What a week! In the NorthEast, we are in for a rainy fall weekend. That only means more time to go over these items you may have missed:

Barron’s Alan Abelson [1] cites a "stealthy" market watcher who expects a year end rally that ends badly; Hhmmm, sounds kinda familiar. (If no Barrons sub, go here [2]);

A Surprisingly Bright Outlook for Holiday Shopping [3] from NPD Group;   

• Barron’s speaks with S&P’s Sam Stovall about The Bull’s Fourth Year [4] (If no Barrons sub go here [5]);

•  Prediction: Tivo gets bought. [6] Soon. My guess? Echostar.

James Cramer Roughs Up W [7];

How the Internet Helps Pricing Efficiencies [8] the specific pricing economies of the Long Tail [9], as applied to the Used Book market;

• Speaking of Books: Technical Analysis from A to Z [10], and several other technical reference books discussed here.

Don’t expect [11] a video iPod; Apple’s announcement this week to is more likely to be an update of the original iPod (a little smaller, and Black as a color choice);

Oh, THAT Inflation! [12] Kinda hard to understand how Wall Street is just now discovering inflation (ex-energy [13] or not); And yet, they inisist upon reporting SPX Earnings with Energy! [14];

• Howard Simons does yeoman’s work in Don’t Let Jobs Noise Distract You [15];    Also, please welcome Roger Nusbaum (Random Roger [16]) — now writing for The Street.com [17]

Rationalizing Bubbles, Shaping a Legacy [18]  A terrific smackdown of the Maestro;

• And last, just for fun: 2005 Ig Nobel Prize Winners [19]
