Thanks for straightening me out.

Re: Efficient Markets Hypothesis

The efficient markets hypothesis is a difficult concept to understand... Not really if you think of "markets" as just people (and sometimes algorithms which are created by people).

Re: Nero: Why Apple Will Prevail

His original OS that he paid another developer for was a copy of another OS system. Vercingetorix, The implication is always that MS-DOS was copied from CP/M, but that rumor has been thoroughly debunked.
