  • Oil: Prices Will Rebound [View article]
    China's economy is not in the gutter it is growing with 6% pr year instead of 10% pr year. The reduction in growth rate has implications on stock prices, commodity prices. But still, an annual growth of 6% in such a large economy must result in increased energy consumption in the long turn (increased wealth causes increased energy consumption).

    If your fictive company can sell assets and still maintain the earning they should do so !

  • Apple And Intel: A Marriage Made In P-Code? [View article]
    How does Apple P-code/bitcode differ from Microsoft .net technology on Windows and Android virtual Java machines ?

    The largest benefit Apple gets is that they can update pieces of the OS with minimal app trouble. Changing processor from ARM to Intel X86 or the other way around would still require a major rewrite of the OS

  • Microsoft: Putting Windows 10 Inside Android Phones Could Seriously Hurt Google [View article]
    I don't the regular users to change OS on their phones. A ROM like this one should make it easy for manufacturers to add a windows phone to their catalogue. Same hardware, only different software and perhaps a higher margin due to a market with less competition.

  • The Future Of Apple Pay [View article]
    As long as it is easy to disable the card and the amount that can be stolen is limited, the risk is acceptable. A smart phone can also be stolen or lost, although fingerprint verification makes stolen iPhones useless. They may also run out of battery.

    Why use a mobile phone when it is easier to use a NFC card !

    In Norway (and probably elsewhere in Europe) banks are issuing credit card/debit cards with NFC and new pay terminals are NFC-enabled.
    Maximum transaction without PIN code is 200 Norwegian crones (about 30 - 35 USD) and a PIN code has to be entered every week or whenever 1000 crones are used (175 USD).

    As long as a mobile phone is more complicated than a card, for both store and user, the mobile phone will loose.

  • Update: Earnings Decline For Ford But The Long-Term Prospects Remain Bright [View article]
    I agree with the idea that a company that sells mediocre products is mediocre investment.
    But look at the future of Ford. In Europe they have launched a new Mondeo, a new Focus and new Transits in all sizes and they all appear to at top in their class. I have postponed a new car purchase, and are buying shares in Ford while waiting for the new Mondeo to appear in stores.

    But, I have to try it properly before buying the car.

  • European car sales gain again [View news story]
    According to the document Opel is up 6.8% and Chevrolet is Down 80% !. This is probably because Chevrolet has been discontinued in Europe.
