I've often wondered what you would get if you combined Apple and IBM. The two companies have little overlap today in either customers or products, and both have what the other lacks to grow their respective markets significantly. While the cultural issues would likely make such a merger not only inadvisable but impossible to actually do, both firms could learn a lot from the other. So, I'm not suggesting the two companies will merge, though stranger things could happen, but I thought it would be fun to showcase how each could benefit from the other.

Rob, you continue to outdo yourself. This has to be an act. I just hope you're selling your soul at a good price. As with most of your drivel, there is so much wrong here it's hard to know where to begin. So I'll just leave it at that and hope the bloggers who DO know what's going on don't drive too much traffic to your utter nonsense in hopes you'll eventually have to get a real job as a stereo salesman.

I've often wondered why people like you write completely pointless articles like this.

"I've often wondered why people like you write completely pointless ... [comments] like this."

As an aside, i thought the Charolette Bronte/Poppy Z. Brite comparison essay was completely pointless as well.
