Business diary: Raj's lawyer gets cross
Monday 16 May 2011
CNBC was keen to catch up with John Dowd, attorney to Raj Rajaratnam, after last week's guilty verdict in the Galleon insider trading case. And though the business channel's viewers didn't get the benefit of Mr Dowd's views for long, a clip of what he did say is now being passed round online. "Do you have comment for CNBC?," the cameraman asks. To which Mr Dowd replies "Get the fuck out of here. That's what I've got for CNBC."
Rabbit's good vibrations
undeterred by its recent spat with Marks & Spencer, Ann Summers is poised to press the button on the launch of a new website to promote its new "Rampant Rabbit Touch Vibrator" and associated products.

While we respect Ann Summers as the leader in the erotic underwear and sex toys retail market – the latest vibrator is based on exclusive technology – we are not surprised M&S threatened legal action last month and forced the chain to pull its saucy "Your S&M" promotion from its shop windows and website.
