Intel ends the day down 8 cents, up 5 cents AH: Net down 3 cents.
ARM ends the day down 86 cents, up 1 cent AH: Net down 85 cents.
But don't worry if you lost money on ARM. As the board dufus says: ARM has had a good run.
It's good to see Intel Inside Macintosh computers, Chromeboxes, Chromebooks, Android devices, Smartphones and Linux systems. I was beginning to worry Intel was in bed with greedy, anticompetitive, monopolistic Microsoft. Thank you Intel for supporting computing devices WITHOUT Windows 8 Metro Tiles!
Sentiment: Strong Buy

The commonality between iCloud and Apple Pay is not so much technical as it is with company's ethics and how the company presents its products and services to consumers. In the case of iCloud the vulnerabilities were multiple and absolutely involved the failure by Apple to use very basic security measures, especially related to iCloud backups.
Decisions like these are normally made by marketing to make the product or service easier-to-sell. If this charade continues we will see regulation imposed on the tech industry like how the pharmaceutical industry was forced to explain the risks of using their drug....."Caution, this might cause depression or theft of confidential data" :-)
Ok. Is Apples NFC system worse or better than the alternatives?
The above is an important question. Depending where you are in the world and on your bank, you could have a chip in you card. It may surprise you, but that chip stores your pin...and you'll need to enter that pin when making a payment or when withdrawing cash. The latest version of this technology needs no pin (for small amounts), you just swipe the card near the receiver and it's done. This swipe technology is being rolled out now. Not a finger print in sight...As you no doubt know, bank card fraud is a big issue but where and how is that system failing?
As for iCloud's security issues. As I understand it (and could be wrong) there wasn't any fundamental failure (or breach) with iCloud itself, but with people (basically) guessing famous people's passwords and taking advantage of other 'holes' in the process (password resets, auto backups etc). It's impossible to security against stupidity just as it's impossible to secure against payment crime (ie, being forced at gun point to withdraw from a teller).
Even if it turns out that iCloud was cracked, I really don't see the connection between the two technology sets.
Are you a rational, alter ego of wallisweaver?
Only I know who is your momma. Now please take your one man circus and leave. I would be angry too that my $40 position from 1999 will never be met but don't take it out on this board.
you know squat, and we know you never shorted ARMH when you should have after it ran up 15 percent as you idiotically bashed it as it did
