Submission + - Best console for the kids this holiday?

undulato writes: "I've got an aging, fat PS3 with only a couple of games that I still play on it but three kids under 9 who love Skylanders, iPet, Lego whatever etc. We all watch movies on it and it has been pretty much the centre of our entertainment world for a few years now.

I've already got a spare HDMI monitor we could use for a screen so my question is — should we go for a new console this Christmas? Just buy another controller or two and a new game or two for PS3 and be done? Or get the still pretty viable Xbox 360, or even plump for a cheap Wii or even a Wii U if we're feeling flush. What does Slashdot think?"

Submission + - Silly season on domains again?

undulato writes: I've owned a dictionary word .com domain since I randomly discovered it as being free on register.com in the late 90s. In the meantime I've had various pet projects up on this site and a few years ago when I was strapped for cash I put it up on Sedo and then promptly forgot about this. The other day I received an offer for the domain out of the blue. While it's not a huge amount it's a good starting bid and even though I don't want to sell the domain at the moment I'm not going to turn down a stupid offer.

So my question is — is it silly season on domain names again and just what is a reasonable price to ask for this kind of domain?

Submission + - Coding clubs for British Schoolkids (bbc.co.uk)

undulato writes: "The BBC are reporting about volunteers organising code clubs for primary school children (aged 10-11 years) undoubtedly off the back of the current wave of interested in the Raspberry Pi and also recent comments by Eric Schmidt. Can this movement stop kids becoming "secretaries rather than programmers"? And if so what's so wrong with secretaries?"
