"Oracle Corp. chairman Larry Ellison is banking that he didn't have the wrong product five years ago - only the wrong market."
"Ellison unveiled a $199 Internet machine Monday targeted at the education and consumer markets. The presentation was made before an audience of students at a performing arts high school in Dallas."
"Calling it "this amazing $199 computer," Ellison said the device "is going to allow us to put a computer on every child's desk" by 2005."
