Internet Security Threat Report 2014

More details have emerged about Sun's plans for its Corona device, now expected towards the end of September. According to Om Mallik at Forbes, the Corona, likely to cost around $500, comes in an 8 x 10 x 2 inch form factor, and will be branded in the familiar Sun Micro colours. The slim thing, as reported here last week, will come with a smart card slot, Fast Ethernet and other useful slots, for keyboards, for example. Chip boffins at Sun are attempting to integrate all functions on a single chip, Forbes claims. The report adds facts and figures about potential market penetration and prices. Very Thin Client (VTC) it is not, yet. However, Sun has made headway penetrating the corporate market and the unit will be offered to business customers at reasonably chipper prices... ® RegisTroid 1999 Overheard on a London bus yesterday: "I don't believe in that eclipse stuff, do you?". Sigh.
