A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

Android, part 2

This article, Google and Cellphones: Let Freedom Ring, by Rob Pegoraro, begins well, but finally fizzles.

"Google might save the cellphone from its miserable self. In a year. If wireless carriers stop acting like, well, wireless carriers."
Unlike salespeople everywhere, the writer forgets the distinction between features and benefits; or, perhaps, he confuses the difference between the middleware programmers and the purchasers/users of cellphones, us.

No matter, as the article still offers several interesting points. Worth your time, if interested in the topic.

Full Disclosure: Long the shares of Google/GOOG
