So NBIX traded above $4 for a while yesterday but closed at $3.40, up just 67 cents from the prior day’s close. I bought more. If guru is right, this could be a very nice holding.

Holy cow. Point your phone . . . click . . . and Google will tell you everything about what you’re looking at. Or – with facial recognition, potentially – whom you’re looking at. See the demo here. At first I thought it was a spoof, but apparently it’s not.

DIGITIZE YOUR LIFE

Got decaying home videos? Old photo albums? Color slides? There are lots of services that will put them all onto a flash drive for you. This one services the greater New York area.
