If you saw the Faber report at Power Lunch on Cnbc, you saw a guy in Hindery grossly fumbling with his mouth that he caused shares in Aol, Att,as well as the Nasdaq to slide.

First of all, Hindery, the top guy for T's broadband efforts, call Aol a dinosaur. For one thing you don't use dinosaur and Aol the leading internet company with 20 million customers in the same sentence.

Like to ask you this: do you feel owning a Camry or Accord, American's best selling car, be compared to owning a dinosaur. Sure I would like to be driving around a sleeker, faster car like the Corvette but it cost too much, so I don't mind driving in a dinobox if that what Hindery would call it. But I do recognize like there are many Exotic Car enthisiast there are some hyperactive websurfers who can't live without broadband.

But the billion dollar question is what marketing campaign will T and Athm come up with to make this service compelling for the average family to stiff-arm Aol and reach for broadband? I have seen there commercials and there not that seductive to me, just makes me want to turn the television 100x faster.

I'm not trying to bash this stock because it's the biggest thing in my small portfolio but like the Suretrade guy with the bushy sideburns says ' I'm planning to be rich but before I retire.

This morning we have seen Cisco grossly overspend today for tommorows profits, Att must rid themselves of there old crusty management to move as quickly as there service they provide to capture the internet share. Fool on!!
