Ouch. I cry when I send out a $360 order to a con artist in Vietnam.  Can't imagine a $100 million mistake...

I think you have very valid point in relating this to Logitech's hesitance to enter the Mechanical Keyboard market.  They've got cold feet. 2013 could be the foot warmer though ;)

And you still have your job -- which is more than former Logitech CEO Guerrino De Luca can say, since he lost his over this mistake.

2013 could be worse.  Germany is sinking the European economy, which is one of Logitech's major markets.  2013 could be very ugly indeed.

Don't such executives who screw up and lose their jobs also typically take millions with them out the door?

Forgive me if I don't cry for them. Maybe I'm jealous of these golden parachutes but just seems wrong.

Matias:
Don't know if that happened in this case.

The tides seem to be slowly turning on those sorts of deals.
