  • Margin compression at Apple (AAPL) is long-term strategy, not a sign the company is losing its competitive edge, writes Kopin Tan in a bullish front-page Barron's article giving the iPhone maker the nod in its battles with Samsung (SSNLF.PK). "Samsung is running ads spoofing the cult of Apple. Samsung knows what it's like to have an image problem."  [View news story]

  • Broadcast news: Fresh data on the habits of TV viewers trashes the idea brought up by industry execs (conference calls: DIS, CBS, NWS) that the declining number of live viewers of TV shows is a result of digital video recorders after both mediums showed generally comparable falloffs in audiences over a month-long period.

  • It's tough to find any market pros to go on the record, says a fired-up Gary Kaminsky, but what they're telling clients is the election was bad news for stocks. The bull market from the 2009 lows was about stocks priced for Armageddon meeting massive central bank stimulus, he says, but that dynamic is played out, leaving the markets to deal with the reality of a weak economy and questionable leadership in D.C.  [View news story]

  • Android Is Dead, Part 1: Why  [View article]
    As an Android owner for the past year I can say I have had no problems with security. Banking and on line shopping has caused no problems as I check my accounts regularly; which you should do no matter what the operating system. I like their apps and I have had no problem with them either, so I don't think android is doomed.
