THAT's better than simply taking that money and investing it into the division?
I don't know, that could just be throwing good money after bad. This isn't a software division, it's not even like their server hardware division, it's chipmaking. It's kind of a go-big-or-go-home game where your competitors -- well-funded types like, say, Intel -- can easily pour many billions of dollars into next-generation fabrication processes and equipment which will readily put any half-assed investment to shame. I don't think IBM's chip business has the customer base to make "go big" profitable, or any reasonable plan to acquire new customers, so "go home" makes a lot of sense here.
Now, the wisdom / folly of gutting the rest of IBM's various divisions is left as an exercise to the reader.
Google feeds their employees dead cows and chickens on a regular basis. They should have used plants. These days, quinoa is in common use in foodservice, as are beans and eggplants, and lentils could also have been easily used instead. Google should leave beef out of its activities altogether.
A meaningful distinction, but have you tried getting hired in Europe as an American? It's kind of intense. I'm still working on it.
(Still, certain it's far better than the other way around).
OKCupid's next step should be a button all users see on login: "Do you support the marriage-equality movement?" [yes/no]. If you click No it deletes your account.
In for a penny, in for a pound, right?
(Sorry, dropped out of the fantasy too early there.)
