Microsoft kauft LinkedIn für 26 Millarden Dollar

linkedIch vergesse immer, dass ich ein LinkedIn habe, weil ich deren Nervmails filtere. Wenn ich mich daran erinnere, dass ich ein LinkedIn habe, erinnere ich mich gleichzeitig auch daran, dass ich ein Xing hab’, was ich ebenfalls vergessen hatte, da ich deren Nervmails wegfiltere. Ich bin ein sehr professioneller „Internet-Professional“.

Microsoft hat den Laden jetzt für stattliche 26 Millarden gekauft, was ich wahrscheinlich morgen, wenn dieses Posting von der Startseite verschwindet, wieder vergessen werde. Willkommener Anlass für ein bisschen Carlin:

Everybody knows by now, all businessmen are completely full of shit; just the worst kind of low-life, criminal, cocksuckers you could ever wanna' run into – a fuckin' piece of shit businessman. And the proof of it, the proof of it is, they don't even trust each other. They don't trust one another. When a business man sits down to negotiate a deal, the first thing he does is to automatically assume that the other guy is a complete lying prick who's trying to fuck him outta his money. So he's gotta do everything he can to fuck the other guy a little bit faster and a little bit harder. And he's gotta do it with a big smile on his face. You know that big, bullshit businessman smile? And if you're a customer – Whoah! – that's when you get the really big smile. Customer always gets that really big smile, as the businessman carefully positions himself directly behind the customer, and unzips his pants, and proceeds to service...the...account.
