This obviously comes as a surprise to some people!
This practice is rife with the bigger houses throughout European exchanges. An alternative name for this practice is ‘front running‘
Common sense, regulatory bodies, get your act together.
So here’s the problem, I’m trying to read my calendar on my iPad first generation. Before you all start laughing, in the main I’ve been very pleased with my iPad since day 1.
A few years on, it’s becoming sluggish and crashes on a very regular basis. The latest issue appears to be something to do with daylight saving.
I’m trying to turn to events in March 2013. Every time I try to do this it crashes. I’ve restarted the machine, synched it etc etc. all to no avail.
So I resorted to the web and found this article.
Thanks to Cemo for the solution to my problem.

Apple losing it’s way, it’s not just the mapping app!
I used to love Apple products and still own several of them, iPods, iPads, Mac books, desktops, accessories blah blah blah.
I also own several upgrades to both OS X and iOS, most of which fall well short of the standards that Apple set several years ago.
A victim of their own success? Probably but I’m concerned that Apple is turning into Windows, churning out products which just don’t work anymore.
The final insult, if you want the new Apple tech, iPhone 5 or 5g iPod, then all of the kit you have bought in the past is rendered useless in one fell swoop without, wait for it, yet another accessory.

I wonder if anyone at Apple has a solution for this? Looking at the blogs etc etc it doesn’t seem so.
Common sense, look after your customers or eventually they won’t buy your products #apple
Here we go again, another new Apple product following hot on the heels of the successful ‘new’ iPad.
Shame that Apple have changed the connector from the old 30 pin connector to a new ‘lightening’ connector.
But wait, the thoughtful folk at Apple have come up with a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter which will set you back a modest £25.00
Also new at the Apple website is iOS6 with over 200 new features. Unfortunately as rumour has it, one of those isn’t being able to draw an accurate map with the Apple mapping software. The Google mapping app has been dispensed with presumably because Apple and Google can’t work together to make the world a better place?
So is it right to short Apple stock yet? With a market cap of over US$650 bn and sales topping 5 million iPhone 5′s on the first weekend, probably not.

In an unprecedented act of common sense, Nowotny calls for a ban on HFT. It’s just a shame that he doesn’t have any power to implement the ban.
However, hopefully if the ban is put in place, it will end years of unregulated front running and cheating by investment banks and the now extinct Prop books.

I have an Android phone and an iPod Touch device. On my Android the application called “Google Play Store” takes up some 9.2Mb of space on my phone. The “old” Market application takes up less than 1Mb.
The problem is that if I want to download an app onto my Android, I have to now use the new Google Play and my phone just doesn’t have enough space for another 9Mb app. So I have to uninstall the new version which then reverts to the smaller “Market” app.
But when I try to load another app, Market is automatically replaced with Google Play again!!!
This is extremely frustrating and I just don’t want a 9Mb app on my phone just to download apps. Going forward, if I can’t use my Android phone because of this issue, I’ll probably just buy an iPhone and bye bye Google market.
Please Google, can we have a lite Google play app.
Common sense, don’t make apps so big that you can’t use your mobile device anymore!
