  1. So…

    Elliott Peters decided to flip Edgar ‘Middlebronfman’ the ‘Fickle Finger of Fate’ and go to work for the ‘High Priest of Tech’, Monsignor Jobs.

    Good for him. I hope his days with Apple are filled with productivity and creativity.

    “We strongly believe that one or more very strategic opportunities may come along that we are in a unique position to take advantage of because of our strong cash position. I think we have demonstrated a really strong track record of being very disciplined with the use of our cash. We do not let it burn a hole in our pocket, we do not allow it to motivate us to do stupid acquisitions,” said Steve Jobs, chief executive officer of Apple, during a conference call with financial analysts.

    This applies to single Apple personnel as well as whole corporations… remember to think ‘strategic acquisitions’.
