MIT Sloan's Catherine Tucker has an article on the CNN/Fortune/Money site: "I see these deals as a reflection of the uncertainty companies face as they try to identify the next big thing. "

 Strategic Marketing for the Technical Executive (http://executive.mit.edu/mkt)
 Systematic Innovation of Products, Processes, and Services (http://executive.mit.edu/ipp)
