The Android Gets Its HyperCard

cruelworld Re:Google (256 comments)

Lots of real programming is done with a purely graphical blocks and lines style programming. Labview is one of the more popular ones that does some incredibly sophisticated and complicated programs as well as lots of simple "control this voltage output with this dial" type apps. You could also turn this into a whole "is scripting really programming" debates, but I don't think anyone wants to go there.

US Justice Dept. Investigates IT Hiring Practices

cruelworld Re:Here We Go ... (223 comments)

It's common practice for companies to hire head hunting firms on retainer just so they won't poach their staff, even if they never use them for head hunting services. It's been this way since the 90's.

Wii Update 4.2 Tries (and Fails) To Block Homebrew

cruelworld Re:They can probably recover at the repair depot (520 comments)

The Coming Problems For Rolling Out 3D TV

cruelworld console wars (232 comments)

The next generation game consoles will support 3D TV's. I suspect that much like the PS3 driving bluray adoption whatever format the winning console chooses will be the new 3D TV format of choice.

People forget but real HDTV's came out more than 9 years ago. In the start there wasn't any HD content to watch either; just upconverted DVD's. But now every one I know has a HDTV set.
