Larry Ellison's exit as Oracle CEO signals Silicon Valley shift - SFGate
"Larry Ellison stepped down as CEO of @Oracle partly to reward the new co-CEOs, Mark Hurd & Safra Katz, @Recode reports; the move was also done to set Oracle 'on a course for long-term stability' by keeping Hurd & Katz, who have reportedly both been approached about jobs outside of Oracle, w/ the company." +!+!+ ‏@Benioff "There always has been, & always will be, one ceo at Oracle. "All sw & hw engineering functions will continue to report to @larryellison." + nobody can take away the leadership and founder title. + + and he is 70 already, so he basically is just weaning himself off day-to-day operations. +!+!+ 'but is the Co-CEO move actually sensible considering the whole picture of Oracle?' - +

VC Stewart Alsop: How I pissed off Steve Jobs - YouTube
Steve Job's last big gig was designing and figuring out the Apple TV, where TV is an app and the Device, what is known as TV is a super-size iMac. A Personal Computer. Plus they probably will make the iPad and Apple TV / iTV connect to each other so you can use the iPas and iPhone as 2nd Screen and do social media and surfing and sharing while watching TV. // Google acquisition of Nest Lab is also talent acquisition - Tony Fadell - a former Apple Execs. But he is a Product Guy and those are valuable, and Apple competed with Google for Nest Labs and thus Tony Fadell. Larry Page needs Fadell to improve Google's product line and future products and teach other Googlers 'product development, management and how to think about it correctly.' >> Android, Nexus, Google Chrome, Google Glasses, Google Car, Google ChromeCast. The big things that bring in the money. // // bn dollar companies have an asshole at their helm, that one that steps on people to get his way, get things done, rolling.

Staatsanwaltschaft erließ Haftbefehl gegen Hoeneß - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Am Dienstagabend meldete sich am Rande seines Saarland-Besuchs auch Joachim Gauck zu den Vorwürfen gegen Hoeneß zu Wort: Gegenüber dem Saarländischen Rundfunk sagte der Bundespräsident, er werde "keine moralische Verurteilung vornehmen." Sein Interesse sei vielmehr, "dass wir aus solchen Fällen lernen und begreifen: Zu einer funktionierenden Demokratie gehört die Bereitschaft aller, etwas dazu beizutragen. Wir können nicht wählen, ob wir Steuern zahlen, jedenfalls nicht legal." Es gehöre "zur Verantwortung eines mündigen Bürgers, Pflichten zu akzeptieren", so Gauck weiter. "Es gehört zu einer gewachsenen Bürgerkultur, dass wir uns mitverantwortlich fühlen. Dieses Element der Mitverantwortung sollte jeder im Kopf haben, der manchmal über zu hohe Steuern stöhnt." Gauck äußerte sich auch zur Vorbildfunktion von Uli Hoeneß und sagte, Menschen seien nicht fehlerfrei, aber bei Personen, die im Fokus stünden, fielen "Fehler ganz besonders auf". Gauck fügte hinzu: "Wenn Vorbilder ihren Vorbi

The Importance of Benevolent Dictators
I believe that groups coming together to make tough decisions driven by consensus tend to make poor decisions. [...] It’s hard being a leader. By definition leaders make hard choices given incomplete information. And by tough decisions I mean it is clear that some people’s views will end up on one side of the fence and others will end up on the other side. But you need conviction. [...] Leaders need to be respected, not loved. [...] Decision makers. Visionaries. Leaders. Chart their own course against the constant chorus of second guessers. [...] Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that you should make decisions without other people’s input. My motto is “always triangulate.” >>
