Sorry noob question, I've been bouncing back and forth from different tutorials some are in cycles render and some are in blender render

can i ask what is the big difference? by the looks i am stuck in one when i start to place textures? The first tut was a cup in cycles render, but then i picked up something else on blender render and i've been going that way for a while, other tuts have been going that way anyway. Which should i choose and i gather i will have to stick to it or re adjust all 'graphics'? I've done a bit of searching for a definitive answer but can't find anything :D

I'm surprised there is no cycles render tag.

Thanks for any help :)
