SPOTLIGHT: Motorola exec's"speaking gaffe" draws laughs


The Wall Street Journal has an interesting piece on a recent talk by Motorola's handset chief Ron Garriques. Garriques made some "oratorical errors" to put it much too lightly. The article ends with: "The audience had earlier laughed uncomfortably when Mr. Garriques was describing Motorola's red cellphones, a portion of whose profits are donated to help fight AIDS in Africa. Customers who are alive, he explained, 'can be future customers.'" Oof. Article (sub. req.)
