This last few weeks has been kind of amazing as I've watched companies like Oracle and Cisco, which are well regarded for brilliant moves, seem to suddenly act as if they were naked and wanted to run with scissors. Then, when I was convinced that I'd seen the worst, Sony decided to piss off the open source crowd and now is likely looking at the death of the PS3 in the U.S. I'm really starting to wonder if a lot of executive managers are trying to get on Jon Stewart's "Daily Show" and not in a good way. Let's talk about corporate foolishness this week.
So I don't have much to do about Oracle. So I could care less about weather they die or not. I think they and HP can just go down in flames. Cisco I have had too much experience with their crummy routers. Their consumer line is a joke. I was going to buy my daughter a Flip until I learned of the sale. Sony unfotunately was the Apple of Japan at one time. I remember a time when buying Sony ment buying something really good. Now it's just another brand name that is getting more tarnished by the minute. I have a Sony Bravia TV and just bought a Sony laptop. I bought them because of their price not because of the name. That say's it all.
