Wag of My Finger to Paul Allen
After reading Freakonomics 2, my respect for Paul Allen and his team skyrocketed as they try to solve big problems like hurricanes, global warming and malaria(with mosquito killing laser beam-not a joke). But now, in my eyes, he’s just a plain old patent troll(like the one near his office).
HP vs Dell: Storage Showdown
Does HP genuinely want 3PAR or do they just want Dell to spend as much money on it as they can trying to buy it? When I saw Dell had upped the bid this morning, I thought it had been a brilliant move on HP’s part, by forcing Dell to pay more. Now I am not sure what their real intentions are. Maybe they really need this company to compliment their services, or they just don’t want to loose against Dell in any front. No matter how this pans out, there’s going to be some very happy investors on 3PAR’s side.
Interesting conversation from Charlie Wilson’s War:
There’s a little boy and on his 14th birthday he gets a horse… and everybody in the village says, “how wonderful. The boy got a horse” And the Zen master says, “we’ll see.” Two years later, the boy falls off the horse, breaks his leg, and everyone in the village says, “How terrible.” And the Zen master says, “We’ll see.” Then, a war breaks out and all the young men have to go off and fight… except the boy can’t cause his legs all messed up. and everybody in the village says, “How wonderful.”
Now the Zen master says, “We’ll see.”
I just started a new blog on Tumblr where I plan to focus on writing more insightfull article about startups, business and tech. How wonderful you say?
