6/3     My SLV has been doing much better than GLD. Is it now time to sell?
        \_ In general, you should hold on to winners, in my experience. There
           is nothing wrong with taking a little profit, or diversifying, but
           the most bone headed trades for me ever have been selling stocks
           that have gone up 100%, just to watch them go up another 200%.
        \_ The dollar is tanking.  Hold on to both.
           \_ I don't have a lot of SLV, is it time to buy? I'm itching to
              buy right now but not sure if it's the right time.

6/3     Any phone geeks on here?  I want to get a new smartphone, preferably
        with wifi, touchscreen, and 3.5mm headphone jack.  I don't plan to pay
        the monthly $$ for a data plan though, since wifi is good enough for
        me.  That rules out the iPhone due to AT&T's policies.
        Maybe I should get some sort of Nokia N-series.
        \_ Wait one week and get a pre?
           \_ 2 days. but it will have a data plan as well.
        \_ I'm happy with a Blackberry 8320 (with WiFi) from T-Mobile, but in
           order to get everything working via WiFi (e.g. Google Maps, Google
           Mobile, Yahoo! Messenger etc) you need to sign up with their Black
           Berry plan (just for a month), get the service book pushed to your
           phone, then you can cancel it. Then your phone works OK in your WiFi.
           Of course if you just want Safari browser, you can do it right out
           of the box.
