Rate is higher and High Tech Companies are Bond Holders

Please see the news first, "Apple Is the New Pimco, and Tim Cook Is the New King of Bonds". Very interesting, those high tech companies like to invest in the "boring" bonds.
And I personally purchased some muni bonds as well, though it went down after the purchase.

Some readers/borrowers asked me about my opinion about the rates. Personally I think it will go down, but I could be wrong. And you can tell that I am not concerned too much about the high interest rates(otherwise my bonds will lse some money as well).

There are lot of talks about the innovations from the high tech companies. But a lot of companies' strategy is just to do better than the competitors. My Marathon training coach changed the software from to I do not know the exact reason, but the compatibility with garmin should be one of the reasons. I do not have to do anything with final surge(It pulled the data from Garmin).

Speaking of Garmin, we all know their GPS products, sports watches, etc. And mots of us runners are using garmin watches. I know Apple Iwatch tried to get into the sports watch market if they can. But Iwatch does not have GPS watch with it,though it has the hear rate monitor.

I used Garmin watch for a few years. And I liked their service pretty well. My runner 620 had some problems for the last 2 days. After talking to them for only two days, they will send me a new one(I used for over one year now).
