The Market Crashes!

The Nasdaq has suffered it's biggest drop since April 2000, declining by 9.1%. Getting crushed in this decline was Apple who suffered a massive 17.92% drop in share price today. This is caused by a mixture of a market losing confidence in Apple themselves and a total loss of confidence in tech stocks. In fact today has been a disaster for a number of tech stock with Yahoo dropping to $16.88 per share. When you compare this to the $33+ per share they wanted from Microsoft a few months ago you can see just how far things have dropped. Microsoft themselves have taken a 8% hit today.

This has been a disasterous day for the markets and the Nasdaq has been showing the markets the way down. I can't see this improving anytime soon. Tomorrow is going to be important. The markets cannot be allowed to collapse for a second day or the crash by the end of the week will be felt for months to come.

While the UK Government recognises and highlights the role this gas plays in causing lung cancer the EPA in the U.S. goes further adding numbers and additional facts such as : 1. 21,000 deaths a year are linked to Radon gas in the U.S.  2. It's the second biggest cause of lung cancer after smoking 3. Radon can enter the home through the water supply as well as the soil 4. There is a risk of stomach cancer from ingesting water containing Radon and lung cancer from inhaling the gas carried in the water.
To help protect and educate the population it's time the c…

XBox Live Dashboard Update Tomorrow!

I just logged into XBox Live for the first time in a while today and I've mail informing me that XBox live is going to be offline tomorrow for about 24 hours. This must be the big update that was announced at E3. The blades will soon be gone and we'll have the more modern interface. I liked the blades but I'm very excited about new interface. I'll post about the new look once i get a look at it hopefully on Tuesday.
