You are correct about ISIS. Their soldiers most certainly are being paid by one or more countries that do business with us. We could stop them cold if we put 'pressure' on the countries that pay them. Qatar is one, there are others. But we don't. I wonder why. You always got to follow the money.
News for you. Bush is a war criminal and deserves to spend the rest of his miserable life in prison. He can share a cell with Cheney, Rumsfeld, Perle, his brother Jeb and all the rest of the PNAC neocons. Only one toilet though.
Who says Sunnis want to attack the US. They just want the Middle East. Let them have it. It's religious war, and these folks do not respond to logic or threats. If you want to win, you have to kill them all. I don't think we're prepared to do that. My suggestion is to send George Bush, #$%$ Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, and the rest of the neocons over there to negotiate with ISIS or whomever is in charge at the moment. These are some of our toughest battle hardened Americans that know how to deal with these people. I have complete faith in their ability to do the right thing.
I said Apple is running out of gas. And I still think so. Let's see where they are in five years. I don't care about now. Smartphones are commodities whose prices will drop.
Already are. Apple is unique, but at very high prices. I don't know how much longer they can sustain these prices.
Data Center suppliers are not foundries, to my knowledge. Intel supplies chips to manufacturers of servers, not to Data Centers directly, insofar as I understand the process.
It's not so simple. The data center supplier is not ARM. It's HP or some other company that sells servers that may utilize ARM designed chips. So the data center makes a purchasing decision based on the system being sold by the supplier which is not ARM. Many factors go into that decision besides cost. Reliability, ease of upgrading or replacement, service, relationships, etc.. Just like any other business.
But you're using a version of their IDs in your ID. I think you'll have to pay them. Got any moolah?
Wall Street doesn't fleece investors. 'Investors' fleece themselves. Just like you to blame someone other than yourself for your failings.
Oh my God! Intel is going to be CRUSHED! By Samsung. Head for the exits! I'd say the probs go the other way. Samsung is more likely to be crushed by Intel. But, the real truth is that neither company will crush the other. It's a real big universe.
Wall Street is not stupid. Volatility is how they make the big bucks. They love days like this. Fundamentals are only one variable that determine stock price, and not always the most important, especially when HFT are at work.
Dummy, the stock market is not the economy. Most middle class folks don't participate in the casino we call the market. Only us rich folks do.
One more thing. Which would you rather have, Big Ears, or a Small Brain? Because you've got the latter.
I agree with you. Mr. Bush lowered unemployment drastically by starting two illegal wars and sending American soldiers to be killed for no reason. Oh wait, there was a reason, WMD. Oh wait, there were no WMDs, there was another reason, oil contracts for American oil companies. A small price to pay for lowering unemployment.
You are correct, the last six years have not been good for the average middle class family. And they're not gonna get better, no matter who's in office. Why? Because we live in a global economy, jobs move to low wage countries to increase profits, automation removes jobs for humans, and there are too many humans in the world right now relative to the real jobs that need doing. Humans are fungible, if you don't want to work for ten bucks an hour, someone else will. Easy money and tax laws favor the wealthy, so they get wealthier and control the politicians. End result, few really well off folks and a whole lot of poor people, i.e. third world America. Other than reducing the population by 30% or so, there's no way to fix the problem. And sooner or later there will be too many poor folks with nothing to lose, and not enough payoffs, I mean entitlements to keep them quiet. Lots of guns around. The end game won't be pretty. I won't be around to see it, but my kids will.
Are the two related, dumbois? I think not. Did you take your medications this fine morning? I doubt it since you made a ridiculous post first thing. Stick to reporting. Not to critical thinking, which you appear incapable of doing.
Phones are 'cheap' relative to most quality TVs and are replaced much more frequently. If batteries were replaceable in phones Apple would be in trouble. That's why they're not.
