World: San Francisco - Sun Microsystems under review

The US computer manufacturer Sun Microsystems has put its creative advertising account into review, inviting only San Francisco-based agencies to pitch for the work.

The New York-based agency Arnell Group, part of Omnicom, is the incumbent on the account. Media buying, which is handled by Starcom, is not affected by the review.

According to TNS Media Intelligence CMR, Sun spent $5.5 million on ads in the first seven months of 2004. The company's peak annual spend was $50 million for the year 2000.
