Groupon also taking it in the shorts: http://www.businessinsider.com/groupon-c...

Say, where is our little buddy, anyway? He's been remarkably quiet after his "You're all morons if you're over 35" diatribe. Since I'm over 35, I wanted to see what other tech sector investing advice he had. You know, since he did so well with FB, Zynga and Groupon and all.

Maybe he's been busy counting his money...

They can write apps and provide mobile stuff just fine. They just have no clue how to monetize mobile. The standard ad model doesn't work on mobile and it never will.

Not really, but I do get a chuckle when I get the latest on wall street earnings, and this one takes the cake.

$180MM for a company with one popular title and 2 weeks away from bankruptcy might be a bit too much after all?

ZNGA has more shoes to drop than HPQ (which itself has more shoes than Imelda Marcos)

NEW YORK (AP) -- Zynga shares tumbled nearly 12 percent in after-hours trading Thursday after the online game company and Facebook disclosed that they changed their relationship status to become less attached to each other.

Couldn't resist updating this thread with this link.

Zynga said it will cut about 520 jobs, or roughly one-fifth of its work force, and close some offices in the United States.
Analysts said the latest warning on quarterly bookings, a measure of sales, boded poorly for the "FarmVille" developer, which began trimming staff late last year.
Zynga's shares slid as much as 15 percent in frantic trade before closing down 12 percent at $2.99, near its four-month low.

Wonder if MM is still a fan?

Their CEO is a bit unscrupulous (to say the least), and most of their market share has come from acquisitions rather than original development. Their current condition is, therefore, not much of a surprise.
