(Interactive Age Digital 4 Oct 96) Has anyone ever heard of NEST? I think this is Novell's version of the concept of JavaTel. It's suppost to allow any object embeded with this technology to talk to other objects on a network. It seems Novell is admiting failure on thier own NEST product if they support JavaTel.
