A month ago, when the analysts mis-forecast Google's earnings, many news sources seemed to focus on how Google somehow missed, rather than how this showed that Google really had stuck by its original IPO-filing promise not to give guidance to analysts. Of course, that works great when money is coming in quick and the stock keeps going up -- but now that Google failed to live up to the analysts' own expectations (yes, that statement should be amusing), those analysts are apparently upset and are going to start to push Google to be a bit more talkative concerning expected future earnings. Of course, given Google's past statements on the matter, it seems unlikely that they're going to give in.
