Not sure why you feel so strongly...to point out the negative aspects of Yokohama. First off, Yokohama (like New Jersey) has some very beautiful areas...why judge so harshly Apple's/Japan's decision to have an R&D center there? Second, do you know for a fact that Tsunashima-higashi is dirty/graffiti-ridden?...because it's not. ​Third, the only area of Yokohama that is not as nice is the industrial/port area which is only a small portion of the city. There is some graffiti...
Off topic here, but are you a professional writer? If not you should be. Great prose in a poetic and appealing style.
Yes, and if I may add...gaming will probably start with technology somewhere between Halo and Angry Birds...since this is where most people would delight in. Not sure why some believe Apple TV meant for Angry Birds or Candy Crush...those are definitely iPhone/iPad games. Not sure also why some believe Apple TV must have Halo-quality games. There is definitely middle ground. Halo-like games can remain with PS4 and Xbox. Or Apple can later launch a Apple TV-G which costs...
I'm not disagreeing with whatever algorithm your are trying to explain...but realize this:The general population has no idea what the algorithm is or how it works...so it IS ROCKET SCIENCE! Therein lies the next big issue of the civilized world...control of the media.Media controls knowledge/truth. Knowledge is power.If the media is allowed to be controlled by any one ideology then there will be a dangerous imbalance of power. People are becoming concerned with Google's...
On the contrary...while Daniel's  piece is full of opinion, it still enlightens many who should be concerned with this topic and with Lyons. There aren't any facts to discredit Daniel's assertions. We should be critical of both sides and rightfully so. If anything, you as a truth-seeker should encourage AI to author more of these contentious issues.
Yes, artificially pushing stock up/down is part of the definition but also it's important to question whether or not any "one group" CAN sell or buy to influence the stock is also a factor in that definition. One cannot manipulate if they cannot pragmatically influence. I don't think the drop from $700 was manipulation. Instead it was a combination of: quick rise to $700, revenue growth numbers and a little FUD from the media which made it ripe for shorts and those just...
There were indeed moments in time (before and during the iPhone launch) when many were critical/suspect of the iPhone's immediate ability to be a success. Just because the future proved it a positive revolution does not belie that fact. Your statement is ridiculous, not Tim Cooks. So give us a few examples of Slurpy's mindless drivel. OTOH you given us more examples of drivel and misinformation than any of us deserve. Which reminds me to block you...right about...now.
Hey sunshine...no screen, eh? Further evidence as to how disconnected you are with reality and with the masses. It's been entertaining, but now tiring...another added to the blocked list.
Sog, glad you're doing good on the swings, but I think most would agree with Anantks that this is not considered manipulation but simply cyclical trading (similar to ex-div dates). I know it's much more complicated than that and again, cheers to you for doing well with AAPL. I will be the first to admit that I've never figured out some of the crazy drops in share price...could be manipulation of sorts. Awhile ago, many of us at TMO forum (now defunct) were pulling hairs on...
You have a point, but for many, broadband is still slow and some areas with data caps/limits.For these situations, you can agree that downloading the content first is more practical and efficient.Also, realize that some HD content is data intensive... versus the Netflix level of [low] quality.I agree it's up to argument.
