9781425980788: Pushing The Envelope

Witness how the computer industry will likely evolve as a Stanford graduate becomes involved in the fast-paced world of corporate mergers, computer hackers, and the globalization of his father's successful Microsoft-esque conglomerate, Maxion, in this methodical social commentary about the present and near future. The protagonist, Joe Sedulus, is quickly thrown into a position of extreme power and draws upon several new and innovative synergies that drive Maxion to the brink of world domination. Readers get a glimpse of what the consumer electronics market could offer just a few years from now. Pushing the Envelope concludes with an assassination attempt and the largest antitrust case in the history of mankind.

Book Description AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.When Joseph Sedulus, son of a Bill Gates figure, enters graduate school at Stanford University, his father introduces him to a dark corrupt underground society. Comprised of extremely wealthy investors called The Elite and professional hackers known as The Guys Upstairs, this secretive organization works in concert to control the world s financial and political destinies. This journal-formatted collection of ideas is a contemporary-fiction book that depicts a world in which a massive mega corporation called Maxion, often referred to as M$, gradually takes over the globe through a series of large business mergers. Joe s father, Dr. Sedulus, is the CEO of Maxion as well as richest man on earth. There are several blatant similarities between M$, the company in Pushing the Envelope, and Microsoft. This same mechanic is applied to other entities throughout the novel to give it a very realistic perception. For example, Wally World and Maxion join in the middle of the book to create Maxion Online, a massive distribution and telecommunications conglomerate. In a few short years, M$ releases several popular devices such as the WebTVo+, SmartScreen, and Model C#. Joe discusses how these technologies and globalization come together to redefine the world economy using a technique called Monopolistic Socialism. The repercussion of Maxion s success leads to a jealous Elite who eventually setup a coup to take down the Sedulus Empire. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781425980788
