Google Simple Programming Language

Google has invented a new programming language called Simple. It’s a Visual Basic clone for building Android apps. What? Why? The project lead at Google, Herbert Czymontek, used to work at Sun on Project Semplice which was going to be Visual Basic for the Java platform. (It’s probably no coincidence that Semplice is the Italian word for Simple). The main intention of Project Semplice was to get VB developers to come develop applications for the Java Platform. So now, it seems that Google is trying to get these same VB developers to come develop applications for Android. I don’t see that happening.
