Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

Apple and Google United


So the idea I guess would be that we’d bring Google CEO Eric Schmidt onto the Apple Board for a while; let him learn all about the company; develop a comfort level; and, then at some point Apple becomes the consumer-side of the Google cloud operation.

Mind you… Google’s market cap currently stands at $158 billion. Apple’s is at $105 billion /1 – but is almost for sure going to go up significantly starting in about 8 days from now. /2 For Google to make a run at Apple, what would they do, mortgage AdSense?

The combined company controls search, and the utility computing data centers that Google is still secretly building /3, a virtual supercomputer girding the globe, in effect the world’s most powerful single machine which in ten years will be delivering not just email and word processing but also television programming, movies, games and phone calls. Basically, everything. Cable companies? Phone companies? Our kids won’t know what they were, unless they look them up on, using “GoogleNet”/4.

I say Apple stock hits 160+ after June 29th.

Peace Be To My Brothers and Sisters.


NOTE: My source was not actually (directly) Jobs himself.

1/ This is because I convince all of my friends to buy Apple products.
2/ The iPhone becomes available June 29, 2007 (and, they are as cool as everyone hopes they will be).
3/ This is a rumor.
4/ Just you wait and see.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
