  1. http://globaleconomicanalysis.blogspot.com/2012/10/drumbeat-of-weaker-revenues.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MishsGlobalEconomicTrendAnalysis+%28Mish%27s+Global+Economic+Trend+Analysis%29Just as a note Mish is a perma-bear. I read him all the time and he writes great stuff, but you have to look at his writings accounting for his slant.Understood but you can understand his logic right? High public debt, low growth prospects, and high FT unemployment is a recipe for disaster. http://www.investorsfriend.com/asset_performance.htm

  3. to the contrary, only insane conspiracy theorists think the numbers are illegitimateI don't think it's a conspiracy but I would like to know how 114,000 new jobs, less than the average for the year, reduced unemployment by .3%? In July, 163,000 jobs were added and unemployment went up. Someone do the math for me. Not sure how it's calculated.Remember there's a numerator and denominator in the calculation.

  5. Its been revised, as you can see here ... Somehow each revision lowers the "unemployment" ratehttp://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/unemployment-charts
  6. No. From twitter: The scorecard: Private sector job growth under Bush: -646k. Under Obama: +967k. I think you're forgetting GW Bush was in fact dumb as a rock but he was handed the aftermath following the dot com crash and the fall after the climax of the housing bubble his predecessor put in motion. Assuming your quoted numbers are accurate.So Bush should blame Clinton for his predicament....but Obama shouldn't blame Bush for his?They all made mistakes. It seems everyone blames Bush, but all three played a role.

  8. Does anyone actually think unemployment/underemployment is improving? Sure if you consider people benefiting from these great numbers: those "lucky" enough to be forced into part-time work or excluded "discouraged" workers who are sipping margaritas at their beach side residence. Unemployment has NOT improved http://www.shadowstats.com/alternate_data/unemployment-charts http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/06/business/economy/us-added-114000-jobs-in-september-rate-drops-to-7-8.html?_r=1&pagewanted=all
  9. That likely will be everywhere within a couple of years and could very well impact all dotcoms.Next day shipping is $5/per item on Prime, not $5 for the whole order. Still a good deal when you're overnighting a kayak for only $5 but a bit different than laid out above.I thought it was 3.99? Did it go up?$4 or $5, still a great bargain. You're probably right though. You can barely ship a pencil these days for $4 and get it within a few days.Prime instant streaming is a big perk too as it works seamlessly in HD quality on my $60 bluray player.Overall, i'm convinced the prime price point is actually too low at this time.
  10. Last I checked the free book perk required a kindle device (not just an app on an iPhone/iPad).Yes of course, its the kindle free book per month. I just meant in general you have more options to read without being tied down to specific devices. I read Moneyball for example on my iPad, Blackberry, and Kindle.
  11. Big fan! - Unlimited two day shipping and one day shipping is only $5 (which is a bargain as you could order many items for only $5). - Amazon instant video is expanding every month. I can stream all the seasons of 24 at no additional cost. They added Glee, Sons of Anarchy, and Discovery channel recently. - Kindle lending library allows you to borrow one free book a month. This alone can be a $10-$15 a month benefit as they have some great books you can borrow. This is a great perk as you read top kindle books free on the computer, smartphone, kindle, blackberry, iPad, etc... while syncing your last read page. So you are not tied down to one vendor and their devices, such as Apple, while having the free book perk.
  12. Maybe someone could get an episode number ot title. I bet its available somewhere like on demand, netflix, or prime Edit: Netflix doesn't have it on Instant but does have the disc - Collection 7, Disc 1.Thanks, found it pretty inexpensive on amazon for $9.
  13. I dunnoif it is someone from the academic side who truley was not involved in this it could be fine let's not assume everyone at the entire institution is tainted Erickson may not be involved at all, but keeping him just screams further cover-up. Huge mistake. PSU trustees seem to be betting this will simply go away at some point, somehow I doubt that.Agreed and the fact the new Pres has a PHD in Geography?! I think they need a bit more than that right now.
  14. Change your WiFi's router channel to 1 or 11. If your not moving around, its probably interference (microwave oven, cordless phones, etc...)
  15. Wow, nevermind. Wasn't that interested and definitely not paying that.Not sure about the iPhone but the droid market has an app that will do it for free (I believe sprint wants it disabled on their phone to get people to pay the $30/mo though (at least as far as I have read).Android market several free apps that allow free tethering - Easy Tether and PDA Lite are the most popular. Google has said they want free tethering on all their phones. They definitely dont see eye to eye with the carriers on this but it seems like Google is winning out (for the time being)I don't understand why you should have to pay more for tethering. Aren't you already paying for the data package?Bandwidth isn't unlimited in a cost sense for ATT. People take advantage of the system and download GB of data from their laptops. Degrading performance and making everyone else suffer. In the past that was subsidized by everyone paying $30/mo when it actually should have cost only $10-15/mo for 98% of customers. Wireless providers need to get the ball rolling on QoS so that the people not gaming the system can get their data packets processed before the "unlimited" hoarders.
