    Re: News - Oracle and Autonomy CEOs in public cat-fight

    The point Ellison seems to be trying to hammer home is that HP is overpaying for Autonomy.
    So the next WSJ headline will presumably be "Ellison shocked by the defecatory habits of woodland-dwelling bears"?

    Everyone knows that HP over paid for Autonomy and it - along with the farcical way PSG was mis-spun - was the reason that LA got his marching orders.

    What amuses me is that "St Larry" should be so hacked off by it - as Scott B points out, if one of your competitors "screws the pooch" then surely that's an occasion for some well-deserved mirth and finger-pointing? Leads me to wonder if maybe LA's purchase of Autonomy wasn't as coyote-crazy as I first thought.

    Wonder if we'll see HP continue Autonomy's shirt sponsorship of Spurs football club (http://www.tottenhamhotspur.com/news...my-080710.html)?

    As a Spurs fan I can confirm the sponsorship works. As soon as I saw Autonomy on the shirt I had an irresistible urge to buy some unstructured database products.
