Re: So what's a couple extra cents?

With such an open and shut case how come no one has sued Goldman? Surely Coca-Cola and others can afford the best lawyers in the land who would be more than glad to mine just a rich vein.

Re: What's the next growth driver??

I forgot to mention VR in my previous post, which Apple is also rumored to be working on. In a way, I'd be curious to see if we could merge VR and wearables. A Google Glass that didn't suck would be interesting.
