Saudi spin doctors reverse course and appear before Congress.

After finally accepting subpoenas, the House of Saud's lobbyists and PR 
flacks are

belatedly appearing before a congressional committee Wednesday morning to 
answer for their roles in helping the Saudi government deny freedom to scores 
of American citizens. The Saudi spin doctors — Jack Deschauer (partner at 
Patton Boggs), Michael Petruzzello (managing partner of Qorvis 
Communications), and Jamie Gallagher (president of the Gallagher Group) — 
have decided not to repeat their noshows from last week's hearing, although 
they still have no intention of aiding Congress in its quest to rescue 
American citizens unable to leave the desert prison.

By Larisa Brass, News-Sentinel business writer

secrets from GE Medical Systems took another turn last week after a Kansas 
district court judge issued his second injunction against CTI and a former GE 
employee who now works there.
The restraining order bars CTI from deleting any electronic data or 
destroying other documents it may have received from Lawrence Kessler while 
he was still an employee at Wisconsin-based GE Medical Systems. The suit was 
filed in Kansas because that's where Kessler lived and worked for GE.

Is It Wrong to Guess at URLs You Weren't Meant to Find?

by Sandy Kendall

Journalists and similar literary drudges are used to being called hacks, but 
recently a Reuters journalist has been called a hacker, with criminal charges 

On Oct. 24, Reuters published the (disappointing) third-quarter earnings 
results ofSwedish enterprise solutions vendor Intentia before the company had 
released them.How? According to Reuters, by guessing the URL where the 
information might be stored,and finding it there. The information was not 
meant to be public, but Intentia had put iton its Web server. It was not 
password-protected, but there were no links to it normention of the page’s 
URL anywhere. Nonetheless it was easy for the enterprisingjournalist to guess 
because the URL was the same as that of the publicized secondquarter results 
page, with a “Q3” instead of a “Q2”. Bloomberg reported Intentia’s 
shareprice fell 23 percent on the day. Which, of course, might have happened
