Oracle and SUN "Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said the software maker had considered building its own smartphone to compete with Apple and Google but decided it was a 'bad idea' after a weeks-long cost and market analysis. As part of that exhaustive internal analysis, he said, Oracle had pondered at one point buying Blackberry-maker RIM and Palm." So, Larry (likely after consulting with his best friend Jobs) decided to try to extort money from Google instead - which isn't working out either. Did you analyse that, too, Larry?

What hasn't Oracle considered buying?

LOL, I remember seeing a show called 'Most Evil', where they gave serial killers a rating on a points scale to determine how evil they were. If you used such a scale to rate tech companies, I think Oracle would be way up there.
