Re: OT: Amazon planning to open 100s of bookstor

I can't find any mention of the "after capital lease" figures in their
quarterly reports or the recent 14 page Dec 31 earnings release.

Re: Dividend Investing

So true. I don't have a large investment in Apple; but I get back 1/2 my original investment back with each dividend payment. Not even mentioning the enormous appreciation.

Re: I saw the future

It does look like a dock. But I don't want a dock because half of the time I want to use my iPad or iPhone while it's charging. None of the pictured usages is one I apply often.

And when you say "I recently purchased" I can't help [more]

Re: I saw the future

Sacrificing the headphone jack will allow Apple to make the new iPhone even thinner, the person said.

Not sure if this is true, but it's a persistent rumor.

Re: B & C Players

I don't know about D and below. But hiring B and C players becomes inevitable as you grow. There just aren't 10,000 A players in the Valley. And Google, Amazon and Apple want to employ 20,000 of them each...

Re: I saw the future

I liked the idea of an Apple Watch, but when it came out I wasn't convinced. It seemed too thick and too clumsy.

Re: WMT vs AMZN


I think it would be fascinating to find out what fraction of the students picks Amazon.
