Oracle's Strategery


Watching Oracle’s cloud strategy roll out has given me renewed respect for its approach to the market. As a company that has been public for a long time, Oracle has displayed all the warmth of an anaconda. I have friends there, and they are not anacondas, but I hope they know what I mean. Oracle knows its business and it’s making money, and it does it unabashedly, so I can understand criticisms of its pricing model or high maintenance fees. However, another side of the business is coming into sharp focus as the cloud rollout gains momentum.

Tech Billionaire Thiel Aims to Justify His Trump Support


Peter Thiel, one of the few well-known Silicon Valley figures who has given Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump a public endorsement, on Monday reiterated his support at a National Press Club event in Washington. He prefaced his remarks with a disclaimer. “Nobody thinks his comments about women were acceptable,” Thiel told the gathering, referring to Trump. “I agree, they were clearly offensive and inappropriate.” However, a vote for Trump would not constitute an endorsement of his flaws or lack of judgment, Thiel argued.
