  3. Obviously, China has been paying attention to Democrats proliferate spending on things that serve no purpose, and, with a massive influx of ObamaCash(tm) from foolish projects, China now has plenty of disposable income to waste on silly projects.

  6. Hi Phil -Good insights. I know you mention it, but I think it is worth emphasizing that the decision whether to pursue an OEM path depends on the characteristics of the market. Some markets (e.g., cell phone, disk storage) are oligopolies where the path to the end customer is controlled by only a few companies. In that case, an OEM go to market approach may be the best way to maximize revenues and company valuation. Pursuing an alternative approach may alienate the large players and they subsequently will not engage. Marc
