Banks must love me

The letter starts out by making you feel real special: "It's not every day we offer someone a line of credit up to $XYZ." Okay, now I feel real special. I feel pride, I feel joy, I feel superior. Imagine that, someone out there really cares for me and wants to offer me $XYZ. The — Continue reading Β»

Boring Microsoft

    πŸ“‚ Uncategorized         πŸ—¨ No Comments

Whatever happened to the Microsoft we used to know? As I was graduating from college eons ago, it was anyone's dream to work there. This was a nimble, forward-looking, cutting edge place, cranking out one great product after another. It had the power, the glory, the money, and Bill Gates. Gates is still there, but — Continue reading Β»

Holiday Calories

    πŸ“‚ Uncategorized         πŸ—¨ No Comments

Christmas and gluttony! How well they go together. Every year it’s the same thing. You promise yourself moderation, and it ends up being all but an empty vow. Chocolate at work, chocolate at home, chocolate at parties, chocolate everywhere. How's one to resist? A rational mind would give it up by now and surrender to — Continue reading Β»

Google adsense ads have always been pretty drab. They're basically a small rectangle with some text and a link to the advertiser's Web site. Here's Google's attempt to make adsense a little more interesting by applying a little holiday style. I can't say if the holiday spirit background has made them more prominent to generate — Continue reading Β»

Bush calls the leaking of the domestic eavesdropping program a "shameful act". Come on man, get a grip and stop acting all shocked and surprised over this revelation. Like this was a great big secret. Judging by his remark, Bush doesn't seem so happy about the revelation that makes him appear like a dictator. Whatever — Continue reading Β»

Google's irrational exuberance

    πŸ“‚ Uncategorized         πŸ—¨ No Comments

Who's market cap is greater than eBay and Yahoo combined, greater than six time that of Amazon, greater than Cisco's, nearly twice that of Dell's, and just about half of Microsoft's? Google, of course. In one of the pages of my book, under the Fundamental Analysis section, I write: "Ask yourself whether the company deserve — Continue reading Β»

Domain scam

    πŸ“‚ Uncategorized         πŸ—¨ No Comments

You've got to give credit to the ingenuity of some slick operators out there trying to make a quick buck. A couple of days ago I received this fax attempting to rope me in for a domain name with a .US TLD (Top Level Domain) extension. I own the .COM equivalent and I have no — Continue reading Β»
