Editorial "Despite its current misadventure with Linux, Sun isn't in the generic desktop computer business. The Java desktop is cool, but it's a solution driven by necessity, not excellence. In comparison, putting Mac OS X on the Sunray desktop would be an insanely great solution for Sun." read the rest

Hey! What about the McMac?!

The $499 McMac, the computer Happy Meal of the future!

Could be. We agree with the approach. Tied into an iPod, while leveraging AltiVec and the G4. With the G5 still evolving could be an excellent strategy for Apple. It is an upsell and it might work. In the Apple's fourth quarter, 23 percent of its $2.35 billion in revenue came from iPod sales.

Why not stick with the G4? Could it be a nice fat client for Sun servers? Freescale just has silicon to offer and most Apple computers sold use it. Apple may have gone in the other direction and have alot more working for them than the missing paddle...;-)
