re: Oracle Earnings Rebound: All Eyes On OpenWorld
Gotta say, Wednesday's Oracle conference call with analysts was pretty lackluster without Ellison on the call to keep things edgy. Catz was all caution and "I read the same news stories and accounts of the economy that you do." Hurd was the salesman as usual -- "Taleo is doing great, RightNow is doing great, Engineered Systems are doing great."

Ellison was off watching his America's Cup team. The race happens every seven years and he has big bucks sunk into crews and yachts. I can't blame him for ducking out of a conference call with financial analysts. Those happen every quarter - and it's not like this was the fourth quarter. I can't recall hearing an IBM CEO on an analyst call. It's always CFO Mark Loughridge on his own.
