    Well, nice, but when is the next shoe dropping? It seems like, over the past 2 years, that whenever good news from IBM is announced, there are 2+ announcements with bad news.

    I love dividends myself, but I do sorta worry that IBM is eating all of its seed corn in the name of shareholder value, seeing as their actual SALES haven't been all that hot.

    I think they are running out of levers and need to get their top line going and growing. Share buybacks are great, don't get me wrong, but after a while you have to start to ask the question: are they not able to find better investment opportunities for that money?

    How many layoffs are needed to sustain this increase in dividend?
