Sun Blew its "iPhone" Java Opportunity to AJAX

Frank Cohen's Blog Today is US Independence day and I stopped at the Apple store to see the iPhone, and ask questions about the new MacBook Pro. I wanted to see the iPhone in person to learn what I should expect from mobile phone people interaction and feature sets.

(The CPU in my PowerBook constantly wants to burn its way through my lap on its return to the molten core of Earth.) Being a Java and Mac guy I looked for Java on iPhone. Java is no where to be found. For years I've listened to Jonathan Schwartz, CEO a... (more)
