  1. You raise a good point. IIRC because I cant find anything online to back up what I'm going to say next, during the height (or bottom of ) the 1990's recession, the word "recession" was used around 12-14 times per days in the Daily Mail, a separate university study showed, those companies that continued their advertising & marketing like activities or increased it survived the recession in the main. Those that reduced their advertising and marketing activities were less likely to survive. Its common sense yet bosses dont do the common sense thing in some instances and do things like sack
  2. If they work. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/ufo/8026971/Aliens-have-deactivated-British-and-US-nuclear-missiles-say-US-military-pilots.html
  3. Interesting reads. http://nottspolitics.org/2011/06/16/the-life-and-death-of-the-property-owning-democracy/ http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/feb/28/economics-conservatives-legacy-housing-election http://www.dur.ac.uk/n.d.lee/ma.pdf <-- Some history of the property owning democracy mindset. http://markwadsworth.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/property-owning-democracy-is-great-but.html
  4. Facebook has said that 8.7% of its 955m global users are duplicate accounts, pages for pets and those designed for spam. http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2012/aug/02/facebook-83m-profiles-bogus-fake
  5. Have you tried copying an AI (which will ultimately control the physical robot) and put it into another computer? If its any good ie complex, its like human cloning, the DNA are the same but the personality will be different and you get different results. Its where Chaos Theory comes into it play. When people discuss robots, they should really consider the AI software is the most valuable part of the robot, machines are useless without the software to drive them.
  6. Totally agree, by toning it down a bit and being less animated he could grow on other more mainstream potential viewers.
  7. You dont know if I know it already though and like all markets, there needs to be a buyer and seller who can agree a price. So to help establish a price point, tell me why I need this intelligence advice? Sell it to me and I'll decide if I need it or not.
  8. Yes and no, it depends on the other parties starting position, ie they might have obtained the stock at a previous high price before seeing it decline over a timescale, so they then decide to sit and wait for an [unknown] period of time for the price to rise, which the other morning could have been the opportunity they were waiting for.
  9. And the Govt wants to buy up the remaining stock to renationalise it which would give Santander who I believe are the other main shareholder a nice little windfall just when they need a bailout by the back door!
  10. Audio from a trader during the May 2010 Flash Crash. Its funny!
  11. Made it into the Daily Mail as well now. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2182817/Stock-exchange-glitch-cost-U-S-trading-firm-440m-just-minutes-lead-bankruptcy.html
  12. Chat bots getting into an argument. Just change the interface so it outputs the words via a browser or tcpip interface instead of speech engine. Simples. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14843549
  13. It just keeps getting funnier. Masters of the Universe, my backside! http://www.zerohedge.com/news/knight-ceo-comments-algo-failure-which-has-cost-him-70-his-market-hap-one-day
  14. Money is irrelevant in the long term scheme of things, intelligence is everything.
