Is Microsoft Apple's Friend or Foe?
"Let's accept this as a Machiavellian play for survival and growth. There's no love lost between Jobs and Gates. Don't always look at history, though. Rather, look at present reality."
AOL & Excite@Home Deal: Hit or Myth?
Talk of a deal between America Online and cable Internet king Excite@Home is never long gone. But does it make sense? "Despite surface appearances, AOL and ATHM hold no temptations for each other."
Peapod Out of Bread?

"Why do so many on this board revere this company and its stock, or at least consider it a viable long-term investment? Or even a viable short-term investment?"

Broken Hands, Broken Thumbs, and HMOs
"Before I defend HMOs, let me say that they did get too arrogant. However, people want low cost health care that doesn't deny them a thing. HMOs are not charities. They are businesses set up to make profits."
