DESERVE some recognition/response for the overlooked NEWS announced on Monday, November 20, regarding LabVIEW?.....I let everyone know (in an entertaining way, I MIGHT ADD) as early as October 30 in post #14567. Come on. If I don't start getting respect from guys of your stature, I will resort to charging an appropriate fee for my prognostications...;)
Here is a respose I recently got from the LLTC board regarding Mr. DiNardo...
" xicor is just next door to lltc. xicor is a messed up company for the last fifteen years i've tracked them. i know friends that left xicor say it is a messed up company with no designers for one thing.
from that, i don't know if lou is talented or blind or don't know where he is heading or what can of worms he will be opening.
it takes years to turn around a messed up company, and may not even be successful.
look at mlin
he certainly be a hero if he does
lltc has many talented people. the engineers and team are the important ones that create and support the products to market. the important business team complements the technical team and makes the company work.
i'm sure someone capable has taken over lou's duties as vp before lou became gm of mix signals at lltc for the last year. lltc has done well for the last year so the transition was a no event. lou is some what a business person whereas reay is a technical person and will bring technical ideas to create great products to market. to me lou does not fit this technical gm position at lltc, but how can one downgrade a person since he holds a top post at lltc.
lou is a talented ambitious person where lltc has many such persons either technical or business. lltc has many high performance proprietary products where no analog companies will have. lltc has an efficient analog proprietary manufacturing facilities with many talent fab/process people.
lou might turn around xicor, but lltc will not suffer since it has not suffer since lou was not vp for the past year

I encourage the regulars to give some thought to an "OPEN LETTER" to King Louis I. I am very confident it would be read and might set the tone for what we do next.
YBRICH: I agree with you about their timing and sincerely hope you didn't lose too much money. As one of the smartest/craftiest posters here I'm sure you found a way to minimize your losses.. Are you buying any calls at these levels... and how liquid are they? (I recognize this may be a stupid question)
