“No surprise for a big company. Jack Welch of GE used to re-evaluate businesses within the umbrella company and drop underperformers and build up strong businesses. They would acquire new businesses that had promise. For a long time GE was considered the most valuable company and Jack Welch was considered the best manager in the USA.

“Thanks for the link but the Nexus was not pulled from the Google Play Store for underperformance. It was pulled because Judge Lucy Koh awarded Apple an injunction to ban the sale of the device in the USA. Apparently the Judge believes that the Siri search and the Google search box are too similar or the same. The patent violation was "unified search '604".”

“Still is. GE is a very no drama company. They put out their products, they work, and that's it.
It's nothing like Georgia Pacific, D R A M A T I C ! ! ! ! ! ! !”
“I hope this lives up to its promise. Thank you Mr. Booker. I have one thing to add, its not as monumental as the debt, health care, or vaginal probes. However, with all the Wounded Warrior participating in the Paraylmpics why is America the only country not airing any of it.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 will increase Preorders calm Apple, and patent troubles Nexus? http://goo.gl/0GLO1”

“Because those reality shows bring in bigger ratings. I myself would have watched the Paraylmpics. I did not know any of this was going on. But then again why would news etc be interested in a good human interest story that shows our young people that no matter what you can do something good and not to feel sorry for yourself.”
“If I want to watch a soap opera I'll tune into General Hospital.
This Palin/Johnston stuff is too dull for words.
All of them are only in ir for the money and what they tthink is fame.
Pat_he_tic, the entire bunch.
“Huffpo doesn't even ask whether I "want" or "like", the pop ups burst forth unbidden. Always designed to obscure the text, they often don't click "off" and I have to shut down the whole enchilada. Hey what's with the recent "Facebook" bashing, is Zuckerberg a Republican or something? Poor guy is in for a beating.
“Cowan was wrong, and deserves every bit of punishment levied on her. I hope most of you however do not miss the lesson being taught here. It could save your or your childrens life. Pedestrians "have the right of way." HOWEVER..... look both ways before you cross, keep your head on a swivel while crossing, and be ready to "evade" just in case a driver is not paying attention. You may have the right of way, but 2 tons of car, or 40 tons of truck if not under control does not recognize your legal standing. Quite simply..... you die and the offending driver goes to jail. It would seem common sense died a long time ago.
“dont put this off on the victims. yes, we should watch while crossing the crosswalk,but do not judge them by saying they have no common sense. they may have not been able to s ee them as well.come on now...rest in peace baby girl. she had no concern or what she did,that deserves life in prison or death”

“I've often wondered why people AREN'T more cautious crossing the street. Yes, they have the right of way, but that is cold comfort after something like this happens.”
“Horendous! Praying for an end to this fire and destruction. Every time there is a fire, they talk about victims, meaning humans... and it makes me sick. There are thousands of innocent victims - birds, animals, geckos, mice... humans... victims galore...
“Yep, the seeds have long been planted to transition FB from a faux social site to a bona fide commerce site. FB has a wealth of information that other companies would've only dreamed of before. Remember all those surveys and registration forms you ignored after buying products or visiting stores? Your FB activity has been one loooooong survey where you went above and beyond the info they needed.
“Facebook should pay its users a percentage of the money they make from the users oversharing personal information about themselves, and the more intimate details about themselves people reveal on their Facebook pages, the more money they'd get. This could be a good way for them to incentivize users to overshare even more so that the advertisers and other companies that partner with Facebook could have more useful data to track users, and the users would get a cut of the money from it, making it a win-win. Yes, Facebook users would continue to not have any privacy, but people who overshared and who had very lax privacy settings would get financially compensated the most, while people who didn't say much about themselves and set their privacy settings not to share their personal information with people they don't know would get hardly any money from this scheme. And there could be grand prizes of like a million dollars to the people who overshare the most and who have the least concern for their own privacy,
“Why should Shatner, or any other celebrity for that matter, be immune or passed through simply for their fame? If I'm subject to being checked and frisked, they should be as well. As for being a terrorist, of course Shatner isn't, no one said he was, but stars have shown time and time again, they have no respect or feeling of obligation when it comes to laws: DUi's, drug possession, robbery, weapons charges, assault, even in a few cases, murder. Fame doesn't equal untouchable.
“Believe it or not, there are many people in the food industry that care about what they do. The food may be semi-real, but it is still real people using real money, and that's how you stay employed. At my first restaurant, we worked in an open kitchen and I wouldn't even bend over to throw away spilled food, giving the assumption that I may put it back in the fryer. I practice kitchen karma. I need to believe that whatever evil transpires in my own kitchen will come back to bite me, ten times worse. So, I cook for strangers the same way I cook for my family, even if the majority of the menu may be heat-n-eat.
