Twinkletoes continues his love of deception, impersonation and general sliminess.
In early March, soldiers with automatic rifles, ski masks and dark-green uniforms without insignias appeared at key points throughout the Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea.
Ukraine accused Russia of infiltrating its country for a takeover, and foreign diplomats including Secretary of State John Kerry demanded answers from Moscow as the world threatened to impose sanctions. Putin did answer, calmly and unswerving.
"There are many military uniforms. Go into any local shop and you can find one," he said, speculating the men were probably Ukrainians dressing up, but Putin also reserved the right of Russia to "protect the local people."
The response flummoxed diplomats, who appeared unsure how to respond. Sanctions were postponed and Russia annexed Crimea two weeks later. On Thursday, Putin admitted in a Moscow call-in radio show that the men were indeed Russian soldiers.
Now, mysterious soldiers have cropped up in eastern Ukraine where pro-Russian separatists have seized buildings and are demanding to be annexed like Crimea.
"There are no Russian divisions, no special forces in East Ukraine," Putin said during the call-in show. "They are locals."
Putin may be living in another world, but it's one where some subterfuge goes a long way in getting him ahead — and where he's careful to leave all options open when he talks, say analysts. He is balancing denials of Russia's involvement in Ukraine with threats of force, leaving the West to wonder about his intentions.
Mark Galeotti, clinical professor at New York University's Center for Global Affairs, says it is hard for Western leaders to respond successfully to Putin because he is playing by a different set of rules than they are used to.
"What the West should do is ditch the old rules of the game," says Galeotti, an associate member of NYU's History and Russian & Slavic Studies departments. "They are bound by this gentleman's agreement of diplomacy, which includes not calling people out when they are lying."
"I think it's cute that Intel renamed embedded systems as the "Internet of Things" group. It's a very nice PR move to capitalize on the IoT hype."
[When I asked Ash to describe a mainstream IoT product and list its specifications, he had nothing to say. Now he's an expert on what the product area should be called even though he doesn't know what's in it. I think it's cute that a guy who knowledge of the IoT is largely non-existent has now anointed himself as an IoT marketing expert. Ash thinks the IoT is hype. Now that's funny. From the guy who thinks it's all about smartphones and nothing but smartphones. The world is moving on but Ash is camped out with his iPhone and his happy, happy thoughts about the A7. Ash, do yourself a favor and run a comparison between Intel and Apple for the last 30 days.]
On iHub, Ash continues to speak out of both sides of his mouth - sometimes in the same post!
Intel good for $30 interspersed with "too little, too late" and Intel has blown everything.
For all of his moaning, groaning, whining and complaining, it has all turned out to be a waste of time as Intel has continued to move up and has shown surprising strength at times when other tech stocks showed no strength at all.
Eeyore once again isn't happy. O boy.
[Okay, these guys say the announcement won't come until July, after the June Google event. Well, Intel longs don't really care whether it's June or July as long as it happens.]
Nexus 8 will rival iPad mini Retina with 64-bit chip and Android 4.5 this summer
We've got two versions of the Nexus 7 tablet from Google but the Nexus 8 could be set to arrive this summer with a 64-bit processor.
The rumour mill is gaining speed with details about another Android tablet from Google. The Nexus 8 is thought to be the follow-up to the Nexus 7 and could be turning up within the next few months. See also: Google Gem smartwatch specs leaked: Set to team up with LG.
The Nexus 8 will not be announced at Google's I/O conference in June, but soon afterwards in July. It will be introduced with Android 4.5 and the I/O event will focus on new Google services. That's according to Android Geeks which cites an unnamed Dublin-based Google employee.
The same source revealed that Google will no longer produce a 7in tablet, instead moving things up to 8in. This change would mean the Nexus 8 will closer rival devices like the iPad mini, LG G Pad 8.3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0.
Per the article I just posted up, if Intel gets the Nexus win, then it should be announced on or prior to June 25th, which is the next big Google event. Note: Google I/O 2014 event to be held from June 25 to 26 in San Francisco.
