Goldman Sachs President Gary Cohn Likes To Speak To Employees On A Grundle-To-Face Basis

Cohn, 6-foot-3 and 220 pounds, can be intimidating, two former colleagues said. He would sometimes hike up one leg, plant his foot on a trader’s desk, his thigh close to the employee’s face, and ask how markets were doing, they said. [Bloomberg, earlier]

    Lynn Tilton, in 5-inch heels Cavalli mini and fur-trimmed cape, can also be intimidating, according to former colleagues. u00a0After downing a cocktail of clay, salt and chlorophyll, she was known to sit directly across from traders, ankle over knee or with the soles of her feet pressed together behind her head, doing obscene things with a pair of ivory-handled Hashemite daggers while asking recondite questions about markets and “inner truth.” u00a0

    I hear this is the real reason that Matt left the Squid. A thigh that close to your face is really intimidating.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
