    In search of yield... No securitizable revenue stream left behind. I'd also add "Depreciation" to TechGromit's list. As a business, SolarCity can depreciate the panels, which an individual can't do.

    Strategist says: Think about Marcus and other pensioners who deserve retiring at age 55.
    Marcus is probably part of the CalSTRS 2% at 60 program. Assuming 30 years of service at 55 (which is probably not the case, but possible), he would get (1.4%x30) 42% of his salary. Post reform teachers (2% at 62) would get (1.16% x 30 years) 34.8% of salary as pension if they retired at 55. See this table.
    I think you're confusing Marcus with a public safety officer (3% at 50, before reforms and 3% at 55, post CalPERS reforms).

    I think they just made a movie about that: In what sounds like a parody, maybe intentional, of the way every intrusive, privacy-annihilating technology is heralded as a convenience, the movie has several people gushing about how, with Genisys, all their devices can be linked!

    My wife and I have our email with different entities in an attempt at information silo diversification... probably just spittin' in the wind, though.

    And about a two weeks ago, I think Google broke the internet (this may have been part of their "mobile ready" websites initiative). I run NoScript (edit: Firefox addon) and couldn't get "normal" functionality" out of several websites. Sigh.... most are back up now (I think some of them dropped scripting from googleappservices.com or something like that) .
