Just look at the types who develop and embrace Quicken, Forbes, The Street,
Financial Times, etc. They perceive technology as stocks and their
accompanying financial value (I see this every day as I browse through many
dozens of financial articles). They could not care less about innovation,
technical merits (including efficiency), fare/balanced market... in fact,
this whole thing reminds me of people who, much like a certain president,
talk about "The Google" and "The Internets".
Perspective matters. A lot.
~~ Kind greetings and happy holidays!
