  • Jobsian Reflection In Google's Glass [View article]
    I believe two major game-changers for mobile computing, and maybe computing in general, are user interfaces: voice recognition and displays. Voice recognition is well on its way and I would hope would be a major input option for all devices in the near future. As for displays, I've often wondered why each device we use has to have its own display. Displays add to the cost and size of the device, reduce battery life and are difficult to see in bright sunlight. Obviously a remote HD display would require a lot of bandwidth but low-res images like icons and text would work fine with today's technology. I think Glasses will take off and its offspring may well give device manufacturers a cheaper "non-display" option to sell.

  • The Lesson Some Investors Never Learn: Keep It Simple [View article]
    You forgot one very important element in trading large quantities of cheap options - commissions. I pay $10 + $1.75 per contract (certainly not the best deal I could get), so your 250 contracts would cost about $447 to buy AND sell. In your first example, you wouldn't even bother selling the 2.50 calls - just walk away for a total loss. In the second, your $1000 profit on the 2.50s would be eaten by $894 in commissions, reinforcing the logic behind buying the 2.00 calls.

    Good stuff Travis! I've been trading options for a long time, but this is something I know very little about. How can I learn more?

  • Searching for Gains With Yandex and Baidu [View article]
    I too am long YNDX and bought the stock after talking with a friend who works there. The company's future depends on attracting and keeping the best and brightest, and YNDX has concentrated on providing an all-inclusive work environment that encourages productivity by making it easy to work 24/7 when the employee wishes. He also mentioned that YNDX is very strong in Turkey and has targeted Turkish search as a key market.
