    that's one of those things that define how a manager is doing his/her job ...... believe me , it's pure hell
    to get have your 20-30 hrs bounced all over ... worst thing it keeps a pt from working for somebody else

    numerous contracts .. pretty obvious the date for ER won't be set until a few are signed and
    they can make a splash in the CC .... maybe a word ,also , on the registration for
    more shares/warrants ... g

    spin it off to who ??? Thank Sammy for not spending the quid to keep the facility upgraded , now Ginny has
    an albatross to deal with ... they can't write anything off because the equipment has all been depreciated and
    they are not about to raze the buildings .. Instead of spending almost half a trillion on buybacks , Sam could
    have plowed some of that back into the company ... IBM will survive , but i fear the company is in
    for quite a battering ... garce

    lol .. take a job with company , then see how they spin your head around and you have no idea if you are
    coming or going ... still not an excuse for leaving young child or infant farther away than your elbow , much of that stuff has to do with our ginned up society ... expect to see a lot more of this kind of stuff ..

    we have a small crew and have discussed just about everything ... fatigue sets in after months on the briney ...
    i'm getting restless with no date for earnings .. i don't want to wait 'til the last week in sept , but i feel that
    they want a few contracts signed first so they have some substance in the CC ...

    nobody wants IBM's chip plants/equipment .. it's old .. Palmissano was too busy buying back shares , than
    to reinvest in the company ... he went out on top and Ginny has to cobble something together ..
    What IBM should have done , 15 years ago , was to spinoff the chip unit and couple of others as
    WHOLLY OWNED subsidiaries ...
    IBM will turn things around , as it slogs through another transition , the problem will be that their newer
    business lines will not have the same moats as before and they face some pretty nimble competition in
    their wheel house ....
    i will posit , that , IF , they begin to seriously mine their patent trove and monetize it properly , they
    can get those revs back up there , with huge margins and robust earnings ... the opportunity is there,
    but i'm not so sure about the culture ... g

    IBM's chip unit

    Apple doesn't assemble iPhones in Vermont. Nor does Samsung. ORCL chips are from Japan. Why should IBM put money in assets and a business that can't compete with labor costs in Taiwan & China? exactly ... IBM saw the end of hardware way back in the 80's and has
    been shedding ever since ... for proprietary reasons , the company chose to remain
    vertical with chips , now the end is near ...
    as i have oft stated , IBM should have , over the years , created wholly owned subsidiaries
    to continue running hardware , then sell'em when margins got into single digits ...
    ... I was not clear with the comments about Sammy P ... if the end goal was to exit
    everything but design/development in chips , then SP did the right thing , but it resulted
    in an Albatross that nobody wants ... they should just write it all down ... ooopps ..
    all the equipment has already been depreciated , too bad .. just junk the operation and
    move on ...
    FACT ... IBM does not want to totally abandon chips , but also does not want the
    headaches of running production , just R&D .. that's fair enough ... most of the
    successes that IBM has had over the years , with everything hardware has been from
    phenomenal R&D of MATERIALS .. which they will continue to do .. graphene being
    on the hit parade ... as long as IBM can make new inroads in chip development , they can
    make bales of money ... there's just some soiled laundry that needs attention before
    the real traction gets going ...
    PS .. next year we should be hearing more about the batteries that recharge from
    air , as noted in their 5 year plans from 2010 ... could be some real revs coming
    from that front ... g

    and the only serious buyer has come out said the only value in IBM's chip biz are the engineers ...
    plant and equipment are not ..

    i thought that the deal was for a one/one swap of GE for SYN .. which would mean that
    GE shares will have to be higher than SYN for the swap to be more expensive ..
