Land of the giants


One of the best quotes I read this weekend on the Yahoo/Microsoft takeover was the following from Scott Rosenberg, Head of Miro Consulting, who says

'These big takeovers (AOL/Time Warner) are always about failure in the present and fear of the future. And they nearly always end badly'.

As someone who was on the receiving end of the AOL/Time Warner 'merger' I couldn't agree more!

Rate cuts


With the .25% rate cut announced yesterday a large percentage of the UK will issue a sigh of relief (even if they are on fixed rates at present) that mortgage rates seem to be heading in the right direction as the majority of lenders pass this saving on.

....but what's this, Northern Rock isn't joining in?

I’m off to see what its customers are saying online…should be entertaining.

Egg on their face?


If you believe Egg or not (that it was risk reviewing its customer base) the power of the internet has blown some massive holes in their statement concerning dropping 160,000 customers.

Various forums and message boards have reported a variety of customers with 'excellent' credit ratings being dropped along with those who have high levels of debt.

One of these customers just happens to be a lib dem councillor - tough break for Egg!
