    They will not string out 200 engineers too long

    One of the more dopey comments you will see on a MB. And that is really saying something.

    Nobody at IDCC will have a single extra day off regardless of what happens in this process.

    • Don't be so quick to judge X-ray. Retention of top employees is a big problem when buyouts and mergers happen. Lots of folks don't want to be part of bigger organizations, and some big organizations, like the one I work for kind of have bad reputations for buying companies and then doing stupid things to them. We have messed up plenty of the companies we have bought over the years. LOL

      • I may have assumed he meant those engineers were currently being strung out.

        OK, I will take that under consideration. Now, about your contention this will be a signed and sealed deal before anyone hears about it. What about they way the sellout of Navtac and tele-atlas went? Or 3par? In both cases these were very much in the public eye, as Tom tom made a bid, garmin countered it, and Tom tom came in higher and won.

        You may be correct that most acquisitions are done, inked, and signed before being announced to Joe public, but it is not always the case.
