JAVA PHONE BATTLE BREWING
Sun just won't give up on Java. It is pretty much giving up on keeping it on the desktop, but only because mobile devices seem to offer a more open range, despite the threat of Microsoft's intrusion.

One can only hope that the Java-powered future doesn't result in a bunch of phones with operating systems that crash 3 or 4 times a day. The concept of having to reboot your freakin' phone disturbs me (in fact, several higher-end phones now on the market feature a reboot button).
