The story "Ex-Sun boss McNealy sides with Oracle in Google dispute" that ran on the wire Thursday gave the incorrect year for when McNealy handed the CEO title to Jonathan Schwartz.

The fourth paragraph has been corrected on the wire and now reads as follows:

McNealy co-founded Sun in 1982 and was its chairman and CEO until 2006, when he handed the CEO title to Schwartz. He remained chairman until Oracle bought Sun.
