Sure, Carter did a great job! He will be remembered as one of the worst presidents - hostages held by Iran, failed rescue attempt, inflation, high interest rates.
They are providing marketing and retail support for Chrome books, etc. when the hardware manufacturers won't. Interesting. Any benefits will flow to their bottom lines. Downside is if the hardware sucks, the Google stores will have to deal with the flak. We'll see how well this works out.
Yes, GM was always in decline and Chrysler was truly screwed by Daimler in their merger. GM'ers will surely backslide if they perpetuate the belief that they were the victims of circumstance and not from deeds of their own doing.
Semantics! GM doesn't owe the US anything because we all know the government GAVE them billions, wiped out their debts and obligations. The government even made a profit bailing out the despicable AIG, but only losses for GM.
Congrats. This thing gets beat up a lot, opportunities to get back in later.
That's what they want, but they will get something different. There will just be more automation, less employment. Wages should go up if there is a labor shortage - something the US doesn't have. Arbitrary wage hikes for unskilled work just makes it more costly, and less of it will be used.
It's arbitrary wage inflation for unskilled work. Expect service to get worse in service industries. Unemployment will go up again with minimum wage hikes and Obamacare. People in retail I talk with are already getting their hours cut to 30. Funny thing is they don't know where it's coming from - Obamacare.
We all know Vegas is in the middle of a desert. Adelson knows what he is doing. Growth in Macau is being artificially limited.
All praise to Ben Bernanke! Holding everything together as Dems do everything in their power to destroy the economy.
Why is MSFT helping DELL go private? They should be looking at mobile - phones and tablets, something NOK has a better track record for execution. Looks like the Surface is a flop.
Money moving out of RIMM, one misstep and it gets crushed. NOK making real progress on the comeback trail.
Siri integration was announced by a couple of car makers. With bluetooth connectivity that goes beyond making phone calls, this should be interesting.
