Wow! A big company stops growing and as always they begin to spend their cash hoard on silly acquisitions to justify their big salaries but eventually they all end the same way. Let's see Digatal comes to mind off the top of my head or maybe data general, Wang etc. And they just had to buy RSA AT A PREMIUM because someone else would've bot them . Hey you could of bot this company for a song back a couple of years ago (that's why they pay the top brass the big bucks, anybody off the street could've of made this acquisition). EMC you should consult with the company (down the road) that overpaid for Guidant and ask them how their feeling with that smart acquisition. I guess that's why they have fools gold. Time to move on and never look back.
