TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan’s Sharp Corp (6753.T) said it will buy Toshiba Corp’s (6502.T) personal computer business and issue $1.8 billion in new shares to buy back preferred stock from banks, highlighting a swift recovery under the control of Foxconn. FILE PHOTO: A logo of Sharp Corp is pictured at the CEATEC JAPAN 2017 (Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies) at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan, October 2, 2017. REUTERS/Toru Hanai The acquisition of the PC business for $36 million marks a return by Sharp to a market it quit eight years ago, even if its comparatively low cost underscores dwindling demand in a world where many consumers spend more money on their smartphones. The Osaka-based electronics maker will be able to use the scale of parent Foxconn, the world’s biggest contract manufacturer, to produce PCs more cheaply - just as it has done with TVs. “Foxconn is a PC contract manufacturer and has a great deal of expertise and … [Read more...] about Sharp to buy Toshiba PC business, issue $1.8 billion in new shares
Stocks under 10 dollars to buy
Etan Patz walked out of his New York City home headed for a school bus stop just two blocks away. The 6-year-old never made it to school that day in 1979 – and he's never been found. His disappearance is a story that shocked New York City and to this day haunts law enforcement investigators who have spent decades trying to find him. The disappearance of the young boy is more than a missing person's case. Indeed, it changed the way parents watched over their kids. "I think this was one of the most significant unsolved cases in the history of New York City," Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. tell "48 Hours" correspondent Richard Schlesinger. "Every missing child case is very important, but this was one of the oldest ones we had," says NYPD Lieutenant Chris Zimmerman. Etan Patz disappeared at a time long before social media and every storefront had a video camera. He had asked his parents to let him do the short walk to the bus stop alone for the first time. He had a … [Read more...] about Etan Patz case: 1979 disappearance of NYC boy continues to haunt investigators

I'm looking to get something like a OnePlus 5 or Mate 9 for about half that price. I just can't believe that any device will literally be twice as good. posted on 11 Sep 2017, 15:27 4 5. Plasticsh1t (Posts: 2618; Member since: 01 Sep 2014) The Oneplus 5 performs way better than any flagship phone available and the multitasking is great if you get the 8 gb version. On my own usage I get extremely great battery life on an average of 7:30 - 8:00 screen on time and the finger print scanner is extremely fast. You have to bare in mind it is semi stock android and doesn't have all the bells and whistles like other Android phones (wireless charging - water proof, etc.) but all in all great phone. posted on 11 Sep 2017, 18:15 0 45. medtxa (Posts: 1524; Member since: 02 Jun 2014) … [Read more...] about Comments for : It’s nuts to buy phones around the $1,000 range, right?

Given what they did to Clearwire ( removed unlimited caps and raised prices ), i don't see them doing anything in the customers interests with T mobile.
