Xircom Inc., a Thousand Oaks computer network developer, said its revenues for the quarter ending June 30 will be $50 million, or 15% lower than the $58.5 million currently expected by Wall Street analysts. The company said the lower sales projection is due to sluggish PC Card sales for its third quarter. "The U.S. market is experiencing strong demand but limited availability for the new high-end MMX-equipped portable computers," said Xircom president and CEO Dirk Gates.

A Ventura County judge Monday temporarily blocked Xircom Inc.'s attempt to unmask an anonymous online critic. But the ruling was based on a legal technicality, and the judge indicated that he was not swayed by arguments that Xircom's efforts violate free speech. The ruling comes amid a surge in the number of subpoenas issued by public companies seeking to uncover the identities of their online foes. The tactic has raised concern among Internet free-speech advocates that companies are abusing the legal process solely to intimidate critics.