This means no more than 67 days from now.
I think there is a good chance that a Nexus win would power Intel to 30+.
Of course there are no guarantees of an Intel win, but we are clearly entering into a time of maximum risk for Intel shorts. If Intel gets this win, there will be a big immediate bump in the stock price and likely no looking back.
Given the rumors already everywhere, I doubt seriously if the Nexus winner can be kept secret until June 25th.
The next Google I/O event is closing in fast, and as is the case each and every year, the search engine giant is expected to unveil some new hardware during the event. So what can we expect to see during the next conference? Well, judging by what the latest rumors are claiming, we’re most likely going to witness the unveiling of the Nexus 8 tablet.
But, nothing is set in stone yet, so let’s backtrack a bit and discuss the Nexus 8 release date rumors that have been circulated during these past several weeks. More on that one after the break.
Given the fact that Google usually follows a certain pattern when it comes to launching new devices, it’s pretty much a no-brainer to assume that, if the Nexus 8 is real and is meant as a replacement for the Nexus 7, then the slate should be unveiled in mid-2014. This theory has been initially reconfirmed by the online publication Digitimes.
Not long after that, the same publication has suggested that Google intends on releasing the Nexus 8 at the end of April, but this seemed a bit too far-fetched to be real. Then, Digitimes has yet again cited its “inside sources”, and claimedclaiming that the Nexus 8 will enter mass production in June (so the April launch is out of the question) – the same month during which the Google I/O conference will take place.
What has followed then, was “confirmation” from numerous tech blogs, that the Nexus 8 is indeed planned for a July or August release, following the June production time-frame. The slate was also further rumored to be manufactured by HTC, and not by LG or Asus.
The bottom line is, while we can’t be sure of how the story with the Nexus 8 will eventually end, we can be somewhat certain that the slate will go on sale shortly after the Google I/O event (if the N8 is real to begin with) simply because that’s what common sense dictates at this point in time. Hopefully, with the press conference closing in, all will become clearer. Stick around and we’ll keep you posted.
Twinkletoes, you and Putin are really quite a lot alike. You are both people whose ethics and humanity are dwarfed by your egos. Your ethics are as thin as an Ethiopian supermodel. You are a multiple ID poster who welches on football bets while attempting to bully, insult and stalk people at every turn. The only difference is that Putin has a lot of power and you have none. He invades other countries while you try to chase people around financial message boards, listening to hits of the 70s.
You wanna be a bully. Putin is a bully.
Get a therapist to help you channel your rage in a new direction. Today is a good day for you to become a missing person.
"Give up your scaremongering, it is over. He was only interested in securing his Crimean Black Sea Fleet in perpetuity (which I said from the beginning) which he has done. The rest of the Ukraine is not worth the pain that tough Western sanctions and ostracism would bring although he has engineered a settlement which will give his ethnic Russians a bigger voice in how Ukraine is run. This crisis is going to die down now and go away and Ukraine and Russia will come to some sort of arrangement with Ukraine in the long run probably becoming the bridge by which Russia and the West meet and come to a more lasting peaceful co-existence."
[Dunno what the source of your knowledge is, but you seem woefully uninformed. Your don't worry, trust Putin is naive. Putin needs Ukraine as a part of the Soviet economic counter to the European Union and as a buffer to NATO. To say that Crimea is all he cares about is just plain wrong. His goal is really to re-build the old Soviet Union and he has even talked about Russia's historical claim to Finland. As a minimum he wants to turn Ukraine into a federation so he can carve off parts or at least ally with parts. If he were only interested in Crimea then he wouldn't have 40,000 troops on the eastern border.
Do you know any Ukrainians or Russians? Have you ever been to either country? And if not, what makes you think you are such an expert?]
[The Ukraine situation is a long ways from being over. ]
"Russia is our beoch."
[You obviously know even less about Putin and Russia than you do technology. If that's possible. ]
"Wally hoping for doom and gloom."
