Microsoft manna from heaven
: Mark Cuban writes an interesting post (via his pal Jason Calacanis) praising Microsoft for its special dividend and calculating that at $300 per American household, it could have an impact on the economy (if the money doesn’t mostly end up in funds).
Fred Wilson thinks it’s a good move.
Hey, I’ll take the money. But I actually find it depressing that Microsoft could not find aggressive ways to invest and grow that money. It says to me that the era of tech hypergrowth is over. Microsoft is now officially the next IBM. And Google is no Microsoft.
: UPDATE: Fred Wilson responds and reassures.
