StapleRemover @StapleRemover 15m @nowtherearetwo #BEchat it’s all on paper anyways. Night folks. in reply to @nowtherearetwo

chad @olybuzz 15m @BizExam yeah, I’m out {re: Gservices terms, integration} Moving to domain-related services in 2012 #BEchat in reply to @BizExam

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 15m @TacomaLynette According to my friends, they weren’t even presented the hoops. Can’t hop through if they aren’t there! #BEchat in reply to @TacomaLynette

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 16m @StapleRemover It’s not like they won’t get more money on the lower amount, beats trying to sell a vacant/forclosed house for less. #BEchat

StapleRemover @StapleRemover 16m #BEchat I have to run. Have a good night all. Drive careful the roads are covered in water.

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 17m @StapleRemover yes! Calculate the payments that have been made for 5 years… bank has enough to cover most of the principal…. #BEchat in reply to @StapleRemover

StapleRemover @StapleRemover 18m #BEchat any lowered adjustments by banks on mortgages to homeowners could be given back by write-offs by the Feds.

Lynette Patterson @TacomaLynette 19m @MichaelGruener Because almost no one is approved, too many hoops #bechat in reply to @MichaelGruener

Lynette Patterson @TacomaLynette 20m @nowtherearetwo Or a menu button w/ in an app! #bechat in reply to @nowtherearetwo

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 20m #BEchat I have several friends who have had to walk away from their mortgages. This even after the “programs” were announced.

StapleRemover @StapleRemover 20m #BEchat I think banks should adjust the mortgages that are underwater to reflect the new home values.

Lynette Patterson @TacomaLynette 21m @StapleRemover #bechat those programs are abysmal only work 1% of time…wait a min #heardthatbefore in reply to @StapleRemover

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 21m @TacomaLynette Totally! I always feel like I get stuck in my itouch, I hate that there isn’t always a back button. #BEchat in reply to @TacomaLynette

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 22m #BEchat I remember hearing that the White House had said programs, but I’ve yet to hear anything else. Is it a lack of spreading the word?

StapleRemover @StapleRemover 23m #BEchat It seems most programs for homeowners that are underwater have not worked very well so far. Retweeted by @nowtherearetwo

StapleRemover @StapleRemover 26m #BEchat It seems most programs for homeowners that are underwater have not worked very well so far.

chad @olybuzz 26m #BEchat Happy New Year Everyone!

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 27m @StapleRemover I’m looking forward to hearing the message. Maybe he will tell us where the change went? #BEchat in reply to @StapleRemover

StapleRemover @StapleRemover 28m #BEchat, the SOTU tonight should be interesting. I wonder if we will here about a new bailout for home owwers that are underwater?

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 29m Isn’t that the truth!! “@einmaleins: @J_Rounce @nowtherearetwo Every now and then you gotta check in on your elders πŸ˜‰ #BEchat”

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 29m @J_Rounce lol! I didn’t say that. Just interested in the lastest news. But I would cry if they were torn apart. #antitrust? #BEchat in reply to @J_Rounce

StapleRemover @StapleRemover 32m #BEchat Android phones are not supported by Sprint yet. And, hello!

Mathias Eichler @einmaleins 32m @J_Rounce @nowtherearetwo Every now and then you gotta check in on your elders πŸ˜‰ #BEchat in reply to @J_Rounce

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 35m @TacomaLynette lol. totally! Somehow I’m not concerned about privacy. I probably should be. #BEchat in reply to @TacomaLynette

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 36m Thanks for the link! “@einmaleins: @BizExam Yes, Google is in trouble. pandodaily.com/2012/01/23/goo… #BEchat”

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 37m @TacomaLynette I rooted my android, and broke the screen. so, I’ve been using my itouch a lot more. I am convinced I want android. #BEchat in reply to @TacomaLynette

Lynette Patterson @TacomaLynette 38m @BizExam #BEChat Not that I thought I had any privacy left, but still…leave me the illusion in reply to @BizExam

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 40m @BizExam I thought that was already happening? Oh wait… That’s Facebook. #BEchat in reply to @BizExam

Mathias Eichler @einmaleins 40m @BizExam Yes, Google is in trouble. pandodaily.com/2012/01/23/goo… #BEchat in reply to @BizExam

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 40m @einmaleins You’re absolutely right. #BEchat in reply to @einmaleins

Business Examiner @BizExam 41m … will integrate user data across 60 Google products: Gmail, YouTube, search, etc Users will not be able to opt-out. {Thoughts?} #BEchat

Mathias Eichler @einmaleins 42m @MichaelGruener #BEchat but don’t just reduce it down to marketing. The product actually works. It enriches people’s lives. It’s not hollow in reply to @MichaelGruener

Business Examiner @BizExam 42m Speaking of @google.. They announced Tuesday, will require all users agree to new privacy policy… #BEchat.

