For a high-tech semi company to survive it really need an professional to be the leader, otherwise it's too hard to tell all this' promising' techs which is shit which one is pie.

good luck ibm , but i don't believe it's current female saleman ceo will be able to save it.

Larry, I think what they are saying is that if they can't get it done by 2020 it will be too late and they'll move on to greener pastures.

IBM also made an ambitious 5-year business plan in 2010 that their employees at this point refer to as "Roadkill 2015". I certainly applaud them for thinking beyond the next quarter's reports, but it seems like there has to be allowance to make midcourse corrections. There are significant technical challenges listed here, and I would bet that there are others of which they are not yet aware. Is this arrogance or confidence in technical prowess? Is there a difference?
