^ i'm going to have to update it lol
^ with raspberry pi floating around (an other boards like it) its bound to happen.
Sounds reasonable... ie. Not far fetched. Although I would amend 6 to be a war not specifically tied to the Middle East. The US is trying to stir up trouble in Asia so that is a possibility.
Is it sad im more interested in #7 than anything else :(
Only because it means microsoft will respond with the 720
I did. I had 39 shares of Google at 850 a piece. I sold them though around the 875 mark to diversify my portfolio. That would have been an 20% increase. That would have been 20% over a 2 year period. So 10% a year. My current portfolio has made about 10% this year diversified. Maybe I should have still kept it. 10% on those and 10% on these. Oh well
Diversify is always a must and you saw a gain on your trade so no you didn't goof. You also still have shares you can sell now to see more gains. You good.

Where I think you didn't focus more on was that you did not chart google (correct me if i am wrong). If you did you would see why predictions # 5 was likely. (I posted a Google chart I did a few months ago when Google came close to breaking the $1,000 mark). +Walter Hardeman
