I looked at my new options for 2014 online at the California website. But before I chose a plan I wanted to see what Blue Shield had available since I am already covered by Blue Shield. It took me an hour online and three phone calls to be told that Blue Shield doesn't have any options for my area even though I have current coverage in my area.
My existing coverage costs me $6,000 a year and has a $5,000 deductible. I don't have any reimbursement unless I spend $11,000 first.
This is the coverage, cost and customer support that so many people tell me is so great and that I should be so happy with.
"HP is getting lean & mean with layoffs, cutting expenses. Meanwhile, Intel is saying R&D/Fab expenses will continue to grow with no layoffs - all this while revenues are cratering. Intel's CFO is doing a horrible job. Most big-name tech stocks at/near 52-week highs as a result - but not Intel."
[Another mindless Intel bash from the board paid shill under his backbay_bstn ID.]
OMG, this wannabe stock fraud artist throws up 451 posts in half a day and Yahoo does nothing.
This guy sux and so does Yahoo's management of the boards. Stock fraud being committed right under their noses and they do nothing.

"Essa is an Intel hater. Weaver is an idiot. Intel is dead money for a long long time."
[And Lucy and the paid shills will be history as soon as the Volcker Rule gets implemented. Um, how do you view the end of days? How will you cope with retirement?
And you are aware that you are repeating yourself, right? Better go get checked out before you're as senile as Grandpa Tiglet. That's all he does is repeat himself. He doesn't even know it.]
"Well, I just finished slapping a Sell/Short on AFOP from $23+ and that hit $14.50, so show a little--just a tiny bit--of respect... "
[The stock is up 90 cents today and you are short. You want respect for being on the wrong side of things? Seriously?]
"What facts would you like to discuss, pumpers? Everytime I talk facts you guys clam up and resort to bashing and more mindless pumping".
[And you rely on what? Volume bashing and adolescent trash talking?]
Now up to 218 posts on the day. But I'm sure Ashraf will conclude that these are just normal supply and demand.

"The problem that you seem to have with me is that I tend to be pretty honest about how I see things, despite my positions"
[No, the problem I have with you is that you are horribly inconsistent and that you diverge from logical thinking far too often to go on emotional, immature rants. It's impossible to boil your thinking down to anything other than a study of totally divergent opinions expressed at the same time.
And you don't seem to be able to think past next Tuesday in your time frame. There are currently a lot of forces in play but you have the future all mapped out in your head with no other possibilities being considered and this is how you present things. All of this mostly due to the tantrum you threw after Investor's Day which you apparently still haven't gotten over.
Given the number of times you have expressed extremely strong opinions and been almost immediately proven wrong, you might want to consider this as another possibility before continuing to carve your Intel bashing into stone tablets.]
[Anyone who puts this in every post obviously doesn't have any arguments to post up.]
Sentiment: Strong Buy
"Frankly, you are both pompous buffoons that should be avoided."
[Hey, that's "Mister" Pompous Buffoon to you, buddy.]
"There's no manipulation. Just a market of buyers and sellers."
[LOL. Yeah, that's why there are so many criminal convictions on Wall Street. Because it's all just buyers and sellers in regular free market environment.
That's why we have headlines like:
Wall Street's Culture of Corruption: Forex Markets Manipulated Too
Traders Manipulated Currency Rates To Profit Off Clients
Gold: The Next Libor Scandal?
It's So Easy To Rig Markets These Days
More Market Manipulation: Wall Street Out of Control
"First it was Libor, then currencies, then commodities. Now the market manipulation game extends to a vehicle known as ISDA fix that is used as a benchmark for pricing only trillions of dollars of worth of transactions.
Dodd-Frank reformed Wall Street, right?

[Um, what planet are you living on???]
"Got trapped 23.72. Regret right after the purchasing this morning. Waiting for a bounce to get out. This one heading lower, at least $23. Dont feel good."
[We believe you. Not.]
"See, the problem is that, yes, Intel has process tech advantages but Intel also has a LOT of problems, ones that I've never seen you bring up."
[I'll bring Intel's up right after you do TSMC's. How's that?]
"You give the impression that Intel is kicking butt and taking names, but really it's a large cap tech company that continues to participate in a very limited fashion in two of the largest growth markets in compute (smartphones + tablets). This wouldn't be so bad if its major cash cow weren't in secular decline."
[Intel is kicking butt. You are just too blind to see the evidence in front of your face. You apparently can see anything that isn't happening this week.
To say that Intel selling 30 million tablets is meaningless because they aren't making any money indicates to me that your strategic business skills are almost non-existent. You're young but that doesn't have to mean that you are naive or ignorant. This last post of yours indicates an arrogance that takes my breath away. You simply think that you are smarter than everyone else and smart enough to lecture the people at Intel like they are little school children. Your cup of ego runneth over.]
Back to the Intel bashing, Ashraf? Really?
If you think that Wall Street didn't make a concerted effort to keep Intel down (Covello et al), then you are ignoring substantial evidence right in front of your face.
I've made an effort to give you the benefit of the doubt on your objectivity, but I'm getting sincerely tired of your bi-polar bashing and praising routine.
I categorically disagree with your assessments. Since your association with Nenni you have done nothing but bounce around all over heck and back on just about every company. Up and down. Up and down. Back and forth. Intel is great. Intel is terrible. I love Intel. Intel is dead money.
You are not making any sense any more. You need to do some serious thinking about your approach to your profession because it appears to me that you are spinning seriously out of control.
If you are now an Intel bear that's your choice. But to engage in this love-hate process serves no one.
Wow, must be using a bot. Some posts 6 seconds apart. Up to 188 posts now. This guy should do serious jail time.

This wannabe stock manipulation scammer is now up to 175 of these posts.
Again, those don't believe in paid shills here is your proof. Please post Abuse on each and every one of his messages until Yahoo removes them.
"This isn't a strategy that started when SDN started to get attention," Rose Schooler, vice president and general manager of the Communications and Storage Infrastructure Division at Intel, told GigaOM. "We've been on this journey for a decade. We've been looking at the evolution for the IA [Intel architecture] franchise within communications and redefined networking to boil it down into all of the infrastructure and workloads that support a network function."
Schooler plans to detail more of the work Intel is doing in this arena in a webcast on Wednesday. Intel wants to focus on application processing for things such as billing, and data plane processing, where routers route data packets.
