  • Windows Blue Should End Microsoft Bull Run [View article]
    You may be right. So far, since this was written, MSFT is up over 10%.

    Sometimes the squirrel finds a rock.

  • AOL May Be Ready To Break Out [View article]
    A lot of people laugh at Patch. But I look at the sites here in Atlanta and I see immense potential.

    If they weren't required to make payments to the government, the Postal Service would be in the black. We still need a postal service, which is one of four agencies given cabinet positions by Pres. Washington.

  • Any Hope In Facebook? [View article]
    MySpace is now run by a group under Justin Timberlake, and has reformed itself as a music site. It was doing OK last I heard, but I haven't heard anything in a while, and since it's not publicly traded there's nothing to see.

    I hope for 2 1/2, but I'm not going to promise ponies when there is no hay in the barn.

    Murdoch can do what he wants. We just both happen to think he's daft.

    I think Murdoch's statement indicates he still doesn't understand why MySpace failed, which is that Murdoch mucked with it, tried to brand a young person's site with an old person's brand (Fox), and treated it as a media entity rather than a tech company.

  • VMware And The Health Cloud [View article]
    The interoperability partnership is essential to the growth of the market. CERN has ongoing contracts delivering revenue, and has those customers tied to it very closely. ATHN came into the market through billing, not EHR. CERN leads EHR.

    I think most of their success is tied to their ability to sell, not their production. Chinese panels are still cheaper.

    CTL was already an ISP when it bought the former US West. They shouldn't have sold themselves as a cloud player when they were something else. But that's what theyr'e doing.

    Don't know much about WIN or FTR.I'll look around

  • Short Facebook Ahead Of Earnings? [View article]
    They were light in some respects. Shorts did very badly everywhere this earnings season. When the market wants to go up, it goes up. Won't see me crying about it.

    I do apologize for being wrong on this call, though. I really do.

  • Krzanich Not The Big Intel Announcement [View article]
    Giving software an equal voice in the boardroom with hardware manufacturing is key to what we both want to see.

    Sort of amazed no one else has commented on this.

  • How Rometty Will Get IBM's Groove Back [View article]
    Very few companies have the power, and the obligation, to look further than the current quarter. IBM is one of these. Other companies which thought they had this power, however, have failed in executing it.

  • Is Amazon A Bargain Again? [View article]
    Yes, the margins are thin. But they're real. And they're getting a lot more growth out of investing that money in the business than any grocery store I've ever seen.

    No, they make money. They have operating margins. They just put all that money back into the business and avoid debt financing.

    That's fine. But you've missed some immense profits.
