Money Talking: Has the Fed Run out of Tools?

Does the Fed have any weapons still left in it’s arsenal to help the economy? How much will the drought drive up food prices this year? For thoughts on this, as well as how much steam the U.S. Manufacturing boom still has left, check out WNYC’s Money Talking with myself and Joe Nocera.

That is quite expensive. I'm proud to say that I have yet to need any sort of iphone repair. Mainly because I don't actually have an iphone, but thats just a minor detail.

I'm not sure how to take this. On one hand I'm betting it is over blown hugely! On the other hand, this would mean on average $20-25 was spent per phone for repair? That doesn't sound like that much for a $600-$800 phone.

But maybe my math is wrong.

Seems a little misleading.  If you dunk any phone in water is not good for it.  And Palm Treos routinely broke antennas, battery doors, cases etc.. And under heavy use would last about 6 months.  As for your phone not being fixed in recovery mode, there are numerous websites and instructions all over of how to plug your phone into a computer with iTunes and get it out of recovery mode.  As for a more durable phone do you think there is one at the same size and weight?  The materials the iPhone is built out of are better than other manufactures.

In comparing watches for instances you'd look at similar price and construction an size.  Since many people use their phone instead of a watch id say its a fare analogy.

Instead of complaining why wouldn't you buy a silicone or rubber case and put the phone in it?

 Better yet, have the phone installed in one of those old rotary phones with a wire.

The rotary handset could be blue toothed to the iphone.

The screen could go where the dial is.

The wire could become a safety chain.

The phone would never go anywhere, but never break either.

The Geniuses at the Apple store didnt ever offer to fix either of my 3GS and iPhone 4 that are both stuck in recovery mode.  I love my new GAlaxy S3, but I do miss the iPhones.

Look at the body language of the Fed Chairman and Treasury Secretary when they speak. It betrays the state-of-the-affair of nation's lethargic economy. These powerful people are in-the-know.  

Do not put too much trust in experts who insist on recovery, they may have a hidden agenda, especially when the November election is getting nearer.  (btt1943, mtd1943)
