I really do NOT get it.

IBM seems all at sea.

It just doesn’t seem to be able to get anything right these days.

This video commercial was so sexist. As a father of three daughters and an ex-IBMer I am pretty amazed that MY IBM no longer had the smarts to see that this was going to offend the very target audience they were trying to woo.

Last month they bought Weather Channel assets saying that needed that for their Cloud Computing initiative. Now this.

Has it got anything to do with the current CEO? I am just asking.

I get the impression that IBM is being run by the 85-year old Warren Buffett who has admitted he is not much into computers.
