Java is short for JavaScript. Not!

Here’s  is a quote from the About page  of the Web site “eHow is your one-stop online resource for life’s challenges. Professionals in every field come together to offer expert advice, backed by the additional support of a can-do eHow community.

Experts are also human beings and sometimes they make mistakes too. But when I’ve read the following article I was stunned:


Guys and girls, I’m not an eHow-grade expert, but I’ve been doing both Java and JavaScript for while. Trust me, the above description is absolutely wrong! Please ignore. Also, if you know any of the 35 people who found this helpful, get in touch with them and tell them the truth!

There is well known statement that “Java is to JavaScript as ham is to hamster”. So I’m looking forward to a new article at eHow that will be a creative interpretation of the Wikipedia definition:

“Hamster, aslo known as ham for short, is processed pork foodstuff, which undergoes preservation through curing, smoking, or salting. Hamsters are traditionally made only from the hind leg of swine, and referred to that specific cut of pork.”
