Soros, Buffett and Trichet said It Ain’t Over Yet

Oil prices going for $130 a barrel – FinanceTwitter screamed back in early Mar 2008, slightly more than two months ago when the black gold was traded at $102 a barrel.

Microsoft, Yahoo and Facebook’s Threesome vs Google

Have you ever had a threesome before? The saying goes that you should never have a threesome with someone that you wish to keep. If you think Microsoft Corp would leave Yahoo Inc. alone and let Google Inc. continues to dominate the lucrative online advertising, think again. It appears Microsoft might launch a threesome act […]

Mahathir quits UMNO, so what? It’s Lingam-Gate diversion

Almost all the local news media be it government-controlled electronic or print media and bloggers screamed “Mahathir quits UMNO”. Should this former prime minister and dictator’s decision be given such a coverage? Perhaps his decision to quit was the hottest news so far hence the front-page privilege. Seriously I would only be surprise if he […]

Does Anwar has all the missing pieces to create history?

Ever since the arrogant National Front lost its precious two-third majority in the Parliament, life was never the same again. Life is now full of entertainment. If you’re one of the Formula-1 fans, you should understand what I’m talking about. It was so freaking boring when even a schoolboy could predict with utmost accuracy that […]

HP to pay $13 billion for EDS?

Carly Fiorina, the former chairman and chief executive officer of Hewlett-Packard, served at HP from 1999 and 2005. She could easily be the most hated boss during the period; at least within Malaysia territory.

Do you really need to buy YAHOO stock now?

Since Microsoft walked away from Yahoo, either deliberately or otherwise, many investors were arguing whether they should buy the stock in anticipation of another round of acquisition talk – by the same acquirer Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT, stock). The argument was pretty simple and easy – the bald-headed Balmer was playing hide and seek with […]
