Not sure if a label of King would have been more proper...

My cousins owned a Colecovision
My friend owned an Intellivision
My Dad still had his Pong game

They just kinda sucked compared to Atari...

I see your point though...but I can not remember ever seeing a post where any of the more respected GG posters (like BB and Mike Buckley etc...) ever state that an investor in the GG tech markets should not have to worry about keeping up with the markets...

In fact, I am almost positive that I HAVE read posts here, at the GG board, which stated that the GG companies, while offering higher returns with less risk, require more attention than other types of investments (ie..old economy stocks)...

This is due, of course, to the rapidly changing technology environment that the Gorillas live in, which causes GG investors to stay alert for any discontinuous innovations which may render their Gorilla obsolete...

If I misunderstood your point with this post, then just ignore all this...

By the way...I had my Atari up until a couple of years ago. It still worked well, and the games are still fun, despite the lousy graphics.

The Atari system, it turns out, was a stellar investment...even if the company turned out to be otherwise.

I still hold the record for Missile Command...don't try to tell me that you were better...I will just be forced to laugh at you.
