JAVA overloaded

JAVA is now the stock symbol for Sun, replacing SUNW. This word JAVA has become more overloaded, and can mean at least 3 things: (1) the Java programming language; (2) the Java Island in Indonesia; and (3) the stock symbol for Sun Microsystems.

So every time you google "java", you will have more mixed results to filter out. Unfortunately, the first match by google and msn is the stock chart of Sun Microsystems, Inc. That is a little inconvenient for java developers, but seems a good way to bring attention to Sun's stock.
