McNealy: Rattling Cages is Good for Sun Posted: Mar 24, 2003 9:56 PM

Scott McNealy says, "Being controversial helps Sun Microsystems stand out in a highly commoditized technology market...I can't worry about skepticism. If there's no controversy, and everybody buys into our ideas and follows them, there is no chance of making money."

Read this CNET article by Winston Chai here:

Here's an excerpt:

McNealy envisioned a world where handheld devices and Java smart cards will provide users with secure mobility and ubiquitous access to the Internet, possibly rendering the present-day PC redundant. As an example, user identities can be stored in Java smart cards while their desktop information and applications are saved on the enterprise server.

What do you think of McNealy's vision?
