ZombiU trailer shows some of the new interactions on the Wii U. I'm trying to stay open-minded about it, but I have some serious doubts. They're trying to increase immersion, but it might actually back-fire. When you're focused on one screen, your environment around you starts to fade away. But I have a feeling that this constant back and forth between two screens might prevent that from happening. Also, not every game will use the tablet screen to such an extent, so you end up with a gigantic controller that could get tiring after a while. However, I appreciate Nintendo trying something new, so I hope they can prove me wrong.

Interesting take on advertising: watch ads to "earn" media time.

Square Enix is jumping on the Cloud Gaming bandwagon, but that's not the exciting part. According to this article, players will "earn" game time by watching ads, i.e. watch a 1-minute commercial to earn 10 minutes game time.
If this works for gaming, why wouldn't it work for watching TV/movies? Hulu could try a similar approach. I can't speak from experience, but this seems less annoying to me than getting randomly interrupted with commercials.

Myspace is coming back! Don't worry, you can just sign in with Facebook now, so you can quickly add all your Facebook friends to Myspace. And anytime you want to share stuff with your Facebook friends, you can just use Myspace. What a neat idea!

Capacitive ink offers new ways to interact with touch devices. I like how this isn't actually new tech; it's just a multi-touch pattern printed on a card. Cheaper than NFC or RFID, and more elegant/user-friendly than QR codes.
