Google and Greyhound

12:00 PM

GOOG 647

I may be an apprentice investor, but I know something about software. That's why I own as much Google as I can stand.

Check this out:

There are only so many ways that things can be configured. In 1995, Larry DeBoever was pointing out in private seminars where all the PC madness would end up - back at the mainframe.

My takeaway is that, with a hundred years of hindsight, we can see that the personal automobile was a mistake. It has led us down the path to your friendly auto mechanic, highway fatalities, dependence on foreign oil, pollution and global warming. All so we can pick up our kids at school every day.

The Personal Computer is also a mistake. It has given us the Geek Squad, personal head crashes, spam, porn in your home, identity theft and global warming.

But we will not make the same mistake twice. Google will show us the way.

Then they can fix the car thing.
