That doesn't bode well for Research In Motion (RIMM) , the company that makes the BlackBerry line of phones. Compare that to the loyalty among the iPhone crowd, of which 89% say they want another iPhone next. Only 2% of iPhoners want a BlackBerry next, and 6% want an Android phone. The rest want something in the "other" category. Users of the Android platform, which is made by Google (GOOG), aren't as fanatical as ...

From mobile to music, “focus on fan relationships”
Motorola created a hit with the RAZR in 2003, but neglected to keep up with technology trends as users began to demand more than just good looks from their mobile devices.  Motorola now has a small market share and is in absolute turmoil. Jump to media (back in 1949) and the beginning of widespread TV. NBC invested, and lost, money hand over fist in the new medium, gambling that it would pay off in the future. It did. Music experienced a similar crisis beginning in the 1990′s when music began moving from CD’s to MP3′s and a service you may have heard of called Napster came out.

Budgeting Risk along the Active Risk Spectrum 199 In summary, the ...
reflects two methodological advantages: (1) their relative freedom from the no-short constraint (due to smaller intended active deviations) and (2) their greater focus on risk management (and the related reduction in noise in the information ratio's denominator). If these conventions persist in the future, then we would expect the information ratio advantage to persist as well. Given the historical information ratio advantage of structured managers, investors might conclude from our discussion that they should allocate little, if any, of their active risk budgets to traditional active strategies. This is not necessarily the ... market research, surveys and trends

Karen Heller: Camden should find funds for libraries before prisons
Pedro Munoz, 17, and Yani Munoz, 15, search the stacks for summer reading assignments in the Camden Free Public Library. The branch is in danger of closing after budget cuts. Posted on Sun, Aug. 15, 2010 By Karen Heller Inquirer Columnist The central branch of the Camden Free Public Library has a broken bathroom and water fountain.

Deflation is the worry; inflation looms, too
Only a fleeting fear six years ago, worry of an economy-wide slide in prices has returned, slipping into economists’ discussions and shading investment decisions. There is no consensus — just pressure to make the right call at a time when the stakes are high and the rules have changed. “Our clients are rich, and they want to stay rich,” said Adrian Cronje, chief investment officer and partner at Balentine, an Atlanta-based wealth management firm. “We tell clients that simply buying and holding stocks and bonds isn’t going to be good enough.” Most financial advisers still think the odds ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Currency risk results from fluctuating worldwide exchange rates. If you invest in foreign stocks, or in a U.S.-based mutual fund company that invests in overseas companies, you face a certain level of currency risk. There are two types of currencies: Pegged currency values move in tandem with the U.S. dollar and therefore protect you from currency risk. Free-floating currencies, on the other hand, pose a currency risk because their value fluctuates independently of the ...
