    What a disaster is YOU, you would have nothing to contribute if you couldn't something to cut and paste, anything else you post appears to have come from someone with an 8th grade education, stuck in rusting house trailer in the backwoods of Appalachia, with no future. Did you get your laptop from the used section at Goodwill?

    You tell them the biggest PAC fund in the US is getting to wake up and publicly look at what they have been getting for their money in return...the American Taxpayer.

    I don't necessarily agree. A company that has expertise in providing military heads up visors for military purposes, like the Apache helicopters, have tons of experience in that sort of technology. One only has to ask the question, if a company has a vast depth and breadth of experience in that technology, they should be far and away have experience that Google lacks. I have been involved in efforts where companies have tried to leverage their experience thru their military experience and try to commercialize that into the public sector, dismal failures. There have been at times for 3D presentations, but those haven't taken off. There is only one company that I am aware of that can project 3D holograhic images into the air without the need for glasses, if you have some spare change that you could throw at PVHO and then be patient, believe you are going to see some movement before end of 2014. If they get their stuff off the ground they have the potential to be a first mover, but it will be a while and just be patient, I have limited myself to 15K shares, spare change for me.

    Why Do People Lie On Yahoo Message Boards...?

    Its not an interesting phenomenon, people will and say whatever you can conceive of. An interesting phenomena would be if people always did the right thing at the right time for the right reason to the right people regardless of whether they could be seen or not. That won't happen in anyone's lifetime, people will say or do things to get over on other people. It is to be expected, there is no integrity when integrity is up for sale to the highest bidder. That is only human nature, the sooner that you accept that, the better off you will be.

    I don't trade often these days, more of a long term buy and hold, but I have done some hard day trading in the past. The breadth of the Nokia price movement has been gnawing at me to do some day trading on Nokia but so far I've resisted and it has been the uncertainty of the closing date of the transaction. Perhaps one day in the not too distant future I will come to regret not trading in the BID/ASK lot sizes but 20/20 hindsight, yeah there will always be a lot of woulda, shoulda, coulda.

    Here's a tip, if the gal smells like fish, she is okay, if she smells like cologne, leave her alone, you seem smart enough so I will let you figure out the anatomy part to be snifting

    Here's the best thing to do. Go to a strip bar and get some good looking gal to give you a lap dance, then have a good couple of stiff drinks. Then sit back and relax, your intuition will then speak to you, just make sure you have enough in your wallet when your intuition says "Again, only this time, go with the busty brunette with the big tatas!!"

    I closed it because it was no longer made a difference on being able to deduct interest from my Federal taxes, since it was not of any benefit, I paid it off. But on a side note, I had 3 credit cards that had limits of $25K on them, nothing charged on them. When I closed those 3 credit cards, my credit score shot up 60 points, I would not have believed it had I not seen it for myself.

    Well when he gets to that "country club", he can become the new "Boom Boom Bonnie". As the lifers line up to get their shot at his butt crack, I am sure one of them will say "What we's haves here is a failure to lubricate".

    Indeed, for all the BS you spread, the rest of us need you to have your mailing address changed to Leavenworth, maybe you can plead down for a 10 to 15 year sentence.

  • I paid off a $66K HELOC, just wrote the check for cash surrendered the liability, didn't do anything after that, didn't get any loans, didn't run up any credit card debt, make more money, my reward, the special way I was thanked, my credit score dropped 40 points. Yet they said my credit score was affected by having this liability, with the liability gone, guess Fair Isaac just doesn't like me not being on the hook for more liabilities.

    Nokia workers say VRS forced on them

    Nokia to the workers "You have a choice, its either take some coins before we squarely put our foot on your #$%$ before you go out the door OR we will put our foot on your #$%$ AND go out the door"

    Hmm, would appear that the $7.5B will be paid outside the borders of India to Nokia Corporate, and the Indian Supreme Court has already ruled that the parent company is not responsible for the tax liabilities of the subsidiary. I think they need to take back any VRS from those Indian workers and hand it over to the Indian government.

