Project Desert Sand (storm): Oasis: A Java ME puzzle for your cell phone

Instead of spreading our myopic view of what democracy is throughout the Middle East as some ex-Secretaries of Defense would have us believe we should do, why can't we build some nice irrigation channels with Java ME technology?

Oasis Game for your Java ME mobile phone

Here's a quote:

 Drought!!! Sandstorm has dried out 
 channels! Restore the channel 
 system in Sahara desert and make 
 the oasis alive.
Ah, there. Don't you feel much better now. Java ME promotes World Peace, a fine thing during the holiday season. :-)

Yahoo! A Java ME technology-enabled banner day

Yahoo! is going to add banner ads to their mobile services (like Mobile Search) on Java ME technology-enabled cell phones. A little tit-for-tat going on with Google, I see...

See:

Yahoo banner ads on your Java ME cell phone

Here's a quote:

 "Total numbers of consumers using 
 mobile Internet or data services 
 have really just taken off over 
 the past year," Leverich said.

 She pointed to increased user-
 awareness of the services 
 available, better mobile 
 devices, and faster mobile 
 networks. 
Well, if Yahoo! and Google are fighting it out over mobile customers (Yahoo! Mobile Search banner ads vs. Google Mobile GMail), it can only be good news for Java ME technology I would think. It's like Tupac and Biggie Smalls all over again. The question is: Which one is Biggie Smalls and which one is Tupac?

  Grab your glocks when you see 2pac
  Call the cops when you see 2pac, Uhh
  Who shot me,
  But, your punks didn't finish
  Now, you 'bout to feel the wrath of a menace
  <Engineers>, We hit 'em up
    Hit Em Up, Tupac
