Top three mobile application threats

A source formerly extremely close to Compaq said last night that John Rose, ousted from Compaq shortly after Eckhard Pfeiffer was outside, had persuaded the Great Satan of Haircuts to buy Digital. And it was a huge mistake, apparently. The mistake was so big that many thousands of individuals in Compaq Europe could possibly lose their jobs in the next six months, said the source formerly intimate with Compaq. Apparently, this is what happened. John Rose persuaded and reminded Eckhard Pfeiffer of his egregious plan to become a $100 billion corporation by the end of the century. Eck demurred, but Rose persuaded him. And so the deal was done. And, according to the former-employee-of-Compaq, that recruited many so-called Alpha employees, described by the man as "the enemy within". The Alpha evangelists got the ear of the CEO, explained our mole. We will be listening in to the Compaq conference call where Capella explains all. ®
