That's not justification for allowing it, just for doing it. You can justify doing anything by saying it's profitable.This isn't like a company that actually produces something like Apple, this is a way of scamming investors out of parts of their investment. It reminds me of this scam:Taking fractions of money because they get rounded by the machines. Take small amounts from lots of people and nobody notices but why should they get away with it? Some of the things they do...
They're still free to trade, they just wouldn't be able to execute millions of different trades in microseconds for which there is no justification.If someone wants to buy $1b of a stock then they can do it. If they want to take that $1b of leverage to make a flurry of microsecond transactions to mess with human traders then they shouldn't be allowed to do...
Or Whole Foods Market:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole_foodhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole_Foods_MarketPoor Sunflower and Sprouts Farmers Market had to get round their generality:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprouts_Farmers_Markethttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunflower_Farmers_MarketAll they did was sell whole foods in a market first and picked the name.There is a Shoe Company btw:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shoe_CompanyThere seems to have been a software company...
They only need to know that it's falling, which they can tell form the accelerometer and gyro. Short falls won't be damaging so after a certain drop, they check if the device is facing down and then just keep twisting it mid-air so that it lands on the back.It could just be flexible corner pins, not a bag. It seems Jeff Bezos applied for this kind of thing...
Here's the setup process:http://www.businessinsider.com/heres-how-you-set-up-your-own-high-frequency-trading-operation-2010-6?op=1You certainly can't compete with them as an everyday trader. It would be like allowing one superfast robot in a race and telling all the other whiney human runners to just build their own robot.When it comes to phones, sure smartphones can happily wipe out dumbphones and not everyone will be able to produce something as complex as that but robot...
Are the computers set to never go to sleep including the drives? There's a checkbox in system prefs > energy saver for wake for network access that allows them to sleep but also be woken up over the network.
Yes, it's not Apple's DRM that's at fault here, it's that they made such a successful music player that other stores couldn't sell DRM-protected music for. It would be like a Blu-Ray manufacturer suing the largest DVD player manufacturer because their devices don't play Blu-Ray when everyone had DVD players, which affected sales of Blu-Ray discs.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RealNetworksReal didn't want their formats converted for playback:"On January 20, 2000,...
It's anti-competitive. Not everyone is allowed to point computer algorithms at the exchanges. The market is a way of transferring value between investors. When HFT firms report that they are making profits every day for years on end, something is clearly wrong with that system (not for them obviously). The reason they can win more reliably is they can see how everyone else is trading because of the way and speed they can execute their own trades and can adapt faster than...
Around $5b at an earlier evaluation so probably over 45m shares. I expect he'll bail out when it's high eventually but he's probably waiting on the buybacks.Apple still has to execute $22b in buybacks by December 2015 and they probably won't leave the bulk of it until later on.
One of the execs from Google said Chromebooks were at 50% of the education market a while ago. The education market isn't all that large in terms of purchases made by institutions and apparently these make up 85% of Chromebook purchases. Parents/students that buy laptops themselves aren't buying Chromebooks. Chromebook sales in 2013 were 2.1m and projected to be 5.2m this year. iPad sales in 2013 were 70m and projected to be 65m this year. Apple can make a device like...
