Re: ancedotal Walmart Stories

Financial engineering is probably WMT's easiest, low-hanging fruit.

When higher fees win

But when it comes to the fast-growing category of alternative mutual funds, people seem to be ignoring this basic fact of fund fees. Recently, the research company Morningstar took a look at the data for mutual funds defined as alternative. From [more]

Re: two minimum wages...

If you're a strong believer in economic markets, you would expect that firms will respond in ways that are very detrimental to the workers currently earning the minimum wage, though perhaps not detrimental to the economy or workers generally. [more]

Re: Apple has already patched iCloud

It doesn't actually say that the two are working together to investigate. They very well may be doing that, but it reads to me like those are separate investigations.

I suspect they are. Apple's "investigation" would be [more]

Re: You need $100K a year, at least?

Are those numbers adjusted?

I am pretty sure they're not.

$20,000 in 1970 was a king's ransom. If you wanted to buy the same things with your $20,000 1970 dollars, you'd need $123,000 today.

Re: Why Microsoft locastes stores next to Apple'

I haven't followed the MS stores enough to see whether this strategy works. Have they been a success for MS?

If by "success" you mean "are they sparkly and shiny"? Yes. Are the profitable? It's hard to see how. [more]

Re: Potential Security Breach - Celebrity Photos

Apparently, this was different. Apple patched something in iCloud. Whether it was related to these photos or not is likely going to remain in the realm of conjecture. However, the timing is ... well ... interesting.

Re: Why Microsoft locastes stores next to Apple'

Long gone are my Apple fanboy days, but it still seems to me that, as a deliberate strategy for MS, it would backfire.

Not necessarily. It's a well known tactic in store siting called "parasite marketing." (And it was [more]

Re: Great Stuff

I would at least TRY some acetone.


Acetone will eat through vinyl siding. Depending on the kind of paint, it will also mar the coating on aluminum siding. So you have to be careful what kind of solvent you use.

Re: Am I saving too much in retirement accounts?

It's a wash.

As you noted upthread, it's not a wash if your tax bracket changes in retirement, which it does for almost everyone.
