Re: Warren's stance on taxes (OT)

Re: Do I buy another iMac?

I'd consider the new iMac for the 5K Retina display, all other things being equal or a bit better than the 2011 model. If I remember correctly, the 2011 iMacs didn't have the 5K display. It's jaw dropping.

Agree, [more]

Re: Since dongles are apparently the future

I suspect Apple would like to adopt it for iOS devices. But given the investment Apple and users have made in the Lightning port, they're probably reluctant to make this change just yet. (Remember the howls when Apple ditched the 30-pin dock [more]

Re: BYD tops China electric car sales

Tesla... Over promise, under deliver. Product superior to all other cars electric or otherwise.

Re: iPhone 7

The loss of the jack will not be a deal breaker for most. But it won't boost sales either. It will just add a little to the slow sales decline.

Re: OT: Watson warning us against itself

I'm sorry, but I think this is all a load of PR BS from IBM. So far all IBM has done with Watson is create exaggerated expectations.

Re: Ireland's not happy with the EU decision

I mean Ireland clearly benefits from the deal but would it not benefit more from siding with the EC in this situation?

Well, if Volvo had made a decent all-electric car, I would have seriously considered buying it. But what they have for sale currently is miles behind Tesla, so I got one of those instead. Also, the autopilot features the article says they're [more]

Re: Things That Make Me Say "Hmmmm...."

However, Munger is a bit off when he mentions that humans need 8 servings of water or something aqueous per day. Most of the water that the body gets is from food.
