This week on the Dan & David Show we discuss Sun's transformation on Wall Street. The stock price hasn't risen above $5 but the stock symbol changed from SUNW to JAVA. I can understand why salesforce.com took CRM as its ticker symbol, but it's not clear what behind Sun's move, other than trying to replace an image of Sun as hardware and chip maker with that of the software company that brings you Java.

We also talk about Facebook's ad targeting effort, SAP's social networking conservatism and spy agencies experimenting with social networks. David also Tech Shakedowns with Vista and Firefox, and beams about the audio/video studio he is building in the basement of his house (more pictures of the studio build out here).
