  • It cost more to mail the prosthetic 3D printed hand than to make it.

    3-D Samaritans Print New Mechanical Hand for Toddler
    November 19, 2014
    intelfreepressDOTcom/news/3d-printing-hand-prosthetic/8924

    3-D printing enthusiasts volunteer to create prosthetic hands that cost $10 instead of $100,000.

    Two-year-old Henry Hunker was born with an underdeveloped hand. Modern limb prosthetics can cost upwards of $100,000, but thanks to 3-D Samaritans, Henry now has a hand that costs less than $10 – and other kids find it pretty cool looking too.

    Looks like some action (17,000 contracts) in Friday $34 puts and $35 calls with similar volumes. My first impression was someone was paying 50 cents for a strangle position which would imply a bet that Intel makes a big move UP or DOWN before Friday close.

  • The Asus PadFone gets ATT voice and data certified. First USA phone-ish isn't it?

    FORBES 11/17
    Intel Gets Their First AT&T LTE Voice-Data Win With Hybrid Phone-Tablet Device

    As I’ve said many times, getting certified on an AT&T network on voice and data is recognized as one the most difficult networks if you are a chipmaker or a device maker. AT&T is “proud” of its networks, but if you can get your communications module and/or device (phone, tablet) certified there, there’s a good chance you can get it certified anywhere in the world. This is why Intel getting a win on AT&T is a pretty big deal for them. While the Intel 7160 LTE modem was AT&T- certified previously, devices weren’t, that is, until the Asus Padfone X mini showed up a few weeks ago. And at $199 without a contract, the Asus PadFone X mini pretty much blows all other AT&T GoPhone contenders out of the water for the value. I got the chance to use one for a few weeks and wanted to give you some of the highlights.

    The Asus PadFone is unlike any device I’ve used before. .....

    "Paul do you know if this is actually is 'made' by Intel and not an ARM SoC on some foundry?"

    The watch is made by Basis Peak which was acquired by Intel earlier this year.
    The watch is therefore "made by Intel".

    If your question is "what components did Intel use in this particular watch?", then the answer is likely the same components that Basis was using when Intel acquired them earlier this year .... just like the band, case, battery, glass, software ..... I would not be surprised if Basis chose an ARM device for there initial designs ... and I would not be surprised if the Intel engineers at Basis continued with that design for a couple of iterations ..... if not longer.

    Intel uses ARM devices in a number of controller applications, like SSDs. Intel is still one of ARMs biggest customers. But, of course you know that.

    "You twisted that by reporting a poll of PEOPLE IN GENERAL. My assumption is that people are this board are better informed on what the issues really are."

    I twisted nothing.
    You are perfectly welcome to your opinion and your assumptions may even be right. I simply added some data and its analysis to the conversation. I thought the timing and content of the opinion survey was very interesting and thought sharing it would be better than just my opinion.

    "As a very knowledgeable technology consumer and investor, do you welcome the FCC regulation??? "

    I am probably part of the 87% described in the study.

    "What affect do you think it will have on INTC??? I think there will be a lot less video transmitted relative to the potential without tight regulation, which means a lot less server and data center investment."

    I believe the impact on Intel will be less negative than you seem to believe. IMO, the "Net Neutrality" discussion outcome will just determine whether cable companies squeeze pricing on the content providers or squeeze the cable bandwidth consumers.

  • alexander.dumbass alexander.dumbass Nov 15, 2014 5:28 PM Flag

    "Most people on this board understand that it is the Democrats that are on the wrong side of the Net Neutrality issue."

    University of Delaware Center for Political Communication conducted an interesting poll. The Nov 11, 2014 poll shows that "National survey shows public overwhelmingly opposes Internet “fast lanes” (their words ... not mine). Their results show that 81% oppose allowing bandwidth providers to charge some extra.

    The 80%-ish level is pretty consistent across those that have heard nothing, a little or a lot. The support for NET NEUTRALITY was FAVORED or STRONLY FAVORED by 80%+ of those identifying themselves as Democrats, Republicans or Independents.

    Some, they asked using the "NET NEUTRALITY" phrase and some they omitted the reference and the results are shown to move a little. The framing question they ask first and its variation .... and the survey goes on to ask their other questions.

    "The U.S. government is considering new rules for Internet service providers ... [Some people call this issue NET NEUTRALITY.] How much, if anything, have you heard about this— a lot, a little, or nothing at all? "

    Three DOTs .... ugh.

    "In this video, he did not deny the substance of his remarks from two years ago."
    We have different opinions. That is OK with me.

    "Here is an INTC question. Why do so many of you believe in a market driven market for computer chips, but reject market driven health care? "
    I don't believe there was a "market driven health care" system before. A market driven market would not allow a 20%, 30%, 40% ...... annual increase that we frequently saw. Again, we see things differently and I doubt that a couple threads on this finance board will persuade either sider to change position.

    "The Republicans have market driven solutions. Why don't we put Big Brother on the shelf and let the market work?"
    The only Republican plan that I have heard was to repeal Obamacare and other vague, general statements. If the Republicans did have ideas, it is too bad they took the road of obstruction rather than participate in writing the original law.

    "Why don't we put Big Brother on the shelf and let the market work?"
    8-) I don't have a problem with doing this ..... as long as we are consistent and put Big Brother on the shelf for a number of other things too .... I don't even have to tick off the list .... you have a good idea what it would be.

    BTW, thanks for the measured language in this post.

    "AD- You won't find this on the front page of the Tribune. Get a subscription to the WSJ- they have real news."

    I am not familiar with the Tribune publishing policies but I have much less trust in the WSJ since Rupert bought it .... and less every day. The WSJ may have "real news" but the 2013 U of Penn conference comment was not a story in 2013 nor is it now. If you get all your news from the WSJ, you could use some diversity in your reading material too.

    Here is a link to Gruber being interviewed earlier this week about his 2013 comments.

    The Intel Adjusted Price on Nov 21, 2012 was $18.05.
    Today's price of $33.40 is 85% above that $18.05 price.

    Doesn't seem like he is either "dumb" or a "liar" to me. Seems like he could be understating my returns since Nov. 21, 2012.

    IMO, using the ADJUSTED PRICE which incorporates dividends is OK since the dividends are in my pocket. He could have been clearer about what he meant by "UP".

    " .... and the call contracts forced the price down."
    My thinking is .... a large volume of say JAN $15 call options could be BOUGHT or SOLD or a trading mix with a net buy/sell.

    Buying a deep call forces the OMM into a proxy buy/cover the equivalent shares.
    Selling a deep call forces the OMM into a proxy sell/short the equivalent shares.

    The culprit starts long/short/no position and ends up with a long/short/no position. I just cannot tell where he starts and where he ends. ("he" could be multiple connected or unconnected players).

    I have thought that the goal was to arbitrage dividends because the constant Intel trading at the STRIKE+DIVIDEND price level, but it could be someone short to neutralize the cost of paying the "IN LIEU OF" DIVIDEND charges.

    It makes my head hurt.
