I don't know your farmer friend, but a polyester farm uses oil as its primary input. An what pressure could goinglong possibly have in a nuthouse?
@@@@We are talking about full vertical integration when polyester is produced at one site starting from crude oil or distillation products in the chain oil → benzene → PX → PTA → PET melt → fiber/filament or bottle-grade resin.
What? You have the nerve to post some BS innuendo about how VECO share price is justified here on the CREE board and spin it as another bash on CREE technology and management, when CREE has outperformed VECO as LED lighting finally gained traction the last couple of years. You repeatedly refuse to answer the questions I asked in reference to your original post. And you ask why I am calling you names??? You call CREE management creepy when you pull off crap like this buttcream?
This post of yours exposes you as a true slimeball. You are probably some dirtbag analyst who's trying to suck people into going long VECO and dumping CREE when they should be doing the opposite. Get lost you scum.
Just for once, why can't HPQ come up with an innovative product first? Why is it always Asus, or Acer, or whoever. Why is that? The #$%$ thing even does 4K graphics. And it is tiny! 5x5x1.7in. Jeez.
@@@@@With easy out-of-the-box setup, integrated virus and malware protection and feature-enhancing updates, ASUS Chromebox starts up in seconds to get you to your favorite websites and apps instantly. And why a box? Because with a box it houses a processor powerful enough for ultrafast multitasking performance in Chrome OS and the connectivity options to choose your own screen size, connect to multiple displays at once and even attach to any VESA-mountable monitor or HD TV. All this starting at only $179, ASUS Chromebox is the always-new computer that just makes sense.
Small in Size, Big on Features
It may be the world’s smallest Chrome computer, but ASUS Chromebox is big on connectivity. It comes with high performance 802.11 b/g/n dual-band wireless, four USB 3.0 ports for fast data transfer, HDMI and DisplayPort for connecting to the latest displays and HDTVs, including support for dual displays and an SD card reader for easily accessing stored photos and documents.
A More Beautiful Web Experience
ASUS Chromebox supports up to 4K UHD playback, letting you enjoy the best quality content from the web1. Kick back and relax as you browse the web, watch movies and shows on Netflix, or view photos from your SD card. And with a wide assortment of offline apps, ASUS Chromebox lets you edit documents, play games and use other popular apps without an internet connection.
It was a joke. Rome wasn't built in a day either... get it now? I am confident there will be a deal. I'm guessing it will be announced by the end of the quarter.
Seriously though... you don't see any synergies combining EMC with HPQ (ex-PC/Printer unit)? Looks like little product overlap and significant sales/distribution redundancy... sounds like a decent fit to me. What am I missing?
True, but this race horse is getting a bit old... may as well get him to do some useful work before he gets taken out to the farm shed and put down. The pair could get a few extra seasons of crops to market. .. who knows maybe even go organic and sell into WFM at premium prices.
Many? How many and which ones?
@@@@To ensure the machines are protected against viruses and hackers many banks have agreed deals with Microsoft to continue supporting their ATMs until they are upgraded, extra costs and negotiations that were avoidable but are now likely to be a distraction for bank executives. "There are certainly large enterprise customers who haven't finished their migrations yet and are purchasing custom support," a spokesman for Microsoft said, declining to name those customers or to quantify the extra revenue it is earning.
Sounds like hacker heaven
@@@@@The U.S. software company first warned that it was planning to end support for Windows XP in 2007, but only one-third of the world's 2.2 million ATMs which use the system will have been upgraded to a new platform, such as Windows 7 by the April deadline, according to NCR, one of the biggest ATM makers.
Yeah no way there's any deal coming since it's already been what, a week since the rumor leaked? Negotiations for such a simple deal like this shouldn't take any longer to finish up than a quick coffee at Starbucks. Cover your short while you still have a chance...otherwise Boom! and you are underwater for good.
It is the Japan disaster that led to the current downturn and only reactor restarts there will pull the U market out of it in the short term. Nothing else will effect a dramatic market turnaround in the next year or two.
Longer term the market looks bullish. The simple fact is it will take many years for new reactor builds in China, India, and Russia to go online. Germany's decisions have a largely longer term impact, since although there was an immediate effect in 2011 with the shut down of 8 plants, the remaining 9 are still running and are only scheduled to slowly be phased out over a 10 year period.
I don't know if those 8 old German plants will ever be restarted - I think they require an overhaul before any resumption in service (correct me if I'm wrong). If they do restart and Germany reverses the phaseout, then this will also aid in a U recovery in the medium term, but right now Japan is key.
No particular reason... was simply wondering about how HPQ could restructure to return to growth. A merger would create a top one-stop shop for enterprise HW systems - server, storage, and network. Drive SDN technology integration and adoption through more direct access path to VMW. Cost reductions through a unified sales force. Could maybe clear a path to divest PC/printer (or not if HPQ figures out a way to turn that around). I don't really know... I'm not an IT guy just thinking out loud. Sorry if it makes no sense.
Hmm, just saw this. Getty Images has terminated their partnership with YHOO. Is YHOO going to start a competitive image sales business with the Flickr artist database?
@@@@@In an email to contributors - multiple copies of which have been forwarded to us by DPReview readers - Getty has announced that its nearly 6-year partnership with Flickr has come to an end and will not be renewed. According to the email: 'Today we are announcing that we provided notice to terminate our existing agreement with Flickr. Our original agreement reached its end, and while we continue to be open to working with Yahoo!/Flickr, we have not agreed to a new agreement at this time.'
Yeah I read the paper, as opposed to posting pure speculative BS like you do.
You gonna answer the question dirtbag? Why is VECO so overpriced for zero long-term growth in tool sales? What is your explanation for that?
