huh, i remember reading this a couple weeks ago and seeing the name, but i thought there was no way it would be the same guy.

how do you go from failing at 2 tech companies to piloting a huge hedge fund? makes no sense.

Warren Buffett has beaten hedge funds by investing in a standard index fund for decades.

These douchebags wear fancy suits, slick their hair back, yet can't outperform a dude who drives an ugly, old Cadillac.

Rubinstein just became a qualified douchebag.

From the reporting coming out lately, the only edge hedge funds ever seemed to have, was social connections inside other companies for inside information, so they could do illegal insider trading deals. Good old boys

wait, how does 'stepping down' 'not a good fit' and 'mutual agreement' equate to 'fired'?

if he wasn't fired, isn't that potentially libellous?

LOL so Grubs linked to 10-month-old news and it wasn't even true when he linked it. Only $8,000 for a sponsored post, folks!

@ass look for the unquoted "now" mid-story, and you will realize, you are thick.

@Anonymous®:
Look at the first anonymous. Grubs originally just said "not where I expected him to end up" and later added the Now.

Mac Pro is Dead:
@catfood it did. Only the "just hired" part was mentioned. Wtf. Thought I was going crazy.

Enough Already:
Wow, Gruber really did rewrite this one without an “Update” label. That’s a real departure from his standards.
