This is an amazing true story about all-mighty Broadcom and its leader’s tale of option backdating, sex, drugs and lies.
Broadcom was co founded by Henry Nicholas III, holding a Ph.D in electrical engineering. He helped develop the technology that allows for high speed internet, Bluetooth, iPhone, Nintendo Wii and WiFi. Nicholas says “We essentially invented cable modems”, which was originally the efforts of a system of building microchips for ‘sending data over cable t.v. lines.’ While companies like Motorola and Scientific America took much of the credit for the devices used by millions across the world, one tiny little chip had Broadcom’s name labeled on them.
