California Wants To Ditch Sketchy Oracle Deal

First comes the news that California and Oracle will ditch the agreement (despite Oracle’s claims that the state audit of the deal is wrong and that it will save the state millions of dolalrs), but SF Gate says that won’t be very easy. Meanwhile, the San Jose Mercury News explains how Oracle and the state of California got into this mess in the first place.
