    How about an investors-only board ?

    That's not just NCR. Most everyone except for the top executives is earning less than in past years, and working harder to get it. I just count my lucky stars to have a job and to be overworked. I hope you can find something better if this really is so bad. Life is not a dress rehearsal. Good luck.

    Thanks very much. That's good to hear. The press releases are occasionally reporting small sales of them, so it's good to know there is some market acceptance. sometimes new ideas are great but never result in big sales.

    That is very good to hear that the interactive teller machines are doing well. Not counting the teller time, how does the cost compare with a high-end "typical" ATM? How dependable are they? Do you have any estimates as to how many have been sold in the last few months ? Is pace of sales accelerating?

    Here's how to get even with the evil ones. Buy the stock, work hard, and make some money

  • I know that's not really possible, and I don't really mean it. Disgruntled former employees should have a say. Every company has them. However, as an investor I wish we all could focus more on the future company, not the mid-western past.

    The international business seems to be popping. BUT, the US banking business seems dead. I'm wondering if US banks will embrace the "teller in a box" approach that NCR has spent so much money on. why not just go the next step to the internet?

    News releases so far about "teller in a box" are not inspiring. Small banks buy a machine or two, but that's it. Sometimes business managers outvote common sense; I just don't see a stampede of US banks to embrace the new NCR banking technology. Having a big chunk invested in NCR, I really hope I am wrong, but that's my impression so far.

    Is "teller in a box" just a marketing fantasy, or does the concept have legs?

    Quietly Moving Higher

    Another day with more than 4 million shares traded. It will be testing 38 soon. Might even run to 41 before earnings (as it did last year).

    Lawsuit??

    3.5 million shares is huge volume today. Stock up 3% while rest of the market down. As for lawsuit, there must be something to it, but not a company buster. Decisions so far indicate a class action will be permitted, and it will be before an arbitrator, per choice of plaintiff employees. The employees' law firm seems to have some credibility, and it's pretty hard to lose wage and hour cases. Probably a one day scare at some point, but the overall trend for the company is very positive. CNBC gave it a quick thumbs up yesterday, which acquaints the average Joe with the stock.
