David, Excellent insights. IBM did indeed become the "computerless computer company" while DEC disappeared into oblivion. We have seen the "Fab less chip company" that designs chips and licenses the technology but doesn't produce chips. Perhaps software is next. Perhaps it has already happened in the sense that shrink wrapped software is pretty rare these days.

Software is increasingly delivered as a Service. is the usual example. I consider Google to be a software company since most of their employees are software engineers...but they don't sell software. An example of the "softwareless software company"?

This is a great topic. You have inspired me to write a blog on this . I will of course link back to you as the source.

Lawmakers began returning to the Capitol to tackle legislation on jobs and federal deficits in an unforgiving political season spiced by the 2012 presidential campaign.Adding to the mix: A bipartisan congressional committee is slated to hold its first public meeting on Thursday as it embarks on a quest for deficit cuts of $1.2 trillion or more over a decade. If there is no agreement, automatic spending cuts will take effect, a prospect that lawmakers in both parties have said they would like to avoid.According to people familiar with the White House deliberations, two of the biggest measures in the president's proposals for 2012 are expected to be a one-year extension of a payroll tax cut for workers and an extension of expiring jobless benefits. Together those two would total about $170 billion.
