quote: Looking at Autonony's presentation: Graphs showing the quarterly income as a percentage and the whole year doesn't add up to 100? Graphs without scales? Graphs showing Oracle (and, interestingly, HP) as having poor strategic vision? A graph showing Google as performing poorly in the search engine market? Graphs with undefined terms? Using "$MM" for millions of dollars is confusing and looks like obsolete terminology.Ellison and Hurd are the type of people who would have known a whole lot about Autonomy before Lynch and co walked into their office, so when they did their presentation they weren't so much selling the company as the ability of Autonomy's senior management to be trusted. Why would you put percentages in that obviously don't add up to 100 right under the nose of one of the smartest business people in America?
