Is it just me or does anyone else feel like they're in the twilight zone while readiing this company's press releases?!?
ibm...the iconic American company, has now bet it's entire future on the success of China and India
let me know how that works out for you
big blow took a hugh gamble years ago changing from a company that had a cut-throat mentality towards it's competitors...to one that extended that mentality to it's employee (or better stated...many, many ex-employees)
model appeared to be working but real cost-savings came from headcount reduction and squeezing existing employees until their eyes bleed
moving forward from here, no more cost-savings to be had and what's more important, seriously flawed business model will make this company as difficult to turn around as the titanic...with similar results over the next couple of years
at some point you have to consider employee morale in the analysis of the future success or failure of your company
ok, so this company has been a piece of #$%$ for the past 5 years,
...the 1 year chart doesn't look too shabby!
they have to figure out a way to be just annoying enough so that some company like cisco, ericsson, qualcomm...buys them
methinks your grasp on weiner's prowess is a bit inflated
it's time for you to let go of weiner and get out and socailize with the beautiful, living-breathing female demographic
sorry advanced but weiner is down in a big way
a lot of people have been very hard on weiner lately, with the exception of his wife...Huma
(ain't that always the way?!?)
the average investor recognizes the value of this company's technologies...but no bp has the bawls to bring them to market!
google: Peregrine Pharmaceuticals: Good Looking, But Still Single
market up over 150%
let's hope they all go the way of the dodo!
what type of person looks to thrive on the misfortune of others anyway...ridiculous(e) db(s)

author makes many excellent points, and for an overwhelming majority of shareholders is simply stating the obvious
I'm sure there will be lummoxes who'll argue that mister softee is a stable/dividend paying stock that isn't going anywhere. but with the amount of money spent on r&d during his tenure, and $80 *billion* dollars in cash, they're chart should have a steady appreciation in share price like google's, or even the meteoric rise of apple's
company is trading like they OWN Amgen!!!
but then again, sometimes things happen for a reason
here's your opportunity to buy the *original* company that developed these technologies, and it even comes with it's own manufacturing facility!
full disclosure...I'm long PPHM and Amgen should be too : )
ok...at this point I've got to believe that ballman is intentionally sabotaging mr. softee's success
u couldn't hamstring/destroy a company any quicker even if you let Larry Ellison script it!!!
the last thing mr softee should do is get involved with any possible acquisition of nokia (or crackberry for that matter)
having said that they probably will
they've already bit the bullet and are manufacturing their own tablet. why can't they manufacture a smartphone that can compete with apple and samsung (my God they've got $70 billion in cash)?!?
- banish the guys who designed the previous windows phones
- poach whole departments from apple and samsung for design and manufacture of 'the new windows phone'
- design an open, windows os that's an extension of 'windows anywhere' os, but one that any manufacturer could simply plug their hardware into (and s#$%$ that metro-sexual tile #$%$!!!)
