    "consists of just over 110 hotels with over 22,000 in the non-prime lodging segment."

  • Steve Ballmer: Missing In Action? [View article]
    Steve Ballmer is just as capable of hurting the Clippers as he was Microsoft. He knows even less about professional sports than he does about technology.

    Actually, Bats, I have known of several deaths that occurred as a result of military servicemen being too close to a radiating radar or microwave antenna.

  • It may take arbitration to get 1st-place Dodgers on the air [View news story]
    Same kind of crap dish and Fox pulled over "local surcharges" for the Atlanta Braves.
    One reason I am no longer a Dish customer. Hope Netflix and the like put all of them out of business.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Tax Inversions, Solar Tariffs, Samsung Delay [View article]
    Revenues are not the problem. Current tax receipts are at an all time high (12% above the previous peak in 2008).

    RSX still ~20% above it's March lows. Nowhere near enough hatred yet. European's still paying lip service only to sanctions.

  • Can Microsoft's Satya Nadella Learn Anything From GE's Jeff Immelt? [View article]
    If Nadella needs a role model for how to improve a company, he should ignore Immelt (an under performer IMO) and instead take a good look at Dave Cote of Honeywell.

  • Barnes & Noble's Split Doesn't Fix Underlying Problem [View article]
    B & N remains clueless with respect to online sales. I used to use them regularly for both dead tree and e-book purchases, but finally became frustrated with their user hostile website and complete disinterest in improving it. Amazon has benefited from their loss. Sold what B&K stock I held at the same time & have never looked back.

  • Kinder Morgan Energy Partners' (KMP) CEO Richard Kinder on Q2 2014 Results - Earnings Conference Call [View article]
    "Now Cutter is the world's third-largest producer of natural gas." Don't know who wrote this, but they really need to get a proof reader, or better yet, learn to spell the countries they mention. It's Qatar, not Cutter...
    Very unprofessional error.

    Id rather they didn't err at all, but their track record (and that of economists in general) is pretty dismal ...

    You are no longer an independent Nation if you agree to use someone else's currency. Just ask the Greeks and the Cypriots...
