, If VR tech is so special/difficult, how is the playing field so crowded already? everyone from htc (oem) to G to Msft to oculus to magic jump is entering. Barriers must be lower than I thought. But still No one can match apple's economy of scale in R&D here to design a new category. Esp. Bc Apple R&D is so efficient. Could be Hard for others to match performance or UX with less money.

    I would be surprised if Apple did not invest heavily in this emerging technology and have something great waiting in the lab.

    I don't immediately see the strategy benefit to vertically integrating in commodity distribution. Cost is significant considering the physical goods store struggles to break even.

  • Apple: Peak iPad Mini  [View article]
    Think you misunderstood Neil's points. I found this article illuminating because it provides data to support what I suspected intuitively; the fact apple is well positioned to dole out improvements to the iP+ 5.5" such as shrinking bezels is good to note.

  • 6 Reasons To Buy Google  [View article]
    I worry Google will destroy humanity as we know it with the AGI research Kurzweil is overseeing at deepmind and other AI teams in Alphabet. I don't see any money devoted to discovering friendly AI before AGI gets out of the bag.

  • Will Apple Own The Payments Customer?  [View article]
    Who are the most likely users to sign up for this program? I suspect it will interest the low end and high end customer, but not the middle. Therefore, what net effect would that have?
