Well, That Could Have Gone Better

If any of you base actual investments on my comments to Bloomberg TV regarding Sun’s reported earnings today, you have my sympathies. Despite emphasizing in two separate conversations that I was not in fact a financial analyst, the only questions I fielded today in a 60 second over the phone appearance were profit and margin related. Questions, in other words, that I’m eminently not qualified to answer, as balance sheets aren’t exactly my game.

I stumbled through them as best I could, and hopefully didn’t make too much of an ass of myself, but I accept no responsibility for the commentary one way or another. Repeat after me: we don’t do numbers. My assumption that they were seeking a technology rather than financial perspective based on our conversations was apparently faulty in the extreme.

In other news, the MySQL show has been great thus far – more on that in a bit.

    When were you on? Curiously on this same day the Dow hit a record 13,000 but SUNW dropped 11.3%….

    Don’t worry about me – I don’t own any SUNW shares ;-)
