T-Mobile Needs China, Not The iPhone

Is T-Mobile finally a real threat to AT&T and Verizon?

So if the iPhone isn’t going to bring subscribers to T-Mobile in droves, what will?

Not $500 Galaxys and iPhones and Nexuses.

T-Mobile needs to look to China. Every day there are new quad-core HD phones being released at below US$200 price points. And these phones are all superior to the current crop of last-generation crap offered by MetroPCS and their ilk.

T-Mobile needs to sucker-punch the hardware vendors, not AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint.

People would flock to quad-core HD Android phones priced at $199.

The iPad cut the price of having a computer (don’t argue with me, it is a computer to the general public). T-Mobile needs to cut the price of really good phones.

Cyprus: The Machine Begins To Consume Itself


Here We Go Again: EU Lawmaker To Push For Bail-In Resolution Law For Deposits Over €100K

Cyprus is no “one-time thing.” It’s their template for the future.

Imagine saving all your life and having 110,000 Euros in a Cyprus bank. Up to forty percent (if not more) of that is going to be wiped out. Stolen!

They can spin this as “dirty Russian Oligarch money” all they like. All that does is disguise the truth of everyday people who will suffer.

Having never let the crooked banks collapse back in 2008, they’re now going to come for everyone’s money.
