WordPress 2.9 arrives, with an image editor and a trash folder (Download Squad)

Anything for a few extra bucks, eh guys?

Duo brings pen-based computing to almost any display (Engadget)

Aug 25th 2009 5:08PM I'm not seeing any reason you couldn't just clip that thing onto a sheet of perspex and use it as a tablet, tbh. Or hell, clip it on your desk, it should work fine.

Impressions: Iron Man 2 (Joystiq)

Aug 20th 2009 8:20PM QTEs, On-rail sections, erratic camera and inability to lock on, topped off with those annoying "Hammer this button to not die" events.

Will there be *any* reason to buy this game?

Avcen Jetpod inventor killed in test flight crash (Engadget)

Aug 17th 2009 6:38AM Insensitive jerk much?

Besides, if it's "spiralling towards the ground" ejecting's going to either fire you head-first into the dirt at high speed or send you on an unpredictable trajectory at high speed, bringing with it all kinds of dangers (angular momentum ftw)
