Dog Days

Global Positioning System (GPS) makers Tom Tom and Garmin are talking about how 2010 might be a growth year for GPS systems.

It's amazing how quickly that biz went from the hottest category around to something not that exciting that you can do on your phone if you need to.


Stocks are up so many want to find something to be positive about. The idea of a PC upgrade cycle beginning in 2h 09 is gaining steam.

Gizmodo adds fuel to the fire by getting excited about Intel's new laptop product cycle, which happens to be coordinated with Microsoft's Windows 7 release. It will be interesting to see whether there is a chance with really new product to halt the slide in average selling prices.


Microsoft is cutting price on the Xbox 360. I'm not buying it and I think a lot of other people won't as well. The console market is broken.


NJ stuff. Looks like Jon Corzine's Repulican opponent for the Governor's race in November, Chris Christie, shot himself in the foot. NJ101.5 broke the story over here yesterday.

Looks like Corzine will now be the favorite and not the underdog, which is a bummer. now has it as pretty even money.

This is a drag since as I've written before, I find Corzine's performance in his 1st term to have been very disappointing.


I watched the Allen Stanford (Antigua ponzi schemer) special on CNBC last night. I can't imagine a more boring villain.
