Legal Some people (you know who) predicted the Oracle-Google lawsuit would spell doom for Google and Android. Well, turns out this was all a huge fuss over nothing. Oracle's damages claim started at an idiotic $6 billion - but the final claim is less than $100 million. Oracle's patent trolling is turning into a huge failure of epic proportions.

May I suggest you go work on Wall Street? Because with so few information about things you are pretty good on generating "well thought" conclusions. And you are pretty much certain about what is good and what is not, like the top heads from WS. I am sure you have a brilliant future working there.

Well, I made over 2 million on the stock market, too bad it's only a simulation game. But I don't care much for making money.

It's not that difficult to reach probable conclusions.

You can do it too: guess which company's stock I used to reach my profit level in the stock trading simulation game.

See, not that difficult.

You can even make good guesses on what device I played this game. With this information you can even make more good guesses.

Guessing what the stock market is going to do is much more difficult, because it doesn't always, well often even, follow logic.

If company A is the leader in a certain field and posts a loss, a loss created by factors not related to the business itself, stocks of other companies in the same field can go down even though they are doing very well. This makes it hard to predict what will happen, because you can't judge it just by looking at the market numbers, which in this case would be great.
