Ps-s-t. Wanna Buy Some Pillar Data?

by Robin Harris on Wednesday, 7 June, 2006

Want to see the Pillar Data price list? You’ve come to the right place. You know, the startup Larry Ellison spent $150 million on, peering deep into his rearview mirror.

Weirdest thing about the price list: all the little under $5 pieces. Yo, Larry, this is hardware! It’s cheaper just to throw them in the box than to spend a couple of hundred dollars processing an order. Lose ’em!

Seriously, did you know that Walter P. Chrysler, a top factory manager for GM, was the last man to start a successful automobile company in the U.S.? That was in the early 1920’s.

Larry, meet Walter. Walter meet . . . where’d he go?
