And the option to pay in livestock and vegetables. Bitcoin is an asset not a currency.
It was from the practise of taking those loans and repackaging them to give them a higher rating than they deserved. If there was no practise of hiding bad loans, the mortgage lenders wouldn't have issued them. The failing didn't come from the principle of lending by mortgage brokers - Lehman Brothers was an investment bank that traded the bad loans to investors. The investment banks lied to mortgage brokers and investors about the reliability of this practise and covered...
Broadwell is now coming early 2015, Intel's pushing ahead with Skylake in the 2nd half of the year, which is the successor to Broadwell. If Apple goes with Broadwell at all, it will be early 2015 and Skylake in either late 2015 or early 2016. If Broadwell-Y doesn't perform well enough for a Retina display and high enough CPU performance, Skylake-Y will probably make up for it.
When you apply for a mortgage or other loan, they do checks to ensure that you can pay back what you borrow and the amount you apply for is limited to your earning potential. You can't leverage your income 100:1 or anywhere near that. Being able to leverage assets in trading by so much goes against the idea that you can't gamble on credit. A casino won't let you buy things on a credit card because it's money you don't have. In foreign exchange trading, they have to use...
If you play higher-end games and plan to upgrade the GPU then it would be better, otherwise not really. If it's the 2008 one here with the 2600XT:http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/mac_pro/specs/mac-pro-eight-core-2.8-2008-specs.htmlthe CPU is about 30% faster than the 2011 mini but the mini GPU is 20% faster. If you get a 680 for ~$300, that would be 12x faster than the Mini for...
Most things people take on debt for act as collateral. The collateral in leveraging is the shares but as was the case with GTAT, they can drop over 90% in minutes. There's no way this company with $3.5m in assets could come close to covering $1b so why let them or anyone else make trades like that? Forex trading goes above 1000:1 leverage. Could you get a $25m mortgage on a $25k salary? You do need to be able to take on a loan more than your income but the banks place...
It wasn't Morgan Stanley's $1b, they just allowed the trade. Morgan Stanley would have got a small fee for the trade. The $1b didn't even exist. Rochdale only had $3.5m in capital but they can leverage it:http://www.cityindex.co.uk/cfd-trading/what-is-cfd-trading.aspx"CFDs are traded on leverage, meaning you pay only a small fraction of the total trade value to open your position rather than paying for it in full, this is known as margin. For example, you can trade...
That's because she's working the cheap seats. First class looks a bit different:They get the gold iPhones.
Not the 15" model but with Broadwell, I'd see most of the power going to the GPU. I'm really happy they're moving ahead with Skylake, there's even samples out:http://chinese.vr-zone.com/131337/intel-skylake-s-cpu-sampling-greenlow-platform-will-on-schedule-as-2015-q2-10192014/That gets round that whole Haswell refresh rubbish this year. If they skip Broadwell, it'll be like two generations in one go. It also supports PCIe 4 so they can potentially get 5K support into the...
The authentication is just encryption key pairs. I described an example of how this would work here:http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/155482/home-button-fingerprint-sensor-in-iphone-5s-would-give-apple-a-new-leg-up-on-the-competition/80#post_2261085http://www.synaptics.com/en/press-releases/securepad-release.php"Instead of creating passwords, end users complete a fingerprint authentication on the laptop to register a public/private key pair, unique to the laptop, the user...
