BBC uber alles it is then. All Hail. Well at least it's not that fucking terrorist rag, the Guardian. Which is great for making fucking paper mache heads idiots like you march around with angrily protesting the right to honor kill your sisters.
You forgot to call me a neocon Zionazi apartheid colonialist capitalist Islamophobe. There's a script you know, stick with it.
You are adorable. The BBC spent hundreds of thousands of pounds in court to block the release of their OWN report highlighting how biased they are. There are whole websites dedicated to simply listing the instances of the Beeb's bias.
They run around irritating people just because they can and their go-to answer to everything from Tim Cook on down is "You and what army??"
Of course they're going to ignore the 500 madrassas in England which do precisely the same thing and seek out the only Jewish school they could find than shriek and moan and predict the Evil Jew Menace (tm, BBC) is going to destroy all of civilization. This is what they do every day.
IBM has decided the only way it can make money is to buy and sell other people's companies. Keep the ones it likes, rebrand them and send most of the workforce overseas. For the ones it doesn't like sell them to foreign companies. Forget making 'things', even forget services. Just buy newer companies, typically software and smaller niche industry companies that combine specialized hardware and a narrow service focus for a specific task. Slap a Websphere or IBM Security or Tivoli name on it, push it out into the market arena and see what happens for 2 years. If it works, great, if not, toss it in the bin or sell it to China if there's a hardware component.
Roadmap 2015 almost guarantees that IBM will have near zero US employment soon, and as far as being a US or NYS company? That's paperwork. Become an India based holding company. May as well sell the services division to them soon - they're eating IBM's lunch because customers only care about cost and price, that's it. There is almost no value add for IBM proficiency in the services business. Customers don't care what works and what doesn't as long as everyone is protected by SLAs and insurance. Crappy is good enough. So when IBM waltzes in with a squadron of people to hawk the micromanagement that IBM does like no one else, customers ask "Well that's great but I'm not paying twice as much for an hour or two more uptime each quarter."
The basic problem is that Ginni Rometty is in over her head. But it's not her fault it's the fault of a culture that only looks inward for executive talent. Only lifers need apply. Moreover the senior executives behave like pirates: they are simply disconnected from the realities around them unless they're stripping assets and selling off pieces of the company. SEVEN straight quarters of declining revenues and the best thing Ginni can come up with is sell the low end server biz, the MCC div and of course fire another 5,000 people. Because when you're an IBM lifer that's the only thing they've ever done, the only thing they know how to do.
Don't get me started. W.T.F.?
Just because something about you enrages me.
I plan to open an eatery called Gay Mohammed's Bacon Whiskey Bar
the stuff he uses is 1,000x more potent than morphine
Tweets and Snapchat are the pushing the attention span envelope at this point.
Maybe one out of a thousand. If it's a better career they should pay you more. Otherwise it's an Avocation not a Vocation.
