I'm happy I'm on this forum, but I HATE reading how ignorant every comment on the first 3 pages of EVERY news story is. I might as well just start skipping to the 4th page if I want to see any kind of meaningful opinions, because the first pages are always
At least I see a couple of decent comments on the second page. Maybe OCN is getting better?
Zero actual attempt to do a simple google search? No thought what-so-ever to see what kind of education he has or investment portfolio? Nice addition to the conversation man.
??? He dropped out of college to be a model and what are you talking about investments? Obviously, I meant a portfolio of design works, since this is a design job.
You.. you don't work in the design field do you? For that matter, you have never had a say in hiring someone have you? Honestly, education is just a piece of paper, with little value. When taking classes, any good teacher will tell you that it means jack-squat. His investments show he knows what works, what is good and bad. The fact that he bought in on so many start up companies that became HUGE successes (Skype) shows he KNOWS what does and doesn't work. This alone shows he knows what he is doing wen it comes to what people want. Him laying down 50k-100k per investment of his own money, so sure that a small start-up will make it large, and being right about it almost completely reliably... Yeah, anyone could do that.
We have no idea what is artistic portfolio looks like, because he isn't trying to get a job with us is he? He is trying to get a job with a company that he cares about, one that many of us love. Lenovo is one of the good tech companies. The man has many of the same interests as us, but is MUCH harder-working that most of us. (Don't even argue about it, Getting where he is at takes more than most of us have in us)
I really don't understand why people are so upset about what ONE designer's history is. He is not going to be the head designer, he will just have a say in it. (better than having the eggheads in charge)
You people act like the say one ONE designer will change the entire company. I barely understand why this is news quite frankly, now if he saved a drowning company with his amazing ideas (don't think that is going to happen) then maybe, but really, it is like reading an article about some game company hiring some guy who worked on a movie... It doesn't mean crap.
