      I think it is safe to say that DIA’s 50 day moving average was broken. But Nasdaq is still nowhere close to the 50 da MA. I have to say that since I am betting for while now on correction and my main instrument are DIA puts I had a very good day today. Maybe you long AAPLs could use DIA’s puts to hedge your long positions too. I still have bunch of QQQ puts open.

    Hard-to-remove malware locks devices and tries to make people pay $300 fines, says security firm Lookout

    “A fresh strain of Android malware has emerged that locks people out of their phones, then delivers a fake message from the FBI telling them they have broken the law by visiting pornographic websites.

    The ScarePakage malware then tries to persuade them to pay a $300 fine to its creators via payment service MoneyPak, according to researchers from security company Lookout Mobile Security.”

          Speaking of math errors, after the AAPL split my Scottrade account showed well over $1m in it. Online, at least, at the end of the trading day the account updated to 7 times the shares, but didn’t adjust to the post split price until market open the next day. My retirement goal was reached, but only for a short time! :-)

            You know I’ve been checking out HLF. Appreciate you mentioning it. According to Google F. HLF has 108% institutional ownership. No shizz. 108. I went there because I was wondering who else occupied their sector. I can see them going in several other directions in terms of activities identity wise. Currently they’re labelled a multi level marketing company. Their organization fascinates me. And the activist whose trying to bring them down has so far spent $50 million on his campaign. He’s got headwind because George sorry and Carl itchy are long.

    Anyone noticed that now half of the result page on google search is paid advertisement? It used to be one column on the right with 5 to 6 ads (actually it used to be nothing). I also noticed that majority of the front page “regular” results are overwhelmingly links to products. Not sure if that is not some kind of soft advertisement. I remember getting more informative and more academic stuff when searching for general terms like in physics. Now I have a feeling there are many more product results.

    • rastard

      rastard 4:45 am on July 25, 2014 7 days ago

      I think it depends what you search for. Searching for “quantum mechanics” or “Bohr model”, I don’t see *any* ads at all. Searching for “Hawaii hotels”, however, the entire (yes, entire, not just majority) first screen is all ads until one clicks down on the scroll bar, and then 2nd screen is still 50% ads.

      I suspect that product-ish searches get tons of ads because typically that’s what people are actually looking for — but yes, it can be frustrating to be overloaded with ads when one is trying to find other information.

      Bing actually is all ads as well on their first hotel results screen, however, at least the right side of their first screen is an informational “onebox”. Duckduckgo has the top 3/4 of the screen occupied by ads, but does have 1/4 dedicated to actual search results.

      JP: “Wikia Search” was Jimmy Wales’ (of wikipedia fame) search engine. Announced with a whole lot of hype in 2008, it went down in flames with a year.

        Rastard. Did you try searching for the *Quantum Mechanics Hotel*? Of the *Bohr Motel*? Maybe that might produce some ads. If it doesn’t then the void should be filled because it’d give nerds a holiday destination point for them and their friends and families re conferences etc. Great theme too for the restaurants and gift shops. lol

        Look out Rastard. If your experience is like mine, now you’ll be *bombarded* with ads for containment vessels, cloud chambers, nuclear reactors, etc. ;-)
        For a time, after a single errant click, the internet gods (Google, I suppose,) thought they could sell me women’s shoes. For weeks 25% of the ads I saw were for women’s shoes. Then I did some research on tennis shoes and it all switched over to athletic shoes of various kinds. At least they figured out my gender.

        RE WickiSearch: I never knew anyone tried that. I’ read the link. Maybe the present environment would allow this idea to be more successful? (Of course it really shouldn’t be a wicki, it would need to be structured more like conventional search engine, but combined with simple crowd-sourced feedback.)

        I honestly think the original Google model could work for a Wicki-like search and for Wickipedia. Currently I give Wikipedia $20/year to help support them. But I would have no problem with a single, small, non-animated, text only ad on every Wickipage—similar to what Google originally did with search. I know it wouldn’t make much money for a business, but it would probably be enough for Wikipedia.
        Perhaps it could be designed to let users control their own information while helping to support organizations they like. Maybe people who donate $5 or$10 could forgo the ads for a year.
        Heck, I think even think the NY Times could be swimming in cash if they lowered their online subscription to $20/year.

          If Google currently has 47,756 employees. How many are regularly dedicated to Search? Re search. The list of what services and features people need and want is pretty simple. Not sure why Google’s competition pales? Seems so rudimentary.

          I think future is in automated search agents which will search on your behalf. Will gather information from multiple sources and filter junk and fluff out and present you with more focused results void of advertisement.

    That is one word no one has used to describe Apple, at least since Steve Jobs came back from 12 years of exile in 1997 to set the company on a path that has made it far more-equal than any others in the tech sector.

    Yet, on Thursday, Pedro de Noronha, managing partner at hedge fund Noster Capital, suggested Apple could become “obsolete” in the next two to three years.

    Noronha made his comments on CNBC, saying that “make-believe” valuations in the tech sector may just catch up with Apple. Those valuations have resulted in stocks such as Facebook Inc. and Netflix Inc. seeing their shares go through dramatic swings this year.

    “You cannot put yourself in front of a moving train and tell it to stop, just because in theory it’s overvalued,” Noronha told CNBC, speaking of Netflix.”
