    Do you honestly think the US will default. even then, what happens. Is China going to invade the US? We don't have to worry about our northern border, do we?

    I hope it was clear from my post that I think our politicians are a bunch of fools and morons for letting this happen. But let's not confuse that with saying that we are "slaves." Certainly there are many, many social issues I would want to change as to health care, education and many others, but I think the US is still the envy of most of the world and has as much freedom as almost anywhere I can think off.

    Just so you know Canada, France, UK and Spain all carry debt that is about 85% of GDP. Japan is near 215%. The US is 'only' about 74%. It's all relative.

    Hey Morgan - Any charts to show what's happening with HALO? I just read this:

    Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc. ( HALO ) has moved higher as of late, but there could definitely be trouble on the horizon for this company. That is because HALO is now in overbought territory with an RSI value of 73.9. Furthermore, estimates for the Halozyme Therapeutics, Inc. have been coming down, pushing it to a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell). This suggests that investors may better off exiting this stock before it falls back to Earth.

    Apple is one of the most valuable companies in the US. Yet they pay nothing in taxes.
    Apple paid $14.7 Billion dollars in taxes last year. The only American companies that paid more were Exxon and Chevron.*

    If you are going to try to understand the past performance of a company in an industry, and thus be able to make educated predictions about its future performance, it does no good whatsoever to make stuff up.

    Did BBRY pay a higher rate of taxes on its revenue than AAPL? Perhaps this is a competitive disadvantage to being in Canada. Or perhaps BBRY's accountants were not being responsible stewards of the shareholders money.

    Or maybe taxes, theirs or their competitors', are not a significant datum when trying to understand what happened to Blackberry.

    *(To give some perspective on AAPL's tax bill, it works out almost perfectly to the cost of constructing a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier and its complement of airplanes and helicopters, and arming, fueling, manning, and operating the ship for one year. The ancient Athenians would call this a "trierarchy", the private funding of a national warship. This is apropos of nothing... just a calculation I did for a class on the ancient economy.)

    Rogers turns its back on newest Blackberry smartphone

    The smartphone maker says Rogers Communications has decided not to stock the new BlackBerry Z30, a touch-screen model similar in size to a Samsung Galaxy 4, when its released on Oct. 15 at various Canadian retailers.

    BlackBerry says the Z30 will be stocked by other Canadian carriers like Bell and Telus as well as retailers like Best Buy and Future Shop. Prices will be set by the various retailers.

    The double Irish .... is a tax avoidance strategy by which corporations shift income from a country with a higher tax rate to one with a lower tax rate.

    And its not just the EU that has been scrutinizing the tax affairs of these companies; the U.S. Senate is interested too. Its not hard to see why when you consider that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) avoided paying tax on approximately $44 billion of income thanks to the double Irish.

    OK. Apple paid $14.2 Billion in taxes. However, [QUOTE] Apple set up some Irish subsidiaries a mere four years after it was founded. Foreign sales, which account for 60% of Apple’s profits, are routed through these Irish subsidiaries and taxed nowhere.[ /QUOTE]

    As a result Apple avoided paying another $44 Billion in taxes.

    You really should. The way our society works is that we all contribute what we can (a percentage of our income) to keep the country functioning for all of us. This is a social contract that we have agreed to whether we like it or not. In order for this work fairly, we all need to keep our end of the deal. Now, if someone decides to contribute only 1/4 of what they are supposed to (as Apple alleged to have done, I don't if that's true) then we, you, and everyone in this country got screwed. Through this agreement that we call Taxes, we help to pay for the infrastructure (logistic infrastructures, education systems, etc) that Apple utilizes in order for them to succeed, but they are not keeping their end of the deal. So now tell me, should you complain?

    I heard that Apple in Ireland is practically a shell company used to shelter and move money around. They don't hire a lot of people there. But I don't know about this, just what people been speculating.

    Very true. In a nutshell, APPL would pay taxes as would many other US multi-national companies when they bring the money back to the US (called repatriating). For several years now these companies have tried to negotiate the repatriation of these large amounts of cash/profits at a rate below the high US corporate tax rate of 35%. Heck most lawyers only take 33%. . Until they can negotiate these deals, the money will likely sit oversees as the 35% cost to bring it home to invest is simply too high. I do believe they are allowed to spend the money to buy foreign, say Canadian, assets without the tax bite....... I think this was one of the attractions to MSFT in their Nokia deal.

    I stash a bottle of Crown Royal in my office for occasional visits by colleagues that come to discuss their greatest ideas.
    Maybe it's the alcohol, but they usually walk out without taking their ideas with them.

    nothing is special about.

    It is all because Apple/MSFT had profits at least 5B-10B each quarter in the last several years, Apple sometimes even got like ~14B a quarter.

    No other tech companies are even close to their number, google/IBM/intc and other big names had profit from 1-3B a quarter.

    about 10-15%, make sense.
    Probably some of those supply commitments were executed for production in Q2. So, $307 / $2292 is not accurate without knowing how much of $2292 was execute and how much was canceled.

    Probably they will negotiate a way out with the suppliers. The negotiation would be easier if BlackBerry stays in the hardware business, but if suppliers expect BlackBerry will close the hardware unit, they have no incentives to help BlackBerry to stay in business and will try to get everything they can.
