    thanks for the thumbs down ..
    now let's talk about the next mayoral race in Osh Kosh , by gosh ...
    or maybe how the invention of the toilet has affected human beings , who were designed to squat when
    taking care of business ...
    or maybe the mating habits of southern insects ..

    and there have been times when the oxygen content was too high for most plants .. the Earth corrects these
    things .. the problem for humans is that the Earth "sees" these changes as being ok and short , but
    we think that they are forever ... 50 years is a long time to a human , but not even a blink for the Earth .. g

    yes , this is the manner of humans ..
    someday there will be cries for more CO2 as plants are dying ...
    same for Bald Eagles , which are beginning to overpopulate some areas , aside from man , they have
    virtually no threats ...
    deer have become an absolute nuisance in many areas and doing their share of destruction ...
    in my area , the DEC brought in coyotes to control the deer population .. didn't work too well , now we
    have a problem with both animals ...
    " we're gonna kill aquatic plant life for the sake of recreation in shallow lakes / ponds" .. bring on the
    asian grass carp and now the Great Lakes fishing industry is being threatened ...
    How does the DEC logic work , anyway ??? got snakeheads ? we'll poison everything in the lake and
    drain it .. when it comes back , most likely plant growth will choke it out before the fish pop can come
    back ... sheezsh !!

    time will tell .. mispricing is what the traders look for , but i doubt that very many people have enough
    information to make that call at this time ..
    the whole energy sector is a great one to learn from .. see how the stocks react ... i wouldn't be putting
    a whole lot into any company at this time ... a few more quarters and we'll know a lot more ...
    beware of accounting maneuvers , once the rating agencies start to reassess their bonds and ability
    to service , we'll see lots of volitility ..

    agreed ... i wonder ,tho' , could the AOL acquisition be related to VZ's cloud ?
    VZ has done exceptionally well and as such , i trust and have faith in management that they
    understand their business , have a good plan , and execute very well ... garce

    i hear ya bloom , but these cretins believe that anything other than Hillary , Obama or shootings is off
    topic .. for the past year , there's been lots to chat about BMY , yet almost no on topic banter here ...
    Chainsawpete remains in denial , but he doesn't junk up the board like these others guys ..
    when i have a political or social bent , i go to the appropriate place to post, where i will responses both
    pro can con , but the topics can be discussed ...
    The price we pay for our freedoms is having to put up with about 20% of the population that is too stupid
    to know when they have it good and to respect others ... garce
    sad comment on today's society , but then what do you expect when TV show can get top advertising
    dollars because of the large and loyal audiences who need to see what some Kardashian is doing or
    vicariously live their dreams through reality shows ????

    it's that ol' BOD ... IBM was talking about "commodity computing" back in the 80's .. sometime near the
    end of the 90's IBM was term "cloud" , before that , it was 2nd city .. IBM could have dominated the entire
    cloud ,but when they should have been putting resources into the cloud , they were too busy trying
    make big bucks from big iron and standard IT contracts ...
    Big iron will always be around , but in small numbers and what IBM used to get for those juicy IT contracts will
    be greatly reduced via the cloud ..
    IBM needs to actually restructure and start to mine it's patent trove and start producing something /////
    for the time being , i see IBM going down the the steel road ... once the Bessimer process came about , steel
    usage took off like a rocket and was the backbone of building tremendous wealth ... eventually the
    world got saturated with steel and now it's just another commodity business ..
    IBM has the tools and people , but it's a very steep slope they are on

    we will never , never , never get any relevant information on yields ... at most , it will be some overall number
    from all products , but it's a worthless number ...
    yields are a big deal , complex and even those people involved within a company don't have a grasp of
    what their numbers mean .. this is done on purpose , being vital information to competitors , as well
    as investors ...
    each product has it's own yield curve
    it's as important to know what the breakdown is by operation , as a well as the overall number ..
    tricks can be played with yields that would make your head spin
    as with most other elements of mfg , it comes down to $$$$ ... at some point , trying to improve yields
    will not roi ..
    effective test and inspection operations are vital
    you want to ferret out "killer defects" as early as possible to avoid capacity issues downstream , as a well
    as avoiding farther processing (costs) to dead chips .
    you could have 60% yield through the first part of the line(say through the depo process for us) with
    little impact to cost or capacity ... then you could have a 98% yield at the back end and go broke because
    that 2% is at maximum cost and fallout at that point could be without chance for recovery , then miss
    a shipment to a customer and lose a contract ..
    of course , you want the process to prevent any shipment of bad parts to a customer ..
    .... you can also have a "very robust" process and none of your processes falls below 95% and still
    have a lousy production system .. say there are 100 process steps and you have 100% yield on 20 of
    those steps and 98% on the rest .. you will ship about 4 or 5 units from 100 started ..

    bjr ,,, i also believe that that was for a monochrome display , which might refresh quicker than
    a color display ... that certainly was well before DPD , which could be another factor ..
    it's like an internal combustion engine .. you can make a small one that turns 7k rpm , but you
    can't tow a trailer with it , but a larger engine doing only 2K rpm .. no problem .. i'm not that
    versed on the science behind this stuff , but i do know that everything is a trade off , from
    materials performance to design to process ... g

    sounds like you have a man crush on RK .. he can say whatever he wants , but numbers tell
    the story that investors heed ...
    for now , there should be at least some concern ... if revenue doesn't start to climb soon , some

    i'll hold judgement until Rush Limbaugh weighs in .. LOL ..
    she had something like 57 tablets ? did she have a legit script for these ?
    regardless , for a person in her position , it assumed that one has a dot of common sense , high intellect AND
    a penchant for rules and following same ..
    if she had a legit prescription for such , there are ways that she could ensure that she has them in Japan ..
    it's bit squirrelly if you ask me ..
    different rules for different castes .. oooops , almost forget we don't have a caste system in the US ...
    ever see an in depth bio on JFK ??? popping pills like Skittles .... garce
