- SCO's Q2 earnings are out now. (Press release here.) Ouch! Ok, so the numbers aren't quite as bad as they used to be, but they're still losing money even after all those layoffs, and first half revenue declined close to 17% compared to first half '06.
At least they'll last until the cases go to trial, if the present burn rate holds. If you're like me, and you'd much rather see SCO lose decisively in court instead of going bankrupt and leaving matters unresolved, these numbers are pretty much ideal.
- SCO's Q2 conference call is coming up in an hour or so. The audio will be here, for anyone who feels like listening.
- The stock was wayyyy up again today. I don't get it. I really don't.
- SJVN: "Why did Microsoft and Sun support SCO?"
- Forbes: "Microsoft's Protection Racket?"
- CP80 is making a cameo at the G8 summit, of all places. Seems there's a nice glossy "G8 Magazine" that gets produced every time they hold one of these meetings, and it's distributed free to a select group of elite decision makers. Oh, and members of Congress, too.
So on top of all the other benefits of being among the rich & powerful, you also get all the birdcage lining you'll ever need, absolutely free. It just isn't fair, I tell ya.
- Someone else might be in the "Clean Internet Port" biz.
- Scooter Libby just got 30 months in the slammer. This would be completely OT, except that during the trial Boies chimed in to insist Libby shouldn't have been prosecuted. (This appeared on SNR here, back in March.) Apparently the judge didn't see it quite that way.
- The trolls on Y! have been making "TO TEH MOON" noises all day, but that's hardly ambitious, is it? NASA's MESSENGER probe is flying past Venus later today on its way to Mercury. Cool photos to follow, probably.
