Kayla: There was a report over the weekend quoting you that said you had been approached about potentially buying it, that you declined, where are those reports coming from, what is the situation from your vantage point?
Bill: First of all, Meg Whitman is a good friend of mine and she and I never had such a conversation about Autonomy. There was a reporter that incorrectly reported the news, basically. And essentially, my comment was, a long time ago before HP ever bought Autonomy, I was aware of the fact that the company was on the market and SAP had passed on the company because we had invented HANA, which is the greatest in-memory database of all time, so there really wasn’t a business rationale by which SAP could move on autonomy. And subsequent to HP buying Autonomy, there has never been a conversation between SAP and HP to do a deal. I don’t know where that comes from other than it’s incorrect, it’s not factual, and I’m here today to set the record straight, Meg and I never had that conservation.
Bill Griffiths, CNBC: It doesn’t get any clearer than that.
