broader market seems to be holding up quite well after yesterdays sell off. better than I expected
Content is king. I heard they were having trouble lining up content providers, we'll see.
Will be really interesting to see if Apple can do to the cable companies what it did to the record labels with iTunes. "We'll give you this much for your content because we say so...."
Also news coming out that Netflix is in talks w/ cable cos to add Nflix as a premium cable channel to compete w/ HBO.
Rumors were that Apple was going to outbid BBC and Sky for English Premier League rights. If that's actually happens that will be huge
This is where having Steve Jobs around would help I think.
Thank gawd. Made back 1/2 yesterday's losses. Bought CTAS and TQNT pre-market which both were up a bit today. Sold some TIBX.
WTF, am I an idiot? I thought Apple were putting out a real TV, the fuck is this box??
Yes, I read rumors/speculation that it would be a true TV with everything built in (ethernet port, wifi, streaming services, etc.), and they would charge twice as much as the comparably sized televisions out now.
I actually like the set top box idea better. Thumbs up from me. I'd never own one myself (I have the Western Digital version of the same thing, WD TV SMP, and it's more open with formats), but since I have such a large percentage of my portfolio dedicated to a stock who would benefit greatly from this (GLUU), I'm happy.
edit: Yes yes, I know ATV3G supports H264, and H264 is the future, but damn...expecting people with large video libraries to convert it all to that format is asking a little much.
I have well over a terabyte of video in xvid format.
Thats bullshit then. I was expecting a real tv.
Never miss a chance to plug GLUU do you, eh?
Futures pointing to another gain, maybe you'll get back that other 1/2
Sorry, a bit of a knee-jerk. I'm doing well w/ it tho
I'm just messing with you, I dont care
Looks like I almost have. Forgot to mention I bought DB as well the other day. I'm up 5% in 2 days. May just take $ but I like the stock.
I think tomorrow will be good as well. I think jobs numbers are going to beat. We may end up with a pretty good week.
Doing well w/ GLUU, totally had my ass handed to me in GPXM...but I don't put much into OB stocks. Still it chaps my ass. PIPE is in the works for this one, I just know it.
Crushing the DOW today, up 1.3% across all positions versus .6% for the DOW. Its like Pamplona over here. Life is good again.
the market's going to rally like a mofo today.
