MS's future was sealed when,
for whatever reason(s), MS failed to retain Alex St. John
when the manufacturing base has been offshored anyway
Remote and local monitoring...of PCs and workstations

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

how utterly inane
