Re: not happening

Still have a laptop with Windows 7 :) ... Windows keeps nagging but I don't care

The thumb rule is "Every alternate version of Windows does well"

Silicon Valley Bank seized by officials after imploding: How this happened and why

Re: Federal Spending > Inflation > Rising Interest Rates

Agree with you mostly. except that most debt is USD denominated. All US needs to do to pay its debts is print more USD. This is the trick which Unca Sam pulled, making everything USD denominated.

Infosys quits Russia, ending UK political and tax scandal … maybe

Sigmund Fraud


With Infosys themselves, I think any decent enough company (well, any company with a decent PR guy) pulled out of Russia the moment the tanks rolled in to Ukraine. Even if it weren't an immediate action, they at least set out a framework to detail how and when they would leave. Infosys have only now decided Russia is bad and should leave? Bullshit.

Infosys is an Indian company. Heck they should'nt have pulled out even now. The only reason they pulled out was coz it was creating a political stink in relation to the founder's daughter.

Sigmund Fraud

Re: How much are Bollywood movies successful outside India?

It will be lucrative even if it is only a local production. It is a huge market. Also i dont understand this. If other religions follow islam first politics, What is the problem in doing Hindu first politics?

A hindu nation is always better than an islamic nation, since in an islamic nation no one else can survive.

How one bad algorithm cost traders $440m

Sigmund Fraud

The "bid" price is what you’d pay the holder of the stock if you want to buy their shares. The "ask" price is what they’ll pay to buy those same shares from you.

Isn't the "ask" price the price which they are asking for the shares?
