Google Jumps The Gun
When Google accidentally released its not-so-rosy third-quarter earnings several hours early this year, its shares dropped by more than 9 percent. And CEO Larry Page (pictured) felt he owed investors an apology.
"Sorry for the scramble earlier today," Page said at the opening of the company's official earnings call.
Google attributed the premature release to a mistake by R.R. Donnelley, which later said it was participating in an investigation of the cause.
