I am a interested in ongoing convergence of the digital and physical worlds and how that will determine the winners of tommorrow. I believe that Moore's Law is fueling an explosion of mobile, automation and M to M communication. Companies that interest me are harnessing the exponential efficiency gains of improving backend infrastructure while striving to create a powerful consumer facing brand. These companies know the value of aligning with the right industry players to achieve a win-win situation for all.
I am a sixty-year-old Techie. I am long AAPL and RIMM on the Tech side. I own products from neither company. The majority of my investments are aggressive type with some growth and most income-focused. I am a former Edward Jones employee of some 5 years plus. Invested for the medium term.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker, 62 years old. I'm interested in RIM both as a Medical professional, a therapist who watches not only teens but also adults give up their privacy to social media and at least in the short term damage their potential by posting impulsive comments.
I also have a responsibility to my patients to keep their information private.
This is the reason that I have tremendous faith in RIM. They built the infrastructure that no one else has.
I care about my pledge to my patients to keep their information completely private. This silly "ecosystem" argument is for users who use their phones as toys, I see it in the waiting room all the time. If I had no concerns about this I would probably own an Iphone or Android as well.

I chose my user name "Ignoramia" to imply that we are all victims of our ignorance, and therefore knowledge and wisdom is our only source of salvation - physically, mentally and spiritually. Good luck with your investing, other pursuits and your life's journey!
