'D' wrap up, Al Gore, Sun layoffs, Java, OneCare and more...

Summary:This week on The Dan & David Show, we cover my visit to the D conference, hobnobbing (not really) with the likes of Al Gore, Bill Gates, Terry Semel and Bob Iger. D will be remembered as the conference where Bill Gates came up with a new concept--reality acquisition device--that will quickly fade into obscurity, and for very funny Q&As with Sony CEO Howard Stringer and film director Barry Sonnefeld, with a guest appearance from Martha Stewart.

In addition we discuss Jonathan Schwartz's moves to rotate Sun into a better financial positions, potential avenues to open sourcing Java and the impact of Microsoft's OneCare security service. David also rants about the lack of transparency and disclosure by banks when their Web sites get hacked or hijacked. We also have special guest Doug Kaye of IT Conversations, one of the pioneering podcasting sites, joining me in the studio.
