Is the Sun setting?

Cringely says:

Cheap Intel and AMD hardware running Linux is going to kill Sun unless the company does something so stop it, which they aren't.

Funny. I've been saying that for a few years now. I don't know how blind Sun can be, but they're really bad about seeing the writing on the wall. It's in neon 10-foot tall letters for god's sake!

I'm beginning to think that the LX50 I reviewed last year was less a sign of Sun finally getting it and more a last ditch attempt by the remaining Cobalt folks to keep Sun relevant.

Not Cyber

Why is the media still using "cyber" in front of things? I heard a snipit on TV about a story on the news about police using "cyber technology" to track down crime.

What the heck is "cyber technology"? They showed a picture of an IBM Thinkpad with some web site on it? That is cyber technology?


What is not cyber technology?

There. Enough of my bitching for a little while.
