Well, imagine I am somebody at the target market of IBM (whatever that is), why would I want to hire them?
They don't worry about new customers when the largest companies in the world have gone through months or years to get them as preferred tier one vendors.
Sears on the other hand did not serve large Enterprises and were generating revenue mostly from retail. Consumer vs. Enterprise is like Apples and Oranges guys.
I just can't imagine anything we could hire from IBM.
