1 11 16 STI-1

Whenever a CEO takes the stage at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, we investors expect them to reveal something meaningful... innovative... in a word - big.

If she listens, my plan will rescue IBM by making it the undisputed leader in one of the fastest-growing sectors of the market.
