A.M. thoughts

Russian markets go up 1-2% after the new US "sanctions" aren't as bad as feared.  The headlines read today that a mayor of a Ukrainian city was shot in an apparent assassination attempt.  Without context it would make one think that this is some sort of Russian provocation, but it sounds like this mayor was pro-Russian, so perhaps Ukrainian forces may have been trying to instigate again?

The best line of the day so far via @dougkass "We have too few Apples and too many Amazons".  That perfectly sums up my view of the current tech mania.  Everything is consumer/consumption focused and very, very few businesses are focusing on the solving problems for people and corporations.

Fact of the day: 75% of iTunes app revenue is derived from video games.

Cheers!
