Shaq The Lifelong Learner

Last night before bed here in Lugano, Switzerland I wanted to a watch a bit of television but there was one small problem, every station was in Italian or German. So I went to the web and watched a bit of the Daily Show online. One of the clips I watched was this interview with Shaquille O'Neal. In the clip Shaq reveals that he will receive his Phd. this spring. As I watched I couldn't help but be slightly impressed that a man who has earned enough money to buy just about anything has continued to go to further his education. Some people might think it's a publicity stunt, but O'Neal and Stewart put that notion to rest in the interview.

Video Game Dealers - Be Careful With In-app Purchases

Here's a clip from last Thursday's Daily Show about games that offer in-app or in-game purchases through iTunes or other online markets. Of course, the clip is for entertainment, but it does raise a good point about apps and games that start out free only to require purchases to make fully-functional later on. (Sorry to my friends outside of the US, you probably won't be able to see the clip from Hulu that I've embedded below).
