TOKYO -- Forget SoftBank's marauder persona. The company that began as a retailer of packaged computer software is, in a sense, extremely cautious.

     Despite the agility it has demonstrated again and again, SoftBank is not a leap-first kind of player. It always gives data a good going over before jumping. It also never makes a move unless the numbers show a profitable landing. And along the way, the company closely monitors progress, checks on new data sets and makes frequent adjustments.
