Oracle buys AppForge? Rumour: ON
The Oracle search engine draws a blank on "appforge". The Google cache of the AppForge home page has been invalidated. On the wider net there doesn't seem to be much news about AppForge apart from this recent story on The Register which suggests AppForge is in financial trouble.
So has Larry been shopping again? AppForge is some kind of programming kit for "mobile application development using C#, VB.NET or Visual Basic 6", which doesn't seem like a good fit with Oracle's current tool set. On the other hand, Oracle have been doing things in the mobile apps space for some time now. Maybe they need more .Net apps to achieve greater market penetration.
