Re: Shadow banking system = $75 Trillion

Thank you, Wendy, for being so vigilant about these matters, including watching the canaries at the STLFSI. This stuff matters.

Re: Microsoft Admits Defeat, And May Have Just Won

What a thoroughly enjoyable post. And what a shake-up at Microsoft! I wonder how transforming the company culture is going to go, as well as the other massive business transitions you mention in your post. Giving up on the OS means betting the farm [more]

Re: OT: IBM trading

Well, as long as we're being off topic . . .

I took the opportunity when IBM fell below about 162 1/2 and then came back up to that level to sell some puts. Nothing magic about that price, it's just the first place IBM paused on its [more]

Re: Battery Life - Z3 compact vs. Iphone 6

I haven't bumped into problems with a RAM shortage, ever. I've had problems, typically around iOS and OS rollouts and that one iWork update, among others, but not RAM.

Re: Battery Life - Z3 compact vs. Iphone 6

Thank you for being a gracious good sport. I'll stop being silly for a moment -- just one! -- and attempt to clarify:

Re: Battery Life - Z3 compact vs. Iphone 6

Ah, the feature list. No debating the points the feature list makes!

I became especially enamored of feature list just a few months ago, when I bought a spanking brand new Kia Sedona:

Re: 13 years ago today.

I feel compelled to point out that Sony got there first. And made a lot more money. So did Microsoft. Also, GM was putting car radios in cars for decades before Car Play.

Harumph.

Re: Authenticate

Why would the device have to be on your wrist?

What an excellent question. There's a couple of answers to this.

The first answer comes from the "truly personal device" portion: This is a device that is in constant [more]

Re: Samsung unhappy with Microsoft fees

As Gruber sez: "That’s incredible. In all seriousness, could Microsoft be profiting from Android more than Google is?"

You want to open the door to your house? Authenticate: Get your keys out, your keys that have their unique shape, insert them, whatever the lighting or weather conditions, yada yada.

Re: FKA: LUK

That was supposed to be a Nixon joke -- you know, Ford's next. Then I see that the next thread really was Ford.

Re: Yikes - serious Reset All Settings bug in iOS 8?

Not exactly. If you are a user of iCloud Drive, then you are using Yosemite, which is still in beta.

It's Not A Watch!

It's not. Any more than the iPhone is a phone.

I was going to make a post detailing all the things the Apple Watch can and might be able to do, how various elements of it make it a game changer. Really, I was.
