you really don't want to argue with that nut. He has stalked me for 15 years after I uncovered him using his caseyboy2 alias on a NAMBLA site. And for the record I am anti-pedophile. He is a pedophile who likes "young boys". You've been warned.
I said something similar a few weeks ago:
to put Gorilla Glass and automotive in context:
- approx. smartphone market is 1B units/yr
- approx. car market is 80M units/yr
- 1 car is approx. equivalent of 200 phones
capturing 5% of car market would be the equivalent of capturing 100% of the phone market which would more than DOUBLE GG output
Now this is how the whole ride sharing should be done:
Google parent Alphabet Inc. is pushing into the rapidly expanding ride-sharing business with a new app that lets commuters carpool together, further fraying its ties with Uber Technologies Inc.
Alphabet on Monday unveiled a pilot program that will enable several thousand San Francisco-area workers to hitch rides to or from work with users of Alphabet’s popular Waze navigation app. Riders will pay drivers 54 cents a mile, and Alphabet won’t take a cut during the pilot.
The program signals Alphabet is likely to use Waze as a way into the increasingly popular world of ride sharing, pitting it more directly against Uber, the world’s most valuable private venture-capital-backed company, which dominates ride sharing in the U.S.
Alphabet and Uber have been allies. Alphabet’s Google Ventures invested $250 million in Uber in 2013 and included prompts to book Uber rides in its Google Maps app. Alphabet’s senior vice president for corporate development, David Drummond, is on Uber’s board.
However, the relationship is increasingly fraught. Uber is developing its own mapping and driverless-car technology, which could compete with Alphabet’s efforts to develop a self-driving car. A spokeswoman for Uber declined to comment on the company’s relationship with Alphabet.
10,500 of these now graded by PCGS. It will be interesting to see what percentage of the total 250,000 eventually wind up graded. The 10,500 number also understates the number because if they are submitted in bulk with a min grade of 70, many will come out at 69 or lower and be "thrown away" and not counted as graded
I was referring to the interest he is paid on his debt. I think he just gets paid in additional shares of stock. you think they cough up $760K in cash to him? What a sweet deal for him.
do you smoke pot or something? Magic mushrooms? Why do you even bother with posts like that?
we don't like how you call us "Uber deniers and stock promoters"
We have morals, unlike you and Hickman
from LA Times article today:
When I go to the airport, I drive and pay to park my car for a few days, or I ride public transit if I have the time, or I call a taxi. So far, I have never used Uber or Lyft in order to save a few bucks. It would make me feel morally compromised.
Sure, I’ve had the same complaints that many others have about the traditional cab companies — scarce or tardy taxis, shabby cars, high fares — but, at least for me, the bad experience is a rare exception. I know I could save money riding with Uber, but I dislike the business model: a model that exemplifies an emerging new economy in which a few people get very rich and everyone else is a freelancer struggling to patch together a living wage.
Uber’s owners were smart enough to create an app that would link people seeking rides with Uber drivers. For their cleverness, they are now billionaires with a business that has spread across the world amid protests and controversy. The drivers on whom this entire commercial empire is built generally make less than traditional cabbies and receive zero benefits from the company. That is because Uber classifies them as independent contractors.
volume is strong and the stock is steady. First time I can remember that the ex-dividend day did not see a selloff. Maybe more folks are looking at the stats pages and can figure out this quarter looks fantastic
sorry, you are clearly in denial. they have nothing of value. Their assets are probably worthless and to unwind this company would cost someone $24M, assuming there are no lawsuits. Lawsuits could add another $10M, much more if there has been fraud. Tax loss value? depends on if the buyer continues that line of work
I told you not to buy that lot at 65c and you told me I didn't know what I was talking about. Maybe you should take a fresh look at this before you put your retirement in jeopardy. the stock continues to make new lows and you guys are eating yourselves; the only ones buying are you dummies thinking you are getting a deal.
yes. Try installing an adblock program so the streaming videos don't eat up your bandwidth. much trouble posting via a cell phone using cellular. no problem when on wifi
you don't buy liquor, you rent it
exactly though, all the little medallion holders get wiped out to the benefit of the hedge fund guys who bought Uber and Lyft. Taking down "big taxi" is code for hurting the little guy
