    I like Defiance also, it reminds me of Firefly, with the lead actor as a Han Solo/Mal Reynolds type, and as a Dexter fan, I am happy to see Julie Benz and Jaime Murray reunited.

    The “death” of Microsoft is of course ridiculous. When you are Microsoft/Apple/Google/whatever, “death” means sliding into profitable irrelevance like IBM.

    As to Netflix, the thing I am most looking forward to is new episodes of Arrested Development.

    I am by no means a financial expert, but I would be buying Apple. To me their trump card is that their success has been largely US only, and I see a LOT of growth in international markets. Also, they have started paying dividends, so there is something of a hedge against the stock price remaining flat.
