I don’t know what problem people have with Facebook shares going down a bit. Have they really expected it to remain at a Price/Earnings ratio of 70 when all other technology companies are around 15?

BBspot – SCO Must Prove Existence of Santa Claus in Thirty Days

BBspot has a funny post starting like this:

SCO, formerly known as Santa Cruz Operations, recently changed their name to Santa Claus Operations…
