Re: User Experience and Value in Products

VitaminD,

I am trying to do that right now using Shopify in an otherwise mature and crowded marketplace.

Lulumon of course did this. Under Armour did it, prior to the internet.

I am live! 4 blogs to start. Simple, basic, but you know what, I am putting up critical and unique information you won't find anywhere else with such detail and competence and specificity. I will add more sophistication later.

Re: department store sales

This issue has to be regional as well. In my neck of the woods the malls were full. Parking was overflowing. Not just in the major malls, but in the mid to upscale secondary malls as well. I took special notice of it. Crowds do not necessarily equal [more]

Shopify Update

It took a little longer than I thought. 3.5 hours for a simple website that is comprised of a home page and then a blog page with multiple blogs and SEO stuff. But once I got the system down it became a breeze! My next website I will probably be able [more]

Re: Clinton Fund Disbands

Duma,

It is amazing the extent partisans will go to, to justify any behavior. Not as bad as those who deny that the Holocaust happened and try to re-write history, but in the same framework.

Re: Psychology question for Saul

Of course sharing publicly affects how decisions are made. Owning a stock yourself with your own money changes how you invest as well. You will invest differently if you are managing other people's money. Just try it. You don't do the same [more]

Re: Amazon a house of cards?

Saul,

Amazon like Tesla today is an ultimate "Rule Breaker" stock. Even more than 15 years later the critics are harping on the same things over and over and over again. The company never listens of course and investors who just [more]

Re: There goes some hope...

I will look deeper into the issue. One thing I remember is real estate agents trying to recruit me to be their closing attorney (I said no), and banks wanting to give me $1.5 million mortgage when the house I wanted only required a $500k [more]

Re: Don't Make Me Think

Yes, GE has cornered that market in some respects, um hum, Arcam.

But of all the 3D options we got in and out with profits and held on only to Arcam, for profit At least Mauser and I and a few others. So that was a good distinction we made. [more]
