    Shiiiiiit. I'm always on the side of America: G Washington, A Lincoln, brothers Hamilton & Jackson and specially Ben Franklin. If that involves investment abroad, so be it, as long as the Benjamin's keep flowing my way.

    ^ Do you think there is a new awakening by consumers regarding the American Automotive Industry?

    Yes, a bit. And F is by far the strongest positioned in terms of its quality and products, but its global exposure is high. Although, I hear that Chevy Volt is doing very well.

    Thats why I like VW, good quality, diversified (Scania, Bentley, etc) and Audi sales continue to kick ass (I happen to drive an Audi).

    S6 I presume. I was actually thinking about getting an A4 in December. How do you like your car?

    GLUU smashed estimates yesterday, non-GAAP revs over estimates by around 3 million, losses at 2 cents a share, estimated at 10 cents. IMO proved Freemium model DOES work, stock up to 4.30 on high volume right now. At this rate we'll be profitable by next quarter. New analyst rankings coming in. Looks like we got bumped from a 6 to an 8 dollar target.

    w00t.

    Haha, 5.73 :(

    I was a dummy and bought in right before we lost our AAA status. Had I waited...I could have got in at the high 2s.

    Their games are already scalable for Apple TV, were on Kindle Fire at launch, I have no prob holding.

    The Nightworld and Rogue Racing games were big letdowns....but Stardom is (unexpectedly to me) rocking and making up for that. Never underestimate the power of games marketed to teenage girls.

    Nah, A8. I'd be a risk with a faster car. Love it, drives like an airplane.



    Means you are making a small investment looking for a home run, not a small safe return.

    HOLY CRAP. Knew it was a dog, but didn't know the fleas would be that bad.

    Looking at Akami now. May enter on a pullback.
