I like to think I'm a pretty clever guy, but I must admit I'm confused about the interest in whose browser has the most market share.
Market share is important when you're actually selling something and actually deriving some income to compensate for your expenses. I can't recall the last time I paid for a Web browser or any software plug-in to make the browser provide more functionality. My allegiance to any browser has brought that company zero revenue.
So, what's the big deal on market share?

Bravo! It's about time someone exposed this trite expression for what it is--another poor excuse for not providing real results ("Business Savvy Is Key To IT Success," Jan. 3).

Words To Live By
I read Herbert W. Lovelace's Secret CIO article "Live Your Dream: This Year, Become CIO" a year ago and have read it weekly ever since (Jan. 26, 2004). I've wanted to become the CIO of a major company since I began at Michigan State University almost five years ago. I'm getting a degree in management and one in telecommunications along with a specialization in information-technology management.
I'm just writing to thank you for your article as it continues to motivate me to achieve my goal of one day becoming a CIO. I try to apply some of the recommendations in all of my leadership and professional positions.
