I found this program when doing research for Huntsman (NYSE:HUN). I found value investor Jean Marie Eveillard has a little of Huntsman stocks at gurufocus. Noticed there are some video clips for Jean Eveillard in this gurufocus web page, including one from YouTube.

So I looked around and found this program.

Nokia 5800 XM: video playback, game, bluetooth and podcast

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I got to play more with my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (XM) phone in the weekend. The following are the things I tried.

1) Video playback: I found there are some Nokia sample videos and a .wmv video (transferred from my PC Windows media player). Both played without problem. However, when I copied some Apple Dev movie (mpeg-4 format?), it only plays the audio.

2) Game: the Bounce game comes with the phone is a bit challenging for me, as you may know I don’t play computer or smartphone game often.

A new way to listen to NPR marketplace

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Via Podcast. Partially inspired by an idea suggested at bbs. But I want to automate it a bit more, here is the software: DopplerRadio. It has both iTune and Windows (Media Player) version. Here is a detailed Windows guide written by Jake Ludington.

The MarketPlace RSS feed is:
http://feeds.americanpublicmedia.org/MarketplacePodcast

The same site also has feed to MartkPlace Morning Report etc.

After download it (the mp3) to PC, I did “sync” (Windows Media Player Sync) it to my Nokia 5800 so that I can listen to it when joggling. It worked beautifully.

Now I started to look at “Music Player” icon on Nokia 5800, I found there is this Podcast icon sits besides Music Player. So I will try that “direct” option next time, saving some hoops 🙂

Bonus material: how to burn music from CD to Nokia 5800

Lynch and Buffett talked about downturn

Reading Time: < 1 minute

In this bear market, we can watch Cramer, read WSJ, Yahoo Finance, Google Finance etc. But all this can not substituted “reading what the real masters are thinking”.

With that in mind, here is Buffett’s talk about US economy Money available, cheap, due to rate cuts, quote the article:

Buffett said that what has taken place “is a re-pricing of risk and an unavailability of what I might call ‘dumb money,’ of which there was plenty around a year ago.”

and another my favorite:

“It’s sort of a little poetic justice, in that the people that brewed this toxic Kool-Aid found themselves drinking a lot of it in the end,” he said in reference to some of the large investment banks that were involved in designing and marketing complex investments that have soured in recent months and have generated billions in losses.

Peter Lynch is the legendary fund manager of Fidelity Magellian. Here is a PodCast (MP3) of his. He talked why we should not try to time the market.
