The best news in tech this year has been today's deal between Google and Sun. I think it has the possibility to change the landscpe of the IT industry. Other news and products I am following closely are: Nokia 770, Tomboy, MIT's $100 laptop, Sony PS3, and Ubuntu. CNET has a nice stoy and Google and Sun's tie up.
Discussion on the economy, Linux, Open Source, GTD, stock markets and everything else under the Sun.
