WE SPENT THE WEEKEND in the Kingdom of Kerry and I could not see the value in reading four Sunday papers when the Dingle peninsula was right outside my window. So I bought the weekend edition of the Financial Times Weekend and shared five minutes of my thoughts through the pink pages while recorded with Qik in the sitting room of Emlagh House in Dingle. There are five main points worth sharing in the FT Weekend.
Mike Southon explores how neuro-linguistic programming fits into brilliant decision making. Jonathan Moules tells the story of Web search entrepreneur Paul Yates who cashed out with £14.2m when he sold his company.
Jonathan Moules writes about identity theft at the company level. It's a tactic used by some Irish druglords.
The Financial Times puts an Apple Fanboi onto its front page, ecstatic with his iPad in London's Regent St. Some of Apple's innovation comes in the manufacturing phase. Foxconn, the world's largest electronics contract manufacturer, makes several major components for Apple. The FT picks up a story with Kathrin Hille writing about "Sharing the Pain" in which she documents the suicide rate at Foxconn.
Kenneth Li's cover story in FT Weekender is how Jeff Bewkes is guiding Time Warner out of the most ruinous merger in US history.
Project Canvas, a joint venture involving the BBC and seven other major players, appears to be delayed. Tim Brdshaw and Andrew Parker write about it in "Television revolution faces dela until 2011".
