Acme Shuffle

11:35 AM -- In an unfair way, I'm amused by Acme Packet Inc. (Nasdaq: APKT) rescheduling its earnings call. It was set for Nov. 7, but Acme changed the date today, to Nov. 6, citing conflicts with "certain other conference calls" on the 7th.

I don't know if they're talking about Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO), but, well -- Cisco's earnings go into my datebook in pen, let's put it that way.

Kudos to Acme for moving the date forward a day, anyway. If they'd pushed it back, to the 12th or 13th, say, the rumors would fly.

Actually, wait. Might there be some reason for the Acme guys to be on the Cisco call? Maybe that was the real conflict. (WARNING: Irresponsible speculation provided for entertainment purposes only. No genuine rumor implied.)
