Steve Gillmor's Emerging Opps [wishful thinking from Sun]

Steve Gillmor's Emerging Opps [wishful thinking from Sun] "[Sun software exec VP Jonathan] Schwartz: Other than that, they have failed, despite their wealth, to penetrate the mobile handset marketplace. They failed utterly. Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Sony, Ericson have just obliterated Microsoft in the mobile handset world. They have failed in the gaming marketplace where Sony has obliterated them. They've failed on the set-top box marketplace where the OCAP (OpenCable Application Platform) standards are going to obliterate them. So Microsoft has failed to do anything other than successfully exploit one product over which they have monopoly control -- which is Windows."

I think the folks at Sun need to spend a bit more time keeping up with industry news.
