    Cloud computing is the future. IBM buys softlayer makes huge mistake.. Read more.

    IBM is a profit margin obsessed company, they cannot compete with Amazon Web Services as Amazon is happy operating with a razon thin profit margin. Gini Rometty is an idiot who served on the AIG board from 2006-2009, who oversaw the biggest insurance debacle in history.

    • Lenovo is looking to get into the smartphone business. They will buy Blackberry and farm out all the software and servers to IBM Global. IBM Global will set all this to run in the cloud in the new data centers.

      Amazon is going to have to spend big R&D dollars to keep up with IBM.

      If the technology is right and IBM's price is competitive then IBM will get its share of deals.

      Next to ORCL, because Larry loves a fight, AMZN could not have a more formidable competitor than IBM.

      IBM is acquiring 13 new data centers with the deal and probably most of the staff. While IBM pays cash for acquisitions, there are going to be new employment contracts with IBM stock awards and options. IBM's steady share price growth since the lows of 2009 makes IBM the acquirer of choice for those wanting to stay with the technology and sell into IBM's base.

    • got news for you. Cloud computing is not the future. Its here now. You might even be using it without knowing. Got more news for you. When is the last time that IBM made a mistake in their purchases? AND......don't you think that IBM knows about 'razor thin' profit margins? All of a sudden they're idiots? Give me a break.
