I have made an automated, advanced Bitcoin trading and analysis tool. It makes dealing with the interface of Mt.Gox bearable. This tool displays real-time charts based on price and market depth. Further their are functions to implement stop-loss orders and all trades can be carried out inside the tool. There is a lot more in their, but I have spent the last 2 days writing this thing and am tired. Give it a look and I think you will be amazed. There are more features to be unlocked with a small BTC donation. Click through for more.
Welcome to the next iteration in Apple development. Yesterday Steve and friends unveiled three new items at the Apple WWDC. iOS 5, iCloud and OSX 10.7 (Lion). I am still waiting for the video to become available on Apple’s podcast feed. It should become available this afternoon so I can update it.
So I saw this the other night: http://www.michelebachmann.com/debtceiling/. The debt ceiling is not the same thing as the national debt. The national debt may slow down but it won’t keep it from increasing and because the Federal Government is A) Authorized to spend almost a Trillion dollars in the next 6 months and B) $14,400,000,000,000 in debt at this point, the interest is one of the biggest contributors to the deficit at this point amounting to about $450 billion this year alone. The real solution for the REPUBLICANS, RAISE TAXES! Hear me out, it’s crazy like a fox. Continue reading →
Stop me if you’ve heard this. The priorities for contributing for your retirement accounts are as follows:
- 401(k) up to the company match.
- Maximum ROTH IRA contribution
- 401(k) up to the 16(k) limit
- Taxable options
The problem is that this mantra is just repeated so often that individuals take it as some sort of investment law like you should invest your age in percentage of bonds (more on that myth in another post). Given the current tax laws, there is a very low probability that this will actually be the most profitable. Click on to examine the numbers. Continue reading →
The rumor mill has virtually accepted that this year’s upcoming WWDC will be sans iPhone 5. The iPhone 4 was a pretty slick device when it premered in July 2010, but now that it’s getting a little long in the tooth, can Apple really afford to wait on a next gen device given that Android is virtually exploding? It seems that with a new Android device announced every couple of days, the HTC Sensational 4G with a host of new features being the most recent example, that everyday the halo that is Apple’s flag ship device is fading into the background. It may be an effort on the part of Apple to align more with the Christmas sales season rather than the less-popular mid-summer/pre-back-to-school that is much less popular for expensive smart phones. Time will tell, but one thing is for sure, the market will only ignore superior products for so long.
A lot has been talked about the congressional budget in the news lately. President Obama proposed a budget wich will lower the deficit by $1T over the next 10 years. This seems like a good idea until you realize that the national debt is about 14.1T today, and depending on future interest rates and how much more debt we add, we won’t be paying off the debt any time soon, by 2020 will be looking at a debt of about $20T by then. The republicans and the democrats are bitching and moaning about not cutting enough or cutting too much, but both of them are looking at cutting about the same amount from the same portion of the budget. The wrong portion.

Todd Rokita – IN (R), proposed an amendment to the continuing resolution (CR) budget measure that’s being used in place of an actual budget so that Congress can have something to piss about now that Healthcare is completely fixed. The amendment spells out a 5 year ban on step increases. This is beyond a terrible idea. It’s a stupid move that will likely leave the Government filled with even more incompetent workers and leave the good workers trying to make this country run with little reason to stay and almost no reason to work heard. The most stupid thing is that it doesn’t decrease the ‘budget’ deficit either. Continue reading →
Some congressmen are quietly shopping around the idea of allowing states to declare bankruptcy. Lead largely by the social and political conservatives this is seen as a solution to allow some states with dire financial conditions to restructure and get out from under crushing debt obligations the way that General Motors did. The liberals are out in force crying foul and whining about their union pensions and how unfair it would be to take away their pension. Even as a public employee, I don’t think that is the best argument. There is a much better argument that would more likely carry the day in a rational examination of the facts. Allowing states to go bankrupt would bankrupt just about every state.

The NFL will cut their rosters down to 75 by monday and 53 by about a week later. It’s a very tough time for NFL prospects because of the sheer numbers reality that there may be only a few spots available on the roster of many NFL franchises.
The following is a list of rumored/obvious products that could be made today with available technology but haven’t been due to some marketing or other non-technical reason. We have the technology, we can build it, TODAY! In case an executive from any of these companie’s comes by (haha), just know that in the even these products were made available, I would camp out like an Apple fanboi to get one on the first day.
