Why did we hire an acquisitions specialist? Just to drive people nuts.

Seriously. See this story about us hiring some big honcho lawyer from HP who oversaw the HP-Compaq merger and now everyone is trying to figure out if we’re going on some big spending spree with our $18 billion in cash and if so who are we gonna buy? Which is exactly what we figured would happen which is exactly why we did it. Because come on. Let’s be honest. What’s it cost us to hire some lawyer? Peanuts in the bigger scheme of things. Totally worth it from a PR perspective and just as a way to freak people out. And who knows? Maybe we’ll buy someone big. I doubt it, but you never know.
