3D TV: Avatar or Ishtar?

I'll pass

Not interested. Don't care about 3D television. In particular I'm not interested in the silly glasses required at this point. I already wear glasses and I'm not about to start stacking them. Tell the manufacturers to shut down the hype machine. It's getting boring.

I have one thing to say to Google...

...bull excrement. I'm not buying it. Something that broken could never have passed through any competent security expert.

wait a minute

So if I install a natural gas powered electric generator, or even a diesel powered one, and run my house off that I can claim it to be zero energy?

<head pounding on wall>

I'm having some difficulty with that.

Oracle will put an Oracley (ie. steep) price tag on everything.

Engineers sweat Oracle's Sun-Java integration promise

Brian D. Switzer 1

seriously?

We have 10 production Java application servers (WebSphere in our case) that require next to no daily maintenance. Now the applications that run in them are a different matter. Some of those require handholding. But that's true of any poorly written application.

Word nemesis: Microsoft deliberately 'destroyed' our business

If the claim is true...

The lesson here is don't partner with Microsoft.

Then again, even if the claim is false there's enough evidence through the years to warn against partnering with Microsoft anyway.
