So I want to use this, but I have to download XCode..ugh! And seems like it works with one display only? The downside of having diff apps for diff displays created isn't so bad. But i'd like both displays.

God damn. Dude who was already big. Headed up Caesars Interactive stuff and bought Playtika, Israeli startup, for $150M in 2011 when they had under a dozen employees. Playtika would be sold for $4.4B to consortium of Chinese companies in 2016-07. 29x increase in 5 years. When Caesars was bought and taken by private in late 00s I think, it was valued at around $31B. Playtika got pretty damn big. Ahead of Zynga and Mojang. Only behind King and Supercell. -- Apparently the initial sale also caused Israel to become big in [mobile] games. 200+ game startups in Israel now. Impressive. #pattern_our_way_of_taking_making_money_is_fair_fine_ala_SV

"We continue to have view that there is enough market to have all reach these goals and by 2020 expect it will more clear whether this is a 'two-horse' race (Amazon/Microsoft) or 'three-horse' (adding Google)." Partially as a result of these projections, Citi forecasts a 12-month price target for Google at $1,350, Amazon at $1,900, and Microsoft at $97."
