Oracle announced the acquisition of Sun a week back. I think this is the hottest news in the tech-market now. This aquisition came after IBM cancelled the acquisition talks with Sun just 3 weeks back.
On the acquisition, just a small thought:
1) MySQL becomes the latest addition to Oracle's database family, MySQL was acquired by Sun last year.
2) With the aquisition it looks like Oracle wants to broaden its services into hardware as well.
