Reading Time: 2 minutes I joined Twitter back in March 2008, and it’s been 14 years since I joined it. I don’t remember the exact reason I joined it, but I think one reason is probably in the early days of iOS (iPhone) app development, many developers are on Twitter as well. In recent years, the platform has expanded… Continue reading Twitter

Reading Time: < 1 minute I got this problem 2 days ago, exactly same as it being described at Stackoverflow. My environment: Xcode 3.1.4, iPhone OS 3.1.2, Mac OS 10.5.8 (yeah, I am a little old school). Struggled a bit, tried creating new certificates, using old certificates, blah blah blah. Nothing, still see the same message after I added the… Continue reading The iPhone development provision problem
Reading Time: 3 minutes I started writing this post a while ago, after I bought Barnes Noble nook (e-reader), and Barnes Noble stock (NYSE:BKS). BN recently changed its brand of e-reader app on Android from BN to nook (it already use nook on iPhone and iPad), so nook is more than an e-reader, it’s at the center of BN’s… Continue reading Barnes and Noble: a declining book selling empire?

Reading Time: 3 minutes I sold my few shares of Palm Friday morning shortly after opening. Palm (Nasdaq:PALM) share dropped 29% on Friday after horrific earning outlook (marketWatch). Palm is increasingly likely to say “bye bye” to its loyal customers in a year or two. Quote sobelmedia: ====== I’m never going to forget my very first Palm Pilot in… Continue reading Is PALM here to stay: II
Reading Time: < 1 minute My old friend, high end restaurant with family appeal, and a legendary founder (company web site). I traded it (Nasdaq:RUTH) back in 2005 shortly after its IPO. Obviously with the recession, high end was hurt badly, RUTH was no exception. To make matter worse, RUTH bought a seafood chain in early 2008 using debt. The… Continue reading Ruth’s Chris Steak House
Reading Time: < 1 minute From NBR at PBS. Here is series one. This is a topic of behavioral finance.
Reading Time: < 1 minute Got some Developers Diversified Realty (NYSE:DDR) shares. A bit late. But as an old saying goes “better late than never”. Why I said “late”? Because the smart money already bought a boat load of this in Feb this year (Developers Diversified Enters Into Agreement to Sell 30 Million Shares to the Otto Family). Quote: it… Continue reading Bought some Developers Diversified Realty DDR
