While IBM’s results continue to confound and contract, Amazon and Google are riding high.
To hear Amazon described as a TECH GIANT cracks me up (and partly because I am an Amazon shareholder and as such have not been able to stop smiling all day).
Amazon’s market cap is now more than TWICE that of poor IBM.
Amazon is better positioned to truly exploit the AI magic of ‘Watson‘ than IBM.
Think about it. Amazon already uses some sophisticated AI to tell us, daily, as to what we should be buying next. Amazon with Watson will rule the World.
Amazon probably does NOT need IBM’s much vaunted, by increasingly long in the tooth, server technology. But it and Google should divi it up.
Don’t for a SECOND think that this is a strange suggestion and that pigs will fly before this will happen.
Remember, remember Wang and DEC from the 1980s. In 1984, Wang was 2nd to IBM in computer revenues. Today it is GONE. GONE. GONE.
DEC for so long was a GIANT, slightly dwarfed by IBM. Today is a buried, forgotten, somewhere inside HP!
So this is not off the charts.
Just remember who told you about this first — on Friday, October 23, 2015, a day when AMZN shares were up 6% on the DAY. SMILE.