[I'm actually worried that a lot of people will die because of one man's ego. People dying is a lot more important than anything that happens with the markets. Not that someone like you would ever understand that concept.
And since you hang on every post that I make, you should know that I don't ever hope for doom and gloom. ]
[Nothing has changed, with the agreement that was signed being less than meaningless. ]
Donetsk, Ukraine (CNN) -- The self-declared leader of pro-Russian separatists in the eastern Ukraine city of Donetsk on Friday defied an international deal for protesters to vacate seized buildings and lay down their arms.
The deal was agreed to by Russia, Ukraine and the West.
Thrashed out Thursday in Geneva, Switzerland, by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his Ukrainian, U.S. and European Union counterparts, it is intended to be the first step toward easing the crisis in Ukraine.
But its proof will be in whether words translate into action on the ground. In the city of Donetsk, at least, the first signs were not promising.
"Lavrov did not sign anything for us, he signed on behalf of the Russian Federation," Denis Pushilin, head of the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic, told reporters in the city.
Intel has introduced its first tiny desktop computer to use passive cooling. The Intel NUC DE3815TYKHE measures 7.5″ x 4.6″ x 1.6″ and uses a combination of low-power components and passive heat dissipation so that it doesn’t require any fans.
The system isn’t exactly a high-performance PC. It’s powered by a single-core Intel Atom Bay Trail processor and it’s aimed at enterprise solutions such as thin client systems or digital signage rather than home use.
But folks who prefer low-power, quiet solutions over bleeding edge performance might be able to make do. The mini-computer officially supports Windows 8 Embedded, Windows 7 Embedded, and Linux, but it has an x86 processor that should work with most modern operating systems.
ntel NUC DE3815TYKHE
The Intel NUC DE3815TYKHE features a 1.46 GHz Intel Atom E3815 processor with 5W TDP. It can handle up to 8GB of RAM, has 4GB of eMMC storage and support for a 2.5 inch hard drive or solid state drive.
The system has 1 USB 3.0 port, 2 USB 2.0 ports, and 3 internal USB 2.0 ports. It has HDMI and VGA ports, DisplayPort, and Gigabit Ethernet. There are also antennas for an optional wireless card.
This isn’t the first Intel NUC mini-computer to feature a Bay Trail processor. But earlier models featured active cooling systems with fans and more powerful chips aimed at both business and consumer markets.
"Hate's a strong and ugly word. Please stop your ignorance, and stop speaking for others."
[Twinkletoes has earned every bit of it. There is no more small-minded, mean-spirited wannabe bully/stalker on the message boards.
But mostly I hate him because he's not funny or entertaining and he welches on football bets. He's a dishonest, multiple ID using, duplicitous, hypocritical, parental blowhard.
Plus his affection for Sylvester Stallone 70's music is culturally offensive to anyone with two ears and at least that many brain cells.
Other than that I think he's a fine fellow.
If you put him together with Lucy and Nenni, why it's like the Three Stooges ride again. Except they were funny and entertaining and didn't welch on football bets.]
"Intel may not make profits in the near term in tablets and smartphones, but their strong push to grow in those areas should put some hurt in ARM based products. Maybe even hurt Qualcomm to some extent.
Currently, I have no put position in ARM, but am very happy with my Intel gains. Especially the deep in the money 2015 calls. Overall, I still have a large portion of the profits that I cashed in from previous puts. So far, buying 3 month puts on ARM has been working nicely for me if I place the bets when the stock is solidly above the $50 mark. And selling them when they hit the low $40's or the high $30's. But again, I do the ARM bets of puts just for fun. The real investment is in Intel since Intel is alot more transparent in their data than most other techs."
[Intel is doing exactly what it needs to do for long-term success. The fabrication story gets more compelling everyday. Intel powers on while ARM fades to black. Even Wall Street is starting to figure it out. ]
"Hooray...looks like Intel is losing its key structural advantage as competitors close the process gap."
[Leave it to Twinkletoes to read the words and not understand a single thing about what it means.]
