IBM's Lotus Software revenue was up 12% year-on-year in Q3 2005, and that makes four consecutive quarters of growth for Lotus, going back to Q4 2004, and three quarters of double-digit growth. (Note: Jerry is reporting that it's just three quarters of double-digit growth, but I thought Q4 2004 was also double-digit. Perhaps what I'm remembering is a composite of Q4 '04 and Q1 '05 being double-digit. In any case, I'm sure Ed will clear it up soon enough.)


Take that! you nattering nabobs of negativism!

Thanks, Ed. Going for five!

And btw: extra points for anyone who identifies the source of the alliterative phrase above -- without googling it.

Hey, I just blockquote from the Prepared Remarks PDF that Investor Relations publishes. Talk to them.

Btw, Spiro Agnew. Google ain't the only reference out there. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nattering_nabobs

Plus I have references that say the 4Q04 Lotus revenue was only up 5%. Here: http://www.ibm.com/investor/4q04/presentation/4q04prepared.pdf

Notes/Domino revenue in Q4 2004 was up 9.5% (rounded up to 10%), even if overall brand revenue grew less sharply.

Ahhhh, Ed... so many statistics to choose from But that's the important one. Maybe not to the accountants, but certainly to me and a whole lot of my friends and customers. Not to mention to certain analysts.

@Jerry: good call, and nice reference. I had not idea that the phrase had such a distinguished history prior to the '60s. BTW... I guess the standard "without googling" tag is going to have to be replaced by "without googleing or wikipedia-ing"
