Re: SectorSurfer

It looks like they have produced ETF based, asset class screens similar to what many of us have done in GTR1.

What they basically are claiming is that given up any 12 symbols of ETFs, mutual funds and/or stocks you can run a screen

We've discussed the Magic Band a lot here and in particular the investment Disney made in it but we haven't talked a lot about the technology and how leading edge this is.

Re: MouseBucks - Disney Names Staggs COO

An article states that Disney sources say it isn't a guarantee that Staggs will definitely be CEO, but I am assuming at this point that it is.

Part of that compensation included $2.8 million to his pension. It obviously doesn't matter, but should we be giving an executive like him a pension account in addition to everything else?
