    Where is CRM? The stock compensation per employee seems massive.

    I might be more impressed by some sort of CEO effectiveness measure than an employee popularity contest. Tim Cook, 93%. What that figure, and what is behind it, may hide is not revealed. It is entirely possible that some of the least popular leaders may have a grip on making profit, and rewarding shareholders.

    Has Zuckerberg suddenly had an epiphany after screwing everybody as he climbed to become a billionaire?

    min, Zuckerberg is at least a self made man, and didn't have to climb over anybody to get to the top (nor was anyone forced to buy FB shares) so why the ire?

     

    Better him than most of the fat cats who pay themselves ridiculous salaries for running enterprises someone else founded...

    Who are a few CEO's with low approval ratings who led their companies to massive gains?

    Great question Berylrb. That's what I want to see.

     

    Remember, popularity contests don't make a CEO good or bad.

    Here is an investment strategy. Now that GOOG is near it's high of 844.00 and Apple is near it's (short term) low of $419.00, it is time to sell GOOG, now at 814.30 and buy AAPL,now at $443.66.
    If you had started this strategy on March 5, at which time GOOG hit 844.00 and AAPL hit 419.00, using 100 shares of each as an example, you would be ahead $3,030 on AAPL and you would have saved a loss of $2,466 on GOOG, for a net gain of $5,496.
    I think it is likely that these trends will continue until they meet somewhere in the middle around $600 a share.
    Just a thought.

    steve...you're one smart cookie, a man after my own heart....That's the only way to squeeze water out of rocks. I'm stubbornly waiting for AAPL to go below $400 but so long as it's below $450, it's still a good deal, as it will eventually settle left or right of $550.

    I watched CNBC today trying to make Samsung look good v. APPLE.

     

    CNBC constantly tries to support anybody who criticizes APPLE ?

    Please, rrosey2.....we should be wise not to get in between the Samsung vs APPL fight. It's like comparing apples and oranges, where both are just as good in their own way but a matter of choice for the consuming public. Heard that Samsung shares dropped 2.6% in South Korea on the first day of release. Seems like them Koreans were expecting the moon but only got the sky, so they turned tail and headed for the hills. Heh, heh, heh...

    ben, there's an article about the new Samsung on yahoo! today, and HTC and the iPhone get a mention, but they NEVER mention BBRY's Z10! What is behind all this partisanship, I wonder; are these "news" services taking back-handers, do you think?

    gwynfryn....it's hardly surprising that yahoo! are biased and unfair in their reporting, particularly as cell-phones are a very sensitive subject for diehards, as they tend to get emotional about what they like or what they own and don't care about anything else, so I don't think anyone is taking kickbacks. Personally, I don't think much of the Z10, as there's hardly excitement in the market with this item, since it has taken too long to come out and short on features. It's DOA and only preferred by the feds, including Obama.

    ben, I can't get excited about any phone, but if I was in the market, QNX would be my choice. I wouldn't do wireless money transfers, say, with anything else.

    gwynfryn....my exact sentiments, as I regard all modern conveniences, including cell-phones and computers, simply as tools to improve (or complicate, to some people) our way of life, not something to be obsessed with, as many young people do, so I can't understand why many people are so impassioned about their cell-phones and get terribly worked up when others condemn what they're using. I think it has a lot to do with pride and ego. You can't imagine the criticisms I received from AAPL diehards, until I had to appeal to their good manners to cease their virulent attacks on me.

    You take your chances when you use your cell phone to do wireless money transfers. Cell phones are probably the easiest way to hack into and get personal info. Better check it out.
