Google (goog) closed at  $396.63   -12.98 (-3.17%) it is easy to predict that this will close above $400.00 Thursday JUL 9, considering that it closed around $410.00 Monday JUL-6 after the anouncement that it will develop a PC Operating System. My guess is that the ensuing war with Microsoft (msft) willl produce some volatility in GOOG stock between 405 and  $420.00 for next 3 months as long as Googles anti-trust lawsuits remains NOT-Negative to Google. That is my prediction as a newbie, will see how it holds up.

What Does A-Shares Mean?
Shares in mainland China-based companies that trade on Chinese stock exchanges such as the Shanghai Stock Exchange and the Shenzhen Stock Exchange. A-shares are generally only available for purchase by mainland citizens; foreign investment is only allowed through a tightly-regulated structure known as the Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (QFII) system.

Typically, the most preferred tier of classified stock, offeringmore voting rights than Class B Shares. Class A shares are designed to insulate management from the short-termswings of Wall Street, by allowing those in management tocontrol a small amount of the equity of the company but still maintain voting power. These types of shares are notsold to the public and cannot be traded, which supporters of the dual-share system say allows management to focus onlong-term goals. In some cases, a company will designate shares to be Class A shares even though they have less voting rights, and designate the shares with more voting rights to be Class B shares; the decision is left up to theindividual company.

Constitution Geek and Geek-otocracy

  • The Administration’s nomination of¬† the Honorable Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court vacancy position clearly points to the ascendancy of the Constitution Geeks or to the Geek-otocracy that has begun to dominate the world, geeks are ruling from Football punting and lawn care to web publishing and Google. The Internet is facilitating and reinforces especifity of knowledge with awareness of its globality. Is a new way of changing the tools and resources of¬† the world funding its¬† ventures. A Google way.
  • This is why I am convinced that Mr. Robert Gates who is a USAF (SAC) veteran is the best choice to lead the GOP and will be President of the USA in the near future. The Aero Space Age demanded creativity of solutions like never before the Internet being it most famous child but also produced Integrated Circuits and even unintentionally changed comedy, yes through George Carlin who was a BombNav tech that worked in B-52’s,¬† an airman USAF (SAC, Barksdale AFB)
  • Today’s reading: I may take you a week to digest however is necessary reading in my opinion. From Wired Magazine: “The New New Economy: More Startups, Fewer Giants, Infinite Opportunity”
  • Today’s term: What Does 30-Year Treasury Mean?:¬†¬† A U.S. Treasury debt obligation that has a maturity of 30 years. The 30-year Treasury used to be the bellwether U.S. bond but now most consider the 10-year Treasury to be the benchmark. The 30-year Treasury will generally pay a higher interest rate than shorter Treasuries to compensate for the additional risks inherent in the longer maturity. However, when compared to other bonds, Treasuries are relatively safe because they are backed by the U.S. government.

Twitter: 4Sale: back 2Old failed ideas?

The buzz is that Google or Microsoft should buy Twitter because it will improve their business
Amazing just after the Wall Street crash and people are still thinking with their BUBBLE HAT.
Why is all of this hubris in my opinion?

First:

First is necessary to mention that I love Twitter un-apologeticaly, why? Results, long awaited results. Do you remember getting your first 300 baud modem/ Mine was a used Hayes & back then browsing was an art or an adventure, :-D  we knew the pin-outs of the connectors and basic code, so that we could get the basic and latest news from afar and from bulletin boards in the know with their finger on the pulse LOL. Ham radio enthusiasts worked hard to rig their radios to computers blah blah blah …the things we dreamed we could do if we only had the right tools. Well that tool has arrived sweetly: Twitter, actually tool
My knowledge has grown like an understanding and satisfaction of knowing amazing people as they live their lives, faster with Twitter than with any other method available 2 the public, Price tag: $$ Invaluable.
Twitter and the Twitterverse (Twitter universe) is an awesome resource because it has a fundamental sound engine and truly is a system made up of many independent tools: reTweetRadar, nearby tweets and many more. Many hundred of thousands feel this way and millions do similarly. In these there is a sense of unity and brotherhood/fellowship.
Twitter by itself is great but by itself lacks the sum power of what it is today. The Twitter universe is a system of independent companies what gives it its explosive power.
Google (GOOG)-Twitter is a win-win-win solution for both companies and Twitteverse
Microsoft-Twitter is a win-lose-lose, good for Microsoft (MSFT), bad for Twitter lousy for Twitteverse,
MSFT would not allow integration of all the integrated/synergyzed tools available for Twitter such as Tweetwasters, Twubble, Twitscoop, Twitter Analyzer, Qwitter an other & those to come. The MSFT mindset is allergic to those principles.
Why do I think the $1billion sale to Microsoft or Google is hubris at this point? Because the Gods of Corporate Destiny resemble the bickering self centered Gods of Mount Olympus more so than any other mythological set.
When one is to consider the fact that a fair share of today’s Twitter rise is a bubble created by the “break the record followers” effect so the novelty will subside leaving a faithful core that has been capable and willing to exploit Twitter’s premise of micro-blogging and I think most of it is intuitive knowing and perhaps that is why is so viral.
Learn 2 Live and Let Live.
Relax and pay attention.
