PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Motorola split into two groups today in order to save their falling mobile business, but the real kicker is an insider's email that Engadget published. It has it all, from suicides to golf scores and how all that brought a giant down. Good afternoon reading, albeit sad. Update: My personal rant/editorial on the situation, describing the failure of Motorola to understand the importance of their EZX Linux-based phones and how this drove their business down.

I don't think etrade has as much to do with it.
The small time investor doesn't affect company policy or even demand growth...they're nothing...just playing the stock.


Most companies are still owned by large institutional investors (moto was almost 80% ins owned at last check).

The second part of what you say is true. Few people 'invest' for long term company growth. Even for startups this is true. The executives are just there to build something until they can IPO or sell it asap and 'dump' the future of the company on someone else.
