Oracle and SUN Now that Hewlett-Packard appears to be a little tipsy, not really knowing where it is and what it's doing, Reuters is reporting that the company is working on selling its webOS operating system. HP acquired webOS as part of its purchase of Palm, made a big fuss about the whole thing, and then let it fizzle out. The company rumoured buy webOS? Oracle.

[quote] Well, Oracle has close ties to Apple, since Oracle's CEO, Larry Ellison, was one of Steve Jobs' closest friends. This explains - in large part - Oracle's interest in suing Google over Android's use of Java technologies.[/quote]

Riiiight.

It couldn't possibly be because Oracle stands to make a pile of money if they win the case. And it of course could have nothing to do with Sun highlighting the opportunity to sue Google & Android when selling their company.

No, of course that's too outrageous. The most obvious answer is "it's a conspiracy."
