In this week's EIC squared podcast, Dan and I talk about this seemingly never-ending Microsoft-Yahoo saga, chat about the waiting game, ponder the options and note how it could define Steve Ballmer.

Dan talks cloud computing and how Google and IBM are chummy. He also provides a little back story on how he was shunned by IBM CEO Sam Palmisano, but did chat with Google chief Eric Schmidt for a while.

Finally, we talked about Sun's grand plan and how it is still tethered to its legacy hardware business. Will open source make a difference? Sun's quarter wasn't exactly a good preview for next week's JavaOne conference. I'm off to SAP Sapphire next week.
