computer scientist? references?[edit]

As far as I know, Agassi is not doing research in computer science and never did. Unless a computer scientist is a respectable name to a software engineer (which is a respectable name to a programmer), this category membership is wrong.

Very few references included. Plus, yes, a degree in computer science makes a software engineer, not a computer scientist. For the latter you need an advanced degree or substantial experience in the field.

Personal info?[edit]

With all due respect, is this man a Martian? The article says nothing about his personal history, such as family, upbringing, education, personal life, etc. As it is, the article is hardly more than a stub; perhaps it should be tagged as such. --AVM (talk) 19:22, 11 August 2010 (UTC)

Is he really an Iraqi citizen as it says in the infobox?--92.78.102.247 (talk) 19:40, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Hebrew Wikipedia says he is divorced, contrary to the page here...--109.67.222.85 (talk) 00:52, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Why is his religion listed?[edit]

He's ethnically Jewish but I see no source making clear he is religious. Is it relevant either way? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Liquidpappe (talkcontribs) 11:32, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Resigned or fired[edit]

The Israeli press reports that he was fired by the board. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.130.87.18 (talk) 02:42, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

Yes, he's gone. Forbes[1] and Haaretz[2] agree. The company seems to have run out of money. --John Nagle (talk) 06:55, 15 October 2012 (UTC)
He sounds like an utter douche to be honest. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 116.212.182.34 (talk) 17:33, 27 May 2014 (UTC)
Updated the article to reflect the bankruptcy and liquidation. I also removed much of the Better Place hype. Better Place, over its life, generated huge amount of hype, preannounced lots of stuff that didn't happen, and blew through $850 million, but only put 1,400 electric cars on the road. Agassi was in charge until shortly before the bankruptcy. John Nagle (talk) 03:28, 25 September 2014 (UTC)
