Look for the patent troll phase next

Declining corporations follow a pattern. IBM is in the massive "restructuring" (downsizing) phase now that all the engineers who made the company great have retired or been fired to make room for (cheaper) "new blood." What's left is mainly the marketing droids that agonize over what font to use, the right color for a wheel and explore the potential market for nasally applied fire. The next phase will likely be patent troll followed by eventual extinction. John Watson is no doubt spinning in his grave.
