Is SteveB out of Ideas?

The Borg-Yahoo merger won't work. Here's why. It's like taking the two guys who finished second and third in a 100-yard dash and tying their legs together and asking for a rematch, believing that now they'll run faster.

Here's the weird thing: I first heard that line about the 100-yard dash from Ballmer himself, maybe a decade ago.

That was funny. Next question: who/what will do the same to Google? The longest running high tech companies were probably Bell and IBM. IBM is still there, sorta, but Bell is gone. Things move a lot faster these days.

I guess Siemens and Phillips are still around too. But not like they were.
