The Cure For The BYOD Blues?

The Cure For The BYOD Blues? Just under 15,000.  That’s the number of miles United Airlines tells me I have traveled in the last 2 1/2 weeks.  Not the best excuse, but really the only one I have for not having shared any missives with you on a regular basis during this time period.  Miracle of miracles, I am not traveling [...]

The company’s stock has fallen dramatically (it was around 145 only a little more than a year [...]
