Buy...I mean Sell!

I got out of JDS Uniphase today (JDSU) because the stock is just sort of stagnating. All in all I didn't do too bad. Keep in mind I'm playing with small numbers here

Bought 310 shares @ $1.56 ($483.60)
Sold shares for total of $642.58
Difference of $158.98 (+%32.87)
Minus total fees of $14 (+%29.98)

Not too bad at all, at least it's a lot better than my 401K. Now the question is what to invest in next...

Dublin or Bust!

I just bought my tickets yesterday for Dublin. Why you (so cleverly) ask? Why not, it will be St. Patrick's Day and what better way to celebrate than to be at the Emerald Isle with pint(s) in hand?

However, I don't think my phone [verizonwireless.com] will work out there, which sucks! To aid that situation I've been looking for portable hard-soft phones that I could use Skype over. Hello Mylo [sony.com]. This thing looks pimped out! Wi-fi, music, movies, Skype, Opera browser! It looks like it has everything except AIM (my favored IM) and NetStumbler/AirSnort. The latter being a great combo for any portable Wi-fi device.

I'm currently looking into purchasing one via eBay and will (hopefully) post my joys of the device.
