Maybe Larry Should Buy Intuit

Unsealed emails provide an incredible look into Larry Ellison’s wildly bad personal money management skills.

When you’re incredibly wealthy, the idea is to make money on interest, not spend it…

For some reason I picture Larry reading these emails on a Sidekick in the backseat of an extra large, black Escalade while making rhymed threats against anyone who tries to mess with his bling.

The emails also offer a unique glance into the personality of the software titan. Read the outtakes and you might have some idea why Oracle seems to have been treading water for several years.

Concentration is important!
