    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

Wall Street Silver Gold Theft and World Economic Collapse


This is what the Complete and Total Economic Collapse of the United States and the World looks like on film.
As seen in the movie Rollover 1981.
The Federal Reserve and Alan Greenspan engineered the greatest financial catastrophe in history of the planet. The Federal Reserve must be audited and abolished! Audit the US gold in Fort Knox. Prosecute the Wall Street criminals. Reinstate Glass-Steagall. Enforcement of regulations is key.

Egypt Boiling Over-Day 3 videos. It appears the government has lost control of the city of Suez which is the gateway to the Suez canal. I wonder if this will move commodity futures...

They'll go to ANY lengths to keep this market up.

The one in the same, US government/FED/Wall Street, is the most corrupt institution in history. The world will be brought down by the corrupt actions of a few.

I thought that it was the error line in the code where they phish and raid all of your sensitive files for your personal information and then re-post it on-line if you haven't purchased the opt-out package.

Last week my boss wanted me to look into equipping our sales force with Ipads to replace their laptops. Which they use for SAP, CRM, BW... you know the basics which he thought would be so easely installed on a Ipad.


First I laughed for 5 minutes and I didn't take him serious.

Then he gave me the look "YOU ARE A EMPLOYEE, I AM THE BOSS" + the lazy eye.

Now I officially am looking into it. I already did a test with 5 reps. to test that crap and well... surprise surprise, it's useless for that kind of work and forget about the tools.

I told him we couldn't install any soft. on it => response:  Cancel their software. Let them do it all by web apps.

I proposed the Dell Tablet that looks really classy and works just great and has a 4 inches bigger screen => to big for the nut.

Now I'm looking into cloud applications to run on that crap (which is really to small to work with, let allone show a demo on) and well... if he wants it, it'll cost him about a million in software modifications without any advantages.

Ever tried to run apps on the safari app on a Ipad?!

So why do you think your boss is getting the tech erection this time?  Is your competition feigning wild increases in sales because they have all of their new toys?

I had a similar experience - run client server stuff on an iPad.  Have several VMware servers and we fired up Server 2008 Remote Desktop Services and it works - use WYSE Pocket Cloud as the app to interact with RDS.


Plan to move to VMware View when we have time to figure that out.


However, iPads work OK with a virtual desktop.  Only have 50 iPad users though and I have no idea if this approach scales up.  But at least I don't need to replace our enterprise software.


Like not fighting the FED, I have given up fighting people who want to use Apple products.

They're pretty good running remote desktop software. I use my iPad to trade and also do very processor intensive Adobe design work via log me in and it works great.

Running apps like that locally will give you and the iPads an apoplexy.
