I do not own shares but overall if I had to bet (long or short) I would buy. Because as a contrarian I have no choice. Books are passe and so since the consensus is many times wrong it is probably a good bet. Lethargic action is also a plus because people are 'sick' of waiting and dumping it.
.MSFT I do have because of the stready public liquidation.
I am writing because I just got the NOOK HD on Ebay. Wow!!!!! The Nook was good too but I just had to move up. I am not a gadget guy at all - only bought an HD tv (32 inch store brand) two yrs ago. Have no computer. But its amazing. They are losing money on me since I have no intention of buying anything from them Oops - maybe this is a bad omen if others are like me.
how can you own any tablet without buying digital products and services. Isnt that what they are good for? buying playing games, buying renting movies, buying ebooks, newspaper/magazine subscriptions etc.
Buying movies? Why? What can the popular culture do for me? Spiderman? Die Hard? Double 007? Please.... Games? My reflexes suck.
I read the WSJ and NY Post. That's good enough.
I use it to browse the internet. Ebay, Youtube, Facebook, Amazon. Amazon is where you buy books. Ebay for everything else ($156 for a new still wrapped in cellophane boxed Nook HD!). Can't get enough of landing and takeoff videos on Youtube.
