a simple plan for Microsoft's revenge:
Gates and the gang should sponsor a liberal democrat in
the presidential race. If they can get someone on the
November great, if not a write in campaign
would do. A $50,000,000 spent on an aggressive media
campaign would have the
effect of splitting the
democratic vote and forcing Gore to move to the left thus
guaranteeing a Bush victory. As an extra little kick
could do the same in the NY Senate race.
Concurrent to this Microsoft should launch a hardcore
anti-Government media blitz.
3) Microsoft should
blacklist all the government lawyers by making it clear to
every law firm in the nation and other corporations
that any organization that hires these lawyers in the
future will never do business with the Company. Same
goes for any lawyer
involved in any class actions
that may come up.
They will win on appeal
eventually, but in the mean time they should punish those
responsible for this injustice.
Stern is going to have a big impact.
TiVo does a deal to do MP3 it will have a nice run
when bandwith catches up (2-3years) the revenue from
services will really be something, TiVo will be AOL of A/V
Microsoft's internal view of this, as always, is
that more cumbersome software sells new hardware which
sells new software. There is an end to this food chain,
though, when some righteous
third-party swoops in with
a simple and insanely great alternative. I choose
the words "insanely great" quite deliberately if you
know what I mean.
AAPL is "on sale", you are slow (in the head) if
you are not buying.
even if Russia went back to
communisum and Clinton is caught with a stripper and a
monkey rolling in puddi....But i digress.
