Formatting Stock Data from Yahoo Finance

Thursday, January 28th, 2010 | Business | 33 Comments

Yesterday I was playing with manipulating information pulled from stocks.  I ended up pulling data from Yahoo Finance, because it is just so easy to do in PHP.  I ran into a problem, how would I pull all the data I needed?

Google Nexus One: New video, and ramblings

Monday, December 28th, 2009 | Business | 1 Comment

Right up front, I’m getting one.  Rumors say that it will be $99 for current “Google” users.  I’m hoping that means at least one of the dozens of Google services that I’m currently signed up for.  While I am getting one, I won’t be replacing my current iPhone 3GS with it, just testing it out.  Only if I really love it will I consider leaving AT&T and my beloved iPhone. › Continue reading

iPhone and AT&T: Dropped Calls, a Fix?

Friday, December 4th, 2009 | Business | 5 Comments

Every day I’m on at least 20 calls, and I would have to estimate that recently it seems I am dropping 50% of those calls.  Good old AT&T right?

Being the normal annoyed user, I blamed AT&T and decided they couldn’t help me out.  I just kept dreaming of an iPhone on Verizon (I still do). › Continue reading

Speed Up Google Analytics: Use Async

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009 | Business | No Comments

Saw a great post at High Performance Web Sites blog, Google Analytics goes async.  The author is Steve Souders, who works at Google on web performance.  So this is from the horses mouth.

Think about it, why would you care when the Google Analytics code is loaded?  All it does is capture data, as long as Google gets it — it may as well go out at midnight.  The new code enables an “async” request in HTML5. › Continue reading
