John Myers

Hey all-

Welcome to my blog. The fine folks at the BeyeNETWORK™ have provided me with this forum to offer opinion and insight into the worlds of telcommunications (telecom) and business activity monitoring (BAM). But as with any blog, I am sure that we (yes we... since blogging is a "team sport"...) will explore other tangents that intersect the concepts of telecom and BAM.

In this world of "Crossfire" intellectual engagement (i.e. I yell louder therefore I win the argument), I will try to offer my opinion in a constructive manner. If I truly dislike a concept, I will do my best to offer an alternative as opposed to simply attempting to prove my point by disproving someone else's. I ask that people who post to this blog follow in my lead.

Let the games begin....

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is one of my all-time favorite movies. One of my favorite quotes is from Ferris' dad:

"You gotta spend money to make money.... ya bone head..."

I basically implied ... err ... said... yelled this at Motorola in September. Today, Motorola released information about their 4th quarter performance. Or should I say lack of performance...

I agree with Colin Barr's opinion about how Carl Icahn might be ready to add Motorola to his collection of investments/targets:

  • BEA Systems... now part of Oracle...
  • Blockbuster
  • Time Warner
  • Medimmune... now part of AstraZeneca

With Google set to enter a handset market that already features Nokia and Apple, perhaps Greg Brown should reconsider spending that research and development dollars before Icahn decides that there's at least a $1 billion in savings to boost the stock price...
