high line EuroTrash™ automotive mfr's
have long established that the road to profitability does not equate to selling as many vehicles as FORD

MS's future was sealed when,
for whatever reason(s), MS failed to retain Alex St. John

Remote and local monitoring...of PCs and workstations

Really nice indeed, but will people ever care?
it's in difficult times like these

why am I reminded of the late Howard Hughes

interesting timing, this article
"The previous year Chicago magazine ranked him as the city's second-meanest person, and he complained about not being No. 1. (That was Michael Jordan.)"
iShare values are doing just fine w/o Apple doing anything designed exclusively to raise the value of your iShare holdings
devices and services is an exciting adventure for us

any developer or product hustler using the word "exciting" when touting their latest and greatest needs to be put up against a brick wall and shot dead
does not compute

since 'zon is a nonprofit corp anyway, a strike would likely only serve to raise the share price

Hello! Bill? Yeah, this is Carl. So how's it goin'?

Wait! What? Per the recent NSA revelations & PC HW & SW supposedly all riddled w/backdoors, I thought there was no such thing as genuine cyber security.
Reminds me of some U.S. auto-mag review of a mid-70's Saab Turbo in which the reviewer declared it "the Earth Shoe" of turbo-powered vehicles, claiming a somewhat less than impressive zero-to-sixty in an afternoon.

It’s a PC that is virtually without limits — and within five years I predict it will be the most popular form of PC sold in America.” — Bill Gates, Nov 2001.
Most memorable Ballmerism I can recall: "Why do you care about clean code?" IIRC, from SB to a MS code zombie not working fast enough to satisfy SB. Unfortunately, I did not save the doc and so cannot properly attribute the source. If anyone here can help me out in that regard, it would be much appreciated. TIA.
