Boost IT visibility and business value

From: Jim Fisher Sent: 02 November 1999 04:39 Subject: Your Stories... lack originality Hi Register Editors, I used to visit The Register because it often had up to the minute news in an industry I like to toy in. However, your story on Guillemot buying Hercules is an example of the petty thinking that is emerging from The Register. Your opinions are being reported alongside facts. How do you know that the Hercules name can Not be rejuvenated... do you think that that hasn't happened before? There are many products in the US where this has happened... a once defunct product comes back to life... it happens often. I'm also offended by your daily attack on Microsoft. For over six months you've done nothing to present a side of Microsoft that is even noteworthy or interesting. Where do you get off attacking the single company to make PC's mainstream in ALL of Society. You think that is funny... I think you're funny... NOT! Your staff is immature, your articles reflect this and I no longer consider the Register as a "must" visit site. Excuse me for looking else where. James D. Fisher, Chemistry Department, University of Florida Email reproduced in full and unedited. Email address supplied. Want your say? Visit The Register's forum and toss your orb in public.
