Sun and Google will announce a partnership today. Theories on what the two companies will be announcing are running wild.

What is known for sure is that Scott McNealy, Sun Microsystems Chairman and CEO and Dr. Eric Schmidt, Google Chairman of the Executive Committee and CEO will hold a press-conference today at 10:30am PDT in Mountain View.
