Larry Ellison became the Michael Jordan of Oracle (not by leaving the game, playing the minor leagues, and coming back to much fanfare — that's Steve Jobs) when he forgot to tape over an embarrassing logo on a widely viewed video.

Somehow, the Oracle CEO ended up in an old shirt with a Compaq logo. He wore it for a video shown at Hewlett-Packard — Compaq's old rival and, since 2002, owner.

Weird thing is, CNET blogger Stephen Shankland says Larry remembered to tape over the logo in January. What kind of game is he playing here? Somewhere in the billions, Larry, is room to buy a new shirt.
