But is that greed or is it simply incompetence. One could argue that the leaders of many technology companies do not know the inner workings of some of there products and therefore don't know the potential risks of those products failing. Would those same technology CEOs be called "greedy" because they touted products that ended up failing? My guess is that they would simply be referred to as incompetent. Either way, investors must move on. Interesting point.
