A while ago I wrote about Internet Safety. Last year MySpace/Facebook, Barack Obama (this is probably the bright side, if you believe Barack is a good guy) This year Twitter revolution, Iran; SMS (text message) + online BBS, Urumqi incident (what I call a terrorist attack/organized killing against innocent civilians); Cyber attacks, notice the recent […]
nVidia got no love from the street these days. After yesterday’s earning (earning call here), the stock dropped more than 10% today amid weak (margin) forecast. This exemplifies that the market tends to be short sighted.
(Update) Many people (such as DBANotes) think IBM is the ultimate loser in the Sun/Oracle deal. I think the deal is not necessarily bad news for IBM. Here is my rationale.

This reminded me that Chinese Internet companies are coming of age. Two interesting stories Charles told on the show: 1) Two MIT professors are the earliest investors for Sohu, they put in […]
I got this email from spammer, it feels very much like a real one except in the end it says “please act within 24 hours”. You know how desparate the spammers want your identity. Be careful about those messages look like from eBay and PayPal.
