  • The suspense is killing me. What did her $980 turtleneck own that her lawyers don't want the jury to hear about?
  • The book about her was quite fascinating.  I applaud the entrepreneurial spirit which says "we don't know how to do do this yet, but by gum, we're going to figure it out", however there is a big difference between a phone app or website that fails and actual medical testing when peoples lives are at stake. She was rolling the dice with real people, then covering it up. I hope she rots in jail.
  • I wish I didn't know about her farking turtleneck fetish either. But here we are.
  • Who cares?  She's a successful, funny actress and can wear what she wants.  She's earned it.  I had NO idea she was Effie Trinket, until I saw the credits.
  • We need to encourage dumb people spending their money on useless shiat. It helps keep the economy moving while I hunker in my bunker making my own booze in my basement.
  • Lots of carnage from this debacle. Several retailer spent a metric shiat ton of money preparing to offer Theranos testing.
  • Let's see, is she accused of fraud? Yes.
    Did she pay herself a crazy high paycheck using that fraud? Yes.
    Does this go to showing motive? Yes.

    Then it's probably relevant to the case.

    I highly recommend watching the HBO documentary. Especially enjoyed the wise old Stanford professor who knew she was full of shiat from the git go. The amazing part of the story is just how far they got before things fell apart. Venture capitalist are generally pretty good about sniffing out dog shiat investments. Thernos, thanks to Blondy, was a huge exception.

    The VCs were idiots.  How about, " here's small samples from a rack of conventionally tested blood samples...now in person, show the sample going into the machine and results coming out real time. Until then, F off." .

    But no...men + blonde woman == take my money

    The "partnering" institutions w/Theranos were also aware it was BS before stuff came down but were repeatedly told the results were held up by equipment issues or manufacturing glitches and would they hold on please.  I think there were also $ passed there too but not a lot.
  • I have a coworker with that exact same name. The coworker is much, much dumber.

    \and several orders of magnitude uglier
    \\physically and mentally about as swift as cold molasses
  • She stole from rich people.  She's farked.  She should have founded a title loan company.  Nobody cares if you steal from poor people.
  • God cnbc sucks. This article makes it sound like she's being investigated for paying her assistants to do her shopping.

    "Move fast and break stuff" isn't really a great approach to medical technology

    Note that the wise old professor was a woman, and the one who quit his tenured position to join her company was a man.  And hero board was literally a who's who of the old white men who ran the military industrial complex including Sec.Mattis, and Henry farking Kissinger

    You fail to take into account the she was a moderately attractive blonde with a fake deep voice, and VC's are mostly horny old men.
  • Nonpo: This article makes it sound like she's being investigated for paying her assistants to do her shopping.


    That was one of my takeaways too. Lots  of execs have personal assistants to run errands for them. It's more efficient for the company than having your decision maker picking up dry cleaning.

    The HBO movie was fascinating.

    Wait... people liked her voice? It's positively grating. If I were a VC, I could see myself specifically not funding her because I didn't want to listen to her anymore.
  • Well, you see, it's 98 times better than a $10 sweater.

    "Roll the dice"
    She knew that the tests didn't work.  Her staff fabricated data, the marketing staff sold it.  What is worse is that congress deregulated medical diagnostics in the US, so all of that was perfectly legal.  What got her in the end was lie to the wealthy about the companies worth.
    Medical diagnostics are still deregulated today, it's insane.

    She is being tried for defrauding investors.  Misusing company money/personnel/resources is fraudulent use of investors' money.

    Depends on what her contract says, but I suspect that it would be common for a multi-billion-corporation CEO to have a provision in there that the company provides assistants to do personal errands. Perks.

    The HBO doc was really well done and so was the ABC News podcast. However the book really lays all of the details out there and the whole story is even more rage inducing after reading it.

    Also, many technical men called her on her bullshiat, but were then blasted for being sexist.  it was used as a cover.
