Not only are these types of corporate interviews not new, they're not even being conducted anymore at the companies that made them famous. The book about Microsoft's interviews, How Would You Move Mt. Fuji?, was published over 10 years ago, and by then the practice had been going on for some time. Microsoft and Google have both stopped doing "puzzle interviews", because (a) they don't tell you anything useful about the candidate, and (b) many of the candidates have memorized the answers to many of the questions anyway.
