I get peeved at Nicholas Carr sometimes, but he’s done a superb piece of work pushing hard on SAP and Oracle for using statistics in their ads in a way that is at best non-transparent and at worst, well let’s not go there. It’s got to the point that whenever I see a quantitative claim in an ad I assume it’s a lie. There should be penalties; public ridicule feels appropriate.
