Re: Need Smartphone Recommendation
The only serious competitors in this market are Apple and Samsung, if you ask me. I pretty much use Mac for everything, so I've integrated a laptop, iWatch, and iPhone into everything. Their quality is outstanding, even though Samsung has dipped into their sales a lot of the course of about 5 years. I think if you go with iPhone you won't disappointed.

Samsung offers a good line but I've heard they've had a lot of hiccups... and at this point I'm pretty pissed with the company because I purchased a 3K refrigerator which is great, except the fact that the ice makers are apparently faulty due to an engineering mistake that they refuse to correct... because its deficient in basically all of them and the payout would be enormous. There's a class action lawsuit going on currently.

The point is, its that lack of integrity and a sense of cutting corners that rubs me the wrong way... Never had that with a single Apple product. Reliable, every time, and there is a meticulous nature about the company that I find attractive.

Re: Stock market falls and the selling off of stock
I often hear the connection between falling stock market indexes and the stockholders selling off stock.
My question is, if there is a mass selling off of stock, who is doing the buying? I presume other stockholders.

I recently sold stock because I'm purchasing a new house and needed a little more liquid assets to cover closing costs. Of course, I could have waited a little longer. But given that stock is in decline, I figured I'd hedge my bets and pull it out now before it devalues any further.

Ordinarily I would advise that its almost always better to hold, even during a recession. A lot of people view down markets as a good thing, since they can buy shares at a discounted rate. For every person that is selling shares, someone else is buying them. For some people, maybe they couldn't afford even a single share of Amazon because the price was like $1,200! I don't know what Amazon's share price is at now, but maybe its now $800 per unit. The point is, some people like it, especially if they're still getting a dividend on those shares.

Unless you have a true recession, like the Great Depression, it shouldn't crash the market. There are generally still enough people buying stock.

Re: Stock market falls and the selling off of stock
Amazon was $1792.57 at the close today.

Jesus

I guess that's not all the surprising given their strength, even if the rest of the S&P 500 were down, their stock would still be a high commodity.
