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?

Re: Maybe Apple should buy Volvo

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: OMG .... we own Apple shares

Kelly says wager 50/200 = 25% of the bankroll.

I've never trusted Kelly, it seems too much of a simplification of the real investing world. Maybe it's a good way to maximize the return on exactly the same bet made over and [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.

Re: Motley Fool analysis

At any rate, for a tons of reasons, and many that don't even involve Apple, I expect that AAPL will tumble 13.765% between today's close and tomorrow's opening.
