What would we do without Gary and Resourceshelf? Well, we’d be dumb about domains, for one. He’s got new domains registered by Google and Microsoft. Runes, they are, runes.

  2. If it’s a hypervisor, I hope they’re buying up Emagine. I’ve been watching this company for a long time waiting for it to break. Their tech is great, they have the best oled products out there. Someone needs to snatch them up.
