Yeah, what TT511 said.. and, the overall reaction to Japan. But, Japan is cautious and is watching, so in a day or two, you'll be wishing to be buying at tonight's levels...
Not that bad. It's only money, and a temporary thing. The Feds are contemplating to mint a platinum One Trillion Dollar Coin. Now, if you'd put it into the coke machine, by accident, thinking it is a quarter - that's bad....
Absolutely positively this will only grow. The coal technology promoters are sitting on diminishing returns. Japan is a perfect example why nuclear is not self contained or safe in seismic prone areas.
They must be thanking the power availability to be able to do so electronically.
The best medicine for all:
Just buy on dips and fogetaboutit !
Apple does great when everything else is going down. I think it is a great hedge.
A zillion dollar company ain't going anywhere too far.
Spend some time with other stocks or daytrade your ROTH IRA, if bored. No pressure there, with a time horizon. No taxes.

What goes up, must come down.
What comes down, will go up!
Wow, you're still at it? Don't you get tired of that same interface at the office - to bring it here?
Try a V A R I E T Y - you might like it. They''ve been doing it for ages in some middle eastern parts of the world...
Wow, Apple engineers newer used the final product, never touched it, just turned it on and off. Wow...
I think the next time, they need to spend at least 5 minutes with the production unit, hah? And play a game or something, something that might make that chip hot, hot, hot....
Or, perhaps, they 'forgot' to overclock it, or simply forgot to lock-out the BIOS settings, thus allowing adjustable Vcore, muiltipliers and BCLK, causing to E X P L O D E !!!
"Wussy Safe" shall be the new certification on the QA/QC sticker.
Yep. Definitely put a new Mini on my wish list.
Surely glad solar power and electric cars are kicking booty interim and for the long and bright while....x2, x3, x4, x5, x10.....
while Apple is getting out of the ruts, for 6 mo's by now?!
I think it's time to load up again with some Apple to keep a variety of very good and solid prospects.
Sony Walkman with analog Denon or TDK high bias metal cassette tape.
Agree, however no-one can stop an installation of several panels, for water tank alone, or solar heat for pool.
Transmission and distribution will not cease to exist. With substations, solar energy will be rectified to AC, voltage will be stepped-up (current goes down, losses are minimized), and transmitted over regular aerial lines, not necessarily 'super high conductivity' ones, to another substation where voltage and amperage change their values again. Just like it is normally transmitted and distributed today. The whole idea about solar power - the fuel is clean and free.
And although I was a big critic some years ago about nothing growing underneath the panels, actually, once put in a desert like environments, a shade will be created and I'm sure many vegetation varieties will strive. Even the remote sprinkler system and pumps can be powered by the solar cells themselves. Semiconductor technology is getting more efficient on a daily basis anyways, and more and more energy of the sun will be converted to electricity.
Gas? Limited, creates other problems and not all that cheap. But certainly, will be a part of the whole equation. Yet, sooner or later, we will run out of that also. Biofuels (aka, the stuff that might grow underneath the panels) to the rescue.
Who would not want to have solar cells on their rooftop these days? As long as it is done right - properly installed, easily removable, no water leaks around mounting hardware through the shingle roof.
This is way beyond politics these days, where solar power is becoming fairly feasible for a consideration.
And, why worry about roof cover for carports and garages, where solar cells can provide that function along with pay as you go charging for upcoming electric/hybrids? Shopping malls, public and private facilities, educational, commercial, etc., etc., etc. A slew of rechargeable bikes is coming up shortly also.
Wake-up from your old ways of thinking, whether you are Gen 'Baby Boomer', 'X', 'Y' or 'Insta-Gratification Without an Effort'.
I was in agreement with you about watching the SP, especially today. The Samsung reference was toward CRUS, SWKS, AAPL. With the latest patent wars, it might hurt that industry for a little while, until the next release of products.
As far as Sodastream, it popped two night ago at 5am??? due to the published in newspaper story (and Reuters, Yahoo, etc.) about Pepsi's offer of $2 billion to buy-out SODA, plus a share purchase up to $95.00 plus. That popped the stock from $70 to $100, I've discovered this purely accidentally on their board. A few hours later, PEPSI was denying this rumor. Many still are wondering whether this had been announced too early, while Pepsi's was negotiating with SODA, and the rumor might be a reality...
Unfortunately, most seem to be dependent on the mothership SP........ Samsung for some others.....
And how about that SODA $30's POP to $100 at 5am last night due to bad (or perhaps somewhat premature for Pepsi) 'news' rumors? Right when I've started feeling jealous. One hour later, it was down 30. Wild, Wild West...
