NetApp Rules

Hey Chuck,

If EMC is doing so well then why did you guys resort to highschool level misdemeanor behavior by vandalizing NetApps campus with spray painted stencils and driving your EMC branded coopers around with we are hiring signs on top of them. This incident only shows what a bunch of clowns you guys are. I sincerely hope whoever was behind this loses their job.

Some day soon you will officially known as #2 in the storage business.

You -- and your brethren -- need to lighten up a little.

We just finished a record-breaking industry announcement in terms of products. We also decided to have some fun in the process -- stuffing a Mini, motorcycle jumps, etc. And a small bit of that fun involved one of our smaller competitors.

So, back to work now. It should be a great 2011!
