I live in a densely populated affluent area in the northeast ans have yet to see one Tesla on the road or parked. Must be those tree huggers in California buying them. Soon they'll dry up though.
Twitter is a tool for known entities, that's it. Common people don't use Twitter for any useful purpose such as communication with one another, they use Facebook. Twitter is basically useless unless you're a celebrity or something similar to spew your shameless self promotion to an army of loser followers. I have an account and follow a handful of news people and sportswriters, that's about it. I can't see how they're making money off that. The only way they could is if they charged known people and businesses to publish their tweets. And we all know that nobody would pay. This one is done. It'll probably be gone within five years or at least delisted from the stock exchange.
You're right about that MacBook. Insane what they charge for a higher-end model. I'd like one myself although no way I'd ever fork over that kind of money for a laptop as they seem to break within a few years. The iMac desktops are another story however...worth every penny.
Lenovo buying the Motorola business from Google is a bigger problem for Apple than most anticipate. This goes to prove to everyone how inept the financial media "pros" really are by not foreseeing the inevitable. First of all, Lenovo = Chinese, and Lenovo makes some very nice computers. Therefore, I'm sure they're capable of re-engineering those Moto phones into excellent and "inexpensive" products which will undoubtedly flood the Chinese market taking another bite out of Apple. Samsung also has plenty to be concerned with regarding this deal.
The local Sears store is about 5 minutes from where I live and during the holiday season, virtually nobody was in there and the store looked like a mess. I remember long ago when Sears was king of retail with that enormous catalog that costs a fortune to print and waiting for their Christmas Wish Book to arrive to pick my toys from. Fact is, they just didn't adapt to changing times. But hey, nothing lasts forever and what's hot today will likely be gone at some point.
