Short Take: U.S. Navy to test Sun thin clients

The U.S. Navy will try out Sun Microsystems' thin client, the Sun Ray 1, aboard the USS Coronado's "battle lab," the company said. The ship will use 27 of the devices--basically a glorified screen with a slot for an identity card and a connection to a central server that runs the software and stores data. The clients will be used to receive streaming video and audio across the ship.
