It's been a busy few days highlighted by Macworld and activity on the merger & acquisition front. This week on the Between the Lines podcast, Larry and I give our impressions on the latest Macworld revelations by Steve Jobs. It was clear that Jobs took great pride in the new MacBook Air, which he declared the thinnest notebook computer in the world, but who is the target customer?

We also discuss the acquisition of BEA by Oracle (not surprising), Sun's $1 billion payout for MySQL (surprising but in line with Sun's focus on open source and infrastructure), and SAP's addition of Business Objects (good move).

In addition, we touch on salesforce.com's latest announcements and Yahoo adopting OpenID.
