Google Plans to Partner With Sun

Another week and another partnership for Google. This time it involves Sun, not the star but the computer company. Of course, with Google’s new deal with NASA, maybe Larry, Sergey and Eric have some a plan to harness the power of the Sun (we do know they have power issues) and Sun Microsystems is also involved. Ok, sorry, enough of me trying to be funny. Beta News and others are reporting that Google and Sun Microsystems will announce a collaboration project during a press conference tomorrow morning at The Computer History Museum in San Jose.

The press conference will begin at 10:30am PDST/1:30pm EDST and will be webcast here. Btw, when Google Earth launched Google registered the domain GoogleSun.com.

Postscript: News.com speculates on what might be announced saying that it, could shift personal computing out of Microsoft’s domain and into Google’s.” Wow, that’s a lot of speculation. Much of the talk about what’s up focuses around Google and Sun doing something together with Sun’s free, open source, OpenOffice software suite.
