  thegoodanarchist: I can see why so many folks move to California. I am in NY now, and it is brutally cold. Has been for two weeks and we have another week to go before we have a chance to reach 32 F.

I used to love this kind of weather, but now I want to live in Costa Rica.

  WannaBe: Well, it's been almost 5 hours since I did the update/patch, so far so good.

(This patch can only be downloaded if you have Win10, other versions of Windows have to wait until 1/9 for the Tuesday Windows Patch)

  WannaBe: GoPro to exit drone camera bidness, slash staff, GoPro also announced 4th Qtr revenue of $340M, down $200M from 4th Qtr of a year earlier (That's 37% short-fall)

Stock GPRO have plunged 20% to around $6.00

Disclaimer: I do not own any GPRO, or GPRO equipment/camera

Jan-08-18  chessmoron: I'm very impressed of how a Chinese company, DJI (models like the Phantom and Mavic), has pretty much seated on top of commercial drones.

Pretty much every youtubers who vlogs used DJI products.

The Uber business model seems unprofitable to me. Seems like it is even *not possible* for it to ever be profitable.

Might be best to buy AMZN instead.

Yes, it can. But that is speculation, not investing.

At this point in my life, I have enough going on that I am not looking for additional "fun".

To each his own, though.

See if you have AMD Chip, right click on "My Computer" -> Properties then look for "Processor". Before you try to update your system.
