    • A 10 inch iPad on the dashboard?
      Maybe Apple can invert the image and turn it into a heads up display ( reflect the image off the windshield).
      ^VIX hit a new low yesterday.

      • I've seen heads up displays in aircraft. As an experienced fighter pilot I can tell you that you still can't look outside and see the data on the windscreen unless you have trained on doing it. It's not terribly different from texting and driving. With training you could text, I suspect, but the average Joe can't do it. Further some of the heads up data tells you attitude, altitude etc that you don't control in an automobile. So while you are looking at the heads up data in an aircraft you are also looking at informarion you need to fly the aircraft. Although I have no idea what the heads up data in a car would be, I don't think it's really compatible. Just my 2 cents.

      • There seems to be a high level of complacency in the market. Sometimes, the music stops and the market keeps dancing...for a while.

        The rising price of fuel is a cause for worry. the price has been rising, even with weak demand. When driving season gets going, the price may get much higher. If it gets high enough, it will tank the economy.

        Still, it's hard to be on the sidelines when you see days like yesterday. But, if the market does go into a correction, stocks will fall faster than they rose.

        I'm still mostly in the market, buying the dips and selling weak stocks on the rallies.

        Bought and sold GRMN going into the ex div date for a small profit.
