I can imagine a day when I can buy Starbucks coffee by using my PocketPC device and my Passport." It's close. 1. http://www.starbucks.com/retail/default.asp Notice the Passport widget at the top right of the screen. 2. https://www.starbucks-express.com/default.asp lets you order a drink online. Doesn't use passport yet, but I suspect it will.
My comment? No vision, no future. What is Sun bringing to the table that's better than Microsoft's offerings? Can anyone see that Sun is rudderless or am I just smoking better dope lately?
I respond: someday before I die I'd like to see a Duke game with Buzz. That sounds like a lot of fun! Hey, it'd be even better if my son went to school there. Patrick's only 10 years away from college. Scary.
