I’ve had a morning of it. It’s not so much that I can’t handle paperwork, it’s that when you get through about 3 hours of it, you realise you haven’t achieved anything all day. And that’s frustrating.
Oh well. It’s been an interesting morning in news at least.
1. NSW Opposition Leader, and Leader of the Liberal Party, John Brogden has resigned as Leader after calling former Premier Bob Carr’s wife a “mail order bride” and pinching a journo on the bum at a press conference last month.
2. Fairfax has announced annual net profit of $259.69 million, down from the $276.01 million reported in the previous year.
3. Adobe and Macromedia shareholders have approved the merger of the two mega-powers of graphic development.
4. Days after the announcement of the Intel-Unwired Australia deal, the company’s CEO Peter Shore has resigned.
Interesting morning indeed.
EDIT: Late entry…
6. Stocks have dropped in light of rising oil costs on the Australian sharemarket. From AFP: “National turnover at 1230 AEST was 449.75 million shares traded for a total value of $1.67 billion with 307 stocks moving up, 526 falling and 306 unchanged.”
