  • Boeing (BA +3.1%) is flying high today after a fire on another Dreamliner last week caused a bit of panic by investors, who feared another possible grounding was on the way. The stock has gained back much of its initial 7% plunge on the news, as flights of the airliner, at least for now, continue unabated. [View news story]

    1) set fire to a 787
    2) buy stock after jittery investors flee
    3) sell two days later after stock recovers.

    Because of this there are a lot of people more or less stuck with their Blackberry, and ready for a hardware upgrade (myself included)

  • Senator John McCain will introduce legislation shortly to overhaul the TV business by giving consumers the option to buy channels on an individual basis (a la carte) - instead of seeing only large bundles as options. The politician will face fierce resistance from broadcast (NWS, DIS, CMCSA, CBS, AMCX, SNI, OUTD, DISCA, VIAB) and cable companies (CVC, CHTR, TWC) but may have a friend in upstart Aereo which has been rankling a few feathers as well.

    If channels become unbundled customers will end up paying the same amount of money but get less for it.

    What I really want it the ability to use whatever kind of set top box I want to access cable networks.
