Recall the last time I posted a Sun acquisition rumor, it turned out to be way wrong. But, hey, I learn slow.

The business journals are reporting today on speculation that Sun is warming up to buy Rambus

Shares of Rambus Inc. rose more than 6 percent Wednesday on speculation that a takeover may be on the table.

Los Altos-based Rambus (NASDAQ:RMBS) closed the day at $16.71 after going as high as $17.15.

One of the potential suitors cited by traders and analysts was Santa Clara-based Sun Microsystems Inc. (NASDAQ:JAVA).
