Well I got that wrong.

It appears that crime, and being a lying sleazebag (see why he was fired from HP), does pay after all.

He knows nothing about tech... nothing. He was recently talking about how Oracle's small cloud outfit did not need as many regional data centers as AWS, Google Cloud and Azure... because his data centers have Exadatas. Totally not understanding the concept of network latency.

You don't even need to know anything about computing to understand that... you just need to know that when you send a letter in the mail from New York to London, it takes longer than when you send a letter from London to London. Larry Ellison has to be embarrassed by that sort of thing as Larry does know his tech.

As an ex HP employee....

... I am delighted for him.

After all that massive 5% salary cut that he took in solidarity with the workers demonstrated what a truly caring, role model of a boss he was.

What's that? He didn't apply the cut to his bonuses you say? I'm shocked.

or 4 Magnums with added Polonium for some extra bite?

Bitter? well all the people ejected from HP under his watch are still just that. I was let go earlier on mutual agreed terms but later on it got very messy with whole very profitable teams just told to go on gardening leave.

All a trial run for Meg though.

Those two have a lot to answer for.

WTF?

"....five-bed, eight-bath condo...." Whaaaaaat?!? One for each day of the week and a second bath every Sunday? Does she have a serious water fetish?

Re: WTF?

A private bath per bedroom for occupants and house guests, plus a couple more for visitors' use to let the residents keep theirs private. It does allow the Loo O' The Day trick though.
