  • Research In Motion Earnings Preview: $10 Or $20 Next? [View article]
    QNX was bought by $RIMM. I have nothing to substantiate my response, but know that mobile apps are very hard to code. The effort required to code an android phone is not transferable to another existing system, like Blackberry or iOS. Each O.S. and almost every phone feature has exceptions to the required code. With the QNX platform the use of HTML 5 standards allows a better integration from today's platform to tomorrow's "next generation" phone. Once the code is written once, it can be reused with much less modifications, if HTML 5 Standards apply. QNX is also open source code, and will allow for a larger proliferation of existing developers.

    $RIMM earnings call, and for that matter BB10, are not binary events; Life will go on....
    New VP of Developer Relations Alex Saunders was asked if their company was going to be too late with their new phones. I will paraphrase because I can't find the link. He said that the smartphone sector is just at the beginning stages of growth and there is plenty of growth left in the sector.

  • Increasing Profits with Position Sizing [View instapost]
    I was first introduced to Dr. Van K. Tharp's methodology and have stuck with it. There really are a ton of other mechanical ways, though. (As you can tell, I still run into new reading material - See Ralph Vance, Ryan Jones, Tushar Chande, Nauzar Balsara, etc.)

    See my recent post.
