Mr. Cleo

Browsing through the Jan. 9 issue of BusinessWeek I decided it was time for some predictions.

  • Sony will introduce a new eBook reader that will sell for an estimated $300-$500. Prediction: This will be a total flop.
  • There is an article about whether the Dow should ditch GM as part of the DJIA. Prediction: Who cares? The DJIA probably has the highest "most followed/useful information" of anything I can think of.
  • Intel's reinvention will do little to help its bottom line. It looks like a horrible combination of envelope #1 (blame your predecessor) and envelope #2 (reorganize!) at the same time. At the bottom of page 54, new Intel CEO Paul Otellini is asked if he will have a motto as former CEO Andy Grove did. He answers that Grove came up with his after 5 or 6 years on the job and to come back and ask him them. Prediction: Dream on, Paul. 2010 will not find you working at Intel.

Since you mentioned you were surprised at how long you kept the blog going, I thought I'd look at when you started. Your prediction for Paul hasn't come true yet, but you still have 12 months to come out on top in the prediction game.

I don't know anything about the Sony e-reader, but I googled it and was surprised that it still exists. I know about the Kindle, so maybe it is a flop!

Well the blog hasn't seen this much action in quite a while. I should close it more often. :)
