There will be a very big opportunity for something that ties all these platforms together in the near future.

My iPhone has its own development platform
My wife's Android phone the same
My LG TV has its own App API
My Philips Blue ray player has its own App API
Samsung just announced its going to develop yet another OS for mobile phones...

The market is fragmenting so fast its with all these "App" platforms, that there will be a great incentive for the first to create the "write once" , "run everywhere" tool chain. This will of course take a few years, but so many different platforms cannot be sustained.

First comment on the original article regarding getting their money back....

Oh, and here's a nice bit of dodginess:

"The costs of the venture should have been lessened by the contracts signed by the IT providers making them liable for huge sums of money if they withdrew from the project; however, when Accenture withdrew in September 2006, then Director-General for NPfIT Richard Granger charged them not £1bn, as the contract permitted, but just £63m. Granger's first job was with Andersen Consulting, which later became Accenture."

  1. The Sony HMZ-T1 is a personal 3D viewer with HD resolution (1,280x720px) delivered through two newly developed 0.7-inch OLED panels.
  2. The Sony HMZ-T1 does not feature a head tracker. With a head tracker you could use the HMD for 3D games.
  3. The 3D viewing experience with the HMZ-T1 is like viewing a 750-inch screen from 20m distance.

They are probably making lots of money from bored housewifes playing "casual" games -- not from the Real software that was once their core product.

They sued Microsoft ages ago, settled in 2005 for 76mln and bought several online gaming sites from the cash.