Lynette Patterson @TacomaLynette 43m @MichaelGruener #BEChat…hahaha late night infomercials – marketing methods must speak 2 the customer…not buying my next 1st gen from QVC in reply to @MichaelGruener

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 44m “People don’t know what they want until you show it to them.” – Jobs – I think Apple’s innovation < Apple's marketing #BEchat

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 44m @TacomaLynette In terms of smart phones, I think Android is better πŸ™‚ but, #ilovegoogle! #BEchat in reply to @TacomaLynette

Lynette Patterson @TacomaLynette 45m #BEChat Quality and Tech are gr8 together. But price must be consideration too..must balance the quality to the price point for max exposure

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 46m #BEchat Apple is by far the innovation king, I agree. The Club steering wheel lock wasn’t the first, nor the best, they won in marketing.

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 48m #BEchat @einmaleins Agree completely. There are positives to both the small selection/detail oriented AND the big box selection

Mathias Eichler @einmaleins 48m Considering that Apple creates a great product & that producing great products can be successful, I believe that is a good thing #BEchat

Lynette Patterson @TacomaLynette 48m @MichaelGruener #BEChat, They credit the iPhone as the 1st real ‘Smart’ phone because of the ability to run concurrent apps…#innovation? in reply to @MichaelGruener

Mathias Eichler @einmaleins 49m #BEchat I’m not saying Capitalism will fundamentally change, but that there is a new role model business lots of people will model after.

Mathias Eichler @einmaleins 50m #BEchat I am still thinking on that. But “quality can win”. Small selection, passionate focus on details. Not giving in to demands…

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 52m #BEchat I don’t see how the biz models are different. Buy cheap parts and labor and sell for more than you paid.

Lynette Patterson @TacomaLynette 52m @einmaleins #BEChat, Is that model innovation, first to market, what is your take away? in reply to @einmaleins

Mathias Eichler @einmaleins 53m #BEchat now we are being presented with a different model that can succeed, not just in a niche anymore, but as a market leader.

Emily Cook @EmilyILCook 54m @stephschramm #bechat isn’t that the truth! in reply to @stephschramm

Mathias Eichler @einmaleins 54m #BEchat because in the past the business model for capitalism was Walmart: how cheap and crappy can we make it while people still buy it.

Breanne Coats @brecoats 54m @einmaleins I hope it will change the focus from how do you just cut costs to innovation & being a step ahead of the competition #BEchat in reply to @einmaleins

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 54m @einmaleins Why do huge earnings challenge capitalism? #BEchat in reply to @einmaleins

Mathias Eichler @einmaleins 57m #BEchat how will the Apple success story redefine business is taught in school? Not Walmart is the king of doing business anymore, but Apple

Michael Gruener @MichaelGruener 57m @brecoats I want to hear “We’re allowing the Keystone Pipeline,” but I know that’s not gonna happen #Ithoughtweneededjobs #BEchat in reply to @brecoats

Mathias Eichler @einmaleins 58m My take on $Aapl earnings. What can we learn from in how we run our businesses? Producing numbers like that challenges capitalsm. #BEChat

Stephanie Schramm @stephschramm 58m I should own stock considering its just me, my husband a 7 seven year old and we have 5 Apple devices in our home #BEchat

Breanne Coats @brecoats 58m Anyone have predictions for tonight’s #SOTU speech or things they want to hear? #BEchat

Tessa Kravitz @nowtherearetwo 59m lol! “@EmilyILCook: #BEChat is happening right meow!”

Breanne Coats @brecoats 59m @BizExam @einmaleins I’m not sure how Apple’s earning affect everyone’s businesses but I’m sure its stockholders are happy πŸ™‚ #BEchat in reply to @BizExam
