Autonomy Criticizes Merrill
from the bad-analysts dept
Anyone else notice that companies are getting a bit more bitchy about analysts in these down times? First Amazon shoots back at the analyst that criticizes them, and now Autonomy has gotten pissed off at Merrill Lynch for suggesting that Microsoft hired away some of their employees to build a competing product. I think this is a good thing. If the analysts are saying things that are simply wrong, the companies should be loud in their protests. People take analysts way too seriously.
