It’s a phone…. you use it to call people!??

Back in the day, we used our phones as phones.

These days I use mine more for checking spending trends, listening to music.

Using a phone to phone people?? What a quaint idea.

Nah it will never catch on…..

Before the pandemic was ever a thought in our News anchor’s list of headlines…there was a really surprisingly heated argument between two majorly influential investors; Bill Ackman of Pershing Square and Carl Ichan.

Bill Ackman was featured in a documentary about his attempt to publicly shame Herbalife for its multi-level marketing pyramid scheme.

Meanwhile Carl Icahn was incensed by this younger man’s insistence to damage a business he had multiple investments in. And also… they just don’t see eye to eye on anything…even a business deal they had … and Carl would swear on the Bible that Ackman had a verbal agreement with him that he then broke, when there was a complication in the shortfall of the anticipated gains on their joint venture.

Ackman and Icahn, a longtime friend of President Donald Trump, buried the hatchet in 2014. With a 26% stake, Carl Icahn remains Herbalife’s largest shareholder. According to TheStreet, Icahn has made almost $1 billion profit from his investment. Meanwhile, Ackman has lost close to $1 billion on Herbalife.

And it just gets worse….’they hate the day they ever met each other’.
