    Part of why IBM would never stoop to buying EMC

    IBM and EMC would also face enormous challenges dropping swords after years of warfare;

    EMC executives show little humility and no deference to Big Blue.

    At the Boston conference, CEO Joe Tucci compared IBM's strategy for selling Shark systems to the McDonald's Happy Meal--a popular but bland fast-food kiddie plate.

    He said IBM peddles its software and other products as its "burgers and fries" and passes out Sharks like the plastic toys that accompany meat and potatoes.

    "In their Happy Meal, they're giving away a Shark," Tucci told scores of analysts and investors gathered at the event.

    The comment enraged executives at IBM's headquarters in Armonk, N.Y.


    IBM near ALL TIME and 52 week HIGHS.

    EMC near ALL TIME, and 52 week LOWS.

    Dream on about an IBM acquisition, low-lifes.
