    An EXCITING slide show for all AKAM and/or AAPL investors

    Fast forward to the future . . .

    <Mobile internet usage is “bigger and will be bigger than most think,” according to Morgan Stanley analyst Mary Meeker’s bullish prediction.  Presenting her report on internet trends and the economy at the Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco on Tuesday, she said the overall tech industry was in recovery, and predicted that the mobile internet was the “next major computing cycle,” based on what she called the “explosive Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) iPhone / iTouch ramp.” Mobile internet usage, Meeker predicts, will “surprise to upside for years to come.”>

    • >>They'll soldier on, Che would want it that way: el socialismo siempre.<<

      LOL

      Uh oh, ER . . .

    • >> . . . some Dems have been unnerved by the election results and want to skip, until after the 2010 election, discussions of illegal immigrants and of Cap and Tax. Apparently they're still pushing Obamacare, although even on that subject reports vary. Your take?<<

      They'll soldier on, Che would want it that way: el socialismo siempre.

    • >>Always the main course . . . desert is just desert.<<

      That's my choice, too, though it took me a while to get past the notion planted by the chocolate pudding and marshmallow vision set in front of me.

      >>Yes, but it's key. Everything you do affects your health, and if the government is paying for keeping you healthy they won't hesitate to set limits to behavior that they regard as unhealthy.<<

      I can see ACORN now, coming around to enforce proper nutrition and exercise. If I ate every item, in their stipulated amounts, recommended by the USDA, there wouldn't be time left for anything else. I'm beginning to wonder if Obamacare has hit the skids. Talk now is about no vote until January, and according to reports (rightwing propaganda?) some Dems have been unnerved by the election results and want to skip, until after the 2010 election, discussions of illegal immigrants and of Cap and Tax. Apparently they're still pushing Obamacare, although even on that subject reports vary. Your take?

      >>I suspect all the maneuvering is just face saving for Obama/Hillary. They'll have the elections and recognize them and the crisis will be over.<<

      Fortunately the elections are this month. I hope they take place before someone gets another subversive idea.

    • >> . . . tenderloin steak or pork ribs and a dessert like chocolate cream pie (with REAL crust, not graham cracker crumbs), which would you choose?<<

      Always the main course . . . desert is just desert.

      >>That unconstitutional forcing could go a lot further than the health "reform" bill. . . .<<

      Yes, but it's key. Everything you do affects your health, and if the government is paying for keeping you healthy they won't hesitate to set limits to behavior that they regard as unhealthy.

      >>What do you think will be the outcome in Honduras? The articles I've read lately lean in the bias of the writers.<<

      I suspect all the maneuvering is just face saving for Obama/Hillary. They'll have the elections and recognize them and the crisis will be over.

    • >>I can't see how it could mean anything else. If they can force you to buy insurance for your health why can't they force you to eat three healthy meals a day including vegetables, fruits, grain, and protein and you can't leave the table until you finish or no desert mister?<<

      Oh, LOL, I remember the days of looking at a dish of chocolate pudding with a marshmallow on top and KNOWING I could not have it unless I "cleaned up" my plate. If you had to choose between a main course like tenderloin steak or pork ribs and a dessert like chocolate cream pie (with REAL crust, not graham cracker crumbs), which would you choose?

      That unconstitutional forcing could go a lot further than the health "reform" bill. Remember 'bussing'? They could force you out of your home for the purpose of creating 'integrated' neighborhoods They could force you to turn off your lights an hour after sundown. The regime has only just begun. Through taxation, we are already being forced to fund Obama's celebration of abortions.

      >>There's so much about Obama that's been hidden and is protected by all the offices of government it's damned scary. Eventually all of this stuff will be found out (unless he actually manages some sort of Zelaya/Chavez style takeover) but by then it will be too late to do anything about it.<<

      It's like science fiction. The United States population is more than 300 million. Even subtracting the children and infirm, that is WAY more than our military. Yet we watch America's destruction helplessly! Apparently TV, sports stadiums, etc. have conditioned most of the population to be watchers, not participants. Is the only Revere stamped on the bottom of pots?

      What do you think will be the outcome in Honduras? The articles I've read lately lean in the bias of the writers.

    • >> . . . Hatch said the federal government forcing Americans to buy health insurance would mean "there is literally nothing the federal government can’t force us to do."<<

      I can't see how it could mean anything else. If they can force you to buy insurance for your health why can't they force you to eat three healthy meals a day including vegetables, fruits, grain, and protein and you can't leave the table until you finish or no desert mister?

      >>Remember Obama's alleged multiple Social Security numbers? Orly published a letter from a Colorado lawyer today. The lawyer said:<<

    • >>So buy now and sell out before Xmas? Sounds an awful lot like trading.<<

      Ixnay. Doesn't trading require a trade? I.e. that you trade one company for another? In this instance, selling stocks without buying something in the same time frame is . . . locking in profits . . . something the most astute investors (ahem) do. The goal of investing is to profit, yes? no?

      >>The only control they have is through intimidation, which probably is not strictly unconstitutional. It all stems from their ability to tax (and print money . . . which is a tax in a different form) which is also the ability to destroy.<<

      Senator Orrin Hatch commented on Obamacare forcing citizens to buy health insurance. Hatch said the federal government forcing Americans to buy health insurance would mean "there is literally nothing the federal government can’t force us to do."

      That would unquestionably be unconstitutional. And that is terrifying.

      Remember Obama's alleged multiple Social Security numbers? Orly published a letter from a Colorado lawyer today. The lawyer said:

      By the way, I have checked out the four (4) Denver addresses used by Obama, and three of them are street names that do not exist, and arguably never have: one on “Multiple Street”; two on “Transfer Street”; all in the 80207 zip code in Denver, CO. The fourth one, on North Olive Street, actually is a Denver street, but I have yet to drive up there to see whether the house number actually exists and who lives there. I will do that, and I will speak to the person who resides there to find out how long they have been there, etc.

      Code for 'multiple transfers'?

    • >><. . . managers in January will likely be net sellers of the large caps they increasingly will be purchasing over the next several weeks, while being net purchasers of the secondary stocks that they will be selling in the near term. . . .<<

      So buy now and sell out before Xmas? Sounds an awful lot like trading.

      >> . . . That pay czar should not have ANY say over any person or any entity. . . .<<

      The only control they have is through intimidation, which probably is not strictly unconstitutional. It all stems from their ability to tax (and print money . . . which is a tax in a different form) which is also the ability to destroy.

      >>Yes, glad I didn't get it . . . need to wait out the next few days.<<

      PE, after six deleted attempted posts, even trying just a half post and trying via Firefox, I replied to this post at IV.

      Mark Hulbert has what I think is an invaluable column today, about the market's direction before January . . . and why . . . and then its turn in January, with another 'why'. The link is in my IV post.

    • >> . . . Nope, no crack. Yahoo's historical quotes have the low at $188.17. And the high at $196.80. That was better than a thank you ma'am . . .<<

      Yes, glad I didn't get it . . . need to wait out the next few days.

      >>Have you watched the three major indices, not just the Dow?<<

      Just the CNBC live bug S&P, Nasdaq, and DOW all come up together.

      >>How about Geithner postponing any action to reduce the deficit? Do you think he's laying the groundwork for doubling it? He's worrying about banks not taking enough risks. Heck, isn't that what ACORN is for? To force those risks?<<

      Frankly those guys scare the hell out of me. I think they're just trying desperately to keep all the saucers spinning and so far they have. But one's going to flip off the stick one of these days and they'll go into panic mode . . . which will send everyone else into panic mode too.
