Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Watson?
Not really very popular.

Let's review the facts.

16 straight quarters of declining revenue.

A CEO who just got a $4.5M bonus for this.

A product no-one wants, and a raft of other products that are just crap.

IBM is doomed. It's just taking a long time to die, because inertia.
New Cringely's record lately wrt IBM hasn't been too good. 110k layoffs in 2015?
New But I really like his attempt at nicknaming Mz Rometty "Ginni the Eagle".
From http://www.cringely.com/2016/03/22/ginni-the-eagle-ibms-corporate-transformation/ , just below the second "corporate life cycle" graph.

Dunno if anyone besides PW gets the reference, though?
