Wednesday Blockquote Randomosity

Looks to me like the metals bubble may be ending.  Anyway, when I did the AudioBoo on Monday, the reason the market sold off because of European Sovereign Debt worries.  Today’s rally?  Well, from the WSJ:

U.S. stocks erased their losses to finish in positive territory, as investors weighed an improving domestic economy against heightened global concerns.

So there you have it.  Yesterday’s concern is today’s, “Eh.”  I remain 100% invested, but the market does look like it could pull back here.  Black box still on a sell, but now the timing may be right.

iPad’s first real rival?  The Samsung Galaxy Tab.

After seven months of unchallenged prominence, Apple's hot-selling iPad now has its first credible competitor in the nascent market for multitouch consumer tablet computers: the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

The Tab is being introduced over the next week by three major U.S. wireless phone carriers at $400 with a cellular data contract, or at $600 with cellular capability but no contract.


7-inches of screaming fury.  We shall see.  My gut feeling here is that it doesn’t sell as well as the iPad.  Not that I’m an Apple snob, but bigger is better.  Anything smaller than the iPad’s 9.7-inches of screaming fury can be done on a smartphone, er, iPhone.

Okay, I’m a little bit of an Apple snob.

Miami Dolphins bench Chad Henne, go with Chad Pennington.

imageHenne was ``disappointed'' when Sparano delivered the news, which came as a shocking development Wednesday. The coach moved his news conference to earlier in the day to deliver his decision publicly before reporters were scheduled to enter the locker room for access to players.

``After making long evaluation on all details involved, what I've decided to do here, this week, Chad Pennington is going to be the quarterback,'' Sparano said. ``I took a lot of things into consideration. I weight an awful lot of options out.

``This is not an indictment on Chad Henne. This is not an indictment on his future. He has come two-fold from where he was, but at this particular time, it's something I feel like I need to do for our football team.''

Crap. And I have two Chad Henne jerseys (orange and teale)!  Well, I bet the offense improves with the veteran Pennington. Until he gets hurt…

Lou Dobbs to join Fox Business Network.

Former CNN news anchor Lou Dobbs has joined the Fox Business Network and will host and develop a daily television show starting in 2011, Fox said on Wednesday.

Dobbs, 65, also will appear on a variety of other Fox Business Network programs as an analyst and commentator on the financial news of the day.

Which show gets the boot at FBN?
