And remember that IBM failed to build a data center for the State of Texas too, another IBM sweet-spot, right?
For a laugh, one review at Glassdoor reports that an Aon division or location has created a FUN committee, to make the work place more fun. Incredible stupid.
You got out just when the old IBM fell apart under Akers and the new, improved shareholder friendly version was kicked into gear.
I have a good life now. I regret the donut comment and will apologize for that. But did you read my more recent post on guest and escorts? Not one other American firm has such a policy that I know of. It is a culture of Fear and Intimidation. And this is a free country. Your advice has merit, so pardon me for taking 2 minutes out of my extremely busy day to comment.
$11 billion in damage. Gee, maybe India is not such a good place to have work so placed? Maybe bad IT support? Hmmmmm, better assess that in light of shareholder value.
IBM does not know what they sell anymore. They have changed so much from anything resembling the old IBM (pick your decade) that whatever they do sell today they might not have tomorrow as they may sell it off anyway. With a business in such internal flux, it is damn hard to have a sales strategy and execute it.
WHO ARE YOU? It is $13.45 on the morning today. I guess you like proving yourself a blithering idiot and like to pound out exclamation points. Ok, let's have it your way. $12 by Friday would be A LOSS FROM WHERE WE ARE NOW!!!! OK, so you now want Xerox to go down in value instead of UP?
Mostly wrong. True there are young Geeks and programmers writing apps like happy demons and some make a killing, but the numbers compared to the total tech population is very small indeed. As a technical professional performing managed services, it is far from easy and often quite frustrating. IBM has other probems at hand than those you posit. Primarily financial engineering gone mad. I found it interesting in one sense that both John Akers and Ginny were on the Board of Directors at old Lehman Brothers when it folded in 2008 under #$%$ Fuld.
So the team that has been running IBM into the ground, number crunchers, also have made promising developments???????????????? You cannot have it both ways.
AND IT CLOSED AT $12.54, WOW, YES, STAYED AT 12 ALL DAY LONG. And so ends another week with our idiot savant. Have a non Xerox weekend folks.
Los Angeles - Aon Centre has been sold. Having eliminated human assets aplenty, now Chicago,eh, LONDON is trying out dumping hard assets. Oh, anyone ever thing that INVERSION is wrong?
What a nut. It is FRIDAY, it is at $12.64 now, came down from higher, and YOU BELIEVE???? Wait, I did not use a gazillion !!!!! like you did. Your nonsense gets worse and worse. Find a lunatic bin please.
Do not forget EVER that his first responsibility is to his HEDGE FUND which gives him zero, repeat, ZERO real experience in retail. A few months ago we bought an exercise bicycle at Sears and the rank and file ON THE FLOOR HATE HIM.
