Seagate’s CEO: I help people “watch porn”

I like Bill Watkins, CEO of Seagate. Not just cause he sponsored my show for the first three months. But because he says outrageous things. To Fortune magazine.

Heheh, that brings to mind this video: The Internet is for porn. It’s actually not porn at all. And it’s on Google video.

You can watch an interview I did with Bill too a few weeks back. Yes, he is an interesting interviewee.

Oh, and I hear that if you’re a blogger, you’ll get to meet Bill at CES in our BlogHaus, which is sponsored by Seagate, Microsoft, and AMD. More on that soon.

  1. Perhaps Bill Watkins can help people extinguish the inevitable Dell laptop fires that all that porn will lead to. Possibly by following these simply safety tips…

    (language probably NSFW, but not porn either…)

  3. I don’t think this is outrageous; I *do* think it’s candid and “telling it as it is” without having to pugnaciously prognosticate that.

    Wish more people would just say stuff like this without fear of being “unprofessional”.

    GREAT quote, great highlight, Scoble!

  5. […] But this reporter is on a story down in Antarctica! Now that must be cold! What needs to be done for the Zune to have a chance. This Linux distro is down with multimedia. Some pancakes worthy of your driver’s license. Seagates CEO works to help you get dirty movies. Microsoft is going to try to conquer your living room with Vista! That is what we need, a BSOD on our big HDTV! Can the RIAA call your boss? If you watch some vids, get Vista! Duct-tape can fix anything. Super tiny Linux system. […]
