"Oracle's first New Internet Computers (NICs) are fetching
bids of more than $550--more than the expected retail price tag--on
an Amazon.com auction."
"Although the first 10 NICs being auctioned come with
certificates of authenticity signed by chief executive Larry
Ellison himself, the current auction price tag (excluding $59 for
shipping) far exceeds the expected retail price for these computers
when they hit the shelves next week."
"The New Internet Computer Co. (NICC), a division of Oracle,
plans to sell the appliances on its Web site. With a monitor, the
NICs will cost $328--still less [than] the latest bids on Amazon.
Without a monitor, the NIC will sell for $199."
