It looks like Mehdi Ali is a border line con artist who bled the company while providing a negative contribution during his whole stay with C=.
Of course Gould, the man who saved CBM and destroyed CBM.

They made a great team Gould and Tramiel. Shame they fell out. CBM might still be around today if they didn't.
