Re: Hillary's Emailgate more like Watergate…

I hadn't thought about it, is almost like Watergate.

Except for the multiple felonies, the breaking and entering of a doctor's office, the money laundering through Mexican banks, the involvement of the CIA in domestic politics, the [more]

Re: Music macro trends

Were there any corresponding charts with # of songs, or profits earned?

Not that I saw, but you can find all sorts of things elsewhere on the web. One of the things that's harder to come by is any reasonable semblance of profits in [more]

Peak Apple

OK, time for a discussion. I'm not even sure I believe what I'm about to write, but the thought has been nagging, so here goes.

In a recent quarter, around 70% of Apple revenues came from the iPhone, and an even higher percentage of profit. [more]

Re: Trump Surges in NH!

Ever the contrarian, I like having many contenders.

Yeah, but that doesn't matter. After the first couple of states there will be fewer than half as many in the race, no matter who wins in Iowa and New Hampshire. That's just how it [more]

Re: My question for Hillary

That is not my question. Why did she even create a questionable situation?

1. Because it was common practice.

2. Because it wasn't against the law, or any regulations at the time.

3. Because it wasn't "a [more]

This happened to a friend of mine last year. We were about to rip out the wall and look at his shower control when I noticed that the pipe holding the shower head wasn't tight.

Re: Good thing this isn't Greece!

Of course, the major difference is that Germany makes their own mistakes with their own money. Greece is making their mistakes with other people's money.

If only that were true. The airport is being funded by the European Investmenbt [more]

Music macro trends

Nothing really surprising here, and no pithy (ha!) commentary from me, but I found this chart interesting: sales of music in its many and varied forms, from 8-track to cassette to CD to digital and more.

Good thing this isn't Greece!

The spiffy new, swell, high tech airport in Germany is five years overdue, vastly and embarrassingly over budget (by billions), has run through three architects, numerous project managers, and uncountable subcontractors trying to fix the problems [more]

Re: Buy, or rent a house?

In my area, 200,000 can get you a nice home. Nothing super fancy, but nice and in a good neighborhood with fairly decent schools. Very middle class. Depending on the mortgage terms, taxes, insurance, etc. your monthly payment would be around 1200 [more]

I don't see anybody arguing that in twenty years we'll be using fossil fuel powered vehicles for anything other than niche applications. At the outside twenty-five years. We're all predicting the future and much can go unexpectedly wrong (or [more]

Re: The GOP Hates The Debate Process They Create

Personally I would like it if they limited the debates to four.

Three debates of four.
1st vs 4th vs 7th vs 10th
2nd vs 5th vs 8th vs 11th
3rd vs 6th vs 9th vs 12th
