How in the hell can a "smart phone"[0] ...

... ever be considered a "thin client"?

McNealy, you are completely deluded.

My Sun 3/470 "Pegasus" has close to a dozen IBM 3151 "dumb" terminals attached to it, half of which are modem attached. THAT is thin computing.

“We said the network is the computer, which has become is cloud computing."

No. That's centralized computing. IBM, 1960s.

"We talked about multithreading, which happened."

IBM, 1960s.

"We said the world will move to virtual machines and it did.”

IBM, 1960s.

Hi, Scott ... remember "jake", your SA at Stanford? You are still a clueless idiot when it comes to computing. Have a nice month ;-)

[0] Ever notice that "smart phone" users are universally not, er, uh, "smart"?