    Nokia is a company, it is not a government agency, those folks in India should consider themselves lucky to get a package. Let their union explain to those that refused to take a package, exactly how the union is going to come up the money to pay them in perpetuity until they retire when they no longer have jobs.

    Dang, I didn't know you were so down on George Bush Jr. There are hundreds upon hundreds of documented failures that occurred in the Bush Jr. administration, I am wondering why you limited your critique on Bush Jr, to only 3 lines. Bush Jr. was a real piece of work, and the American people had to endure his second term because he had the Supreme Court to rule him in for a second term. Obama maybe hasn't delivered on everything he needs to but he didn't have to resort to the legal system for his second term.

    Is Windows An Ecosystem In Decline?

    Don't confuse a paradyme shift other than it takes a lot of heavy and painful lifting to support.

    Have you have personally been involved in a major corporate restructuring, like one company buying another and then trying to standardize a common set of processes, policies, and procedures across both companies to move them forward as one revenue generating outfit with the same common goal? My bet is not only have you not, but I believe it is probably way beyond your limited skillset to even have a clue about what it means.

    Anyone can "cut and paste" something that was written by someone that is inexperienced, introducing personal bias, and lacking the depth and breadth of real world "been there, participated in it, and helped make it happen". Microsoft is doing major heavy lifting here and to have a paradyme shift where both mobile and desktop are seamlessly integrated and having a high degree of transparency, Microsoft needs time to make this happen, any company, including Apple and Samsung, would need time to make it happen. Trying to accomplish what Microsoft is doing is like trying to finish assembling an airplane in mid flight or like herding a bunch of cats. You might want to go dig up the old EDS commercials, those will provide a good visual of what Microsoft is going thru. Don't be mislead by someone regurgitating unoriginal thoughts.

    Backlash in China as Microsoft Cuts XP Support

    I agree, at some point, the OS version will not be able to address all the changes in software technology that have taken place, at some point there is obsolescence. Chinese would do well to take not that even in outsourcing, there is planned obsolescence In where companies outsource to. When the cost of the supply chain with China becomes more cost effective to locate to another country, like in Viet Nam, outsourcing will invest where it is cheaper. The only idiot country that continues to support wholehearted outsourcing for tax benefits is the US, yet the US doesn't not have a plan to recoup loss tax revenue. Already 16K people on planet earth continue 50% of the wealth on planet earth, at some point, when the balance tips in favour of the 16K where they are getting more than half of the wealth and the rest of people on planet earth are getting less than 50%, as some point, the government will have to redistribute wealth. I use to think, redistributing wealth was bad, but, if you look at it this way, if the 16K could get that much wealth, you could redistribute everything they have, at some point the 16K would figure out a way to get it all back, so I say, do a one time redistribution and let the 16K pick up to begin their wealth collection again. Those that figured out how to get it will once again figure out how to gain it all back.

    Soon it will be Microsoft that will be able to design / manufacture / market mobile devices for its own OS on Windows phones, with the move of Nokia into Android devices, Microsoft will also be able to design / manufacture for Android compatibility of Windows software that will run on Android device. Microsoft already has a version of Office for iOS. Just waiting on the MSFT/NOK deal to be finalized. Its not like anyone from the Windows side is clamouring for any software that Apple makes. I certainly would have no interest in anything that Apple produces and from the looks of the number of the Android users and Windows users, doubt there are any must have apps that Apple is running at this point. I am not knocking Apple or what they make, but the world in not Apple centric as the media leaves you to believe. Branding may very well come down to, why would anyone want software that does run on Windows, on Android, and iOS. If you are going to pay for a piece of software, you want the flexibility to be able to run it on any hardware platform and not be locked into just Apple. My money says that Microsoft has a realistic chance of doubling in its price here versus Apple trying to double in its stock price at this point, my money is on Microsoft.

    If you could walk by his cage once a week and put a banana onto the end of a cattle prod, then when his hairy hand reaches for the banana, turn on the juice so he would get his weekly shock therapy treatment, that would be reward enough for me. Please do try to keep from developing a sadistic laugh when you put the electric setting on high, it too easy to convince yourself he's dancing fast. Last thing, a 10 second round won't do any permanent damage.
