that might play as much to the fact that a lot of people by iphones and ipads as much as it does to fewer people buying pc's. global pc shipments fell 10% last year. that is one reason why lenovo decided to buy the ibm server unit to expand into other businesses. >> from a commercial perspective, we are number one in commercial. a lot of our customers have asked us to expand our portfolio. this gives the customers we are targeting the opportunity to have a bigger portfolio. >> no string to the shifting computer market. he just took his company private to get away from the scrutinizing eye of the

well. >> this is the most damaging financial crisis since the depression and maybe before that. with all the home foreclosures, bank failures, and the impact it had on the global economy, it was devastating. it will take a long time to recover their trust. it is not surprising. >> it is a slow recovery. consumption is in low gear. it would be hard to expect this recovery to look like any other. it will be more slow. >> the purpose of a financial institution is to help customers and clients live their lives. we have done everything we can to narrow the framework of the business. as we continue the compliance and risk infrastructure we have been building on, a think you will not find those things repeat. we are still in the process of cleaning it up.

-- did you know there was a different met romney out there that you might have been afraid of had he been able to committee k to the public that personality? >> i think it was his positions that cost him the presidency and middle-class voters thought president obama was more in line with their thinking. you are in a political war fighting to the death to win. you have respect for the other side because a presidential campaign is a grueling thing. that moment you just showed is what you driven a campaign, calling your opponent to concede. you got to tip your hat to him because you know what they went through. there are obstacle courses and you feel for them because these are tough things, tough on your family. i will watch it with great interest. i doubt there will be a mitt '16 bandwagon. >> the 20 16th republican contenders were handicapped and

michael crabtree. >> [inaudible] that's the result you're going to get. don't you ever talk about me. >> how is this being received and will it impact the potential sponsorships? we asked his marketing manager. >> the perception immediately following the game was that there is was a bad -- there was a lot of outcry from the public. people have to understand the switch that it takes a lot of these players to play at such a high level. it is a championship level to put your team the super bowl is not something that is a late blips on and off. there is a reason why the league usually has a 15-30 minute cool off. before there is an immediate interview. when you look at the timeline -- if crabtree does not shove him in the face, do we get that reaction? that set him off more. it led to emotions taking over. >> how do you market an athlete in the middle of a storm like this? >> we have been telling that story all season long. you look at richard's body of work -- >> it is a great success story? >> it's amazing what he has been able to a compass from a diversity standpoint. you look at some of the greatest athletes to play this game like

>> hbo and amc are changing the way we watch stuff with interviewing and stories told over eight one-hour episodes. >> enacting terms it is fantastic because you get to take a character and go on this enormous journey with them. in movies, you have a short. of time to tell a story. you have very stereotypical characters like good guys and bad guys and love interest where in this come you can tell these incredibly complex stories through complex characters. >> know when is a hero and no one is a villain, everyone is in a gray area. you quite often fall in love of the character and you realize they have to be despicable to
survive. it's an interesting story and i think it will challenge viewers. >> you will be able to watch this andstarz is announcing lebron james and curtis jackson. s here is thetarz ceo >> on the collaboration. >>it was an idea of his that he developed. he developed it with an african woman writer, the first black female writer for mainstream television that came with a great idea. we have been edited and something in that world but it is a universal story in the sense that it is about be careful what you wish for, you create a life for yourself and you get what you think what you want and you realize it is not what you want and you try to re- create yourself as something else and it's not so easy. the people you think of the right ones for you to be totally the wrong ones for you. it is a starcrossed love story. there is a lot of action. >> what about lebron james getting into comedy? you guys are working on a show. >> he partnered himself with some pretty impressive people. i thought i was not that interested in comedy but i would
sit down and made this guy. i listen to the idea and i thought we will do this. we developed it and it's based on -- loosely based on their own experience of coming out of the neighborhood -- the projects -- and finding success and at the same time feeling like you want to give back and having a lot of people who are trying to come along and hitch themselves to your wagon. yet, realizing your worst nightmare is to find yourself falling back there and knowing you have to protect your future. >> if you're not going to watch frankenstein or black sails, at least you got the super bowl coming up. at least one point 25 billion chicken wings -- 1.20 5 billion chicken wings will be consumed super bowl weekend.

still in control. >> you think this is more about still digesting the fed taper. >> you're pointing to emerging markets. there are a lot of nonperforming loans. a lot of inflation. a lot of political stability. people last year made a lot of money in the stock market. their thinking maybe i should have a look at the environment. i am not in favor of calling today a panic. there's a lot of discriminate selling. more lower. you're looking into the weekends. opportunity,uying the pullback they had been waiting for? >> a lot of this is noise. the more global and thematic
issues tend to end in pricing issues that we can take advantage of. isarly next week's statement the big girl in the room. taper and more selloff. is that what you are looking for? >> if you are in the bond market, we have not seen that the end of last year. i think i would be pretty nervous about holding onto rates. heading into the smo see meeting -- fomc meeting. ♪
