  1. A company not doing so well is always a candidate for take over…that scares me. Some times I wonder if the final destination for all free markets is a Monopoly :|

    In case of the Internet, though, I am not sure that’s true.

  2. I saw this amazing local news bit in LA over the holidays about how the Blue Ray/HDTV competition was hurting consumers because they didn’t know which one was going to “win out” and so the best thing would be for the studios to all get together and pick one. And that is the meaning of capitalism. It was amazing.
