    So far, my experience with following Dan Loeb has been that he is good at valuation, good at activism, but no good at walking away quietly from a fight. Hirai and management vs. Loeb and owners.

    Eh...his meager share ownership will NOT convince SNE...if they dont want to spin the company off. Japanese companies have a notorious reputation of not giving foreign investors their fair shot.


    Chances are...Loeb is not going to get it...


    What happened to SNE stocks today besides the yen/$ pull???

    I must agree with Sony's CEO. If we look at Apple, it has integrated
    its devices with all kinds of media. Sony has the hardware and many
    of the media to make it successful. It just needs to engineer quality products and have all its media at the consumers' finger tips. by doing so, it can have a nice stream of income while also selling the hardware.
    The profit from the media would be greater considering a lot of it is its own and Sony would not have to share the profit like what Apple must do.
    Sony needs to find a designer and engineers who can design many desirable products with a super interface that can be used to buy and buy Sony media (products from others as well).

    SNE's Japanese CEO listen to outsiders? In Loeb's deference he was perhaps in a toying mood.

    Dan Loeb suggestion will come through, when the world is ready for it. Sony and Japan are in the process of transformation, so is the USA. In the new GLOBAL ORDER both Lobe and Hirai will prosper. Sony has already placed its new foundation stone, ready to go. Loeb is one of few Americans that is GLOBAL in mentality.
