+ - The Virtues of a Monoculture: Why Microsoft Wins

Submitted by

blackbearnh writes "Why does Microsoft win the development environment war so often, when we all know it's a lifetime lock-in to Windows? Perhaps it's because the open source community offers too much choice, as this blog on the O'Reilly ONLamp site suggests. From the blog:

Microsoft offers the certainty of no choices. Choice isn't always good, and the open source community sometimes offers far too many ways to skin the same cat, choices that are born more out of pride, ego or stubbornness than a genuine need for two different paths. I won't point fingers, everyone knows examples.

Sony's PSP price cut coming to Europe on May 4th->

From feed by engfeed

C'mon, you did think that Sony whippersnapper that confirmed the US PSP price cut was holding back about Europe, didn't you? As these things tend to fall, Europe is getting similar treatment as the US (albeit in a slightly later fashion), as the price of the PlayStation Portable will soon be descending to £130 / €170 (between $231 and $260) across the lake. Additionally, several Platinum titles will be taking a nosedive right along with it, as Ridge Racer 2, Tekken, Killzone, LocoRoco, and Moto GP all sink to £14.99 ($30). Hold your horses before skipping out of work and ripping our your credit card, though, as the price drops aren't slated to take effect until May 4th -- but we'd still recommend keeping a close eye out, as we know all too well how those street dates can fall through hold up.
